Flowers are a popular Mother’s Day gift. Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of May in the United States.
If you received flowers for Mother’s Day and want to send a thank-you note, there are some examples below the tips. Also, there are two templates to thank someone for any type of flowers.
I cannot recall a Mother’s Day where my mom did not receive flowers from my dad! He likes to give her carnations, hanging baskets, and other flowers that he can plant outside for her.
Flowers that could be planted outside are an option with the warmer May weather. Some children make a tradition of planting flowers on Mother’s day for their mom.
- It’s up to you if you send a handwritten note or tell the person thank you in another way. My mom (who taught me about thank-you not writing) tells my dad in person.
- If the flowers were delivered, you could opt to send the note in the mail.
- The note can emphasize why you liked the flowers (color, beauty, etc.) or how they made you feel (remembered, valued, appreciated, loved, etc.) or both.
- You can customize the notes as needed based on who the gift was from, type and color of flowers. Also, you can take bits from different examples to use in your note. Or come up with your own personal wording!
- If you received another gift (dinner, other meal, chocolate, candy, etc.) with the flowers, you could thank the person using the same note.
The examples below only include the middle section of the thank-you note (if you are handwriting or emailing the note). Your note will need to look like this:
Dear Recipients’ Name,
Example from below customized for your situation.
Thanks again! or Sincerely,
