Writing a letter or note of best wishes is one of the tasks into which people often put the least effort. Perhaps most of the thank you notes and well-wisher cards that you receive are just bought and signed. Some may also be printed from a computer, or you may just receive one via email.

What do you do with these cards and notes? You pile them up without reading them and store them away. If you're a busy person, you just might not even take time to bother with the email containing well-wishes. Guilty? Perhaps everyone is. You most probably are used to sending good wishes to your close friends, family and close colleagues. However, sending good wishes is a custom that even business entrepreneurs recognize as one of the best practices in business. It brings about goodwill and opens business opportunities. There are entrepreneurs who are on the lookout for partners and are grateful for favors and business deals. As such, this should also be a practice not only of the common people, but also of the business entrepreneurs as well. It is one of the best ways to say thank you and wish people well for all the support and care you've received.

Reasons for Sending Good Wishes


There are many things that a person should be thankful for. Thanking the people who in one way or another have helped you is a gesture that many people forget. There are a couple of reasons for sending good wishes:

  1. 1
    Major success in life or business.

    This could be anything from closing a big deal to getting promoted at work. The recipient will definitely be in high spirits and will most likely appreciate anyone who would congratulate him or her on this achievement. However, a person who did not take time to write a special note of good wishes will be remembered, too. Perhaps you will be sending champagne or a bouquet of flowers. Make it more meaningful by attaching a note about how well he did during the difficult times prior to achieving his goal.

  2. 2
    Like any other achievements in life, graduating College or finally getting a master's degree is an accomplishment. Finally achieving this goal is one of the most important highlights in an individual's life. As such, attaching your gift with good wishes is a good thing. It is one way of showing support to the person. Add a personal touch by mentioning a particular time in the person's life when he or she was trying to overcome a stumbling block towards achieving his or her goal. It will make your gift and good wishes more meaningful. If the letter is about graduation, you can mention specific plans about education. You may be aware of your friend's plans to continue his or her education. Perhaps your friend is planning to take a break from his or her schooling adventures to get a full time job instead. In order to be personal and specific when writing this type of letter, it is important to mention what you know about the individual, and not to make assumptions. If you've mistakenly mentioned in your best wishes letter that you are pleased with his or her decision to continue his or her education. but he or she is in fact is going to get a job instead, the letter will not be appreciated. It will reveal the fact that you have not been an attentive friend.

    Getting Married.jpg
    Tying the knot is one of the most memorable events in one's lifetime. Finding your lifetime partner and marrying her is one of the many things people desire in life. As such, sending your good wishes will be much appreciated. Include a good story or parable of a husband and wife so that the couple can take time to savor opening your gift. This will also make them remember you and your gift because of the personalized message you attached your gift to.

    The confirmation that a baby will come soon is good news to expectant parents. This is especially true when they've been waiting for a long time for the baby to come. Your note of wishing them well will be much appreciated if you give it in time for a baby shower. Usually, an expectant mother will hold a baby shower a couple of months before the expected delivery. This is also the best time for you to give your gift, along with a note of good wishes.

    Birth of a child.
    Arrival of a Baby.jpg
    The joy of pregnancy is nothing compared to the arrival of a couple's bundle of joy. This moment is always shared with family and friends. You can seize this opportunity to wish a couple well with the arrival of their child. If you were able to share the couple's difficulties during the pregnancy period, this is the best time to savor that moment through your letter.

    Ilness or Hospitalization.jpg
    When a friend or a colleague gets ill, people often tend to send flowers or balloons and get well soon cards. Did you ever notice how ill people feel warm-hearted when reading hand-written short missives? This is partly because there is not much to do at the hospital. A person who is hospitalized is not required to do anything and should not be stressing himself. Aside from the TV, there is sometimes nothing much that a hospitalized person can do. As such, receiving well-thought and well-written get well soon cards are best to be given along with your flowers or fruits. Rest assured that this time, the individual has all the time in the world to read your letter, as it will be about all he can, do aside from sleeping, watching TV, taking his medications and waiting for his doctor.

    Yearly Events.
    Annual and Monthly Occasions.jpg
    This pertains to Father's Day, Mother's Day, Valentines' Day, birthdays, or any other occasion that marks a special day for everyone. Sending a combination of thank you and well wishes is something that children rarely do today. When you think that it's high time someone learns how you appreciate them, using letters of good wishes and thanks are the best means of expressing them. Some people get too emotional when talking about their feelings, while some others find it too mushy and they laugh at the person expressing it. One safe method is to express it through a hand-written letter.

How to write your good wishes letter

Before you start with your letter, keep a couple of things in mind, and format your letter so that the recipient will not get lost reading your letter.

  1. 1
    Make sure that your timing in sending the note of good wishes is appropriate.
    Letters are like jokes. It's difficult to feel appreciated when it is not delivered at the proper time.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  2. 2
    Start with a good greeting and the reason for your note or letter.
    In this part you can recall a particular event, which has brought about your being thankful. Sincerely enumerate what the person made you feel during the difficult times.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  3. 3
    Wish the recipient well.
    Whether it's his birthday, a wedding anniversary, a job promotion or simply a job well done, make sure that you make them feel that it is an important event in your life as well.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    End with an appropriate closing salutation.
    A letter should be short enough not to bore the reader, yet long enough to contain the real substance and reason for the note.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    It would be best to write the letter yourself, as it brings a more personal touch.
    By writing your letter, you are showing that you spend time and effort in making the note a special one that (despite the available technology) you opted to write it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Read your letter again before finally sending it to make sure that you did not miss anything.

Sample Letter

Dear Mrs. Collins:

At this time of year, many of us like to recall the events that are most memorable to us. This took me back to our picnic at the Basildon Estate when you were here last November.

In the future, I hope we'll have a chance to visit other places and enjoy fine food and stimulating conversation.

Have an enjoyable holiday season! You have earned it! We'll plan another get-together next year.

Sincerely yours,

[Your name]

Questions and Answers

How to write a letter to uncle for good wishes?

It really depends on the purpose for the letter, and the occasion. Another consideration is how close you are to your uncle. Whatever the occasion is, a personalized letter is always better. You may want to include how your uncle has influenced you in one way or another. If it is a good wish letter for an uncle getting married, you should also include his soon-to-be significant other in the wish.

You can not make someone love you. What you can do is show her how you feel by encouraging her daily and being there for her when she is distressed. Offer to help her in a class project or help her study for a class you already took. You need to establish a connection with her and your common interest is your school so use that.
