What to Write in a Thank You Card

What to Write in a Thank You Card

Well, this question arises when someone wants to express his/her gratitude in a way that involves something more than the word "Thank you!" The answer to this question awaits you in the following.
Penlighten Staff
Those who give a sincere thought about writing thank you cards are among the ones who wish to express their gratitude in a special way; something that can make the other person realize that he was indeed helpful and that he is being deeply acknowledged for it. However, sometimes, it is easy to be at a loss of words; the time when we just can't come up with the right words. But, when we do, one rule that always must be kept in mind is the rule of KISS - keep it sweet and simple. Such notes do not have to be a flowery affair, and the words do not have to sound loud. All you need to do is to let the person know that you appreciate what he/she has done for you.

For Birthdays

Dear Granny,

Your thoughtful gift brought me so much warmth and love this birthday. Your hand-knitted sweater looks amazing on me. I took it to be something from a boutique until mom told me that you have actually made it. With this, I hope to have a comfortable and warm trip to Big Bear, this winter. Waiting for another lovely gift like this for my next birthday...

Lots of love,

Dear Bobby,

Never had so much fun in the past few Christmas parties like we had last night at your place. Great tasting food, soothing music, and no superlatives for the drinks you served; they were all amazing. And hey, your neighbors are some great party people.

Thanks for making this Christmas a memorable one...

I cannot think of any fancy words to thank you for your kind presence at the funeral and also, your prompt help in making the arrangements. Knowing that such good people like you will miss my mother made my burden a bit lighter.

I would have been in a lot of trouble if it wasn't for your continuous help in cooking for my kids, looking after jewels, taking the kids out, to name a few. Really, your thoughtful help and effort took off a lot of load from my stress and helped me recuperate sooner.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart...

For Money Gifts

Dear Helen,

You made this New Year more gleeful and fun for the kids. Tommy has already started going gaga over the game he bought, and Kelly is overwhelmed with the thought of what to buy.

It has always been a great feeling to see you and it is still. Wish you a very Happy New Year!

For Teachers

Dear Mrs. White,

Heard great things about you before I sent Gibson to school. And I would like to tell you that I have not been disappointed. Your rational and sensible approach towards studies and lovable way of teaching find great appreciation in Gibson's words when he speaks about his school.

Thank you for being such a great teacher...

Best wishes,


One vital point here is the importance of writing the words in cursive handwriting. It does add to your sincere expression. Just remember, writing in a thank you card is no rocket science; sincere thoughts and heartfelt gratitude are the main ingredients. If you have them in place, things become easier.
