I think it depends on the situation when you are recieving the gifts. For Christmas and birthdays I do not send thank you notes. For graduations, weddings, baby showers, and other special occasions I feel it is good to write a thank you note to whomever gave you a gift. It just shows gratitude. I don't think it would be a bad idea to send Thank You's on Christmas and for birthdays, it's just something I don't do.

Debbie I received a gift from a client for Christmas.  I was/am overwhelmed.  Not quite sure how to express my gratitude in the time he had to spend on this item, without it seeming cheesy?  etc.  Funny you ask the question when I am in the middle of being at a loss.  Mark
