Baby shower gifts and host thank you note wording examples

Baby showers are a blessing! Usually friends and family enjoy giving gifts at the shower. And the shower host probably spent a lot of time planning and setting up the shower.

In addition to thanking people for the gifts, remember to thank the hostess and/or people who brought food. Following the tips, there were be two sections of sample notes. Thank you notes for baby shower gifts and thank you wording for the host.

Tips for Baby Shower thank you notes:

Make a list. If you are reading this before your shower, I recommend downloading and printing the Gift List Tracker and taking it with you to the shower. While you open the gifts, a friend can record each gift and whom it was from.

Really make a list. Even if your shower only has a handful of guests, don’t trust yourself to remember who gave each gift (do you remember what you had for lunch 3 days ago)? To be safe make a list just in case you don’t have time to write the notes right after the shower. Then you will have a list to refer to later on when you have time to write the notes.

Be prompt when possible. Try to write the notes before the baby or babies arrive. If that didn’t happen it’s okay if you take a while (months) to send out the thank-you notes. People generally understand that parents are very busy and tired having new babies at home.

Don’t ask people to address their own thank you note envelope at the shower. However, if having people address envelopes will mean you will more likely to write the thank-you notes then, go for it and don’t feel bad if people are upset about it.

The Best Baby Shower Wording Ideas For Thank You Cards

It takes a special talent for writing clever, heart-felt thank you cards. I usually sit down to write one, and am suddenly at a loss for words.

Over the years, I have come up with some tricks for easily writing sentimental thank you cards.

Below are some easy tips for writing amazing thank you cards that guests will appreciate:

  • You don't want to come across as being fake or scripted - like you have said the same thank you message in every thank you card you have written. "Thank you for the baby shower gift, the baby and I will love it!"

  • When writing your cards, always include a personal message that is specifically for that person. Be sure to mention the gift they gave you. Ex: "Thank you for the beautiful quilt, it reminds me of the one you made me when I was a little girl." This lets the person know that you remember exactly what they got you, and you truly are thankful for their gift.

  • In addition to referencing what the gift was, you can also include how you plan to use it - if applicable. 

  • Never use a pre-written card where you fill in the blanks. This is non-personal and kind of tacky.

  • How to say thank you - for a group gift:
    Dear Sharon,
    Thank you very much for the generous baby shower gift from you and all of the girls! I am so lucky to have such supportive girlfriends in my life. It means so much to me, and the gift will definitely be a huge help when the baby arrives.

Tips on Writing Baby Shower Thank You Notes

Highly Appreciated Baby Shower Thank You Note Wordings

Sending thank you notes is the appropriate way to show your gratitude to your guests for their presence and gifts. In this article, you will find examples of wordings that can be used while making baby shower thank you notes at home.
Last Updated: Feb 23, 2018
Now that the baby shower is over, you need to send thank you cards to your friends and guests. It is a nice gesture to show your appreciation. The cards are usually send as early as possible, meaning 3-4 days after the party. If not possible, remember that it is better to have a delayed thank you note rather than no note at all.

There are certain etiquette that have to be followed when writing baby shower thank you notes.
- It is recommended to write thank you cards personally, as hand-written notes mean a lot more than printed ones. Typed letters also lack the personal touch.

- Always write the person's name on the note.
- The type of gift received (gift cards, cash, articles) is usually mentioned in the card. In cases where you have forgotten what gift came from the guest, you can merely thank the guest for the gift without mentioning the type of the gift in detail.

- You should try to avoid making your thank you notes generic and clinical. Make sure that every note sounds personal and heartfelt.

Thank You Card for Baby Shower Hostess

thanks for the baby shower

Unlike many age-old traditions, a baby shower serves a practical – nay, essential – purpose. It helps the parents-to-be acquire some of the many items they need for the new arrival. This shower of gifts is crucial when you consider the sheer amount of stuff required to care for a newborn (not to mention all those cute optional baby things that are practically irresistible).

None of this is news to you if you’ve recently been on the receiving end of a baby shower. If that’s you, you’re probably overflowing with gratitude for the gifts given by friends, coworkers, and/or family members. Now it’s time to show it by saying thank you.

There are a couple of types of baby shower thank you message you can send. One is a message to someone who has given you a gift, which is a must. The other is a message thanking everyone who attended, which is optional but a pretty nice thing to do. Whichever type of message you’re pondering, this article can help you find the perfect baby shower thank you wording.

Individual Thank You to Gift Giver

As any etiquette nag will tell you, a message thanking someone for a gift should be personalized. In other words, it should 1) be sent to each person individually, 2) thank the person by name, 3) mention the specific gift that person gave, and 4) possibly even say why the gift is valuable or meaningful to you. Here are a handful of examples to illustrate.

  • Andrea, I’m so happy you were able to come to my baby shower! The baby bib you gave us is awesome. I’m sure baby will enjoy spitting up on it many times in the coming years. Thanks!
  • Tom and Ellen, thanks so much for the baby monitor! That was one of the first things we registered for, and we’re so glad we can cross it off our list.
  • Jenny, thank you for the baby blanket. It’s so soft, I’m sure baby is going to love it. The fact that you made it yourself blows us away, and makes it all the more special. Again, thanks!
  • Melanie and Juan, thanks for sending us the great baby bouncer. I’m looking forward to seeing baby bounce in it, instead of bouncing around in my belly!
  • Hey Betsy, thanks for coming to my baby shower. The onesie you gave us is hilarious – you know me too well! I’ll be sure to send you a picture of the little guy in it when he’s out of the womb.

To All

Here are some thank you messages to send out to everyone who attended the shower. Again, for people who gave gifts, a mass email or Facebook post is no substitute for individual thank you’s. These messages are more about thanking people for their attendance immediately after the shower.

Note: Messages like these are a good place to recognize the person who organized the baby shower. However, it’s also good form to thank the organizer individually.

  • Thanks to everyone who came to my baby shower yesterday, as well as those who sent gifts. We got so many items we needed! Extra special thanks to Wendy for hosting. You guys really are the best!
  • I want to send a HUGE thank you to everyone who came to my baby shower on Saturday! Also, thank you to everyone who sent gifts and well wishes. And of course, thank you to Michelle for organizing and hosting. The baby supplies we received are very much appreciated, and will definitely be put to good use. Again, thank you everyone!
  • Thanks to everyone who came to my surprise baby shower on Saturday! You got me! Who would have thought you all could keep a secret like that? We truly got showered with items from our registry. We’re so grateful for all those gifts, but more than that, for having amazing friends like you!

For Coworkers

Here are a couple of thank you messages for coworkers following an office baby shower.

  • Just want to send a quick thank you to everyone who came to my baby shower on Friday. Thanks to your generosity, we are stocked up on diapers for… well, probably not as long as we think! But still, we’re so grateful! A special thanks to Ellen for organizing things. I’m so lucky to have coworkers like you!
  • Just want to make sure everyone knows how much I appreciate the baby shower last week. That was so much fun, and I can’t tell you how grateful Rick and I are for all the amazing gifts. I couldn’t ask for better coworkers than you. A special thank you to Jen for organizing, and to company for allowing us to use the conference room. Again, thank you all!

If you want to give someone (the host, for example) a special thank you, consider sending a token gift. One idea is to send candy with a quirky message attached.

Thank you message for baby shower who have filled your heart with the best of wishes, gifts, also attending or hosting your baby shower party.
