It's the thought that counts. That's why simply receiving a thank-you note will bring a smile to the face of the person who gave you the gift.

Though this day is observed on December 26th, and is intended to make us think about the kind people who gave us Christmas presents, it's a thoughtful act to do at any time of the year.

If you are struggling for the words, here are some good examples of thank-you notes to send to someone after receiving a gift:
