Graduation Thank You Cards — Mailed For You

  • Should you send thank you cards for graduation gifts?

    Yes. If you learn anything from your years of education it's that you must always show your gratitude and send thank you cards. It's an easy thing to do, but one that should never be overlooked.

    If someone went out of their way in any way shape or form, you should always at least consider sending them a thank you card. If someone gave you a graduation gift that's one example. If someone helped you in any other way (like connecting you with your new internship) is another example. Even if you had a friend or a tutor that helped get you over that finals finish line, you should send them a graduation thank you card.

    If nothing else, sending graduation thank you cards will help get your thank you card sending habits ready for the real world where writing thank you cards is a must in professional settings.

  • What do you say in a thank you card for graduation?

    So maybe you've written about a million research papers, but somehow writing a graduation thank you card still feels like an insurmountable task. Not to worry. We've got you covered. We've outlined a few key things to mention in your card, but at the end of the day the key to writing a stellar card (any card) is sincerity. So long as you write from the heart, you'll be A-OK.

    Things to include in your graduation thank you cards:

    • A message of thanks. [May sound obvious, but consider opening your card with a simple thank you. This will prevent any potential for getting off topic.]
    • Details on what you're thankful for. [Did they gift you something? Did they help you out by tutoring or maybe connecting you with someone important? Maybe they just provided you with an extra dose of support in the last few years?]
    • How their contribution has benefitted you. [How are you going to use the cash they gave you? Why was their support helpful to you? etc.]

    The details are what make the message unique and effective so get to them asap. And remember, you don't have a whole lot of space (this is not your dissertation) so keep it short, sweet, and to the point. And finally -- don't write anything you don't mean... Remember, be sincere. Here are two examples of what this looks like in practice:

    Thank you so much for all the support you've provided me in these last few years. I honestly can't imagine how difficult navigating law school would have been without your guidance. I have valued your insightful advice and your emotional support (you always knew exactly when I needed it most) equally. Your efforts have helped to endlessly motivate and encourage me to making it to graduation and I am forever grateful. Thank you.

    Mr. Swinde,
    I am so grateful for your generous graduation gift of $300 and feel very lucky to have someone so thoughtful in my life. I have used the money towards setting up my new inhome office and getting my new business's website up and running. I'm so excited to start this new post-graduation chapter in my life and am so thankful for your help in making that happen!"
