As simple as the act may seem, many people struggle over how to write a thank you message for birthday greetings.

Thank you message for birthday greetings from Loved Ones

A birthday greeting for a close loved one such as a girlfriend or boyfriend is often important to word carefully, particularly in the early stages of a relationship. A greeting card can often be one of the first opportunities that a person has to express in writing how he or she feels about the other person. In addition to what we have previously mentioned concerning why the recipient is special to you, you must also consider the degree to which you are comfortable expressing your own feelings with that person. It will be up to you to consider the degree of intimacy you will express in your greeting.

Here are some wordings or samples:

Hello my precious [name],

I really thank you for remembering this very special day. I may be miles away from you, but you still found time to call me, greet me over Facebook, send me a gift and a greeting card, and blow me a kiss. You’re very sweet. It really made me miss you more. I did celebrate my birthday with a few friends, but I know it would be very much different with you.

See you in a few days. I love you!

My dearest [name],

I really had a blast yesterday. Thanks for preparing making my special day even more special. I appreciate the time and effort that you spent preparing for this day. I honestly did not expect anything much. A sweet dinner was all in my mind — but the gifts that you gave, the places that we’ve visited, and the words that you’ve said are way past my imaginations. Until now, I’m still wishing that yesterday shouldn’t have ended. I know that we’ll be having more days like this in the future. Thank you and I love you so much!

With much love,

[Your name]


Thank you message for birthday greetings from Family

Similarly, saying thank you to a family need not require much complexity. This depends on how deep your relationship is with the person that you want to thank. In some cases, a simple ‘thanks’ can do the trick, but stronger relationship requires much more than that.

Here are some examples that you may want to consider:

Hey Brother!

We haven’t seen you for almost a year and I hope that you’re doing well. I’ve got your greetings this morning and am surprised to see that you’re the first one to greet me! You really are my big brother!

I actually remembered my 7th birthday when you were also the first one to announce my big day back home – prompting everyone to greet me just the same. Too bad I won’t be receiving the same number of gifts I have back then.

Hope to you can come back home soon. We’ll be having a dinner tonight. We’ll call you.

Take care!

[Your name]

Dearest Mom and Dad,

Thanks for remembering my big day! Your text message woke me up. I also wasn’t expecting any gift from you to be honest. I thought gifts are just for kids J, but thanks for sending me the one that I’ve been wanting for years. More importantly, thanks for being there always.

I love you mama and papa.

Thank you message for birthday greetings from Friends

A birthday greeting written for a friend would invite very similar considerations. How long have you known the friend, and what is most special to you about them? Many cards simply wish the recipient a happy day, but mentioning what is special to you about your friend reminds them why they are friends with you and provides them with a sense of validation.

Here are some wordings or samples:

My beloved friend,

I just your greeting card and it’s so sweet of you to send one. Thanks for remembering this special day. I may not spend it with you and our other friends now, but I know we’ll be having one celebration soon.

Thanks again [name]. Take care always!

[Your name]


Hello friends!

I think I have the longest list of birthday greetings in Facebook. A total of 500 greetings! Thanks for remembering this special day. This really made my day.

Thanks again everyone!

Thank you message for birthday greetings from Colleagues

If you are writing a greeting card for someone who you know through work, then you can mention things that refer to your working relationship. You can write them a warm message wishing them a wonderful day, and let them know that their colleague appreciates them. Think about what makes them significant, and mention it. Do they have an interesting personality, or a good sense of humor? As well as strengthening your personal relationships, this will have the added benefit of appearing both professional and considerate in your workplace. Warm thoughts or best wishes are an example of how to end such a formal greeting.

Here are some wordings or samples:

Dear [name],

I got your greetings over the weekend. I guess you now know why I filed for a vacation leave for two days. Don’t worry, I’ll be bringing you some goods once I report back in the office.

Thanks for the greeting!

[Your name]

However you choose to say it, a well written, thoughtful message in a card can be a powerful tool in helping to cement the bonds of any relationship. In the workplace, it can tell others that you are professional as well as considerate, and with a little practice and forethought anyone can learn how to write a thank you message for birthday greetings.
