24 Ways to Say Happy Thanksgiving to Your Daughter

Thanksgiving is about counting our blessings, and no, we’re not just talking about the blessings of way-too-many side dishes. Far more important than the mashed potatoes on the table are the special people in your life. And if you have a daughter to call your own… well, it doesn’t get more special than that.

So why not let her know by sending her a unique Thanksgiving greeting? It doesn’t have to be sentimental or overtly affectionate. A cute or funny Turkey Day message will also do the trick, especially if that’s the kind of stuff your daughter likes.

If you’re not sure what words to use, check out the following list of Thanksgiving wishes for a daughter. The ideas here come in a range of styles, so you can find something your daughter will appreciate. If it also inspires her to be more thankful for the people in her own life, that’s just gravy.
