So your partner or client sent you an amazing holiday gift this year – maybe it was a bottle of fancy Champagne, or a gift certificate to a great restaurant in the city. No matter what you received, a return “thank you” is considered good etiquette. But there is a big difference between professional and personal thank you cards! Writing thank you card messages for business calls for a certain tone – one that is not over-the-top groveling, but still strikes the magnitude of the generosity. Here are some great examples of business thank you card messages.

Thank You Card Messages for Business

For Partners:

“Thank you for the generous gift! We greatly value our partnership with you and we’re looking forward to more success in 2019.”

“We were blown away by your gift! Thank you for your generosity and your wonderful partnership! Happy holidays.”

“We sincerely appreciate the [gift] you sent our way, and we are so grateful for our partnership. Thank you!”

“Thank you so much for the generous gift! It’s been a great year working with you – looking forward to 2019.” 


For Clients:

“We absolutely loved the [gift] you sent. Looking forward to serving you in the new year! Thank you so much.”

“Wanted to send our sincere thanks for your generous gift! The team loved it – we’re so grateful for clients like you!” 

“Thank you so much for sending that wonderful [gift]. All of us at [company name] appreciate your generosity and your business.” 

“Thank you very much for the fabulous [gift]. You’re too generous – it is our pleasure to serve you!”


“Should I thank my boss for a bonus or Holiday gift?”

Yes – you should acknowledge your boss when you receive a gift or a bonus. Your boss does not have to give anything – you received one because they think you deserve it. Even if the entire company got the same holiday bonus or gift, it’s a gesture that deserves a thank you. A short note to express your gratitude (and yes, it can be an email) is just good etiquette. Here are some examples:

“Thank you for the generous bonus. I appreciate having my hard work recognized. I’m fortunate to work for a company that encourages its employees to succeed, while giving them the support to do so.” 

“I wanted to thank you for my holiday bonus. It was unexpected and will be put to good use. I enjoy being part of your team, and look forward to achieving more success in the New Year.”
