Express your gratitude with these thank you messages and ideas from If you need a little help getting beyond, “Thanks so much,” you're in to your specific thank-you situation, we hope it adds to the feel-good Here are some questions you could try to answer when writing a thank-you for a birthday.

So, you wake up on the morning of your birthday to multiple texts and Facebook notifications, all with birthday wishes for you. When you have a birthday, it is proper to always say thank you for birthday wishes. You want to tell everyone how much you appreciate these sentiments, but you’re not exactly sure how to write thank you messages for birthday wishes.

If you are thanking someone specifically for their birthday wishes, and not for a specific gift, you can send out an email, card, or post a Facebook status, to all of the people that wished you happy birthday. You can also respond individually to their messages if they message you individually.

A good rule of thumb is to respond on the same platform that people sent you wishes on. For example, if people wish you happy birthday on Facebook, it is appropriate to post a status thanking all of your friends for the wishes. If people text you directly, it would make sense to respond individually over text.

Birthday Thank You Card Wording

Thanking someone for birthday wishes is a lot easier said than done. There are certain things that you should be sure to include when thanking someone for either a gift or for their good wishes.

  1. Say thank you from the beginning.
  2. If you are given a gift, you should mention that.
  3. If you are not given a gift and they just wished you happy birthday, say thank you for the wishes.
  4. Tell them how it impacts you. For example “this wish made my day” or “it made me feel so loved”.
  5. If you are writing the card sign your name.

Something to also keep in mind is that if you are sending a letter, hand write the thank you. Not only does it make it seem more personal, but it also shows how much you really appreciate the wishes.

How Long Should Your Message Be?

Sometimes people feel the need to give a long thank you when receiving birthday wishes. However, it is best to keep thank you messages short and sweet. Keep them simple, especially if the messages is going to be a status on Facebook or a text to someone. If you are thanking someone for a gift, the message may be a little longer. If not, keep it short and to the point.

When Should You Send Thank You Notes?

There is no exact time that you should send thank you notes by. However, it is common etiquette to send them as soon as possible. Try not to wait too long from when you received the wish. While receiving a thank you late is better than not ever receiving one, you should still aim to send them in a reasonable amount of time. With technology, it is easy to quickly thank a large amount of people. If you are given a gift, try to send out thank you notes within a week of receiving the gift.

While there are some instances where you would be on the fence about sending a thank you, it is normally expected to send a thank you for birthday wishes. If you see someone in person and they wish you happy birthday, it would make sense to thank them in person and not have to contact them again about it later.

Is It Okay to Text Not Send a Thank You?

Normally for gifts, it is expected that you send a card. However, for wishes, it is okay to send a text. If you want to send a card to people that wish you happy birthday, that is also totally acceptable! A physical thank you note is special and it will be appreciated no matter what. You can also use a template if you need further help with a physical note.

It's your birthday! It's great to see that your friends care about you, but what's an appropriate way to respond? In person, just say "Thank you!" If the well-wishes are sent over social media or physical mail, the etiquette can be a little different, but it's not difficult to learn.

Steps

1

On Social Media

  1. 1

    Post one thank you message. If you use social media frequently, you might get birthday wishes from acquaintances, old friends, and people you don't even remember. Even your friends are probably not waiting anxiously to receive a personalized response. One message to your wall thanking everyone for the birthday wishes is common practice, and unlikely to offend anyone.[1] Here are some example responses:
    • Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes! I'm having a great time!
    • One man. One birthday. So many great birthday messages. :)
    • IT'S MY BIRTHDAY SO I GET TO USE CAPS LOCK. Thank you for the kind thoughts everyone!
    • Check out the examples section for more ideas.
  2. 2

    Post a picture instead (optional). If you want to thank people in a more visible way, take a photo of your smiling face in a party hat, a birthday cake, or another birthday symbol. Post it along with a comment thanking everyone for their birthday wishes. This shows that you put a little effort into making your thanks special, but is still fairly simple to do.

  3. 3

    Reply to messages that go the extra distance. If someone posts a long, heartfelt birthday wish over social media, reply to it in person. Post a reply at least three sentences long. You can reply directly to the comment, or in a private message. There's no need to respond with a new post on the other person's wall.
    • Older relatives, "low tech" people, and people who don't use social media much are all more likely to expect an individual response.
    • You can use the opportunity to reconnect with friends you haven't seen in a long time, even if they only posted a short message for your birthday.
  4. 4

    Respond briefly to other posts (optional). As mentioned above, there is no need to respond to every person individually. However, if you'd like to take the extra time, you could "Like" each Facebook post, or reply to any social media post with a short comment such as "Thanks for thinking of me!" or "Thanks, I appreciate it!"

2

In Person

  1. 1

    Thank someone in person. When possible, thank someone in person after he gives you a birthday present, or puts extra effort into a birthday wish. Give each friend or group of friends your full attention, smile, and make eye contact while delivering your thanks. Here are some ideas on how to do it:
    • Your card meant a lot to me. It really cheered me up.
    • That was the perfect birthday gift! You know me so well.
    • See the example section below for more ideas.
  2. 2

    Send a card, email or letter. Relatives and friends older than yourself tend to appreciate receiving a thank you card in the mail. Always add a handwritten message.[2] A short thank you message is fine, but adding a heartfelt message is recommended for people who have been unusually generous or kind.
    • Look at the examples section if you need ideas on what to write.
  3. 3

    Be specific. Make your friend feel special for her contribution to your birthday celebration, and to your life. Mention the specific gift she gave you, or the card she sent. Tell her how you will use the gift, or that you will "enjoy it for a long time."

  4. 4

    Say what your friend wants to hear. Never criticize the gift your friend sent you, bring up something embarrassing, or do anything else that might upset him. If you dislike the gift, try to find something about it that you do enjoy, or thank him for taking the time to pick out (or create) such a thoughtful gift.

Example Responses

  1. 1

    Give out compliments. Let the well-wishers know how wonderful they are, and how much you appreciate them. You can use more specific compliments that match your friends', or use these examples:
    • Thank you, that's such a kind thing to say!
    • Thank you, you've been a bright and wonderful part of my life.
    • I'm so lucky to have a group of friends like you.
    • Give yourselves a pat on the back for being such great friends this past year.
  2. 2

    Tell everyone how much the wishes meant to you. Let your friends know you appreciate the positive effect they have on your life. Here are a couple examples:
    • Your message gave me a smile that lasted all day.
    • It was so wonderful to hear from you. You made my birthday so special.
  3. 3

    Post something unique. If you're posting a mass thank you message on social media, sometimes you want to stand out a little. Try one of the following ideas:
    • Say something funny, like "It feels great to have so many friends wishing me a happy birthday. You can all have 1/207 of my birthday cake."
    • Say "Thank you!" in different languages. Try Salamat!, Foole tunk!, or pick your favorites by searching online.
    • Link to a video. There are many "thank you" videos available online, or you can find a clip from your favorite movie, band, or cute animal acting excited.
  4. 4

    Give a serious, meaningful thank you. Sometimes, it feels great to communicate your sincere, deep appreciation for a full year of kindness and support. Tweak these examples to include specific events in your life for greater effect:
    • I feel blessed every day, but most of all on the day when my friends send a flood of support and smiles. Thank you everyone for reminding me what matters on my birthday this year."
    • It's been a difficult year, but the support of my friends and family made all the difference. My heartfelt thanks to all of you who helped get me back on my feet and face the next year with a smile instead of a frown.
