So you had a baby shower and accumulated all the amazing gifts for you and your new baby? It's only an expected reaction to send wedding thank you note.

Baby Shower Thank You Notes - Tips

You’ve undoubtedly already thanked your guests at the shower, but you still need to send handwritten notes.   Baby gift thank you cards should be sent out as soon as possible after the event. Try to get them out within a week or two of the shower, but definitely no more than a month later.  It’s fine to keep your baby gift notes short and sweet, adding a personal touch whenever possible.  You might want to use relevant sayings, poems (see below) or quotes to show your appreciation.

  If a guest came to the shower, first thank them for that. Where relevant, describe specifically how you plan to use a gift that was given, or say what you plan to buy with the money, gift card, or gift certificate.  People want to know that their gift is being used and appreciated.

  Thankster is here to help, not only with automating the writing of your handwritten notes, but also with these templates you can use to get you started with the wording for your notes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Dear [Name],

  Just a few words to say thank you for sharing in our special day.  I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did; the party games were an absolute hoot, weren't they?

  Thank you also for the gorgeous blue outfit - it is adorable. I can't wait for the baby to arrive so he can wear it.”

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Dear [Name],

  It was great to see you at the shower! We had so much fun, didn't we? The baby blanket you gave us is just what we needed. The baby will be so warm and cozy in it when he arrives.

“Dear [Name],

  Thank you for attending my baby shower. I really enjoyed the day and hope you did too. The baby onesie is just so cute and I can't wait for [baby name] to try it on.

  Thanks once again.”

Thanks for Lending a Helping Hand

Simple Phrases:

“Thank you for your love and support for the newest addition to our family.”

“Thank you for all your help with the baby shower.”

“Thanks for the helping hand while I'm with child.”

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To a Group of Helpers:

“Dear [Names],

Baby Gift Thank You Thanks for the Meals:

“Dear [Name],

  I'm almost too full to write but I had to let you know how much we appreciated all the meals you cooked and arranged for us. A new baby is always an adjustment so you can imagine what triplets have done to our household. Thankfully, we did not have to cook for weeks due to you. I can't tell you what a relief it was to know there was a delicious home-cooked dinner waiting for us every night. And on top of the comfort of knowing the food was there, everything you sent was just fantastic. When I get my wits about me, I will be asking for those recipes.

  Thank you again so much!”

Baby Gift Thank You Ideas for an Unknown Gift

  There are a few ways to address this issue without admitting you have forgotten which gift came from your guest. One way is to use a thank you quote or baby shower thank you poem plus an added line or two from you.

  You can use a poem such as the following, which you might want to supplement with a short note:

“I wanted to say thank you.
Daddy says thank you, too.
Baby will say thanks I'm sure
right around when he/she turns two.”

Then add:

“Thank you not only for coming to the shower, but for bringing such a wonderful gift. It was that much more of a special occasion because you were there.”

Alternatively, can use this as wording for a quick note:

“Thank you for your joyous presence and your most generous present. Your friendship and loving wishes for our growing family is the gift I cherish most. Thank you!”

Finally, there is always the option of you or your gift recorder calling the guest and pointing out the oversight.  These things happen to everyone, after all.

Baby Shower Thank You Poems

“Just a card to thank you
And a few words to tell you too
The gift is so appreciated
And more so because it came from you.”

“Thank you for coming to my baby shower
And for the special present you gave
You are so very thoughtful
As was the gift you so lovingly made.”

“Hey, thanks for coming
I had so much fun
Thanks for celebrating
With me and my little one!”

“Thank you for the party!
You really are a treasure
To organize such a great baby shower
That gave me so much pleasure.
Thank you to a wonderful baby shower hostess!”

“The baby shower was fun
The presents were a treat
Thank you so much for coming
You are all so very sweet.
Thank you for coming to my baby shower.”

“Just a little note of thanks
And we would like to say
That the gift you gave us
Brought us so much joy today.”

“Such a wonderful gift you gave us
With a very special touch
It sure means so much to us
So thank you very much.”

“I will never forget your kindness
And your gentle touch
You heartfelt words and sympathy
Meant so very much
Thank you again.”

 “Thanks for the gift
So cute and oh so sweet
Baby will surely love it
For him it will be a treat
Blue, beige, yellow and brown
True colors for a boy
When he plays with his cuddly toy
There will be peace all around.”

