How to Write a Gift Letter

by WriteExpress Staff Writers

  1. Don't procrastinate sending this letter! It will be much more meaningful if sent before or soon after the event that prompted the gift.
  2. Letters to accompany gifts can usually be short. However, if you are sending a gift to cheer someone up during an illness or after someone’s passing, etc., you may wish to write a longer, more substantive letter.
