How to write a thank you note

Writing a thank you note does not necessarily have to be difficult and take a lot of time. Here's a simple formula that works for any occasion you may need a thank you note.
Express your gratitude and name the gift or gesture you received.
Write a sentence or two about how you can benefit from the gifts or gestures received.
Finally, talk about the next time you hope to talk or see each other.

Handwritten thank-you notes are the ideal option, but now emailed notes are also considered acceptable, especially if it is an occasion for which promptness is important.
