Sally, I really appreciate the Christmas gift you got me! They've been on my wish list since they first appeared. It took me a long time to build up enough money to purchase one. There are no words to describe your awesomeness. A big THANK YOU to you again! There is no one better than you. Hugs, Jennifer

Thanking a Close Family Member
Mom, I am so glad to have you as my mom! It's always you who knows what I want and what will make me happy. I was so excited when I saw my new iPhone. I remember being eager to get it out of the box. My phone and iPod will no longer be required to go everywhere. I will make sure that you get a lot more peace and quiet now by using my headphones! I love you, Derek

Christmas Thank You Note to a Spouse
Mike, I was speechless when I returned from my business trip for Christmas to find that the house had been thoroughly cleaned from top to bottom. Christmas wouldn't have been the same without that! When I woke up Christmas morning and saw you standing by my bedside with a beautiful diamond necklace, I was almost in tears. I am so glad you are in my life, and you are the most thoughtful husband. Your loving wife, Tina PS: The effort you put in didn't go to waste. ;)
As Tina tells Mike, she is very grateful for the pre-gift that threw her off the scent of her diamond necklace. He knows that she realizes he has gone above and beyond.
An extra PS at the end of the note adds a bit of excitement.
Thanking a Friend
Mark and Mary, Those special pretzels you send us every year are greatly appreciated. I can't get enough, and the package of pretzels that comes to our door right before Christmas is such a delight, even though you've been sending them for so long. When we get our box of pretzels every year we can feel like we are back home, at least for a little while. Your Friends, Erica and Tom
Thanking a Boss for a Christmas Bonus
Mr. Martin, I was pleasantly surprised by my Christmas bonus this year. Thank you for caring so much about your employees and for making our lives easier. There are few bosses like you. I hope that you enjoy this gift card to your favorite Mexican restaurant. Sincerely, Marsha
Whenever you receive a large gift from someone in authority, it is wise to send a personalized thank-you note. Sending them a small token of your appreciation, such as a gift card, along with that note is also an excellent way to show your appreciation.
Thanking a Christmas Party Host
