Handwritten thank you cards have so much more meaning than a quick text message or social media DM (even though it might seem easier).

In this blog we’ll be giving you some thank you card message inspiration, from appreciation quotes to quick thank-yous.

Short, simple thank you messages

Sometimes all you need is a short (and sweet) message, especially if it’s a photo card – pictures do all the talking.

  • You’re the best.
  • Thank you so much for everything.
  • Your thoughtfulness is a gift I will always treasure.
  • Sometimes the simplest things mean the most.
  • You made my day.
  • All I can say is wow. (Except, of course, I’m grateful.)
  • My heart just keeps thanking you and thanking you.

Received a gift thank you messages

Getting a gift from a loved one is *the* best – give back the love with a quick thank you message.

  • Thank you for the gifts. You know me so well.
  • The gift you sent for my birthday is perfect. I can tell you spent a lot of time picking it out.
  • I was soooo happy when I opened my gift. You knew exactly what I wanted.
  • Thank you for the generous gift card. It’s much appreciated.
  • Just wanted to say a big thank you for the gift card. Do you know me or what?

Received help thank you messages

Moving house? Babysitting? No matter what they helped with, thank them with these kind messages.

  • This has been a challenging time, and I appreciate you so much.
  • You have no idea how much your help has meant.
  • There was nothing random about your acts of kindness. Thank you for all you have done.
  • I can never thank you enough. But this is a start.

Thank you messages for teachers

Sometimes teachers don’t get enough credit for all the hard work they do throughout the school year, use these thank you messages to let them know.

  • To the *best* teacher ever. Thank you for making a difference.
  • Thank you for being such a one-of-a-kind teacher.
  • …and the “Best Teacher Ever” is… Miss Robson. Thanks for everything.
  • A teacher is a person who surrounds her students with inspiration to learn again every day. Thank you, Mrs. Falsetta.

Thank you messages for weddings

Whether your wedding party was absolutely huge (everyone and their neighbors came) or just an intimate group, say thank you to each one for coming.

  • Thank you for celebrating this milestone with us.
  • We’re so happy to have you in our lives to celebrate our Big Day.
  • Thank you for being part of our joyous day.
  • We’re touched beyond words by your generous gift.
  • Thank you for being here on our journey.
