Did you know that there is an entire week dedicated to writing letters of appreciation? National Write a Letter of Appreciation Week kicks off on March 1st and is a great opportunity to take a little time to give thanks to someone. Now that we live in the digital age, hand-written thank you notes are all the more thoughtful and appreciated.
For National Write a Letter of Appreciation week, you can write a letter to anyone who has done something – big or small – for you. For example, you could write a letter to a neighbor who recently had your family over for dinner or to a relative who sent you a nice birthday gift. You can also use this week as an opportunity to show your appreciation for those people that keep you and your family safe, like the crossing guard who helps children cross the street safely on their way to school. The possibilities are endless!
We especially like the idea of sending thank you letters to the men and women in our military in honor of National Write a Letter of Appreciation Week. During the holidays our military men and women often receive notes, care packages and gifts from family, friends and even strangers. Imagine what a nice surprise it would be for them to receive a kind letter that simply thanks them for their service now that the holidays have come and gone.
To make the surprise even sweeter, you could pair your letter with a gift of delectable foods from Hickory Farms. Our military gifts include Our Finest Mixed Nuts Gift Tin and Our Deluxe Signature Sausage & Cheese Gift Box filled with our Signature Beef, Summer Sausage, Smoked Cheddar, and more. Gourmet food gifts like these are a fabulous way to not only say “thank you,” but give your recipient a taste of home, too.
