Addressing boyfriend's grandmother?

Addressing boyfriend's grandmother? Topic: How to write a thank you note for gift cards
June 20, 2019 / By Deniece
Question: I have met my boyfriend's paternal grandmother twice--once when we began dating 2 1/2 years ago and again just before this Christmas. She sent me a gift "from Grandma Jane." When writing her a thank you note, I know the envelope should be address Mrs. X, but on the inside of the card, should I say "Dear Mrs. X" or "Dear Grandma Jane"? I'm sure it's a matter of preference, but I'm just curious what the consensus is. :o)

. Since she already addressed you as "Grandma Jane," then clearly that's how she thinks of herself in relation to you. If this had not occurred, then you would have been safest to err on the side of formality and address her as Mrs. X. It's a nice thing, though, that she has accepted you as part of the family. Call her Grandma Jane and I'm sure she'll be happy! The fact that you're sending her a thank you note shows what a high-quality person you are, and I'm sure she recognizes this. Good for you! .

Similar thing happened to me. My bank said wouldn't cash a check over a year old. Brought it to the bank of the person who wrote it and they cashed it no problem. My guess is because they can see the account and know there is money there to pay it. I think they charged me 50 cents to cash it because I didn't have an account there. In your situation, they could also see the checking numbering means it has to be a current check.

If she wrote a gift from "Grandma Jane" then by all means write "Dear Grandma Jane". Plus saying Grandma Jane makes it sound more personal than Mrs. X. It makes sense this way.

The inside of the card should say "Dear Grandma Jane". Even though you've only met her twice, she must feel comfortable being called that if she marked that on her gift to you.

Dear Grandma Jane is a sign that you two have a comfortable relationship and that being slightly less formal is comfortable for the both of you. Smart to ask though.

normally i would say that the first time it's best to say Mrs. whatever, and maybe even the second time until mrs. whatever says, "oh no honey please call me jane, or grandma jane." but if she signed her card grandma jane then sounds like she's giving you the go ahead to call her that. so dear grandma jane, would be perfectly fine in this case.