Baby Shower Thank You Notes for Co-Workers

“Dear [Co-workers Names],

  I just had to tell you again what a wonderful shower you threw! I had the best time. You are all so sweet to make this event even more special by throwing such a posh party at work.  It meant the world to me.

  And as if that weren't enough, you all chipped in to present me with a far-too-generous gift. I don't even know how to thank you for that. My husband and I will have a lot of fun deciding what to do with the gift card.

  Thank you all so much. I won't forget your kindness!

Regards, “

Baby Shower Thank You Wording: How to Write a Gracious Thank You Note ( With We've all had to write thank you notes, but there's something extra special .

Baby shower gifts and host thank you note wording examples

example of thank you letter for baby shower

 

Believe it or not, I love writing thank you cards! Ok I know it sounds crazy.. but it gives me a chance to express how much I appreciate everything that my family and friends have done. After my baby shower, it was even more special because I was able to thank them for the love they showered on my growing family.

But sometimes it can be hard to think of just the right baby shower thank you card wording that shows the gift giver how much their kindness meant. Check out these tips and wording examples for thank you cards that are sure to delight! We crafted these at WebBabyShower just for you.

If you want to skip ahead to the phrasing examples for each situation:

5 Key Baby Shower Thank You Card Wording General Tips

  1. Make it personal

There are times for one-size-fits-all thank you cards but a baby shower is not one of them. When writing your thank you cards, start by addressing it to the individual you are thanking. Starting with a simple Dear and their name is a no-fail way to make your card personal.

You can also go the extra mile and purchase personalized stationery or thank you cards that match the theme of your shower. There are tons of creative options available at online craftsmen retailers such as Etsy or more traditional stationery available at Papersource, Shutterfly, or your local craft store.

  1. Mention the gift

Another way to make the gift giver feel very special and know that their gift really meant something to you is to tell them how you will use it.

A diaper genie might not be the cutest present you will open, but it will become one of your most appreciated items when baby arrives. Let the person who gifted you one know how much you love the possibility of a stink-free future. Do you love the onesie supporting your favorite sports team? Tell the giver how you plan to take your new baby to a game next season.

Including this personal touch shows the gift giver that you took the time to think about how you will use their gift and that you truly appreciate their thoughtfulness.

  1. Include a photo

If baby has made an early arrival or you had a baby shower at the end of your pregnancy, feel free to include photos of baby using the gift. Not only will they love that you went the extra mile to thank them, they will feel included in your family circle. This is an especially thoughtful gesture for those who may be far away and not able to see baby often.

Guests will likely display your photo in a prominent place where they can smile at your little cutie every time they see it. Photo services such as Shutterfly,Snapfish, or even drugstores like CVS and Walgreens make it easy to have printed photos sent directly to your home.

  1. Make future plans

Guests who attend your baby shower are there to shower you and your new family with love and support. They are probably just as excited to do the same for your new baby. It is nice to mention a future opportunity for your guests to meet your little one in your note.

This can be as specific or general as you feel comfortable with; guests understand the sometimes unpredictable nature of parenthood. They will appreciate the invitation to follow up with you once you settle into your new role and meet the baby.

  1. End on a high note

Just as including a nice personal greeting at the beginning of your note is important, ending with a thoughtful closing can go a long way to help show your appreciation. A common choice for baby shower thank you card wording that is always appropriate is to end with Sincerely and your name.

With Appreciation is nice for thank you cards and strikes the right balance between formal and personal for guests such as co-workers or more distant relatives. Fondly or even Love is personal for close family and friends. Hallmark’s card writers have compiled a list of warm closings to help you end your card just right.

Baby Shower Thank You Card  Etiquette

Who should write the thank you card?

In general, the person receiving the gift should be the one to write the thank you card. But even the most advanced newborn has yet to master the art of the thank you 🙂  The new parents are expected to thank guests, as they are the ones using the gift to care for and nurture their new baby.

If the new parents are experiencing a hardship, such as medical issues following the delivery, it can be appropriate for a close friend or relative to send out thank you cards. Make sure that the new parents are involved, even if it just means mentioning that they appreciate the support and understanding of the gift giver during a difficult time, as well as their gift.

Who should get a special phone call?

It is nice to thank people for extremely generous gifts with a phone call in addition to a thank you card. If a guest gifted you with an expensive gift, such as a high-end stroller or crib, a phone call is a good way to let them know how much you appreciate the gift as well as let them know you received it, if it was sent via mail.

