Email and Ecard Thank You Notes
Hi, A coworker threw me a shower at work and I want to send either an email as a thank you note or an e-card. (This was how the shower invite was sent out.) Is it ok to send a personalized thank you note via email or e-card? Thanks!
Thank you for your etiquette question. The absolute "best" way to say thank you is with a personalized thank you note that you can give them. I know it is a lot quicker to type up an email or send an ecard to your guests, but the way etiquette rules currently stand, it might not be the best way to communicate your thanks to them. Nothing says thank you better to your guests than a thoughtful, handwritten note.
I'm sure that people do send emails as thank you cards, but it is not commonplace. I have been to a large amount of baby showers and have never received a thank you ecard or email. The most common compliant I hear about emails is how impersonal they are.
It is of course, your choice on how you thank your guests. An email or ecard is better than sending nothing, but it will be hard to know what your guests reactions will be to it. Most probably will be fine, but you might get some complaints.
Best Of Luck!
