You’re Welcome?

You offer something to someone. They respond with a “thank you”. What do you say?

In German we would say “bitte”, “bitte sehr”, “keine Ursache”, “aber gerne” or “gern geschehen”. And in English?

You could say “No problem”, but it’s not a very positive message.

What about?:

You’re welcome.
You’re very welcome.
My pleasure.
I’m pleased you like it.
Always happy to help.
Thank you.
