Он стыдился своего трусливого поведения и сомневался, хватит ли у него смелости вернуться обратно в зал движущихся дорог, к разбегавшейся оттуда по миру сети туннелей.

Считая Элвина по меньшей мере нетерпеливым, а может быть и вовсе безрассудным авантюристом, он все же не верил всерьез, что тот может нарваться на опасность. Рано или поздно он возвратится. Хедрон был уверен в. Ну, почти уверен: сомнений было как раз столько, чтобы сохранять осторожность.

You sent the Graduation announcements and now the mailbox is brimming with cards of congratulations and GIFTS!  You've worked hard to earn your degree and people are generous and kind. Be sure to thank them for their kindness with a handwritten note! 

We've put together a collection of graduation thank you card messages that can help you get started, but add in your own personality! Try to write the note as quickly as possible after receiving the gift so they know it was received. 

•As I graduate, a new journey begins I thank you for your kindness, thoughtfulness and prayers.

•During my graduation ceremony it was so wonderful to look up into the crowd and see you sitting there smiling and supporting me. That was such an important day for me, and I’m so glad you were there to share it. Thank you also for the handsome picture frame. I will select a great family picture taken on graduation day, and take it to my new job so it can grace the desk in my office.

•Graduation reminds me of everyone who has touched my life. The gift of your presence and acknowledgement is truly appreciated.

•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 along 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.

•I am so happy that you were able to share my graduating day with me. Either by being there or remembering with your generosity. Thank you so much for being part of my graduation celebration.

•I can’t believe I’m graduating. I’m so excited and wanted to stop and tell you how much I appreciate your help over the years. You were patient, inspirational, and actually made things fun. Thank you so much for everything. I won’t forget it.

•I just received your lovely gift in the mail today. Thank you so much for thinking of me and remembering my upcoming graduation. I wish I had more than just four guest tickets to my graduation ceremony so that I could invite you and all of the other family and friends that are so special to me. Thank you again for your thoughtful present.

•I just wanted to thank you both again for coming to my graduation ceremony. It was great to have such a loud cheering section. I know I heard you for sure. Thank you also of course for the generous gift. I can certainly use that money right now. I truly appreciate it. You are too kind.

•I want you to know how much I appreciate all of the time and energy you put into helping me throughout my college career. I consider you to be one of my most important mentors. It was a wonderful feeling to know that I could always count on your encouragement, support, and guidance. You give great advice. Thank you so much for attending my graduation ceremony, and being such an incredible influence in my life.

•I was really happy to see you at my graduation ceremony. There aren’t many times where you can sit back and feel like you’ve accomplished something. I’m so glad you were able to be there to help me celebrate this moment for me.

•I was so happy that you could attend my graduation party. And thank you so much for your thoughtful gift. I will use the corkboard to create a fun photo collage of my family and high school friends. When I hang it on the wall of my college dorm it will remind me of you and all of those special people back home who love and support me.

•I would like to thank my family, friends and school faculty for the wonderful memories you all have given me.
It was a really awesome moment for me to see you there an my graduation ceremony. Not only was it awesome that you were able to attend, but you made my day by gifting me such a great book.

•It was wonderful of you to share my graduation celebration with me. Thank you for your good thoughts, your generous gift and for being there. It means the world to me that you care.

The weather held out so we could have the ceremony outside rather than crowded in the school gym. That made me so happy. I also want to thank you so much for the wonderful gift you gave me, it really wasn’t necessary, but is well appreciated.

•Thank you for coming to my graduation party. It was so nice to see you both. I appreciate the money and plan to put it towards decorations for my dorm room. I’m going to have fun shopping.

•Thank You for joining me on my special graduation day. Your generosity and thoughtfulness were very much appreciated.

•Thank you for remembering my graduation. Your card was so sweet, and I certainly am thankful for the check you sent with it. I will be buying many things for my new dorm room, and a laptop for school work, so your gift is much appreciated and will be put to good use.

•Thank you so much for attending my graduation ceremony. I know what a long trip it was for you, and I want you to know how much I appreciate your driving down to be there on my special day. And thank you so much for the lovely engraved pen set. Once I land my first job, I will take the pens to work with me and use them at my desk.

•Thank you so much for giving me my first watch for my graduation. I have always wanted a mechanical watch, and I plan to wear it daily for years to come.

•Thank you so much for paying my tuition. I never thought my dreams could com true without you. This is something I would have never been able to do on my own. I don’t know how I can ever thank you.

•Thank you so much for taking the time to come to my graduation ceremony. Words can’t express how happy I was to see you sitting there when I walked onto the stage.

•Thank you so much for the desk lamp you gave me. I really appreciate this useful and practical gift. There are just so many things that I will need for my freshman dorm, and now I can cross the desk lamp off my wish list. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness.

