When someone goes out of their way to show you kindness, you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. That act of kindness might be in the form of a generous gift to you or your family, help when you’re going through a tough time, or an uplifting word when you’re down. That warm and fuzzy feeling — gratitude — is good for the soul. Even better? Expressing your gratitude in the form of a handwritten letter. If you’d like to show your appreciation, but don’t have the words, we’re here to help. Below, we’re sharing sample thank you card messages for every occasion.

Whatever the event — new baby, wedding, birthday, housewarming — we’ve got some #inspo to get you going. We’ll be your go-to resource the next time you decide to write a thank you note to express your gratitude to a friend or family member.

Let’s get started.

How to Write a Thank You Card

We’re going to begin with a quick primer on how to write a thank you card. A thank you card can be a full-page letter or it can be as short as a sentence or two. It’s important to note that a thank you card doesn’t have to be an actual card. A thank you card can be as simple as a text, email, or even a phone call where you express your gratitude verbally. Though we’re sharing plenty of example thank you card messages, the intent behind the message matters most. So, whatever you do, speak from the heart.
