Examples of Graduation Thank-Yous
Ideas for crafting graduation thank-you cards should steer you away from the pre-inscribed cards that are for sale at the grocery store. Instead, head for the note paper section or opt for blank cards with attractive cover designs. Next, personalize the message of the cards in keeping with the gift received.
“Thank you so much for your generous gift! The $___ is sure to come in handy. I intend to use it for ______ (travel, college tuition, household odds and ends…). It means a lot to me that you encouraged me over the years and the financial support at graduation was a wonderful surprise!"
“Thank you so much for sharing words of wisdom with me. Over the years, you have had a profound impact on my life and I am eager to read what ____ wrote. Since you value his writings so much, I know that I am sure to appreciate them as well."
Gifts You May Not Have Liked
“Thank you for remembering me on my graduation day! It means a lot to me that you not only wished me well on that special day but also sent __________ to encourage me. You are very thoughtful and I am very grateful."
A Personal Visit
In times that money is tight, some friends or family members may not be able to offer monetary gifts or any presents at all. They may spend available funds just to travel to your graduation ceremony or offer you a homemade coupon for something they can provide. Writing cards in appreciation of graduation gifts such as these is a must!
“Thank you for not only sending a card but coming in person to encourage me! It meant so much to me to see you on my special day. Thank you also for the coupon to _____. I will make good use of it sooner than you think! This was one of the most personal and thoughtful gifts I have received, and I am deeply grateful to you for it."
