Say Thank You This Valentine’s Day: 25 Example Messages

Valentine’s Day is a lovely opportunity to express gratitude to your Valentine, friends, and family.

Most Valentine’s Day cards come with a printed verse in them. You can write a personalized message on the other side (if it is a folded card) or above or below the printed verse.

If you need to say thank you for a gift, check out our Thank You For the Valentine’s Gift guide.

Why Say Thank You in Your Valentine’s Day Card?

Traditional gifts such as flowers, candy, and chocolates are easy. Expressing your gratitude may make their day.

  • A Touching Surprise. Including “I love you” is easy and expected. Adding gratitude will be a lovely surprise.
  • Love Language. If you are giving a card to someone whose love language is “words of affirmation,” including a thank you message is perfect for them.
  • Words Matter.  I am not saying that you shouldn’t give a physical gift, but your words of thanks could be more meaningful than the flowers!
  • Gratitude. A message sent to a friend is a chance to let them know you are glad they are in your life.

Valentine Messages for Your Coworkers or Boss

If you are only giving a Valentine to your boss, you may be viewed as sucking up, so consider giving everyone on the team a Valentine. I would say that compliments are usually appreciated!

Again, like any thank you message, your thank you will depend on your relationship with the person. “Happy Valentine’s Day” can be added to the end of any of these messages to make it feel like a Valentine’s Day message.

  3. I am grateful that we’ve become friends while working together.
  4. If you’ve finished a big project with their help – Thank you for helping me with the big project (replace “big” with the name of the project).
  5. You’re a wonderful boss! Thanks for bringing in the treats for Valentine’s Day.
