And alright, some gifts aren’t exactly what you wanted. But it’s the thought that counts! And giving a gift is a selfless and generous thing to do. So it’s only right to thank the person giving the gift. Acknowledging their generosity and letting them know you appreciate it is both polite and a good way for them to feel pleased with their actions.

Follow the below steps and see some of the examples listed to get a good idea of how to express your gratitude for gifts. Or alternatively you can copy any of the messages you find fit your situation.

The process for writing a thank you message or note can be broken down to a few steps. Following these will make it much simpler if you’ve decided to compose your own.

  1. Start by thanking them for the gift – “thank you so much the lovely gift”
  2. Let them know why you liked it so much or what it means to you – “I loved it! I’ve been wanting a new phone/book/luggage etc for so long”
  3. Maybe include an example of how you’ve used the gift – “I haven’t been able to put it down since I got it. What a page turner!”
