Writing thank you notes for cash can be tricky, so today we’re gonna look at how to write a thank you note for money and gift cards.
You should always send a thank you note when people give you gifts, so here’s how to write a thank you note for money and gift cards in 7 easy steps.
1. Use their name. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Including the gifter’s name in your note makes it personal, and that’s what you want.
2. Call it a “generous gift.” Don’t say, “Thanks for the money!” It sounds much better to say, “Thank you so much for your generous gift!” If it’s a gift card, you can say generous gift, or call it a gift card.
3. Tell them what you used/plan to use it for … Did you buy new fuzzy slippers with your gift? Or the last gravy bowl on your wedding registry? Tell them.
4. … And why you love it. Explain that your tile floors can get cold and you’ve been wanting fuzzy slippers to keep your feet warm. Explain that the gravy boat will help you make your house a home and will get great use when you entertain friends — and the person who gave you the money!
5. Wrap it up by saying you appreciate them or can’t wait to see them again. Tell them you’re thankful they celebrate with you every year on your birthday, or that they were able to be with you on your wedding day.
6. Thanks again! Never hurts.
7. Sign it. Use “love” or “sincerely” or whatever you’re most comfortable with, or you could even combine 6 and 7 and use “thanks again” as your signoff.
