I think it is nice to send a thank you note as quickly as possible, while the party is still fresh in everyone's mind. When people send thank you notes months later, it doesn't feel as sincere.

There are so many cute thank you note options, so pick a fun one and it might help motivate you to write them!

thank you

    Two weeks is optimal, one month is acceptable, and anything after that is....well...the person just needs to appreciate getting any thank you at all. LOL

    As a major procrastinator I can say from experience that the longer you wait and/or put off writing the thank you notes....the less likely it is that you'll ever do it!!

    I would say you should start writing your thank you notes the day after. The first week is the most polite, but I think 2 weeks would still be ok, tho not ideal. And certainly the very latest!

    I figure mass Yahoo email would do the trick and those that gave no gifts can get that wonderful "um honey did u send a gift" empty-induced feeling. Thank Gate-ness for mass emails

    For a simple party where you had a nice time and the host put forth noticeable effort, two weeks maximum; for an event where your are the guest of honor or a gift recipient, a month; for a wedding gift, the etiquette books say up to a year (but in my estimation, if you wait more than three months, you're scum).

    I usually don't write thank-you notes for parties. I do send them when someone actually helped me out, in which case I never wait longer than a week.

    Next day or two, try to do it before gifts start being put away. I like to thank people specifically for what they took their time and thoughts to buy. I could at least show I appreciate how much they put into getting me/us something or baking something, or at even just getting a sitter so they could show up!

    I think that if you bring something, like flowers or wine, you don't need to send a thank you note. But, to win mega points, do! Also, if the party was not by written invitation, or if it was huge, no need!

    Just getting a written thank you is a treat. Two weeks would be better but some events cannot meet that schedule.

    As soon as possible is best, but a month is still within the window of time when it's better to send one than to forget it altogether. I also think it's acceptable not to send one if you get a chance to sincerely thank the host in person after the party.

    It used to be one week. :)

    It also depends on whether YOU hosted the party or were a guest of honor -- if the latter, you should write the hostess the next day.
