How should I address thank you note to sister in law ?

How should I address thank you note to my sister in law. She and I do not speak and she sent my daughter a birthday gift.

Thank you for your advice


This is a problem that so many people ask about, so I'm glad you have posted the question!

You don't mention how old your daughter is, so I have assumed that she is too young to write a thank you letter herself. Of course if she can put pen to paper and write her own thank you note – even a very naïve, brief one, getting her to write the note would be your best option.

Whatever the state of your relationship with your sister-in-law, the simple fact is that she has taken the time to choose and send a gift to your daughter. She deserves the courtesy of a thank you note. It doesn't mean you will speak to her now or in the future, but it will signal to her that you appreciate the gift for your daughter.

If you need inspiration to help you write your daughter's birthday thank you note, you'll find lots of ideas and sample birthday thank you wording here.

Thank you again for taking the time to post your question – and do come back to visit Thank You Note again soon.
