Caroline Allec, a new mom, heads the parenting section at Money Done Right and has some stellar tips!
If efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to sending out your baby shower thank you cards, just use a simple three- or four-sentence template for the majority of your notes.
Sure, you may want to elaborate a bit on the card to your sister or your best friend, but for the majority of guests, a template will work just fine. It’s not like they’re going to compare thank you cards and say, “Aha! They’re all the same!”
If you’re freaking out about using the wrong words, feel free to use the template I used:
Thank you so much for getting us the wonderful [Gift]. I can just picture little [Baby’s Name] using it in a few months! It was so thoughtful of you, and it was just what we wanted. It was great seeing you, and I hope you can meet little [Baby’s Name] soon!
Ask whoever is planning your baby shower to assign somebody to keep track of who gave what when you open up the gifts.
A simple pen and notepad will do, but if you really want to get with the times, have this helper use Google Sheets.
Optional: put this person in charge of making sure you have an updated address for all your guests.
Don’t view writing your thank you cards as some kind of massive chore.
This task is mindless enough that you can get it done while doing something enjoyable such as watching T.V. or listening to music.
Assuming you didn’t invite your whole town, you could probably knock out writing all your thank you cards within a couple of episodes of The Office that you’ve already watched umpteen times.

I had such a great time meeting and interacting with family and friends. The baby shower wouldn’t have been the same without your efforts. 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!
