What to Say in a College or High School Graduation Thank You Card

Sometimes it can be difficult to figure out nice things to write or say in a graduation thank you card. Graduating from college or high school is, of course, one of the most important achievements in someone’s life. Graduation thank you notes or messages are usually send by graduates to friends and relatives for attending their event, and for their fabulous gifts and money that they gave to mark their graduation ceremony.

When you are in the urge to write one, It is a good idea to start the first line with the phrase, “thank you for…” and then mention what the gift was. In the case of a gift of money, never mention the amount that was given in your note. However, simply say what you are planning to do with the money that was given.

In the second line, you should express how much you appreciate the gift and what you plan to do with it. Finally, thank the giver once again for the gift, their good wishes and for managing time to attend your special event.

Now, get your card wordings ideas from the list below and then write your own unique message to express your gratitude. If you still don’t know what to write in a card, copy one from the list below that best describes the gift and the giver. You can as well send these thank you notes via text/SMS, email, Facebook, Twitter, IM or any of the social networking sites.
