Thank You For Birthday Wishes

Dear Jane,

Thank you so much for the card and beautiful flowers you sent for my birthday. What a lovely surprise; you know how much I adore roses. Their scent is heavenly and they are gracing the entrance hall and receiving lots of compliments.

Thank you once again.



Dear Julia and Kerry,

Thank you so much for my birthday card and the exquisite crystal vase you gave me for my 50th birthday. I can't believe you also sent roses; I have been truly spoilt. I have had my eye on that particular vase for ages so what a wonderful surprise it was when I unwrapped my gift. 

The beautiful roses make a pretty picture in my lounge and their heady scent is breathtaking. Thank you both so much, you are too kind.

Love Joanne


Dear Aunt Joan,

Thank you for the generous gift for my birthday. You have really spoilt me!  I am going to put it towards the purchase of a new camera. I had a lovely birthday and celebrated with mum, dad and John at Casey's burger bar.  On Saturday I am out with friends so it's one big party!

Thanks again for your generosity and I hope to see you soon.



Dear Grandma,

I just wanted to write and say thank you, thank you, thank you for the money you gave me for my birthday. You have really spoilt me this time as it is far too much! The money is secure in my bank account for the time being as I am going to put it towards my Australia trip next year.

Did Mum tell you that we are coming to visit at the end of the month? I am really looking forward to seeing you after so long. I hope you are ready for a swim in the ocean!! I certainly am.

Until then, lots of love



Thank You For The Birthday Gift


Thank you all so much for the beautiful bracelet you gave me for my 40th birthday. It matches my pearl pendant perfectly and I shall enjoy wearing it when Pete takes me out to dinner next week.

Thank you all once again for your generosity.

Kind regards,

Dear Marcie and Tom,

Just a little note to say thank you for spending Julia's 1st birthday with us. 

The gifts you gave her are so much appreciated.  We love the teddy bear and she does too.  It now accompanies her to bed every night.  The teething ring is a great idea too; I think it really helps. You are so talented in finding such adorable and useful gifts.

Lots of hugs,

Michelle and Peter

See you soon,

For Hosting a Birthday Party


I had so much fun the other night. Thank you so much for hosting my party. It wouldn't have been the same anywhere else.

I hope I didn't make too much of a fool of myself playing Trivial Pursuit. Obviously I need to brush up on my trivia!

Thanks again Tim. The food was to die for and the drinks were plentiful. Thanks for the great memories.

Thank you very much for the gift card to my favorite coffee shop. You know me and how I love coffee so this card won’t last long. I’ll make sure to think of you as I am enjoying my white chocolate mocha!

Thanks again! You’re a true friend.

To Mom and Dad

Mom & Dad,

You are the best parents a girl could ever ask for. I can not believe that you gave me a car to use at college. I was preparing to walk everywhere but – big shocker!! You got me a car??

I couldn’t have been more surprised and I still don’t see how you kept it a secret.

I love you guys,

In this note, Mary shows her parents that she truly is thankful for the big gift that they gave her. She also complements their slyness by admitting her surprise. A big birthday present such as a car definitely requires a thank you note.

To an Aunt

Aunt Patty,

Thank you for the nice pair of boots that you sent for my birthday. I will be sure to keep warm this winter. Send the rest of the family my love, and give little Buddy a belly rub for me.

Your Niece,

Many times, distant relatives have no idea what you want so they will buy something almost everyone would use. Sending them a thank you note may be difficult, but just putting something in and getting it sent off is important to keep the relationship open.

From One Friend to Another


Hey girl. Thanks for the sweet card and the certificate to go to karate classes. I wasn’t serious about giving the boss a beat down but this really made me laugh. Who knows! I may actually be good at karate.


Marsha and Jenn obviously have an inside joke going on about their boss. Jenn thought up a great way to brighten up Marsha’s day. Making sure that you thank them will keep the working relationship in good standing.

