Getting it right when you say Thank You is very important as you want the recipient to know how sincere and appreciative you are – here are some tips to help you do just that!

The person you’re thanking will appreciate a heartfelt thanks ‘written in your own hand and voice‘ card to a scripted thank you verse which they can guess was copied from the Internet. So my advice when reading the guidelines below is to use them as just that … a guide. Add your own voice, use your own words and embellish with the reason for your gratitude and what that person’s help, assistance, advice meant to you. It doesn’t have to be a wordy letter of thanks but a personal thank you is best.

If you’d like to include a Catholic themed religious thank you verse, I have some suggestions for those further down the page.

Greeting Card Templates – add photos and text

Another nice gesture is a personalized greeting card which features a photo, image and text that you’ve added yourself via a greeting card template. You can see samples of what can be achieved with that via Zazzle here. There are ready-made templates you just edit, or you can be really creative and start from a blank card template and create something very unique.

How To Write Thank you messages for cards

  • Start be selecting an appropriate themed thank you card. It can have a neutral design featuring plain script or it can have an illustration, pattern or design you believe is to their taste. You may find you choose a different type of thank you card based on their relationship to you. Are you thanking a colleague, employer, friend, family member, loved one, neighbor, clergy member, nurse, Doctor etc.? There are many themed thank you card which suit various niches, check out the selection here.
  • Inside the card address the recipient by name, or salutation. Ensure their name is spelled correctly.
  • Thank You Greeting Suggestion:

“I want to thank you for your wonderful (contribution, gift, support, help, guidance, service). It has been truly appreciated by me and (enter names here if there are others) and we wish you know how much it means to us.

Alternative tones of thanks

“I wish to express how pleased I am and grateful for ….”

” Thanks for the ……… I owe you one”

” You’re the best! In my wildest dreams I never expected this and I am so happy! Thank You!”

” Thank you from the bottom of my heart,  I couldn’t have done it with out you.”

“Thank you for your patience and support during what has been a very difficult time. It has been much appreciated and I’d like to gift you a (add gift item)… to show my appreciation.”

“Thank you for being YOU!”

” Best mum, dad, sister, brother (etc) in the world. Thank you for always being there when I need you and when I don’t! Love you to the moon and back ..”

” Thank you for the lovely gift, it has pride of place on the ….. where we can see and enjoy it often. You have great taste or you know I do ! wink

“You’ve been a great boss / mentor /teacher, spiritual guide, thank you for believing in me”

“Thank you for taking the time to teach me … I couldn’t have done it without you. I owe my recent success to you.”

“You are the light of my life, thank you”

Add a note to follow saying in what way the help, gift etc. has been of benefit. How did it help you. If it was a gift, how has it been used, where displayed etc. If money, how might you plan to spend it. If you’re thanking a nurse or Doctor, Clergy member, how did they make you feel better, support you the most etc.

  • Sign off with what is appropriate based on your relationship ie.

Warm Regards, With thanks, Forever Yours, Lots of Love, Love, See You Soon, Best Wishes etc.

  • Add your name, first or salutation with surname if the relationship isn’t a personal one.

Alternatives to traditional thank you messages

Thank you messages can be thoughtful, sentimental, funny depending on you and your relationship with the person you’re expressing gratitude to. Handmade cards are also warmly appreciated even by those you don’t know so well as they’re clearly heart felt.

There are some poem, verse writing companies you can contract to write extra special messages of thanks. These can be costly or you can recruit a talented friend to do the task for you. These work wonders for thanks given on occasions such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and thank you’s to God Parents etc.
