We will dedicate this article to “Mille mercis” and the other ways to express powerful gratitude, when a simple “Merci” (Thanks) is not enough.
Typically, when you received a huge gift or someone did something amazing for you. So much that a simple “Thank you” would sound almost insulting!

Imagine someone offers you an amazing gift and your heart is full of gratitude. Then instead of a classic “Merci.” you can use “Mille mercis !” (A thousand thanks!) or any other variations you will find in the next section.
All of them are fine with formal contexts, so you can use them in a professional environment too.
