It’s time to write each baby shower thank you note, but with so much on your mind the words may be harder to come by. Here are some ideas to make writing your shower thank you cards a snap.
A Few Quick Etiquette and Wording Tips
o Hand write your thank you notes. Avoid writing more than four thank you notes at a time to keep your handwriting neat.
o Always mention the specific gift in your thank yous.
o Use the word “you” more than the word “I” to emphasize your gratitude for your friends and loved ones.
o The host of the baby shower often receives a thank you gift such as candy, a picture frame, or an engraved bracelet or locket.
o Send your baby shower thank you notes within two weeks of the shower in the actual mail. If you’re running late, remember, a late thank you card is better than no thank you at all.
Use a poem.
Write your own original poem or use a famous poem from literature to express your thanks. Some people like to write a poem from the baby’s point of view or just a short, poem to say thank you. Here a baby shower thank you poem that I wrote. You can use it as a guide or copy into your card: (for your personal non-commercial use only)
I wanted to say thank you.
Daddy says thank you, too.
Baby will say thanks I’m sure
right around when she turns two.
Try a famous quote.
Look up thank you quotes online or in a book of quotations, and add a line of your own. Here is an example:
The quote: “Every gift from a friend is a wish for your happiness.” ~ Richard Bach
Then you add: Thank you for the lovely insert gift, and your wishes of happiness for our growing family.

It will definitely come in handy.

You always pick the cutest gifts.
You are a dear and thoughtful friend.
Then close the letter with, “Thanks again.” Sign your letter, “Love” “Sincerely,” “Warm Regards,” and your signature.
Now you have a variety of ways to share your gratitude with your generous friends. Don’t forget. If you’re fingers are swollen, you can always have Daddy help you. Congratulations on your growing family!
