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.
