When someone says “I appreciate you for everything you do for me” that’s a big thing.
This shows they value your support in life.
But when you get appreciation like this, this person genuinely expresses their gratitude to be with them and do something for them.
Indeed, whatever you are doing (or did) for them is your commitment to this relationship.
If you want to acknowledge their gratitude with better responses than just ‘Thanks’, here’s what you can say when someone appreciates you.
How To Respond To “I Appreciate Everything You Do For Me”?
Your people express their appreciation for having you around in the tough times.
But, you don’t think you have done anything great for them.
What you see is, you just play your part as a genuine friend or family member. Nothing more.
In response to that, you can simply say ‘Thank you for appreciation’. But there’s more to say.
Here you want them to feel more relaxed about your connection.
That you don’t mind doing such a thing for them and actually, you’re glad to help them out.
You’re just playing your part and it’s not a big deal for you.
To make it clear, here’s how you can respond when someone says ‘I appreciate you for everything you do for me’ personally or in message.
1. “Oh come on. I did what I could do for you, that’s nothing more.”
You played your role in their life and it’s nothing great you do.
So you want them to take it easy.
2. “I’m happy that I can help you with something.”
This is a simple response to show that you want to help them out and that you did it right.

3. “Don’t worry, I’m here for you anytime.”
Assure them that they can reach out to you without feeling uncomfortable or insecure.
This reply is to make them feel at ease with your connection.
4. “You would do the same for me, if you were at my place.”
This is to show that you’re both in the same stage and will be available for each other.
5. “That’s how the family works. Am I right?”
Being a family member, you don’t want them to thank you for anything.
It’s part of your responsibility and you are ready to do anything for them.
6. “Well, to be honest, I don’t think I could do it without you. So thank you.”
Show that it’s their motivation and inspiration that helps you do what you can do for them.
7. “Don’t mention it. You make me feel like I’m not your own.”
It hurts when someone close appreciates you for the small things that you did.
Tell them not to say it again, you did it because you are one of them.
8. “You’re happy, that’s what matters to me the most.”
No matter how hard it might look, you are happy to help them out.
9. “No, I appreciate you more and I mean it.”
Because they did more than what you just did for them just now.
So, this respectful response is to show that you appreciate them for everything they do for you.
Also, you didn’t even forget a single thing.
10. “You make me feel appreciated and respected every time.”
And, it makes your day every time they express their kind appreciation to you.
11. “I don’t think I did enough. You did a lot for me.”
It’s just a normal thing and you want to do more for them.
12. “Please don’t say anything more, I might cry over it.”
This is a fun response to share when your close one appreciates you for a small thing.
To make the situation lighter (not emotional), you can say this.

13. “You did even great things for me, have I ever said this to you?”
So you want them to not be so appreciative of the tiny favor you just did.
You remind them that they did even more great things for you.
14. “I think we are even now, Are we?”
You’re just kidding with your cousin or friend who expresses gratitude for the favor you do for them.
15. “Whatever I did, it worked out well. And, I’m happy that I can help.”
It might have taken you some time and great effort.
But as this person is happy and healthy, that’s what makes you feel relaxed.
16. “I think I didn’t do any great thing like you do for me.”
This way you appreciate this person for what they have been doing for you for so long.

You want to do more for them and are always ready for it.
19. “Seriously, you have to thank me for that?”
You can’t believe it and want to make your friend ashamed for thanking you.
When a friend thanks you for something, this is a sarcastic but right response to share.
