33 Thank You For Visiting Note Messages

After someone visits with you, you may want to thank the friend or family member for visiting.

I have included the examples below that will help you with the wording to say thank you to someone after they visit. The message ideas will help you express your gratitude and appreciation.

If you were the guest and want to thank the host, read the “Thank you for having me over” post.

Note: The sample messages are for personal visits at homes to thank someone for visiting, not for when someone visited a business, restaurant, event, fundraiser, etc.

I prefer writing a handwritten thank-you note card, but you could also send a thank-you email or text message.

Thank You For Visiting Message Template

You can use this template to thank guests after they visit you.

Dear [Person’s Name],

Thank you for visiting [me/us] [say here when they visited (ex. last week)]. I enjoyed spending time with you [and your family – or whoever else came along]. [Mention more about the visit, perhaps from the list above].

[Your Name]

Note: fill in words in [brackets] as needed for your note.

What to Thank the Visitor(s) For

Here are a few suggestions of what you could thank your family or friends for after they visit you.

  • Travel time if they came from a distance.
  • Any food, dessert, or treat they brought (you make want to review the thank you for the cookies examples too)
  • The great conversation, quality time, or something you learned.
  • Anything fun you did together during the visit.
  • The laughter and good times!

Tips for Your Thank-You Note Messages

Here are some more tips for saying thank you for a visit.

  • Most people enjoy compliments, so consider including one.
  • Be as specific as possible about what you are thanking the person for.
  • If the visit was for a holiday, such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, your birthday, another event, or another special occasion, you could modify the examples to include appropriate wording. For example, adding “birthday” before the word “visit.”
  • You can also mention future visits if you plan to meet again soon.
  • Please read through all the examples, as you can pick and choose wording that will work best for you when you write your note. You want the message to sound like things you would say and not like you copied a random example from the Internet.
  • If you write a handwritten note or email, include all the thank-you note parts. For example, you can see all five parts of a thank you note here or follow the template below:
