Free Thank You Letter Samples for Better Thank You Notes

Welcome to my free thank you letter samples page!

For your convenience, I've posted a number of thank you note examples that can be used to express gratitude for gifts and social invitations.

Most of the thank you notes you'll see on this page are slanted for personal use.

So if you need a quick note for a friend or family member, one of these could do the trick. And did I mention that they're free?

Any of these thank you notes can be personalized by substituting a phrase or two about the particular gift YOU received or the engagement you attended, etc.

And voila! You're done.

If you're looking for notes with a more formal tone--for employers, co-workers or clients, check out our business thank you notes page.

And for condolence notes, please see our sympathy thank you notes page.

Thanks for the Gift

Dear Allison:

Thanks for remembering my birthday. You're a good friend. I just love the silk blouse. It's gorgeous, and the color is perfect! Every time I wear it, I'll think of you.

Thanks so much for the lovely gift. I look forward to seeing you soon.



Dear Uncle Steve:

Thank you so much for the generous check you sent. Your timing couldn't have been better! I've been needing to get a new briefcase for ages it seems. The old one has definitely seen better days.

Now I can get that really cool one I've been salivating over at Dillard's. I truly appreciate your thinking of me. You're the best!



A thoughtful gift that accompanies a well-written thank you note will communicate your thanks even more deeply to the recipient.

And what could be simpler to give than one of our gourmet chocolate baskets full of rich and delicious treats? You won't go wrong with a gift like this!

Dear Shannon:

The beautiful silver picture frame you bought for me looks lovely in our living room. What a charming antique! I've placed a favorite photo of my parents in it. It looks absolutely stunning.

Thank you so much for your very thoughtful gift. I'll always treasure it.



Thanks for Inviting Me

Dear Lisa:

I just wanted to thank you for the delicious meal and interesting conversation at your lovely home last evening. The beef tenderloin was excellent, and Martin still hasn't stopped raving over that yummy double chocolate cake you made.

As always, we enjoyed being with the two of you. Let's do it again soon, okay? Next time, I'll wear the chef's hat.

Sincerely yours,



Thanks for having us over to your backyard barbecue this past weekend. You and Tina surely outdid yourselves.

The ribs were smoked to near perfection, and those steaks were absolutely delicious. Jeannie joked that she would rather do an extra mile every day this week on the treadmill than miss out on one bite of that delicious meal.

And the fireworks display was an exciting treat for all of us. The kids were still going on about it the next day.

Thanks again for inviting us. We all had a great time.

Warmest regards,
