16 Thank You for the Valentine’s Gift Messages for Lovers, Friends, and Coworkers

After receiving a Valentine’s Day gift,  saying thank you is thoughtful. 

You can send a text message, email, or a handwritten thank-you card.

Remember that your wording will vary depending on who gave the gift. For example, my mom gives her kids and grandkids a $5 treat for Valentine’s Day. I will write her a different note than when I receive a romantic gift from my husband.

Examples are provided below for different relationships. 

Valentine’s Day Thank You Message Template:

Here is a template for writing a thank you message for Valentine’s Day gifts. Remember that the best thank you messages will mention the gift specifically. 

Dear [name of the person who gave the gift],

Thank you for the [insert gift] for Valentine’s Day. The [insert gift] is fantastic. When using it, I will think of you [and be reminded of your love – if appropriate]. Or you can share why you appreciated the gift.

*The closing will need to be adjusted depending on who you are thanking. Love is okay for family members or significant others; For bosses, coworkers, teachers, and students, use Sincerely or Best Regards.
