Coworkers. They can help you, give you gifts, or take you to lunch.
If you are working a full-time job away from home, you may be spending more time with your coworkers than your family. Take a few moments to let them know they are appreciated with a thank you note.
There are general examples below for when they help you or do something nice. Then there are sections for wedding and baby gifts that come from coworkers.
If you are thanking one coworker I recommend a handwritten note. Most people love to display them on their desks! If you are thanking a group of co-workers, I recommend sending one email to the entire group.
Another way to thank them is to let the boss know what they did for you!
If you are leaving your job, check out the examples to thank your coworkers here.
