Even for someone who writes several thank you cards per week, it can be hard to come up with the right words to express gratitude. When that happens, I find that using a little starter message can get me unstuck.
Here are a few thank you messages that you can use to customize and get inspired from:
SAMPLE THANK YOU NOTE 1:
It means so much that you _(got/gave me)_ _(the gift)_! I can’t wait to _(explain how you’ll use it)_, and I know I will _(feel … /accomplish …)_ when I do. Thank you so much for the great gift!
SAMPLE THANK YOU NOTE 2:
Wow, you really _(get me/were so generous)_ ! The _(gift)_ you gave me was beyond perfect. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and am so excited to _(use the gift)_.
SAMPLE THANK YOU NOTE 3:
Thank you for making my _(holiday/birthday)_ so special this year! I really appreciate the _(adorable/cool)_ _(gift)_ you gave me, and look forward to _(using it)_. You’re such a great _(friend/mom)_!
