To those grandparents who never get a thank you note from their grandchildren for gifts, leaving it up to your children to teach them might be futile. I suggest that instead, your grandchildren may become more interested in writing notes if they have personalized stationery, stamps, and an address book of their own, like a grown up.
You could give them this as a gift (filling in the important addresses for them) and clearly, their thank yous will now mean so much more than if they'd been forced to send them by their parents.
This is a very good idea! My children are too young to send their own thank-yous so I thank the gift giver myself. I have been ennoyed tho by nieces/nephews that either never thanked us for gifts or took a very long time. I don't think it's real important how the gift giver be thanked, a note, an email, or phone call, it's just the idea of saying thank you that counts!
