    Miss Conduct

    When thank-you seems insufficient

    How do you thank ultra-generous friends and family? Plus, lack of follow-through from an inviter.

    > Our son was the seventh boy born into my husband’s side of the family, and we have been blessed with an obscene number of hand-me-downs — most recently a wooden swing set worth some $3,000. While our family members claim that we’re helping them clean out their basements, they’re saving us countless dollars and effort. I am a diehard thank you note writer, but it doesn’t seem enough. Help!
