Show Your Gratitude With These 50 Thanksgiving Greetings

Share the season of gratitude with family and friends with a heartfelt message.

Thanksgiving may be full of turkey dinners and time with family and friends, but it's also the season for warm, fuzzy feelings and all things gratitude. It's in the holiday's name, for crying out loud! It's that magical time of year when we look around, take a deep breath, and find ourselves bubbling with the urge to send out some extra love and thankfulness.

While surprise pumpkin pies or even doing the dishes (hint, hint) are great ways to show appreciation, nothing beats telling someone directly how much they mean to you. Whether you're writing a letter, posting a comment on someone's social media, or speaking to them face to face, this always holds true.

But what if you can't think of the right words to say? Don't worry. Not everyone's the best with words. But we've got your back. That's why we've put together some seriously sweet words you can write in a greeting card this season, or send on a tag along with some fun, festive flowers. You don't have to deliver them perfectly. All that matters is that you let someone know that you care.

Read on for some of our suggestions for Thanksgiving greetings you can send to those close to you, whether you want to make sure you let someone know exactly how happy you are that they're in your life or you just want to send a funny thank-you note. There's a little something for everyone here.
