Baby Shower Thank You Card Etiquette

You are most likely to have several guests to write thank you notes for. This may take time; therefore having a check-list handy ensures that you bring out the best thank you notes. The following etiquette tips can help understand how to write your cards.

  • Writer of the card

The mom-to-be will write all the thank you notes. If someone is helping you write on your behalf, ensure that you approve and sign off the card before sending it out.

  • Recipients of the cards

Every person who graced your baby shower must receive a thank you card. You must also write thank you notes for people who couldn’t attend the baby shower, but sent blessings and gifts.

  • Right time to send out the cards

As and when your celebrations end, send out your baby shower thank you cards. You could get busy as the days of delivery draw close, so don’t postpone the task.

  • Show creativity

Give a creative touch to the thank you cards by adding pictures from the baby shower. Your guests will like it.

Baby shower thank you notes are rather simple. To make them unique, you need to personalize them.

Brooke, a blogger and a mother, shares her experience of writing thank you notes for every occasion since childhood, including her baby shower. She says, “I’m still a big fan of handwritten correspondence (even though I don’t practice it all that often), and I liked taking the time to write out my appreciation for people who had taken their time to think of me. I’d ordered cute baby duck stationary from Etsy, and I’d just mailed the last of the thank you notes two days before I went into labor (six days after the shower). It was fun (i).”

Things To Write In A Baby Shower Thank You Note

Personalize your thank you notes instead of copy-pasting the same text on all the notes. Here is how you can write a note.

  1. Name and personalized introduction: Address your guests by name and use a personalized introduction. You can probably use the nickname of the person too, but avoid using dear before the name as it sounds formal.
  1. Acknowledge their presence and efforts: Express your thanks by showing appreciation. For example, you could write, ‘Thanks for spending such a lovely time with me at my baby shower’ or ‘Really appreciate your efforts in getting the baby shower finger food and mama bear cupcakes’.
  1. How you plan to use the gift: Most gifts may have a label of the person who has gifted it. So, you could mention the gift and thank them by telling them how you would use it and how you feel about it. Even if it’s a monetary gift, tell them about how you would use the money.
  1. Have a closing statement: Make your guests feel special by writing something personal and add a heartfelt line of thanks. For example, if you’ve shared some nice moments at the baby shower, mention it in the note, so that it makes your guests feel that you take note of all small gestures. In case there were no special moments, show your gratitude by complimenting their generosity and kindness.

Along with a note, you may also pack a tiny indoor plant or treats like chocolates, popcorn bags, nuts, or cookie boxes.

Your gift is special and close to me, and I will treasure it. In fact, I can’t wait to use it.

I just can’t wait for the baby to meet you.

I Love you!
