Appreciation Messages

It is possible for one to encounter a ‘guardian angel’ or a kind soul who extends his hand of kindness to us sometimes in our lives. When this happens, our hearts are filled with gratitude that we are compelled to respond in appreciation.

There are many ways to express your appreciation of someone who has done a good deed to you. You can say a simple ‘thank you’ or a good handshake; a gift as a token of appreciation is also acceptable as long as it is not outlandish that may cause embarrassment to the recipient.

However, a simple and effective way to show your appreciation is to write an appreciation message in response to the good deed. A well written letter of appreciation can convey your depth of gratitude when the right words are used as you can be free to express yourself with examples or feelings.

An appreciation message can be formally or informally written; if it is written between friends or family, it can be informally written where one can be more expressive in the letter content. Otherwise, the letter is formal, especially when it is in the business environment or acquaintances.

Occasions that warrant an appreciation message could include a promotion, a bonus, a substantial increment or some form of recognition for the employee in the workplace. An appreciation message could be written by an employee to return thanks to the management, superior or colleagues who have supported and assisted in the success of the employee.

Outside the office, appreciation messages can be conveyed between friends and family where a simple written thank you note in appreciation of the love, care, support or gift is delivered to the sender of the message.

Below is a sample ‘Appreciation’ message letter which an employee writes to his boss after receiving a recommended promotion in the office.
