I have very arthritic hands and have found, surprisingly enough that they don't bother me half as much on the keyboard as they do with pen and paper. But I do believe in thanking whoever gave me a gift. So, they might receive a card I have made on the computer, an email note if they are far away (but always done very personally with a picture or graphics I have done), a phone call or if they gave me something in a container, it will ALWAYS go back to them with something I have made in my kitchen. The forms change but the thank you is always there.

We write thank you notes for any gift we receive (and send out Christmas cards to those that sent us ones), but don't require or expect any in return.
