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.

Thanks for hosting such a wonderful baby shower. Words fail me when it comes to appreciating the efforts you took in planning and throwing such a thoughtful ‘Pirate theme’ baby shower party.

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!

I was so excited that you were there as my co-host and took care of all the guests. Most of all, I simply loved the swaddling blankets. They’re so light and soft, one which I can use even in the summer. Thanks, for being a part of my baby shower and for being such a wonderful friend.
