Happy Birthday! Congratulations on making it another year. Since you’ve found this page, I’m assuming you want to thank those that gave you gifts or wished you happy birthday. Thank you messages for birthday wishes are popular on Facebook as Facebook may notify your friends of your birthday (if your settings allow for it).
A birthday thank-you note is similar to any thank-you for a gift, only you’ll want to include “birthday” in your note to acknowledge that was the event that you received it for. The examples of how to thank for money may also be helpful. Just remember to add “birthday” before the word gift or money.
If you had a party, you can also use the note as a way to acknowledge the giver’s presence.
For gifts, I recommend sending or delivering a handwritten thank you note card. For birthday wishes received via a text message or Facebook (or other social media), you can thank people using a text, Facebook, etc.
Birthday thank you examples:
Thank you for [gift] for my birthday. I will [use/enjoy/read/listen/appropriate verb] [to] it soon. I was excited that you remembered how much I like [subject matter of gift]. [I also thank you for coming to the party – include if you had a party].
Thank you for the money for my birthday! I will be spending it on lunches out while at the office. I usually pack my life everyday so going out will be a real treat for me!
I enjoyed seeing at my birthday party. I appreciate that you found a bottle from the year I was born. I will be saving the bottle after we drink the wine.
I love the cat coloring book that you gave me for my birthday. I had no idea that adult coloring books are the rage now. This book is perfect for me given my love of cats! I am looking forward to coloring while I watch TV in the evenings. Thank you!

The cat earrings you picked out for me are perfect. They are cute and as you know, I don’t think all cat items are cute! I will wear these earrings often as they are adorable. They remind me of my cat, [cat name].
