Full Answer

Some people pair their custom message with a printed message of thanks. If so, the common messages of thanks they use may be simple, such as ?you?re the best,? ?you?re a blessing to me? or ?I?m touched beyond words.?

If the message of thanks is for a gift, common messages of thanks usually begin by thanking them for the specific gift and following that with a custom message. One example is, "?I was so happy when I opened the new boots. You knew exactly what I wanted.? Another example is ?I love the vase. I think of you every time I see it on the table.?

Common messages for help received include ?You have no idea how much your help means? and ?You went above and beyond, and I'm touched and grateful.?

Messages of thanks for hospitality are similar to receiving gifts in that the writer references the specific hospitality and then thanks the person. An example is ?Thank you for the unforgettable meal. You?re incredible.?

Thanking someone for being a reference or after an interview is similar. The message of thanks should reference their specific act and then thank them for their time. An example is, "Thank you so much for inviting me to interview for the position. I appreciate you taking the time to help me learn about this opportunity, and I hope we speak again soon."
