A Few Ideas for Your Thank You Note
While the main goal for this thank-you note is to make sure the giver doesn’t feel like a chump for giving a gift card beyond showing how grateful you are, the best way to achieve this is to spend the card before you write your thank-you note.
If you write the thank-you after spending your gift card, you’ll be able to describe the awesome thing you got. the giver will surely feel proud knowing they helped you buy the whole boxset of the Mad Men Series.
Sample Thank You Notes
Thank You For a Restaurant Gift Card Dear Richard, Thank you so much for the lovely gift card you gave me for my birthday. You really didn't have to do that! Mary and I used it last night and we just had our best time. I assure you I wouldn't have gotten the prime rib if I was footing the whole bill... ;) I couldn't even imagine a better way to spend an evening than this. So, from both of us, please accept our most hearty thanks. Sincerely,
Thank You For the Target Gift Card Dear Grandma, I just spent the Target gift card you sent me this Christmas, and I had so much fun looking around for something to buy for myself! Thank you so much. I ended up getting a new pairs of pants, which was really great because I needed new ones so badly. You are such an awesome Grandma. The best in the world really! I hope I get to see you again soon. Warmly, Your Favorite Granddaughter
Thank You For the Amazon Gift Card Dear James, I can't thank you enough for the Amazon gift card you gave me last time. What an unexpected & surprisingly fun gesture! I want you to know that I've put it to good use. My new iPhone case arrived in the mail today! This iPhone is going to stick around a little longer than the last one... :) So, thank you so much... It's great to be able to buy something that I really needed. Gratefully, Lucy T.
Thank You For the Starbucks Gift Card Dear Uncle Bill, Thanks for the Starbucks gift card you gave me for graduation. Did my mom tell you about my caffeine addiction, or did you just guessed it? I'm sure I'm going to need all that extra caffeine when I get to my college. I'm so excited! Thanks again. This really will come in handy and save me a lot of money. I hope we'll get to see each other soon. Best Wishes, Laura Myers
