Thank You Notes for Gift Cards

Here are some wording examples to help you write thank you notes for gift cards.

Gift cards may be the lazy man’s gift, but they are pretty great too.

A Few Ideas for Your Thank You Note

The main goal of this thank you note -- beyond showing how grateful you are -- is to make sure the giver doesn’t feel like a chump for giving you a gift card. The best way to achieve this?

Spend the card before you write your thank you note

If you’ve already spent the gift card on something, you’ll be able to describe the awesome thing you got. The recipient of your thank you note will feel joy and pride knowing they helped you buy the whole boxset of the Twilight series.

Sample Thank You Notes

Thank You For a Restaurant Gift Card

Dear Richard,

Thank you so much for the generous 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 the best time. I assure you I wouldn’t have gotten the prime rib if I was footing the whole bill... ;)

I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend an evening. So, from both of us, please accept our most hearty thanks.

Thank You For the Target Gift Card

Dear Grandma,

I just spent the Target gift card you gave me for Christmas, and I had so much fun looking around for something to buy! Thank you so, so much. I ended up getting a few new pairs of pants, which was really great because I needed new ones badly.

You are such an amazing Grandma. The best in the world! I really hope I get to see you again soon.

Thank You For the Amazon Gift Card

Dear James,

I can’t thank you enough for the gift card to Amazon that you gave me. What an unexpected gesture! I want you to know that I 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 you really needed. No re-gifting this year.

Thank You For the Starbucks Gift Card

Dear Uncle Bill,

Thanks for the gift card to Starbucks you gave me for graduation. Did my mom tell you about my caffeine addiction, or did you just intuit it? I’m sure I’m going to need all that extra caffeine when I get to 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
