How to Write a Thank You for Cash Gift

Posted April 29, 2014 | 31 Comments

It’s time for another Ask Emmaline question! We received this message from Anna who asks, “I’m writing thank you cards as I receive wedding gifts. I received a gift of cash and I don’t know what to say in the card. Any advice?” Writing a proper thank you for cash gift is easy to do and requires just a few tips. Read on to see a sample thank you for cash gift, see a few thank you cards, and enter for a chance to win a set of forty thank you cards for your big day!

How to Write a Thank You for Cash Gift

If you receive a cash gift, the number one rule is to write how you plan to use it. Guests like to know that their gift of money will be enjoyed. For example, you can say something like, “Thank you for the gift of money. We plan to use it as part of our down payment on a house.” Or, “Thank you for the generous check. We are saving for a new car and this will help us reach our goal.” Most importantly? Be honest and sincere. Here’s an example:

Example Thank You for Cash Gift

Dear Aunt Louise and Uncle Fran,

Thank you for your generous gift of money. We are saving for a new home and we will be able to use it towards our down payment. Thank for you thinking of us and sharing our special day. Love, Mary and Tom

Example Thank You (If They Couldn’t Attend)

Dear Aunt Louise and Uncle Fran,

Thank you for your generous gift of money. We are saving for a new home and we will be able to use it towards our down payment. Thank for you thinking of us. We are sorry you could not attend our wedding but we hope to see you soon. Love, Mary and Tom

Hope it helps!

    I love the rustic looking thank you cards. The thank you cards for the wedding party and vendors are great as well, and I believe in sending Thank yous to the vendors as well.
