Money, Gift Card Thank Yous

Thank You Notes for Money / Gift Cards - Tips

  Money gifts are generally treated the same as any other, though it is generally the case that you do not mention the exact amount.  Also, if you have a particular item you intend to buy with the money, you should include that in your note.  For example:  "I have been craving a massage but would never treat myself to such an extravagance…thanks to your gift, I have an appointment for next week!".

  As with all thank you notes, get them as quickly as possible – hopefully within a couple of weeks, at the most.   The samples below are for money thank yous for various occasions.  Some of the other Tips and Samples sections have money thank you wording samples as well.

Thank You Notes for Money / Gift Cards – Wording Samples

“Dear Uncle Steve,

  Thank you so much for the generous check you sent. Your timing couldn't have been better!  I've been wanting to get a new briefcase for ages.  The old one has definitely seen better days.

  Now I can get that really cool one I've been salivating over at Dillard's. I truly appreciate your thinking of me. You're the best!



“Dear/”Dearest [Name],

  How generous of you to send me a check for my [occasion of celebration]. Although I missed your being there, I know that your [love/kind thoughts] and well wishes were with me.

  Please know that I truly appreciate your gift and I plan to use it to [briefly state how you will use the funds].

  Let's get together soon to celebrate. Thanks, again for your very thoughtful gift.

With warmest regards/Sincerely yours/With all my love,”


“Dear Aunt Joan,

  Thank you for the generous gift for my birthday. You have really spoiled me! I am going to put it towards the purchase of a new camera.

  Thanks again for your generosity.



“Dear Aunt Judy,

  Thank you so much for the generous check for my graduation. As you know, I am touring Thailand in the summer so am going to put it towards my trip.

  Thank you for taking part in my special day; I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.



“Dear Grandpa,

  Thank you for the generous check you sent for my birthday. I have had my eye on a new camera, and with the money you sent I can finally buy it.

  Thanks again, Grandpa, and I look forward to seeing you next week at Mom and Dad's, where I will be taking many pictures.



“Dear Mr. Smith,

  Thank you very much for the generous graduation check. It was kind of you to think of me and to be there on my graduation day.

  I have deposited it into my account to be used toward my Australia trip, so it will be put to good use!

  Thank you once again.



“Dear Aunt Jane,

  We would just like to say a huge thank you for your most generous wedding gift.  We are so excited as now we can buy the cutlery we have had our eyes on.  You must come over so you can test it out!

  We had a fantastic wedding day and we hope you enjoyed yourself too.

  Thanks again and we hope to see you soon.



“Dear Peter,

  Thanks again for the very generous gifts for the kids.  Tommy already bought a game he has been wanting for a while and Luke is having fun deciding what to get.

  It was great seeing you as always. Hope you have a very happy New Year!



“Dear Aunt Frieda and Uncle Ted,

  Thank you so much for the generous graduation gift. It will be well-used on my trip to Europe this summer. I was going to bring my old backpack but now I'll be able to get a new one with all the bells and whistles. I can't wait to pick it out.

  It was so thoughtful of you to remember me on my special day. Thanks again!



“Dear Mr. Jones,

  Thank you so much for the generous gift. It will certainly help with my college bills, which is a big relief. I may even treat Gina and myself to dinner this weekend. Thank you from us both!



“Dear Mr. and Mrs. Sanborn,

  We so appreciate your housewarming gift. There are dozens of ways we could put it to good use but I think we'll be getting a new couch. It will be the first thing you see when you walk in. Thank you so much for helping make our home more comfortable and stylish!

Warm regards,”


“Dear [Godparents' names],

  All I can say is, I don't know what to say!  Except of course, "danke" for the very generous gift.  I can think of a million fun ways to spend it, but I think I will finally get the end table I've had my eye on but could never bring myself to buy.

  You were so thoughtful to get me a gift -- especially such a generous one. Please know how much I appreciate it!

With love,”


“Dear Friends,

  I can't begin to express what your gift means to me and my family. The money is most definitely helpful and will go to extremely good use, there's no doubt about that. But even more than the monetary value, I so greatly appreciate the thought behind the gift. Illness is a burden but your actions have really lightened the load. For that especially, I thank you.

  This time has been difficult for us, but knowing we have the support of people like you certainly helps. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
