When someone sends you a gift or present for your Birthday it is considered polite to reply with a note or thank you notes. If they have taken the time to find and choose you a gift before spending their own money on it then responding with a simple note is only fair.
It doesn’t have to be particularly long or verbose. Just something acknowledging the effort they have put in and thanking them for it.
But knowing exactly what to say is where problems may arise. Although the note only has to be short it can still be difficult getting the wording correct or finding the words to express the way you feel.
Some people are just not very good at putting their thoughts into words on paper, and if that is the case then the examples below should give you some good ideas of the sort of things to say. Alternatively if you find a thank you note in the many below that you feels fits precisely what you want to say then please use it as it is.
