Saying Thank you For Birthday Wishes

Deciding how to thank people for their birthday wishes is really up to you. The decision whether to call, text, write a note, or use social media to thank people for their birthday wishes really boils down to your relationship with the person and the method they used to send their greetings.

If someone took the time to call you or left a heartfelt voicemail, giving them a call back adds a personal touch they’ll likely appreciate. For texts and social media wishes, replying in the same format is perfectly acceptable and keeps the thank-you aligned with how they reached out.

Written notes are a lovely, traditional method to express gratitude, especially for gifts or particularly thoughtful wishes; they carry a classic, personal charm that stands out in our digital world.

Ultimately, matching your response to the medium used and the closeness of your relationship with the person can make your thank-you feel more thoughtful and genuine.
