you're very welcome

Hello, everybody. I was wondering if you have an equivalent way in Italian of replying to "Thank you" in this emphatic way. In English, "You're very welcome!" has an added warmth to it, more than just a pro forma response.
I received a brief text message thanking me for a gift, and I would like to send a very brief reply, but I thought "prego" just seems kind of bland.
Any ideas?
Thank you.

    Wait for the natives but what about "Prego. È stato un piacere" or "il piacere è tutto mio"? Would that be appropriate here?

    The dictionary suggests "figurati!" even though I would probably have tried "è stato il mio piacere" and sounded too anglo for the situation. ;-)

    Edit: crossed with rrose.

    Thanks, Ron and Bill. I've just been reminded by a friendly forum member that I asked a similar question a while back, so in the interest of full transparency, here goes: preghissimo

    I think I like the Preeeego! for a text message.
