Someone once taught me that you should start every thank-you card with something other than "thank you." Lead with a declaration: "Margaret, these socks RULE." Or overexaggerate in the name of poetic license: "Margaret, these socks are so lovely that wearing them is like having a pet rainbow on my feet." Let Russel + Hazel's gold-embossed question, "Oh, How Did You Know" break the writer's block ice for you and get your pen moving. Whatever you end up saying, snail mail trumps texting in the gratitude department.
