What do you say in a graduation thank you card?
The elements of a memorable graduation thank you message includes:
- Saying thank you
- Showing what the support means to you
- Having a personal touch
So how does that translate into your graduation thank you message? Let's break down the process with some example wording.
Step 0.5. Keep track of gifts.
Following this beforehand will make writing your graduation thank you notes so much easier. Keep a simple log of the person’s name, what they got you, and if they attended your graduation ceremony or party.
Step 1. Start with a thank you.
After you address the person in your opening, get into the thank you right away.
Thank you so much for your generous graduation gift!”
Step 2. Mention how the gift will be used.
Brownie points if you mention the specific gift. Of course, if it’s monetary, you don’t need to be so straightforward. How it will be used will suffice.
“I was trying to figure out how I could buy myself a car to get around, and this definitely helps me get closer to that goal.”
Step 3. Insert personalization.
Relate something back to your relationship with that person for a nice personal touch.
“Remember how I’d always call on you to drive me around? Well now I can finally start returning the favor!”
Step 4. Close with another thank you.
Mention their presence at your celebration if applicable.
“Thanks again for thinking of me and coming out to celebrate on my special day!
Step 5. Make sure everything looks pretty.
Knowing what to write in a graduation thank you card is only half of the puzzle. As good as your graduation thank you wording should be on the inside, you want the outside to show that same level of thought and care.
