Thank-You Etiquette

You receive a gift in a close setting (say, at your very small office or while seeing your in-laws). You thank the giver to their face and have a good chunk of face-to-face time with them before and after the gift giving.

Do you still send them a thank you note afterwards?

When I was little I was always harassed into sending notes in situations like these and I just realized the other day that I've never gotten a single note like this after being thoroughly thanked to my face. Do I just give gifts to rude people or were my parents trying to hone my awesone thank you note writing skills by making me write them when it wasn't necessary?
