According to the etiquette experts, Debrett’s, we should all be putting pen to paper to thank friends and family for our kids’ Christmas presents right about now. (In fact…right about now would be too late, as their general rule is that thank you letters should be sent within a week to ten days of an event or receipt of a present). They say a handwritten letter is preferable and that a thank you text is rude.

Mum-life is a busy one and the to-do list is never ending. However, do you make time to send thank you cards from your children? Would you call to say thank you? Or does a text or email suffice?
