How to Write a Thank You Letter
These are the steps to take to write a perfect thank you messages:
Acknowledge what you are thankful for. For example, "Thanks for taking the time to help me fix my car."
Name something specific about why you are grateful. For example, "My car is super important to use for my commute."
Compliment the person who helped you or gave you something. For example, "You weren't sure that you'd be able to fix it, but you were willing to give it a shot. You are a positive force of nature!"
Let the person know how you feel. For example, "I have been telling everyone how awesome it is that you were able to fix it. I feel lucky to have a friend like you."
Use humor if possible. For example, "Someone asked me for your number to see if you could help them, but I gave her the wrong phone number because I don't want to share you."
Keep in mind that a thank you note needs to fit the gift or the action and the person you want to thank. Sometimes a less formal note is better, but not always. If you are writing to a good friend, you have a lot more room for variation than a business or interview thank you note.