Another instance where a phone call is a nice gesture is when the gift is extremely personal. It is hard to adequately express your thanks in a note for the gift of a family heirloom, such as a baby quilt made by a deceased relative or rocking chair that has been handed down through generations. A phone call will help you make that personal connection with the gift giver.

It should be noted that a thank you phone call does not take the place of a thank you note, which should still be sent to all guests. In Theknot.com’s forum on thank you phone calls, posters overwhelmingly noted the benefits of thank you notes for the convenience of the gift givers and the opportunity to share them with everyone who was a part of the gift.

When to send a virtual thank you

If you have had your baby shower virtually, it may make more sense to thank your guests online. This is especially true when your shower was held over the course of a few days or weeks. Send an email to each guest, just as you would a handwritten note. Virtual thank you notes also make it easier to set up future playdates or get-togethers, as recipients can just reply to put plans in motion.

Consider your audience when choosing the best way to thank your guests. It is okay to send handwritten notes to those who would prefer them and go the email route for guests who are more tech-savvy. It is this attention to detail that shows your guests that you not only appreciate their gift– you also appreciate them and what they bring to both your life and your baby’s.

Creative thank you cards

Think back to the theme of your baby shower when sending your thank you cards. If you had a luau-themed bash, craft thank you cards in the shape of Hawaiian leis. If you had a special character theme, such as a teddy bear or rubber ducky, look for ribbon with similar accents to embellish your cards.

Hand lettering is another popular option. It can take time and practice to master, so make sure you have some extra cards on hand in case you need a few re-dos. Clementine Creative Design has compiled a list of excellent hand lettering tutorials.

Shutterfly also recommends including photos from the shower in your thank you. Guests will love the reminder of the wonderful time they had celebrating. If you had a photo booth set up at the shower, a thank you card is the perfect opportunity to share fun (and funny) photos with guests.

 

7 Great Baby Shower Thank You Card Examples

#1 Thank you to the host

Start your list of thank yous with the person who put it all together– the host! Show them how grateful you are for their kindness and generosity with a heartfelt thank you note. In this case, consider sending a small token of your appreciation such as flowers or a sweet treat that they can enjoy.

Thank you for the love that you showed to me and my new family when you hosted my baby shower. I am so grateful to have you in my life and with me to welcome my new baby very soon.

#2 Thank you from baby

It can feel strange to write a thank you card on behalf of someone who does little more than drool, but it is a good habit to model for your child as they grow up. Guests will get a chuckle from the card they receive from your newborn. Play it up and really get into “character” for a truly personal thank you note.

Thank you for my new outfit–I love it so much that I pooped myself! I made sure that my mom washed it right away so that I could wear it again as soon as possible. All of the other babies at the park thought I was so cool. Thank you again!

#3 Thank you for co-workers

Take your time when writing a thank you note to professional colleagues. If it is illegible, it will make it hard for co-workers to take you seriously when you return to work.

It is also nice to acknowledge your eventual return to work. Even in the most supportive of offices, your co-workers are probably eagerly anticipating your return. Don’t make it an awkward omission in your thank you note. Rather, mention how much you appreciate this time you get to spend with your baby.

Thank you for the baby washcloths and towels for little Ben. So far, he is loving getting baths in the sink and we love to see him all wrapped up afterwards. I love that I get to spend this time bonding with him but am looking forward to seeing everyone back at the office when I return.

#4 Thank you for those who couldn’t attend

You may think you should only thank those who attended your baby shower but it is equally important to thank those who were unable to be there in person. Show that you understand their absence and are looking forward to seeing them at another opportunity.

Thank you for the stroller toys that you sent for Clara. We missed you at the shower but can’t wait to get together soon. Hopefully you will be able to meet Clara soon when she makes her big arrival!

#5 Thank you for a group gift

It is nice to send individual thank you notes to everyone who went in on a group gift. It can get tiring to write out a lot of thank you notes but the effort and thought that each person put into the gift should be acknowledged.

The exception to this is when the group is especially large and shares a space, such as an office, where a thank you note could be displayed. Southern Living recommends using a pen that won’t smudge or bleed. This is especially true when you know the note will get passed among many hands, such as a group gift.

Thank you for the Pack N’Play! It is such a generous gift and one that we will be sure to use often. We appreciate the time that everyone took to arrange such a wonderful gift.