•Thank you so much for the generous graduation gift. I know we’ve talked about what college will be like for me, so I appreciate you realizing what a help a bit of cash will be. You’ve been a close family friend for a long time, so it meant a lot to me that you could be there when this chapter of my life finished. I’m looking forward to catching up with you when I come home for breaks. Hope you have a great summer.

•Thank you so much for the graduating gift. I really am glad you could make it to my graduation party. That was the real gift. Looking forward to seeing you again.

I was delighted to get some time with you at my party and hope we can meet again soon. Once again, many thanks for the graduation gift. Best Wishes.

•You have truly enriched my life by your kindness and generosity. Thank you so much for sharing my Graduation day.

•You nearly shocked me when I opened my gift. I couldn’t believe what you’d given me. You knocked my socks off. I’m so grateful to have a friend like you.

•Your generosity is absolutely incredible! Thank you so much for the gift of money. It will really come in handy as I shop for a few nice outfits that I can wear to interviews. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness.

Tips

Personalize each note: Cookie cutter notes won't do here. If someone was nice enough to give you a graduation gift, take the time to address them personally.

Mention the Gift: If the person to whom you're writing got you something nice, describe how happy you were to receive it, and tell them what you plan on doing with the gift. People love imagining their gifts in action. Especially old people.

Keep it Casual: There is no need to be overly formal with your graduation thank you notes. You're writing to your friends and family. They love you. You love them. Keep it short, sweet, and tongue in cheek.

Now, onto the samples!

Sign Up and Start Sending

Illustration by Anna Emilia

Last weekend I found myself collecting beautiful thank you cards at Greenwich Letterpress in Manhattan. I needed a few specific thank you cards, but I also wanted to collect some blank cards I could use for general thank yous and the sorts of cards I try to send as often as I can to remind friends and family what they mean to me. While I was sorting through them this morning, it got me thinking about the importance and significance of saying THANK YOU. These days thank yous are sent in the form of texts, emails, social media messages and the rare written note or phone call. While traditional etiquette would demand something written or done in person (which is of course, lovely), I think modern times call for a modern set of guidelines. Much like the discussion we had about communicating after the loss of a loved one, I think the way you communicate to someone has a lot to do with the circumstance at hand. So today I thought it would be nice to brush up on Thank You tips before we dive into a season full of events, occasions and surprises that will most likely be the perfect excuse to flex your gratitude muscles. As always, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the topic and any lessons/tips you’ve learned or appreciated in your experience. xo, grace


*I’ve also included 10 cute Thank You cards to get your started if you want to say ‘thank you’ in written form. The sources continue below, along with additional cards. If you prefer to DIY your own, here are three ideas: Flower dyed thank yous, Stitched cardboard thank yous and Embroidered thank yous

Thank you cards above, clockwise from top left: Flower card $19.95 for set of 8, Neon pink card $18.50 for 8, Chalkboard thank you $12.50 for 10, Faux leather striped cards $22.50 for 8, Chevron gold foil cards $24.95 for 6

The Big Picture: I think, at its core, giving thanks for something you’ve received, whether it’s an object, an experience or something intangible like forgiveness or support, is something that just needs to be done, period. The form, timing and details are rarely as important as the simple act of saying thank you. I’ve found I most often get tripped up on trying to make things perfect, when I should just stick to the simple “Thank You” and get the message out. So when in doubt, a simple thank you in any form is the best thing you can do to show your appreciation. My notes below are about finding creative, timely or most effective ways to say thanks, but the bottom line is this: Just say thank you. The person receiving the thanks will just be happy to hear it, the mode and message are rarely as important as the simple act of acknowledging someone’s kindness.

Tips to Remember:

1. Timing: I think the most important thing about saying thank you is doing it in a timely manner. Of course a thank you at any time is better than none at all, but I find I’m more likely to give thanks if I do it quickly and succinctly. No matter the size of the gift/support, a simple thank you sent within a few days of the event or gift you’ve received is always best. The one exception seems to be weddings, in which case it’s generally accepted that if you send the thank yous within a few months of the wedding date, you’re ok. But I think for everyday thank yous, a few days later (not counting mail delivery, of course) is ideal. It lets someone know you took the time to sit down and acknowledge their kindness and that their efforts weren’t forgotten right away.

2. Message: I think a lot of the time, people get hung up on WHAT to say in a thank you and end up not sending one. But honestly, something simple is always best. Yes, it’s lovely to get something long and details and meaningful, but a simple thank you that mentions the thing you’re thankful for is always enough. For example, if someone gave you a bouquet of flowers:

Dear Carol,

Thank you so much for the beautiful bouquet of roses. They were so thoughtful and look gorgeous on our dining room table. We hope to see you again soon!

Love,
Grace

Or if someone gives gave you some support when you most needed it:

Dear Henry,

Thank you so much for your help last week. It meant so much to have your support during this tough time.

Best,
Grace

You don’t need to pour your heart out if the words are thoughtful and to the point. People will appreciate that you took the moment to appreciate their efforts, period.

