Some messages are just for the recipient to see.

Ensure that your personal notes stay just that — personal. Whether it’s an inside joke or a sensitive condolence, you can make sure your message is seen only by the recipient by marking it private.

When we organised a condolence Thankbox for a colleague, we each wanted to share some personal memories and words of comfort that were private. Thankbox allowed us to express those thoughts intimately, knowing they were meant only for her to see.

How Thankbox private messages work

Create your Thankbox as usual and invite contributors.

Everyone can then write their message and simply tick the ‘Hide’ button before submitting it. This ensures that only the recipient sees the private messages, keeping them confidential while still celebrating together in a shared Thankbox.

Thankbox is not just about sending messages; it’s about crafting experiences. An all-inclusive appreciation platform for all of your card & gifting needs.

 Definitely the most slick and stylish way to do a card & collection. Not only that, but the recipient gets to choose their own gift. Brilliant!

Frequently Asked Questions

We provide more answers on our support page, so check that too if you can't find what you are looking for here.

Can I send a private message in a group Thankbox?

Yes, you can! While Thankbox is known for group messages where everyone can see the contributions, the Private Messages feature allows you to send a note that only the recipient can view. This is perfect for adding that personal touch or when the message is sensitive or meant for their eyes only.

Can I see all private messages as the Thankbox administrator?

Yes, if you’ve set up the Thankbox then you’ll be able to see all private messages. You retain full control of what ends up in the card. You can delete and edit inappropriate messages at any time.

Can I add an image or video to my private message?

You can add GIFs, photos & videos to your private message. Any media will be hidden to everyone except the recipient.

Can I make my message private after I’ve already written it?

You can edit your message at any time after writing it and until the Thankbox is sent. This includes marking it private or public.

Is there a limit to the number of messages in a Thankbox?


Shortest answer ever! There is also no limit to the number of words contributors can write in their messages. It means everyone who wants to contribute to a Thankbox can. They can express themselves without restriction. 

And that means there’s no limit to the feelgood factor sent to the recipient of a Thankbox. A great example is the public Thankbox to wish Sir David Attenborough a happy 96th birthday.
