baby shower thank you card

When friends and family gather together to shower you with love and support over the arrival of a new baby, the gratitude you feel may prove overwhelming. What better way to thank your baby shower attendees than with a card? At PAPYRUS we’ve got you covered with ideas for what to write in a baby shower thank you card.

Motherhood itself—whether it’s your first child or your third—is tiring and overwhelming. Your loved ones came together to throw you a baby shower, and now you want to acknowledge that in some way. Sure, you have a thousand other things to do before delivery—from packing your hospital bag to making sure your nursery is ready—which is why PAPYRUS offers boxes of whimsical baby shower thank you notes for the occasion.

Here are a few tips and templates to ignite some inspiration for your baby shower thank you card wording:

  • Avoid generic words and phrases.
  • Express your thanks with personal touches.
  • Use lovely words that describe what the gift means to you.
  • Acknowledge the relationship you have with the gift recipient.

Still stuck? Here are some sample ideas for what to write in a baby shower thank you card.

Sample 1

Dear______

Thank you for the incredibly thoughtful gift card and set of bottles. Both will definitely come in handy in the very near future. I was so touched that you took time out of your day to attend my shower, and I look forward to getting to visit with you after the baby is born as well.

Love,

Dear______

I was so excited to receive the beautiful set of muslin swaddling blankets. They’re lightweight enough to swaddle the baby in the summer, and I know how often you used those with your own babies. Thanks so much for being part of my shower and for being such a wonderful friend.

Hugs,

I was so touched that you crocheted that beautiful blanket for my child. Every time we use it, I’ll remember the love and time you put into creating such a wonderful, personal gift. I’m so blessed to have you as part of my life, and I’m honored that you will also be a part of my child’s.

Dear______

I was so surprised to receive a gift from you, all the way from France. I know shipping is pricey, but I can’t thank you enough for the adorable knit booties and the delicious Belgian chocolates you sent. (They didn’t make it into my hospital bag.) Thanks for your friendship! I can’t wait to Skype with you once we get home from the hospital.

Sending you so much love!