For Breakfast in Bed


I am so lucky to have you in my life. You are the only one that truly knows exactly what I want. Delivering breakfast in bed was the greatest birthday surprise, and when you added my favorite hot tea it set the day off right. You’ve set the bar high. Your birthday is less than a month away. I’ve got to get to work to beat that!

I love you so much,

This is a sweet note that says thank you and also allows the husband to know that he did a good job. And really, every husband needs this sort of positive reinforcement.

Birthday Gift from a Boss

Mr. Mosley,

Thank you for the card and gift card that I found on my desk. It was a very welcome surprise. I have never had the chance to eat at this restaurant, so I am excited to see how it will be. You are a great boss to work for and I appreciate your thoughtfulness.


Janice makes sure that she does not over personalize the note that is meant for her boss, but makes certain he sees that she is appreciative. Since her boss does not know her very well, he most likely bought a gift card to a restaurant that he likes.

Whereas a not to a Friend can be casual and fun, when addressing someone of authority, its wise to keep things a little more formal.

Choose the thanks to fit the occasion.



Handwritten, Email, or Phone Call?

It’s always correct to send handwritten thank-you’s, and people always appreciate them.  Handwritten notes are warmer and more personal than a phone call or email, and only second best to thanking someone in person.  The general rule is: If you open a gift in the presence of the giver, then your verbal thanks are sufficient.  For example, when you receive a hostess gift, or a holiday/birthday gift from a good friend or relative and you open it and express your sincere thanks personally, then a follow-up thank-you is optional. If the giver wasn’t present, then a phone call is fine.  Email is great when you just need to say a simple thanks quickly.  Here’s a rundown of when a note is expected:

  • Wedding or baby shower gifts.  After giving shower gifts, the majority of people consider it rude if they don’t receive a written note of thanks even if you’ve given thanks in person.
  • Wedding gifts.  Each wedding gift should be acknowledged with a written note within three months of receipt of the gift, even when you’ve given thanks in person.
  • Congratulatory gifts or cards.  Send a note to anyone who sends a present or card with a personally written message to acknowledge an accomplishment, such as a graduation or promotion.
  • Gifts received when sick.  Notes should be written when the patient feels well enough, or a relative or close friend can write notes on his or her behalf.
  • Sympathy notes or gifts.  Send a written thank-you to anyone who sent a personal note, flowers, or a donation.  It’s fine for a close friend or relative to write notes on the recipient’s behalf.

Different Gifts, Different Thank-You Notes

Different kinds of gifts and occasions merit some tweaking to the standard thank-you note.

    • Gifts of money.  In your note, let the giver know how you’ll use a money gift—to furnish your apartment or add to your savings. It’s up to you whether you mention the amount, but doing so let’s the giver know the funds arrived intact.
    • Holiday and birthday gifts.  Write thank-you notes for holiday and birthday gifts as soon as possible, preferably within two or three days.  A good standard is to acknowledge Christmas or Chanukah gifts before New Year’s Day.
    • Other gifts.  Thank-you notes are not always necessary for presents that have been given in person at a housewarming, going away party, or similar occasion.  If a sincere thank-you was expressed in person when the gift was received, that’s sufficient.
    • Thank-you gifts.  Gifts sent as a “thank you for…” require a note of appreciation in return.  It’s necessary to let the sender know that the present arrived and is appreciated.
  • Acknowledgment cards.  Printed acknowledgment cards expressing appreciation can be used in three instances:
    • After the death of a prominent person when scores of sympathy notes, gifts of flowers, or donations to charities are received. They can also be used as a placeholder acknowledgement until a personal note of thanks can be written.
    • When a public official is elected and receives a landslide of congratulatory messages.
    • When a bride has such a large wedding that she and the groom simply cannot write personal thank-you notes immediately.
  • A newspaper “Card of Thanks.”  In some small towns and rural areas, it is not only permissible but expected that recipients of a large number of gifts or contributions—after a birthday, anniversary, retirement party, funeral, or even political campaign—put a public “thank you” in the newspaper.  The notice is typically headed “Card of Thanks” and is followed by a brief message.
