How to express my thanks to my close friends without using thanks/thank you/cheers. I don't wanna be too formal so what would a native speaker say in daily life

Thanks

I know you are looking for different words, but truly, as a native speaker, I would use 'thanks'.  I would say 'thanks' rather than 'thank you' if I was wanting to be informal:

Thanks a lot.

Thanks, man.  (Only with someone you know well.)

Thanks, dude.  (Only with someone you know well.)

Thanks, bro.  (Only with someone you know well.)


You could also say, 'thanks' and add a fist bump or a pat on the back.

I appreciate your kindness.
You're the best friend I've ever had.
My sincere gratitude. 

Hope these help.

Yup I think the most natural way is to say thanks! You can also say something like "you are the best"
