Dgreetings offers Cute, gorgeous baby thank you cards.send it to your friends Baby Shower Thank You Messages. Thank you for coming to my baby shower.
The pajamas for [Baby’s name] are adorable! She will be set on pajamas until she grows into the next size. The pink and purple colors are perfect too. Please feel free to stop by for a visit.
I love the Pack and Play! The bassinet has been convenient the past few weeks. [Baby’s name] sleeps in it in our room at night. Also, thank you for putting it together for us! That was a pleasant surprise to come home to from the hospital.
Thank you for the toys for [Baby’s Name]. He will have fun playing with them. The cat themed rattles are cute too. He also seems to enjoy listening to the music from the [toy that plays music].
We are grateful for the high chair! When [Baby’s Name] is big enough to use it, we will slide him right up to our dining table so that he feels included. I love that you found one where the tray can be adjusted with one hand.
The baby outfits for Violet are adorable. She is growing fast, so I will have her wear it often as its one of the cutest outfits that she has received so far. I will send you a picture of her wearing it soon!
The baby blanket is very soft! Thank you for making Jake a baby blanket. He likes to cuddle with it already.
The receiving blankets are being put to use already with the weather being cold. We are keeping little Elwood bundled up. They also double as a burp rag. The baby blue and gray colors are nice too.
Thank you for the diapers and wipes for [Baby’s name] at the diaper party. We are stocked up on diapers for at least a month. The cost can add up, and we are thankful for them!
The Diaper Genie is convenient. Thank you for giving us one. We are using it every day. I underestimated how often babies are changed before having [Baby’s name]. We are learning a lot with a new baby at home!
Thank you for giving us the baby clothes from your daughter as she outgrows them. We appreciate your support as we know you could have sold them at a garage sale or online. We will pay it forward and pass them on to another family when [Baby’s name] is too big for them.
The hand me down baby clothes from your family are a blessing! We didn’t expect to have twins which means we need double of most things. The clothes are in great condition too. You’ll have to share your tips for getting stains out (or avoiding them in the first place!).
Thank you for passing your baby clothes on to us. Baby clothes feel expensive since they outgrow them so fast. We will save them to pass on to another family in need.
The bags of baby clothes are wonderful! And I appreciate that you have organized them by size. It will be neat seeing pictures of my baby and your baby with the same outfit but months apart in grandma’s scrapbook!
Thank you for passing on your baby’s clothes to my baby. I am glad we are friends and can share with each other. [Older child’s name] is having a growth spurt. We will have more clothes for [friend’s child’s name] soon. This clothing swap idea of yours is working out well for both of us!
Thank you for bringing the family [what they brought] after the baby was born. We were quite busy the first few weeks adjusting to having [Baby’s name]. We appreciate your kindness.
All of the food you brought the week Violet was born was fantastic. The lasagna was better than any we have ever had at a restaurant. The egg casserole was perfect to warm up when we had a chance to eat. Thank you for visiting with us too.
Thank you for the wonderful homemade meal last week. I was happy not to have to cook while getting used to having Violet around. The pizza casserole made with zucchini was so tasty and healthy too. Please stop by for a visit anytime and I will have your Pyrex dishes clean and ready for you.
You are excellent at making casseroles! The ham, pineapple, and rice casserole was a huge hit with the entire family. They were worried about they would eat once Violet arrived. Your dish was their favorite of all the food brought to us.
Thank you for organizing the meal delivery while when Violet was born. Also, the taco chicken soup was delicious. And I appreciate the extra effort of the ripe avocados since they are out of season right now.
Thank you for the beautiful flowers to help us celebrate the birth of [Baby’s name]. We have taken a picture of them for the scrapbook! Also, thank you for coming to visit us at the hospital. We are excited to be new parents!
The flowers you sent to the hospital are lovely. The arrangement was lovely, and as you know, purple tulips are my favorite. We enjoyed having the flowers in the room during our stay and at home on the counter. Come see us soon!
We appreciate the flowers to help us welcome [baby's] name into the world. They helped the day feel even more special. Thank you for thinking of us!
Thank you for the beautiful daisies when [Baby’s name] was born. They were delightful to look at while learning to nurse at the hospital. We are thankful that you will be part of [Baby’s name]'s life as she grows.
We are still enjoying the pink carnations that you sent after Violet and I came home from the hospital. They look great on the counter. Thank you for sending them when we announced Violet's birth. I can hardly believe that she will be a month old in a few days.
I hope these examples helped you with your baby gift thank you notes!
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.
A baby shower is one of the first celebrations to happen for the anticipated arrival of a new little one. Filled with games, fun, gifts, and delight; hosting a shower requires no shortage of time and effort.

Here are some great tips on how to write baby shower thank you notes. By including some statements of appreciation for the shower gift with a sincere closing sentence is just one way to show thanks to your guests.
Believe it or not, I love writing thank you cards! Ok I know it sounds crazy.. but it gives me a chance to express how much I appreciate everything that my family and friends have done. After my baby shower, it was even more special because I was able to thank them for the love they showered on my growing family.
But sometimes it can be hard to think of just the right baby shower thank you card wording that shows the gift giver how much their kindness meant. Check out these tips and wording examples for thank you cards that are sure to delight! We crafted these at WebBabyShower just for you.
If you want to skip ahead to the phrasing examples for each situation:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
#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!
#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!

I've never liked thank you notes. Actually, I used to have zero emotions tied up in them . . . until I started making babies. Now, the sheer thought of those little cards fills me with dread, stress, and guilt.
That's because I'd fallen behind in writing them after my first baby shower and never caught up again. I loved when people brought gifts, of course, but it also meant tacking another item on to my never-ending to-do list. Finding time between diaper changes and nap schedules to write a coherent note of appreciation, locate a stamp, dig up an address, and actually stick it in a mailbox became arduous. I tried my best to get them all out, but some invariably slipped through the cracks. The shame was so consuming that I began quietly letting other new moms know not to return the favor. I'd bring a gift and say, "Please, if you write thank you notes, don't worry about it with this one."
When a blown-up version of that same sentiment took place at the baby shower of mom-to-be Laura Turner, I was intrigued. She took to Twitter to share the shocking thing a guest said in front of the entire room:
At first, I wanted to applaud this mystery woman for offering what we all secretly wish someone did at our own baby showers. What a relief to be off the hook for such a time-consuming task, especially when we're opening up the presents in front of those giving them! But, then, I had a vision of etiquette extraordinaire Emily Post rolling over in her grave, and I could just imagine the disappointed looks on the faces of all the great aunts at my shower if someone stood up and announced that the mom-to-be need not send them a thank you card for the gift they so carefully picked out, paid for, and wrapped.
I'm still torn, and it appears that the rest of us are, too. In response to Laura's tweet, women have chimed in with their own opinions on the matter:

Do you think new moms should be exempt from writing thank you notes?
Yes, they have enough work to do already!
No, it’s rude not to express appreciation.
