Christmas Gift
Thank You Notes Wording

Who sends Christmas gift thank you notes?

What a silly question. You do of course!  Show your appreciation with handwritten Christmas thank you notes for all those thoughtful Christmas gifts or Christmas hospitality.

If you live abroad and have received gifts in anticipation of Christmas, you might want to send thank you notes as soon as you receive them.  Another idea is to say thank you in your Christmas card and then follow up with a thank you note after the holiday period.

Anyway I hope you had a lovely Christmas and without any further ado, onto your thank you notes.

If you haven't sent any Christmas gift thank you notes yet, it's time to get cracking.

Don't forget friends or family who slaved over a hot stove to serve you that scrumptious Christmas dinner or if you were invited to an amazing Christmas or New Year's Eve party?

Below you will find sample thank messages for you to use. Saves you racking your brains after the Christmas and New Year celebrations. Copy my thank you wording or use it as inspiration to compose your own.

Charity Donation Instead of Christmas Gifts

Dear Mum and Dad,

I was so surprised and pleased to receive the confirmation of your donation to my chosen Christmas charity.  You know  the protection of organgutans is a subject dear to my heart. I have everything, health, luck and happiness and a wonderful family.

This year, instead of Christmas gifts, I couldn't think of anything more worthy than to donate to a charity that I support.

That is a whopping sum you have donated and I know the charity will be more than thankful this Christmas. So a huge grateful thank you from me.

I can't wait to see you both for Christmas lunch. 

Lots of love,


Dear Aunt Jessie,

Anyway, take care and thanks again. 

Lots of love,

Just to let you know your parcel for the boys arrived yesterday. I have hidden it away until Christmas! It is so kind of you to think of them and so I'll say thank you for now until the boys thank you personally for their gifts.

I hope you have a lovely Christmas and New Year.

Thanks so much for hosting Christmas lunch at your house this year. The turkey was amazing; the best we've had in a long time! We felt truly spoilt and had the most fantastic day and would like to say a big thank you for all the effort you put in.

Christmas party thank you note

If you are invited to someone's house or personal Christmas party, then show your appreciation with a thank you note. That person has taken the time to invite you to something that was special to them, so it is only good manners to say thank you.

Dear Joanne and Peter,

Just a little note to say thanks for inviting us to your house the other evening. You put a lot of effort into making the party a success and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Once we get settled in you must come over to us for dinner.

Have a wonderful Christmas and see you soon.

Warmest wishes,
