Gracias, Merci and Other Better Ways to Say ‘Thank You’

Thank you. These are two little words that we hear uttered over and over again. And like anything that you become too used to, the words will start to lose all meaning. Sometimes, you want a better way of expressing your thanks that truly encapsulates your gratitude for an act of kindness that someone has done for you. In this blog post, we are going to be talking about a few more effective ways that you can express your thanks to people. This way, you are better able to show people when they have done something that really matters to you.

Use Words like ‘Appreciate’ and ‘Grateful’

There is no doubt that the phrase ‘thank you’ is overused, so you can instead use some other words that better express how you are feeling. Telling someone ‘I really appreciate it’ or ‘I am so grateful for what you did’ instantly has a much stronger meaning, and helps to convey to them that they have done so much to help you out. It may be simple, but just using some words other than ‘thank you’ can make all the difference.

Explain How They Helped You

Rather than just expressing your thanks and going no further, you can show people that you appreciate what they have done by explaining exactly how it has made a difference to you. It could be something as simple as expressing to a work colleague how busy you have been, and how pleased you are that they were able to take something off your plate. The other advantage of properly expressing your gratitude is that people are much more likely to help you out when you find yourself in a similar situation in the future.

Tell Them You Will Repay Them

People can tell that you are truly grateful when you make an offer to repay them for their kindness. Use a phrase like ‘how can I repay you?’ to do this. A lot of the time, people will respond that there is nothing that you need to do, but you can really go above and beyond by offering to do something for them anyway. Even if it is only a small gesture, people still appreciate that you have acknowledged what you have done for them.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

The old adage in the title is one that you will have heard a million times before, but that doesn’t make it any less true. So, if you have been to an event that they have organised, you could send them a personalised thank you note from Giftsin24. The simplest way of expressing your thanks is by offering a reciprocal gesture.   

These are just a few of the ways that you can go above and beyond when you are saying thank you. Expressing your gratitude is a great way to build on a relationship with someone, and it is also something which is very straightforward to do.
