Ideas For What To Write On Thank You Cards

Good manners define every human being’s personality. They are about understanding the feelings of the other persons, treating them with kindness and respect and also show appreciation and gratitude. There are many ways to show appreciation and gratitude towards the people who help us and one of them is saying a simple ‘Thank You’. Saying ‘thank you’ is a sign of respect and also a good way of expressing that we care about that person.

As said in the following quote by anonymous, “The smallest thanks is always worth more than the effort it takes to give it”. In certain situations, there must be more to express the gratitude the person owes than the two-word phrase ‘Thank you’. It is very common for a few people struggling to find the right words that are suitable for the occasion both verbal and written. So, here are a few situations and sentences that you can use while writing the thank you notes.

1 – A simple gratitude for all situations

Along with the thank you phrase, there are a few things you can add. These sentences apply for all situations in general. Most situations include a person giving you a present, helping you with your studies or work, doing something special for you like giving you extra chocolate or bringing you lunch/dinner, or covering for you and even defending you from another friend or a person.

  • Thank you for being a wonderful person. You really are the best!
  • Your thoughtfulness is a gift, and I will always treasure it in my heart. Thanks for helping me today.
  • I’m touched beyond words. Thank you!

2 – Thank you notes for birthday presents

Often you will receive presents from your mother, father, sibling(s), relatives, friends, and well-wishers on your birthday. It is always good to be specific while sending a thank you card for such presents. Sometimes the presents are for babies and toddlers, and parents must write the thank you note on their behalf.
