The popular statement no man is an island holds true and it means that we all need help at one point in our lives. We also need to render help to others because as we need others, others need us too.
Sometimes we are helped by family and friends. Other times, people who we don’t know can just step in and help us. It may be when we require a little help and other times it is when the help is direly needed.
When help shows up for you, what do you say to the person who helped you? You may want to tell them or show them that their help meant a lot to you. So how do you go about it?

As basic as it sounds and as common as it is used, it is one of the most effective ways to appreciate a person’s help.
This is one of the first ways that a person learns to greatly appreciate a person’s help.
Saying just thank you can do the job. Other times you can say thank you so much. Then if you have a particular reason or various reasons for thanking the person you can then say, “I want to thank you for…”
Accept my gratitude
Another way to tell a person that their help is greatly appreciated is to say, “Accept my gratitude”. The statement lets the person know that you feel grateful and that is your way of expressing thanks.
You can say the statement alone and you can also say ‘Accept my sincerest gratitude’. The tone of voice you use to say it and your expression while saying it will let the person know the extent of your gratitude.
I am grateful for the gift of you
Another way to tell a person that their help is greatly appreciated is to tell them “I am grateful for the gift of you”. This is an emotional way to appreciate your loved one.
The statement shows that the person has been offering help to you for the longest of times and has always come through for you even in difficult situations.
While saying this, you can tell the person ways that they have helped you and how you appreciate them every step of the way.
You always show up for me, I don’t take it for granted
There are people in our lives who whenever we need them, always show up for us. This means that they always support and encourage us in various ways.
It could be financially, emotionally, physically, and/or spiritually. Whatever way the person was there for you, you could appreciate the person for showing up for you.
When a person helps you, it’s nice not to recognize it. Feeling entitled to their help means that you are taking it for granted.
That’s why the statement “You always show up for me and I don’t take it for granted” is another best way to tell a person that you greatly appreciate their help.
I appreciate your care and support
You can let a person know that you are highly grateful for their help by telling them “I appreciate your care and support”. The statement shows that those set of people have paid attention to you and always think about you.
It may be someone very close to you who has been taking care of you during sensitive periods and has been helping and encouraging you. It could be the words they said or their actions.
Sometimes, having the knowledge that someone is ready to give you help when you need it is enough to feel cared for and supported.
I will forever owe you
Saying “I will forever owe you” is another way to tell a person that their help is greatly appreciated. There are times when a person does something for you that you know you may not be able to pay them back in the same measure they helped you.
Situations may be flipped, and you may be in a situation where they sincerely need your help. Nobody actually knows but just in case it happens, telling them that you owe them will let them know that you are willing to help them if they ever need your help.
Your help is invaluable
The statement “Your help is invaluable” is also a great way to say that a person’s help is greatly appreciated. When something is invaluable to you, it means that it was extremely useful.
Thus when you tell a person that their was invaluable to you, what you mean is that their help was really useful and that you appreciate it a lot. This is another way to greatly appreciate a person’s help.
My sincerest gratitude to you
Saying “My sincerest gratitude to you” can also communicate to a person that you really appreciate their help. This is because when you express a feeling in all sincerity, it’s genuine.
You are telling the person what you really think or feel about their help. What you feel is gratitude and that is why you are expressing your thanks. The person would obviously accept your thanks.
I am obliged to you
A person can show that they greatly appreciate the help of another when they tell him/her “I am obliged to you”. When you oblige yourself to a person, it means that you will be willing to help them by doing what they ask.
It also means that you are willing to do what a person wants you to do. It may seem as if it’s a duty or law but it’s actually not. It is simply because the person helped in such a great way that you feel obliged to return the help.
I am indebted to you
Another way that you can tell a person that you greatly appreciate their help is to say, “I am indebted to you”. When you are indebted to a person, it means that you are grateful for the help they offered you.
The help may have come at the time when you needed it most or it may have been constant for a period of time. But it must be so great that the person has no choice but to owe you one.
Your contribution is duly acknowledged
When you want to use the statement “Your contribution is duly acknowledged” to tell a person that their help is duly appreciated, it means you are using it in public.
The contribution they made either by oral suggestion or by action, must have been a great help to you which is why you are expressing thanks to them in public.
The teamwork is appreciated
When you are leading a team either in a company or on a smaller scale, you will realize that it’s not easy to lead a group of people towards a common goal.
If you have a team that made things easy for you, then you should let them know that agreeing to work together made your work easy for you and was really helpful. You can do that by telling them, “The teamwork is appreciated.”
Thank you for coming through for me
You can tell a person whose action has been of great help to you that you truly appreciate it when you say, “Thank you for coming through for me”. The statement shows that you were probably in a tight corner and the person pressed themselves to help you.
They may have even discomforted themselves to help you out which is why you thank them for coming through for you.
Your kindness is not unnoticed
A person who shows kindness to you may be helping you without even knowing it. Kind people tend to offer help even when they are not asked. Due to their friendly and gentle nature, they care about anyone who is in need.
You may have come across a kind person who extended help to you when you needed it most.
Sometimes they don’t ask for anything in return. So the best way to show them that you appreciate their help is to acknowledge their kindness.
You being in my life means the world to me and your presence is much appreciated
Sometimes the universe tilts in our favor and brings people into our lives who are invaluable and irreplaceable.
When you come across such people, it is nice to let them know that their presence in your life will not be taken for granted.
You’re such a lifesaver
We can call a person a lifesaver for various reasons. It could be literal; that is, they actually did help you when you were in a really difficult situation.
Other times, it could be that they helped you in a hard time but not such that you would have died if they didn’t help you.
Couldn’t have done it without you
It is a good thing that when a person helps you out you should acknowledge their help. Don’t allow pride to get in the way next time, they may ignore you when you ask for help.
I treasure your input
When you treasure something, you preserve it carefully because you love it and it’s extremely valuable to you. Aside from physical property, you can treasure a memory or a person’s contribution to you.
I value your meticulousness
A person who shows meticulousness while doing a thing either loves that stuff because it’s his/her or loves it as he/she would his/her own.
If a person is meticulous while doing something for you then it is right that you appreciate them.
Grateful for your input in resolving the problem
Sometimes when you are backed up against the wall or you are at the edge of a cliff, someone may make a suggestion or do something that will greatly relieve you of that problem.
When that happens, you must let them know how much you appreciate their help.
Appreciation is the way to go when someone does something that really helps you. Instead of simply telling the person that their help is greatly appreciated, you can pick any of the twenty listed expressions to say your mind.
That will make your gratitude more creative and acceptable.
