Questions and Answers

What are some ideas to present a book as a gift?

You can present a book as a gift in many ways, such as:

  • By wrapping the book in a fancy wrapper.
    Write a Letter of Presenting Gifts 94255.jpg
  • By presenting it in a simple way, like putting it in a simple paper bag.
    Write a Letter of Presenting Gifts 30001.jpg
  • By presenting the book the way it is.
    Write a Letter of Presenting Gifts 85863.jpg
  • By giving it with a simple note inside.
    Write a Letter of Presenting Gifts 23122.jpg

The most important part of presenting a gift is the inspiring message, whether you write this on the card, or inside the book.

Here is an effective outline for writing a simple yet inspiring message when presenting a gift to your loved one.

  • Tell him or her that you chose the book you're giving him or her because it is a wonderful book, and you're sure they'll love it too.
  • Tell him or her why you chose that book as a present. Tell a little something about the book, to get them excited to read it.
  • Tell him or her you hope the book will bring back happy memories, or perhaps bring new memories.
  • You can also write a little humor in your letter but do not leave out the true sentiment, which will make your letter more sincere.

You can just simply wrap it and attach a card explaining why you chose that book for the person you are giving it to. Books are more meaningful as gifts when there is a particular reason for choosing it, not just because you randomly plucked it from the shelf in the bookstore. It demonstrates the thoughtfulness behind the gift.

I am gifting some friends some currency.

They will be exchanging the currency at a local bank. I've heard they'll need to have it notarized. Do you have any suggestions?

No, they will not need a notarized letter in order to turn the money into a bank in exchange for currency. I myself have exchanged money from a foreign place (Japan) to a bank in the US without having to have anything notarized.

Hi I have written a small book. I want to write a letter to college teachers to recommend my book to students. How to write? Please help.

It is very important to give the teachers an idea what your book it about, and why it would be good for their student to read. Summarize the key points and provide them with a good outline. Also, you may want to list the key points their students can learn from. It will help if you know your audience, to be able to explain exactly how your book applies to them.

Can you help me write a letter to a famous person encouraging her to communicate?

I want to send a gift with a letter to a famous chef and introduce myself. Also, I'd like to encourage her to communicate with me.

Celebrities receive gifts from fans all the time. To make your gift personal and encourage interaction, explain how this person has enriched your knowledge of cooking, and how their expertise is greatly appreciated by you. Include a personal story of why you chose that gift for them. You also could start a dialogue with her by asking a few questions, that you hope will be answered. Leave your contact information at the bottom of the letter. Make sure to include your email and not just your address and phone number.

What do you say in a letter after receiving a gift from a will?

My husband's children don't know they are getting money from their dad's will since he passed. How can I put it nicely how much he loved and cared for them. They will all receive the same amount of money.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

This is a tricky situation but you can put it like this.

Dear Children,

Your father was a great man and loved all of you very much. Hence, he has equally divided his fortune among you all in his will. Let us all hope together that his soul rests in peace.

Love,

Mum

P.S - You can rephrase it as your needs require.

If the children are his, but not yours, you would phrase this letter differently. Enforce your husband's love for his kids. They may just assume you will inherit everything, which would be the reason you're writing the letter. Perhaps something like this:

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Dear (Name the kids)

I know this is a very difficult time for you. I'm sure you miss your dad as much as I do. Your father loved all of you dearly. I know it's no consolation, but your dad has left each of you money - as stipulated in his will.

Was this helpful? Yes | No

Sending you all love. Perhaps we can all get together to celebrate his life.

Much love,

(Your name)

A birthday gift for my step daughter?

I'm giving my step daughter a gift - her mother's wedding band made into a heart with birthstones to represent the family. I was wondering how to word this in a letter.

This is a very sentimental gift. Include a story of her mother, and who is represented by each birthstone. It would be great if you could include a picture of her mother wearing the wedding band. It would also be worth mentioning that with this gift, she will have her mother with her.

Bringing money from office stuff.

Hi Sir, I want to write a letter on behalf of my friend who's laptop was stolen a week ago, requesting that our office staff contribute some money for him to get a new laptop.

A letter of request should include why the money is needed and what the money would be used for. If there is a collection spot, make sure to include something like, "All donations are most welcome. For your convenience, there will be a donation can on the break room table. Do not add pressure people, since you are asking co-workers to contribute for a non-work, non-health related situation.

How do I start up an official letter informing a customer that he/she has been nominated as a good customer, and we, therefore, have a special offer for him/her?

I need to send a letter informing him/her that we have selected him/her for a giveaway.

You would use the phrasing for the letters above in this article and just switch the phrasing to "Because you are a valued customer you have been nominated to receive this special offer".

My company has launched a new product. It's a very elegant stand that holds signs - all kinds of interchangeable signs: Typhoon Warning, Yellow Rain, Black Rain, etc. I would like to give one of these stands to one of my clients as a gift, but I thought it might be better to send him an email first, out of respect.

I find it difficult to write a professional letter and get to the point. I don't know how to say it or put in words. I'm eager to meet the right person.

If you want to meet the person you are gifting, send an invitation to him/her to receive the gift. Express that you would love to show this person all the wonderful things this gift can do, and it would be best done in person.