3. Type of Message: Here’s the rub– people often feel that a BIG gift demands a BIG thank you. I don’t agree. I think it’s more important to simply say thank you in a timely manner than to make a big showy display of thanks. That said, I think there are some things to consider, depending on the gift type and the timing.

Text messages: I think a text message is a nice, informal way to thank someone for something slightly less specific or more about a general thank you for overall support. For example:

Hi Jenny- Thanks so much for having me over for dinner. It was great to catch up over pizza and relax. See you next week, Grace.

or

Hi Jenny- I was just thinking about you and wanted to say thanks for always being such a great friend. I’m so lucky to have you in my life. xo, Grace

Emails: I think emails are similar to text messages, but are a great place to go into a bit more detail. If you want to call out the specifics of a gift or event, this is a nice way to do that. It’s also a nice way to say thank you for a slightly younger generation that is more used to using email for everything than say, your grandparents. Though if your grandparents are using email on a regular basis you might want to send them a virtual high-five for being so connected and awesome. I think it’s good to note that emails are a nice way to say thank you to someone you don’t know well enough to ask for an address or contact info. For example, if you love an article you read in your local paper, writing them an email to say thank you or ‘good job’ might make more sense than emailing them to get an address and THEN sending a note.

Hand-written notes: I think of these as the most formal way to say thank you. Not because writing is necessarily formal, but it feels like the most traditional way to be appreciative and acknowledge something. Notes are my go-to for financial gifts, holiday or birthday gifts and anything related to work and family. Though they clearly work for anyone in your life, I think notes tend to imply you know someone well enough to have their address and say thank you. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • If your hand-writing isn’t legible (so many of us suffer from this thanks to years of typing over hand-writing), perhaps consider a different method of thank you.
  • If the gift was meant for multiple people, it’s lovely to write the note from several people and have them all sign it. Coming from one person can often seem like they are the only ones who remembered to say thank you.
  • Consider the recipient: If you’re thanking your new in-laws and only have a sarcastic or funny card better suited for close friends left over, try using a blank card instead.
  • Make sure you spell everyone’s names correctly
  • Include the entire family in the thank you if it’s a gift from everyone. Even if you know the gift shopping was done by say, your Dad, if the gift was from your entire family on the card, thank everyone.

4. Extras to Include (Ways to Bump Your Thank You Up A Notch): I love getting a thank you that feels personalized, decorated or like it has a little something special. Here are ways to bump up your thank you a bit:

  • Decorate the envelope or package with hand-drawings, stamps or appropriate details for the recipient. We use everything from washi tape and neon packing tape to old magazine clippings and fabrics to decorate thank yous at the office.
  • Include a picture of the gift being used. If someone sent your new puppy a sweater, including a photo of the item in use is always a crowd-pleaser.
  • If a thank you note isn’t enough, consider sending flowers, a baked good or an appropriate extra gift. But be sure to note the pitfalls of gift-giving below if you’re sending someone another gift to follow their gift.

5. Things to Remember and Avoid:

  • Spell-check. Make sure you spell everyone’s name correctly.
  • Rudeness: You’d think it goes without saying, but sometimes people can use thank yous as a way to be passive aggressive about not liking a gift. If you don’t like it, leave that thought to yourself- notes are about thanking the gesture, not the specifics. (Unless it’s an offensive gift, etc.) If someone sent you a green sweater and you’d prefer pink, this is not the time to say “Thanks so much for the sweater. I haven’t worn green since I was little, but thanks anyway”. I’ve seen that done before, so it’s worth nothing that that’s not the best way to truly thank someone.
  • Don’t OVER thank: If someone treats you to coffee, sending them a few dozen roses to say thank you might be overkill. And it can potentially make them feel uncomfortable or feel like they now need to thank you and start the vicious cycle of “Thank you”, “No, thank YOU” that can happen. Keep the level of the thank you near the level of kindness you received. It’s about making the recipient feel appreciated, but not like they now owe you something in return.
  • Thank you gifts should be appropriate and not about promoting. I’ve found that if someone is a maker or has done something (like written a book or a magazine, etc.) they often send out their leftover stock as a thank you. Not that receiving someone’s handmade work isn’t nice, but if what you produce has nothing to do with them or isn’t appropriate for them, perhaps think of just sending a note or something more neutral like flowers, baked goods, or a product that means something to them (or that you’ve heard them mention that they like). Someone once sent a friend of mine a baby onesie they make and sell as a thank you, even though she didn’t have children. When it came up later on, she told the friend, “Well, I figured you’d know someone you could give it to.” Thank you gifts should be something the intended recipient can enjoy.

The bottom line is this: Saying thank you in any form is better than saying nothing at all. While the world won’t end if you DON’T say thank you, the best way to keep and maintain friendships and good work relationships is to acknowledge the kindness someone has shown you. xo, grace
