Ready to Get Started? Before beginning, first settle on a few details. Start by choosing a color scheme for your invitations. Do you want traditional pink for girls or blue for boys? Or do you prefer a gender-neutral color?

When selecting your invitation, consider your baby shower theme. If your shower is a jungle theme, there are plenty of cute critters to choose from. For a travel theme, think airplanes, sailboats, or whimsical hot air balloons. Once you’ve made your selection, it’s time to move on to the wording.

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

  1. Thank you to the host example
  2. Thank you from baby example
  3. Thank you for co-workers
  4. Thank you for those who couldn’t attend

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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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!

Yes, people missed the first party. But they don't have to miss this one!
Include everyone online

Build Your Shower


#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.

#8 Baby Shower Thank You for Attending

Thank you so much for attending my recent baby shower. It was such a pleasure to be surrounded by loving friends who want the best for me and my family! And I can’t wait for you to meet our little one, once she’s safely here in our arms!

Did some people miss the party? You can easily include everyone online!

Build Your Shower

 
#9 Thank You for Unexpected Gift
 
Thank you so much for the diaper bag you sent – it came as such a delightful surprise! I know it will come in very handy once our little one makes her way into the world. I’m so excited for you to meet her soon!

How to Send Free Online Baby Shower Invitations

Send Free Online Baby Shower Invitations

WebBabyShower is an online baby shower website designed specifically to manage virtual baby showers from beginning to end. Just like traditional baby showers, online baby showers require invitations for guests to receive and RSVP. The main difference of online baby showers over traditional baby showers is the opportunity it gives guests to “attend” wherever they are located, making the response to the baby shower an important part of the process.

Whether you are using WebBabyShower to host your virtual baby shower or you are using another online platform, you will need to send online baby shower invitations.

Using WebBaby Shower to Send Online Invitations

If you have purchased a baby shower service on WebBabyShower, you can use the online invitation portion to manage your invitations. This service will allow you to send invitations to guests either by an email address or by a Facebook invitation.

You can customize these invitations to match the theme of the virtual baby shower website. You also have full control over fonts, colors, and images to add to the invitations.

Using Another Platform to Send Online Invitations

If you are hosting an online baby shower on another platform, such as a social media website, you can send online invitations in a couple of different ways.

The first option is sending an invitation through the social media application itself. The social media platform may have an “event” option in the application for you to create an event and add invited guests to access the event. Make sure in the description of the event that you include it is an online virtual baby shower.

The second option is to send an invitation to guests through a free event website service, such as Evite. Evite will allow you to pick a preloaded template to email each guest on the guest list.

The downside to websites like Evite is the limited options you have for customizations. With WebBabyShower, the design of the invitation can be customized, where Evite free invitations are limited in customizations.

First Things First

When sending online baby shower invitations, you will need to gather some preliminary pieces of information before you send an email blast to all your friends and family.

We are going to go through those things to help you know how to successfully send online baby shower invitations.

Information on the Guest-of-Honor

You will need to have information about the mom-to-be and expected new arrival readily available when you create your free online baby shower invitations. Baby shower invitations will tell a guest who is being celebrated, why they are being celebrated, where they are being celebrated, and when they are being celebrated.

Include as many details as possible on the invitation, or as many details as the mom-to-be will allow on the invitation, to tell guests what celebration they are invited to. These details typically include the name of the baby-to-be, expected due date, date of the online baby shower, how to access the baby shower, and registry information. Make sure the invitation clearly states the baby shower is an online virtual baby shower.

If you are not using WebBabyShower to host the virtual baby shower, you will need to include registry information on the invitation. Otherwise, guests can access registry information directly from the baby shower website on WebBabyShower.

Gather Guest Information

Whether you are using a free invitation service or the included invitation service though WebBabyShower, you will need to gather the email addresses or social media accounts of all prospective guests. This information is how you will send the free online baby shower invitations to the guests.

Built directly into WebBabyShower dashboard is an email tracking feature. This feature allows you to see which guest has not opened their emailed invitation. This allows you to resend the email or contact the guest directly to ask them to open and accept the emailed invitation.

Some Takeaways When Sending Free Online Baby Shower Invitations

Keep the mom-to-be in mind when designing the free online invitations. If there is a design, color scheme, or theme she requests to use, find a website that will provide the desired design.

Try to use both email addresses and social media platforms when communicating with guests. Some guests may be more prone to checking emails, while others may be more frequently on social media. If you know a guest is more likely to check a social media message than an email, communicate through social media with these guests.

Make sure you gather as much information about the mom and baby as possible when you send the invitations. Make sure that the invitation clearly explains that the invitation is online only. Include information about the gift registries, as this will be the most important piece of information on the invitation.
