How to : Write baby shower thank you cards

right baby shower thank you cards

you had a wonderful baby shower and

received many thoughtful gifts

be sure to show your appreciation by

sending thank-you cards to your guests

as soon as possible

very soon you will be much busier so if

possible try to get those thank you

notes completed before your baby's birth

looking at that stack of blank cards you

may feel a little overwhelmed at the

idea of getting them done

add to that the exhaustion that you've

been feeling from getting so little

sleep either because since the little

bundle of joy arrived

however thank yous are not nearly as

daunting as you might think if you keep

in mind a few basic ideas

take the time to send handwritten

thank-you notes

your guests went to a lot of time and

expense to choose a gift and attend your

shower

a computer-generated both thank you just

won't cut it personalized cards are

important

mentioned a specific gift in each note

simply saying thank you for your

generous gift feels too impersonal

it is much better to say we truly loved

the snowsuit little Daniel will stay

warm and snuggly all winter long

looking for thank-you cards

free cards from vistaprint.com

be sure to use the recipients name in

your grieving

instead of just beginning with the thank

you start with something like dear and

Maggie

also remember to sign each card with

love Jim Julie and Daniel

be sincere

being phony is too easy to spot so find

something nice but truthful to say about

every gift that you received

if you're great and Martha hand-knitted

the most horrible blanket you've ever

seen

you can still thank her in a sincere way

thank her for taking the time to make a

handcrafted item for your baby even if

you don't care for the gift itself her

effort deserves your appreciation

if you received a gift that had special

meaning be sure to share the story with

the giver

it will make their day to know that they

chose the very same book that you loved

as a child or an outfit that reminds you

of one you saw on your spouse in an old

baby picture

in instances like these some

mothers-to-be even write thank-you poems

be sure to thank each attendant for not

only their gift but also for their

presence at your shower

let them know what a pleasure it was for

you to spend time with them

take the time to mention the gratitude

you feel to the people who hosted your

baby shower

planning a party is a lot of work be

sure they know how much it meant to you

finally if your baby has already been

born by the time you mail your thank-you

cards include a photo of your little one

in each card

if your baby hasn't been born yet

keep your addresses organized so that

your friends and family will be easy to

find when you send out baby

announcements

before you know it you'll be all done

sending thank-you notes and your loved

ones will appreciate your good manners

congratulations on your pregnancy and

enjoy your little bundle of joy

quicktips enlist the help of a friend at

your shower to keep track of every gift

and the name of the giver

send thank you cards ASAP your life will

be pretty hectic after your baby is born
