Help with Gift Messages

and Sample Messages

Are you ready to send a gift, but stuck on the gift message? We may be able to help you with some general greeting message advice and some sample gift messages for various occasions.

It's not always easy to compose a gift message to accompany a gift. We at Manhattan Fruitier have years of experience assisting our customers in composing meaningful messages. Certain gift messages write themselves, for example, "Good luck on your first day of work" or "Happy Holidays to Everyone". Other gift messages may prove more challenging, such as gift cards accompanying a sympathy gift, get well gift, new baby basket, thank you gift, birthday gift or housewarming gift. Remember, every gift can be elevated by a memorable or sincere gift message.

Sample gift messages that might inspire your own personalized greeting:

Apology Notes
Baby & Congratulations Notes
Birthday & Anniversary Cards
Get Well Soon Notes
Holiday Notes
Housewarming Notes
Sympathy Notes
Thank You Notes

General Suggestions on Writing a Gift Message:

  • Even though your gift may be late, do not apologize for the tardiness in the first line as this tends to put the emphasis on you and sets up a defensive tone.

  • Make sure you have the proper spelling of the person's name.

  • A late gift and note is vastly preferable to no gift and note at all.

  • It's a good rule to say what you really mean rather than to second guess what you think the person might be expecting.

  • Use notes to introduce a personal element into your business relationships, especially when someone has done more than what the occasion calls for.
