There are exceptional benefits to sending a thank you card. Thank you notes can be utilized is so many different ways, holding profound importance in both personal and professional scenarios. Determining the situations that call for a thank you card requires a grateful awareness for all the relationships in your life; what they mean to you, what they do for you, and how they help you grow. But what do you say beyond thank you when sending a note or card? How do you display gratitude that is personally representative of your character? And is there any way to actually strengthen the bond between you and you and your recipient into a healthier, more mutually-beneficial, and assuredly long-term relationship?
Perhaps the most obvious time to send thank you cards is when receiving a gift. Birthdays, weddings, holidays, baby showers, religious milestones in the life of a child like a christening, first communion, Bat mitzvah, or quinceanera – if someone put forth the time, money, and effort to send a gift – you must send a thank you card.
If it’s around the holidays you can always include something at the end of your thank you message to call out the season like Happy Holidays, Season’s Greetings, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy New Year, and so on.
People send professional gifts too. A company may send another company a gift basket in a b2b relationship. Clients may send gifts to an organization or vice versa. The rule of thumb is, if you receive a gift, send a thank you card, but ensure that you include a personalized message to make it meaningful.
One of the best ways to extend a heartfelt thank you even further is to mention what your recipient sent and how you enjoy it wearing it, using it, eating it, reading it, etc. Here are some suggestions:
Sometimes it’s nice to have your child send the thank you card if the gift was meant for them. Or you can send a thank you card together and include a message like:
For wedding gifts, you and your partner can send an adoring message to your guests thanking them for attending and their thoughtful gifts. Include messages like:
When you receive a gift in a professional setting, like at your company birthday party or baby shower, you may want to include a thank you message like:
If you are a business receiving a giftfrom another company you may want to include a thank you message.
If a client sends a gift, make sure to send a thank you card right away to maintain and grow the relationship. You can include your company logo on the thank you card too, company pictures, a discount or promotion, and a gift as well. Thank you card ideas may include:
If you received a monetary gift, whether for a charitable event, a birthday or holiday, or as a nice reward for achieving some type of goal at your company, a thank you card is also required. You can also call a monetary offering a gift. These thank your card messages are all appropriate:
For the right relationship, and if you are close, you can say something like this:
Thank you cards can be sent for just showing up. If you are glad someone made it to your party or event, send them a thank you card to show just how much you appreciate them. Sometimes the best gift someone can bring is just themselves. Here are some thank you messages you may want to include in your card:
Alternatively, you can thank someone for hosting a party. Or for letting you stay at their home while you were visiting from out of town. An afternoon spent with friends, family, your boss, or some great coworkers at a barbeque can often warrant a thank you card. If you stay at an Airbnb or someone’s vacation home you should also leave a thank you note, expressing what you enjoyed about the place and even a couple of things you did on your trip. Here are some great messages to include in your thank you card:
Did someone water your plants while you were out of town? Did you ask someone to pet-sit? Did a friend or family member take care of you while you were sick – did they perform chores around your house? Did the neighborhood kids elect to cut your lawn or take out your trash? Did someone offer a helping hand during a difficult time? Did an employee go well-beyond their necessary duties – pitching in – staying late – to complete a tough project? When someone offers or provides assistance, especially when they don’t have to, it’s nice to send a thank you card. Here are some messages you could include:
When you are referring to something thoughtful someone has done for two or more people – thanks for thinking of us is appropriate. You can include this message in your thank you card on behalf of your business, team, your friends, or your family. If you are living with roommates and someone sent a housewarming gift – send a thank you card – the same can be said of any household, no matter who resides there. Some people even include their pets on the thank you card. This is of course even more appropriate when someone sends a gift to your pet. If someone does something nice for your children and they are very young – a thank you card from all of you is a nice gesture. Here are some thank you messages you can include:
All of these can be personalized to your specific recipient. Mention how much you enjoyed the gift if they sent one. If the recipient was kind to you in some way, mention how the act of kindness touched your heart. If a customer regularly shops with your business, you may want to send a thank you card with some type of discount or reward. If another business or vendor has done something special for your company, send a thanks for thinking of us card.
Another thanks for thinking of us card to send is thanks for thinking of us during our time of sorrow. This can also be singular, as in thanks for thinking of me during my time of sorrow. If someone attends the funeral of a loved one, sends a sympathy card, offers kind words, or purchases some type of gift or flower arrangement for the service, a thank you for your sympathy card is appropriate. Here are some suggested messages:
Sending thank you cards and delivering physical thank you notes to employees can help to motivate your team, build stronger bonds, and offers a small reward for their continued service. A thank you note to employees shows that you appreciate them and value their efforts, considering them an integral part of your business’s success. Giving an employee a thank you card is a simple gesture – but it goes a long way. Here are some messages you can include in your employee thank you cards:
Businesses should use professional thank you cards to establish, maintain, and cultivate relationships with their customers. Include a thank you for your order card when shipping a customer your goods, send a thank you card for their continued business, and opt to send thank you for your referral cards when customers recommend you to a friend or family member. Customers are sure to appreciate the gesture, and they will show their gratitude with loyalty. Here are some things you can say in a thank you card to customers:
It’s a good idea to send a thank you note or thank you card after an interview. An important job interview will surely benefit from a well-timed thank you card. The hiring manager and staff will appreciate the class and care you show when sending a physical thank you card rather than an email or ecard – it could be the additional effort needed to land the job. If you are rated against another candidate with the same qualifications, but you sent a thank you card whereas they did not, many companies would sway their decision in your favor. When sending a thank you card to a hiring manager here are some messages you can include.
