Accepting Compliments and Congratulations

If someone has just given you a compliment, you should accept it gracefully and with a smile on your face.
You can accept a compliment with several different expressions:

    Thanks. / Thank you. It's very nice of you to say so. / I'm glad you think so. / A: I really like your dress. B: Thank you. It's nice, isn't it? / A: That's a nice hat. B: Thank you. Have you not seen it before? I've had it for years.



==============================================
  It seems that in some contexts you could use " I think you are being very generous" (a bit formal), "I am really flattered"/"I'm flattered." or "You're flattering me."

   Altough, "I am flattered" may suggest that you are humble about a just given cumpliment.


   'Thank you, that's very flattering' would go well with a smile, I think.
=============================

    The answer had been given already, by saying  "it is kind of you" or by thanking you won´t ever be wrong.

     Anyway these tips perhaps could come in handy in other contexts (involving cumpliments).

---------------------------------
     Maybe if somebody should somebody say I am handsome, I might ask "are you sure? he he"
