A baby shower is such a joyous occasion. After the party, your new little one has received tons of new toys, clothing, and equipment to help make their transition into the world a little easier. The end of the celebration also means that it’s time to write a thank-you card to all the people who attended your baby shower, so they know how much you appreciated their gifts.
Sending a thank you card for your baby shower gifts is like any other thank you card. You want to convey your gratitude, do it in a timely manner, and add a personal detail to make your guest enjoy your card. However, finding the words to say can feel challenging. If you’re unsure what to say, we’ve got you covered. We have many more free resources to help with planning a baby shower.
When Do You Send Baby Shower Thank You Notes?
You’ll want to send out your thank-you notes within two weeks of your baby shower. This allows you to have time to enjoy your gifts while still managing to send out your cards before the baby arrives.
Prepare yourself to write out your thank you cards by deciding in advance how you want to send them. Do you want to mail them digitally or by hand? While digital thank you cards are less expensive and faster, most people appreciate a handwritten card.
Regardless of the method you choose, you’ll want to make sure you have the thank you card designs picked out, along with the list of people who attended and the gift they gave you.

What to Write in A Baby Shower Thank You Card Note?
While it might seem complicated to write out a thank you card note, all you need to do is follow this simple formula.
- Thank you: The first part of your baby shower thank you note should thank the guest for attending your celebration. This part will typically sound the same for every card.
- Reaction: Next, you’ll want to reference the specific present your guest gave you. Did it excite, motivate or inspire you? Make sure to write down how the gift made you feel.
- Appreciation: Let your guests know how much you appreciate them for attending and being a part of your special day. Any type of specific or personal detail will fit nicely in this area.