After any type of business meeting, it is a good idea to send a thank you card. Here are a few suggestions on what to write inside your thank you card:
Lastly, you will need to close out your thank you card with a simple sign-off or message. Here are some suggested thank you card closings:

As 2018 is coming to a close, the team at ACE wanted to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported us. It’s been an amazing year full of achievements, awards and expanding our amazing team of devoted volunteers and staff. We honestly could not do any of it without any of you and we are so grateful for all of the support, awareness and work that has been put in.
We are very lucky to have so many people to thank this year. On behalf of ACE and all of the young people we work with, a special thank you to our awesome team for making this one of the best years ACE has ever had. You make the future of ACE exciting and inspiring. Thank you to Darren, Hans and Cherelle for running ACE and making this all possible!
Thank you to our dedicated young people for turning up to our sessions and using music to positive influence their lives. Without you, there would be no ACE. We can’t wait to work with you again in the New Year and see what the future has in store for you all.
Another special thank you goes out to our key partners, supporters and funders, including:
…and the many, many others who have contributed. With your help, the future for ACE is looking incredibly bright, and we can’t wait to tell you all about what we get up to and continue working with you. We are grateful for all your support.
Thanks to a generous donation from RUN, we even got to give the kids what they wanted for Christmas; new microphones! Being able to give our young people the equipment that they’ve asked for was amazing. They’ve absolutely loved having them to use in all of our sessions.
Thank you again to everyone for all your support. Together, we are really making a difference. See you next year!
There are exceptional benefits to sending a thank you card, but like Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, Happy New Year, and so on. The entire team at (name of company) thanks you.
The countdown to Christmas is well and truly on! This makes now the perfect time to think back to when you were an employee. What made you go that extra mile for your employer? What got you motivated to put in that extra little bit of effort, even when you were tired? From our experience, it’s those small things that really matter when it comes to your best performers.
Any successful business owner understands that people are at the heart of any thriving company. Even with the rise of technology, without people injecting passion into a business, technology useless on its own. We’ve worked with a number of clients across numerous sectors and we’ve seen firsthand how those who treat their staff like family, get better results.
Unfortunately, a lot of business owners mistakenly believe that the only way to reward staff is with financial incentives. You may be surprised to hear that in our experience, a simple ‘thank you’ and the acknowledgement of a job well done, has far more power than a small pay increase.
Being a good leader means doing what you need to do in order to motivate your team. As Christmas is the season of giving, it’s very important to ensure you thank your team for their efforts in 2016, while shifting their vision to bigger and better things next year. The good news is that you don’t have to break the bank to show your team that they’re valued and appreciated.
Here are 5 simple ways to say thanks to your team:
Nobody enjoys working for The Grinch. So often, we’ve seen how decorating the office or planning special celebration days has the power to boost team morale. This is even more important if you happen to oversee a call centre or any other role where your team is hearing the word ‘no’ quite a bit throughout the day. By decorating your office, you’ll get your team interacting and bonding with each other. It’s all about getting into the spirit of things and having some fun. Allow your team members to be as creative as they’d like to be (within reason of course).
Unfortunately, too many businesses organise office parties that are sure to please the organiser or the boss, but no one else. Your business’ Christmas party is all about your team – thanking them for their efforts and enabling them to spend some time together socially, outside of the pressure of work commitments. The best businesses boast teams who work together, support one another and are friends. We always say that a good way to approach organising a successful Christmas party is to ask your team what they’d like to do. And of course, we shouldn’t have to mention this but if people can’t make it to the party for whatever reason, don’t exhibit your displeasure with them. At the end of the day, they’re well within their rights to decline the offer to attend.
Providing you have the budget, rewarding your team at Christmas time with a gift card is a great way to say thank you. There are plenty of options out there but the great thing about a gift card is that its versatile and allows your staff to choose their own gift. Be sure to select a gift card your team will see as a treat – avoid being too specific with a certain store or you’re sure to encounter push back. For example, it wouldn’t be wise to purchase a Sephora gift card for your team as it’s not an ideal gift for male employees.
As we mentioned earlier, don’t underestimate the power of those two little words: thank you. On the last working day for 2016, most offices will enjoy a team lunch or dinner – why not say a heartfelt thank you to your employees before they head off on their break? We’re all guilty of being busy and at times, we probably all take our team for granted. Make a point of showing your staff that you notice their efforts when they’ve worked overtime on a certain project. Doing so will make a world of difference!
Depending on what industry you’re in, December and January might make for quieter periods. During this time, why not give any staff members who consistently work over time or who’ve achieved great things, some time off? Even an afternoon off can be just the boost a tired staff member needs after a year of hard work. We’ve already mentioned this a couple of times but it’s not always about money. Allowing your team to spend bonus time with their friends and family will go a long way.
At the end of the day, a happy team creates a more productive workplace. We know what it’s like to be an ambitious business owner trying to steer the ship in the right direction: it can be incredibly stressful. That said, it’s always important to remember that your team are people first.
