How to Say Thank You for the Christmas Card with 15 Examples

In this post, you will learn how to thank someone for a Christmas card.

Usually, I recommend writing a handwritten thank you notecard when saying thank you. However, you do not need to mail a thank you card for a Christmas card you receive in the mail. However, you can if you want to!

The best way to say thank you for a Christmas card is to acknowledge the card. Instead of writing and mailing a handwritten note, you could:

  • Thank them in person the next time you see them.
  • Send them a thank you text message.
  • Mention during a phone call.
  • If you are mailing them a Christmas card (after you receive their card), you can include a short “thank you for the Christmas card” message in your card to them.

You also don’t need to write a thank you note card in response to a year-end holiday letter to which the person sent everyone they sent Christmas cards. Of course, if there is something you want to follow up on, you can write them a note!

If you received a gift card or Christmas money in a Christmas card, please review the Saying Thank You for the Christmas Gifts guide.

How to Say Thank You for the Christmas Card

The goal of saying thank you for the Christmas Card is to acknowledge that you received it and show appreciation to them for thinking of you.

In your message, if they included a letter or photo, you can also mention them. Also, sometimes there might not be a traditional Christmas Card as some people send out a photo card with their family that includes a holiday greeting and do not include a card.

Depending on when you are saying thank you (before or after the holiday), you can add a holiday message, such as Merry Christmas or Happy New Year.

Thank You For the Christmas Card Message Examples

Here are examples of how you can say thank you for the Christmas card in a text message or in person. Sometimes all you need is one sentence to show your gratitude and appreciation.

Some examples will mention a letter or photo card and a holiday greeting. The sample message wording can be adjusted to work for kids or pets.
