For a Gift
Birthday, holiday and just because
Here are some questions you could try to answer when writing a thank-you for a birthday, holiday or just-because gift: What was the gift? What do you like about it? Why was it a good choice for you? What do you plan to do with it? How did you feel when you opened it? How did it make you feel about the giver? Below are some message examples that answer one or several of those questions.
- “Thank you for the bling hanger for my marathon medals. You know me so well!”
- “I love the milk-glass vase. I’ll think of you every time I see it on my table.”
- “Thank you for the fun and funky purse. I don’t know where you find such unique things!”
- “The table runner you sent for my birthday is perfect! I can tell you spent a lot of time picking it out, and it makes me smile to think about how thoughtful you are.”
- “I was so thrilled when I opened the new hiking boots. You knew exactly what I wanted.”
- “Thank you so much for the new alarm clock. I’d been needing one, and the one you chose is perfect to use with my phone!”
- “Bless your big and generous heart!”
Graduation, wedding, baby and other life events
The challenging thing about these life-event thank-you notes is that you likely have several of them to write. It’s fine to develop a general formula for what you’ll write, but anytime the task starts to become burdensome, put down your pen and come back to it later. You want to sound appreciative and enthusiastic, and you’re more likely to come across that way if you write five thank-you cards a day over 10 days, rather than 50 all at once.
- “Wow! We are so touched by your generous wedding gift. The place settings will be used and enjoyed often—and we’ll think of you every time.”
- “Thank you for adding to the joy of our wedding with your warm wishes and thoughtful gift. We love the candlesticks and how they look on our hall table.”
- “Thank you for the adorable fire engine sleeper and bib for Ben. You put a smile in our hearts. Can’t wait to send you a picture of him wearing it!”
- “From the bottom of my heart, thank you for organizing the group gift of the car seat and stroller for my baby shower. You shouldn’t have. (But it’s so nice you did!)”
- “Thank you for the e-reader! I’m already using it and loving it. I really appreciate you thinking of me on my graduation.”
- “I so appreciate your thoughtful graduation gift to me. The watch is beautiful, and it almost makes me look like a real grown-up when I wear it Thank you so much. You’re the best!”
House or pet sitting, yard work or housework, help during a busy or difficult time, above-and-beyond assistance with a project at work…anytime someone steps in and makes your life a little easier, call it out with a thank-you note.

Workplace Thank-You Phrases
Bosses and employees love to be thanked, especially when they do something extra.
- I really appreciate the effort you have contributed to your team’s project.
- I sincerely appreciate your flexibility and willingness to help.
- I wanted to express my personal gratitude for the effort and extra time you have contributed.

How you end your message or note is important, too. A professional closing like “Sincerely,” “Best regards,” or “With appreciation” will add a nice finishing touch to your communication.
The Benefits of Sending a Thank-You Note
When you’re job searching, you’ll have many different opportunities to say thank you to those who help you, and to prospective employers.
For example, when you write a thank-you note after an interview, the gesture shows appreciation for the employer’s interest, time, and attention, reiterates your enthusiasm and interest in the job opening, and reminds the employer about your qualifications and experience.
Thank-you notes are a good opportunity to bring up something you may have forgotten to mention during the interview, or to follow up with additional information that the employer has requested.
Usually, an interviewer will explain next steps in the process and when to expect to hear back from the company. If they did not discuss this, or you have yet to hear from them, use your thank-you letter as an occasion to follow up. Doing so in a thank-you note can express your gratitude and show your unwavering interest in the position while simultaneously checking in on the process.
Review Thank-You Message Examples
Thank-you notes can be handwritten, typed, or emailed, depending on preference and circumstance. Thanking someone for acting as a reference for you, or for letting you shadow them at their job, doesn’t require the swift delivery that an interview thank-you would (where the hiring process is going to move along quickly,
requiring you to send your thanks immediately after your interview).
Timing is almost as important as what you say. An email will make an immediate impression. That’s key if you’re in contention for a job, especially at a medium-sized to large company.
Say Thank You in English — Formal Situations
Some daily situations – at work and in our personal lives – require more formal language. And this is often true in writing.
For example, if you’re expressing thankfulness or gratitude in a speech at a wedding, a formal reception or networking event, or in a lecture, it would be appropriate to choose more formal language.
Or if you’re writing thank you notes to friends and family members; if you’re sending an email to say thank you to a new client; or writing to another company, again, you’ll want to use these more formal expressions.
I’m so grateful for… / I’m so thankful for… / Many thanks for…

I truly appreciate… / Thank you ever so much for… / It’s so kind of you to…

Sometimes we have very difficult times in our lives. Maybe a loved one becomes ill. Someone passes away. Or perhaps you lose a job.
Tragedies happen. These can be terribly stressful times. If you are writing someone to thank them to help you, these expressions are most appropriate.
- “I’m eternally grateful to you for providing dinners to my family while I was in the hospital. I felt comforted knowing they were well-feed.”
- “Words cannot express how grateful I am for your help after my mom passed away. I was devastated and you helped me get through each day. ”
Say Thank You in English — Professional Situations
If you are writing an official business email or business letter, then it’s best to use professional, formal expressions to show your thanks or appreciation.

Thank you for your assistance with… / Thank you for your attention to this matter
- “Thank you for your assistance with/attention to this matter. We look forward to hearing from you shortly.”
