More Graduation thank you card help…
Personalize each note: We don’t need cookie-cutter notes. Take the time to acknowledge the person who gave you a graduation gift.
Mention the Gift: Describe how happy you were to receive the gift, and tell them what you intend to do with it. People love to imagine their gifts in action. Especially the elderly.
Keep it Casual: It’s not necessary to be overly formal when thanking graduates. You’re writing to family and friends. You are loved by them. They mean the world to you. Keep it short, sweet, and a little tongue-in-cheek.
Now, onto the samples!
10 Graduation Thank You Note Samples
Dear Uncle Weiss, Your presence at my graduation ceremony was greatly appreciated! When I walked onto the stage, I was so happy to see you there. Your graduation gift of a lovely watch was also greatly appreciated! I am always called your favorite niece because you spoil me so much. Uncle, I love you too! I consider you to be my favorite uncle. (But don't tell Uncle James that I told you.) We look forward to seeing you next week for dinner. I would like to extend my regards to Aunt Jane as well! Your loving niece, Amelia
Dear Riley, I appreciate your generous graduation gift very much. We have discussed what college will be like for me, so I appreciate you realizing what a help some money will be. Having you be there when this chapter of my life ended meant a lot to me because you have been a close family friend for a long time. When I come home for breaks, I look forward to catching up with you. Wishing you a wonderful summer! Colin, sincerely
Dear Charlie, Seeing you at my graduation ceremony was an awesome moment for me. You not only made my day by attending, but also by gifting me such an amazing book. Hopefully I'll be able to complete it before my university classes resume in the spring. Otherwise, I have no idea how I will study. Thanks again, Robert
Mr. Wellington, For my graduation, I am so grateful to have my first watch from you. I've always wanted a mechanical watch, and I plan to wear it daily for years to come. While I wish you could attend the ceremony, I understand that some obligations cannot be avoided. Hopefully we'll have time to go camping once things settle down at the office- I'm thinking Canada this time around. I look forward to hearing from you soon! All the best, Chris
Dear Alex, I was really happy to see you at my graduation ceremony. There arenâ€™t many times where you can sit back and feel like youâ€™ve accomplished something. Iâ€™m so glad you were able to be there to help me celebrate this moment for me. I hope you and Julie can come to my university after I settle in there. With love, John.
Dear Grandpa, Thank you so much for paying $5,000 towards my college tuition. I know you always joked about how I was your favorite granddaughter, but I never suspected it was actually true! ;) Thanks for being the best Granddad of all time. It wouâ€™dnâ€™t have been the same without you at my graduation. Love, Sara
Dear Martha; Thank you for coming to my graduation ceremony at the college. It was such a lovely day to have all my friends and family there. The weather held out so we could have the ceremony outside rather than crowded in the school gym. That made me so happy. Thank you so much for the wonderful gift you gave me, it really wasn't necessary, but is much appreciated. I'm glad you could make it to the party and celebrate with the whole family. I look forward to seeing you soon! Tammy
Dear Aunt Jessie, Thanks a ton for the graduation money. It will help me immensely in college when I need a little extra spending cash. I promise I wonâ€™t spend it on beer like my dad said I would. I would also like to thank you for attending my graduation and coming to my reception. I can't wait to see you again at our next family reunion over the break. We'll have to beat the guys this time in our annual backyard football game. Take care, and I love you! Jessica
Dear Grandma, 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. I am so excited to go to college and I look forward to all the new experiences and friends I will make. Your email address is in my "Friends" list, so keep an eye out for updates. Thank you again for making my graduation so special. Love, Susan
Grandpa, thank you so much for paying my tuition. Without you, I never thought my dreams would come true. I couldn't have done this on my own. I don't know how I can ever thank you enough. You and Grandma are welcome to visit me at college! Nancy, I love you both
