I recommend including specific examples that you are thankful for. “Thank you for all you do, you are great” feels like a printed message in a greeting card. Use your own words to let them know what you are grateful for.
My husband helps with the dishes and cleaning up the kitchen. Sometimes he will make the meal.
What has your spouse done recently that you would like to recognize? Think about this and then include those things in the note. Have they helped extra with the kids? Did they take care of you and the household when you were sick? Are they working hard every day so that you can be a stay at home parent? Did they work overtime to earn extra money to buy you something special?
Thanking your spouse will likely be a more personal note than a typical thank you note. The examples below will be based on my own experiences and imagination. They should help you get started if you are not sure what to say. Remember to personalize it. The notes can be concluded with “Love” or “I Love You” followed by your name.
