We all have a lot to be thankful for and a lot of people to say thank you to. Sometimes the best way to say this is with a thank you card, gift or flowers. These simple acts show your appreciation for the people and things you are most grateful for and make the days of those you thank a little bit kinder.
While we often send thank you cards for the big occasions and moments, such as to teachers, wedding thank you cards, Christmas thank you cards, or baby thank you cards, we believe it’s also important to celebrate every day. That’s why we reached out to our TouchNote customers and asked them, “what are you thankful for this year?”
From the sentimental to the funny to the truly unique reasons to say thank you, we collated some of the best answers. Inspired by these responses, we’ve also created a showcase of some thank you card and gift ideas that we think help to show appreciation for those everyday moments.
Many of the people asked wanted to say thank you to their friends and family who provide love, support and happy memories. We can’t underestimate the importance of the community and network we surround ourselves with, or the importance of saying thank you for the strength they provide us with.
My friends are loving, fun and supportive. Life would be empty without them.
The time that I spend with my husband.
My incredible family and the ability and resources to spend time and do great things with them.
I’m thankful for being able to see my family for the first time in a year this summer. I’m hoping it won’t be so long until the next time.
To have the unwavering support of my family to take on a new job that requires me to spend 4 hours commuting each day. It takes a village to raise children and I love my village.
My mom who is 91 & just survived Covid-19.
My family, we are a large family and live close to each other. We have a family dinner once a month, but talk and see each other throughout the year!
Love 💞 and support from family & friends as I recover from surgery and go through chemo…. And being able to stay here to keep loving and supporting them back in coming years!!
Time with family making new traditions.
I’m thankful for my friends and co-workers who supported me through my husband’s 7-month deployment this year. It was the roughest deployment for me in his 18+ years of service. I’m incredibly grateful for all the love and support that I received from those in my “circle”.

I am so grateful she can follow my work and travels.
