There is no better family tradition to begin than teaching your children (and sprucing up your own) manners.

While the gift giving season is in full force, this is the perfect time to go out and purchase a nice set of Thank You Cards. I found these beautiful letterpress cards at Target just the other day that I think are just fantastic (and they are available online for purchase!)

There is nothing better than a handwritten thank you note in the mail to make someones day and to truly show your thanks. And for children, if you get them in the habit of it at a young age – it is sure to last a lifetime. What a great stocking stuffer – and a wonderful New Years resolution!