#6 Thank you for a financial gift

The Emily Post Institute recommends including how you intend to use the gift of money when thanking the giver. The same is true of gift cards. If you don’t have anything specific in mind yet, don’t be afraid to let them know you plan to use it on everyday expenses. Any parent knows how diapers, wipes, and baby food adds up!

Thank you for your generous gift for our new baby. We have set up a college savings account for our little guy and are so thrilled to be able to make our first contribution to his future. Harvard, here we come!

#7 Thank you for diapers

As a new parent you will soon be going through more diapers than you ever imagined. That’s probably why they are such a popular baby shower gift– you can never have too many! Don’t be afraid to add a little humor when thanking someone for diapers. After all, there’s no getting away from the eventual contents they will hold!

Thank you for the diapers! We have heard from other parents how reliant we will be on them very, very soon. If you would like to come give us a “tutorial” on how to use them after our baby arrives, feel free!

Did you enjoy learning all about baby shower thank you notes and how to write them? You will love sharing your appreciation with your family and friends through thank you cards even more. With these ideas and your personal touch, they are sure to love receiving your gratitude as well.

Baby Shower Thank You Cards: When to Send and What to Say

example of thank you letter for baby shower

Thank you notes are appropriate after many occasions and a baby shower is no exception. There are a variety of aspects that go into executing a successful shower. Between planning the food, prizes and decorations, one thing that’s certain is that your hostess has her hands full. Your attendees also took the time out of their day to shower you with love, cute baby shower wishes, gifts, advice and support. Although you’ve probably thanked each one of them in person and even opened gifts in front of those you’ve received them from, it is still traditionally expected to send your appreciation through a thank you card.

With a handful of guests ranging from close friends to acquaintances, you’ll have a bunch of thank you messages to write. This can make it difficult to craft each and every thank you card to feel one-of-a-kind. Assure that you’re not sounding the same in each one of your notes and make a lasting impression with these baby shower thank you card wording ideas and proper etiquette tips.

Follow our easy template for what to write in a baby shower thank you card below to create a unique message for your guests or jump to a specific section:

What to Write in a Baby Shower Thank You Card?

As you sit down to write your baby shower thank you cards keep in mind that personalization is key. Tailor each card to the gifts you received and select your words to reflect your relationship with the attendee. It may not be realistic to have a completely different message for each guest but, by keeping a few guidelines in mind and following our template, you’ll be able to easily execute a specially crafted message. Use our six steps for what to write in a baby shower thank you card below to show your gratitude and warm the hearts of your baby shower attendees:

  1. Use a personalized introduction and address each guest by name. Since your baby shower is a very personal occasion, start your thank you cards off on a personal note and write the guest’s first name. For a cute touch, you can also use a nickname. If you’re going to use a salutation before the name, avoid  ‘Dear’ as it reflects more of a formal tone.
  2. Express your thanks with a sentiment that shows your appreciation like “Thank you!” It’s not only a sign of respect, but expressing gratitude makes everyone involved feel good. Make a conscious effort to include these words in your greeting.
  3. Mention the gifts and how you plan to use them. Personalize each card specific to the gifts you received. Your baby shower host should have a list of each gift you opened and who it was from. Use this list to craft your baby shower thank you notes and select words that reiterate your excitement for the present and how you and baby will be putting it to use.
  4. Write something personal that will make your guests feel as special as you did on your big day. For this part of your thank you message, think about your relationship with the guest you are writing to. This is where you can add an extra special thank you for those guests who traveled far to be at the shower or for the extra generous gifts you may have received. If a guest was not able to make it to the shower, but sent a gift in their place, you can use this area of the thank you note to mention how much you missed having them there with you on your big day. Go unscripted and write from the heart.
  5. Wrap up your thank you message with a forward looking statement. Signal that your message is coming to an end and reiterate your appreciation to your attendee for making your baby shower a day that you will never forget.
  6. Sign off with a warm closing. Leave your guests off on the same note as you started and include a warm sign off.

While you’re crafting your cards, surrounded by a lifetime supply of diapers and adorable onesies, remember that your guests are not going to be comparing the thank you notes they receive. Also remember, that no one likes to get a generic thank you card message. Use our template to find the perfect balance between personalization and time saving techniques. Saying thanks just got a whole lot cuter!
