What to Write in a Baby Shower Card + 49 Messages She'll appreciate these funny baby shower messages, even if the kiddo is sitting on her.

Messages to Write in a Baby Shower Card

So, you got an invitation to a baby shower. You have gone through the registry, ordered the gift and it will be at your front door within a matter of days.

You have mapped out the address, you know what time you need to be there, and you’re prepared to wear the clothespin they will hand you at the door for that famous, “don’t say the word baby” game.

Now all you need to do is wait for the gift, so you can get it wrapped up neatly in that shiny wrapping paper showing off those colorful teddy bears, and you will be sure to carefully hook that rattle to the ribbon.

Of course, there is one more thing you will need to do; you will need to write a message inside the baby shower card and the envelope will need to be addressed properly, because, of course, you wouldn’t want Aunt Mary to make her card look better than yours.

Gee, you didn’t realize there were so many preparations for a baby shower, but you wouldn’t want to be the one who shows up empty handed, eats all the food, and wins all the prizes, would you?

So, with all this in mind, let’s talk a little about baby shower etiquette.

Choosing the Gift

When you received your invitation the baby registry was attached, after all, how would you have known what to buy, but let’s talk about what you would have done if the bubbly mom-to-be didn’t have a registry.

In that case, you would want to know if a boy or girl is on the way. If Mom doesn’t know the sex of the baby, that’s okay too because you can find a lot of gender neutral gifts that will work just fine.

Ask what the theme of the nursery is going to be and find out what they really need. Try and pick a gift that is more practical and something that Mom can use several of is a good idea too.

Something like crib sheets and blankets is things Mom will need plenty of, so go ahead and consider that if you want.

Diapers, wipes, onesies, socks, newborn hats, and bibs are also great gifts to think about. Also, keep in mind that Mom and Dad will be happy with a supply of gas drops and pain relievers at 2 am.

Special keepsakes are always welcome along with something a little special for Mom to enjoy while she enjoys the last few nights of rest in the hospital.

Addressing the Envelope

Now you need to decide if you’re going to choose a card with an envelope, or should you opt for one of those tiny, impersonal cards that come with gift bags, or those that you find attached to a flower bouquet.

If you want to send out a thoughtful message to the mom-to-be, it would be a nice gesture to get a standard sized card and include a special message, more about that in a minute, but let’s talk about the envelope.

Don’t put all your time into that perfect wrapping and special message only to attach a blank envelope to the package; you need to address it to someone, but to whom?

You can put Mom’s name on the envelope, unless of course, the baby shower is for Dad too, in that case, you will want to be sure you address both Mom and Dad’s name on the envelope.

If you know the baby’s name you could put that on the envelope, or you could be cutesy and put the baby’s name followed by Mom and Dad because once you have a child, you rarely ever have a first name anymore. If you’re the parent of an older child, you probably understand the reference here.

Writing a Message Inside the Card

Finally, you will want to write a special message inside the card for the expectant parents to enjoy, but what should you say to them?

If you’re a close family member you will probably have it in your mind to write a special message for them that will help and encourage them through this new experience of parenthood.

If the Mom-to-be is your best friend then you probably have some inside jokes that you want to share with her, but keep in mind, some people could get offended, so be careful if someone other than Mom is reading the cards.

Keep in mind that Mom isn’t the only one who will be blessed with the presence of the new baby, the little one will be a blessing for the entire family, so keep siblings, and Dad in mind too when writing your special message.

No matter what you decide to write, Mom will like the fact that you took the time to make it personal and from your heart.

If you are at a loss for what to write, you will appreciate the following list of messages to write in a baby shower card.

From this list, you can choose from categories, and you can take the words and make them your own by adding your own thoughts into the phrases.

Baby Shower eCards & Greeting Cards

wishes card for baby shower

Whenever my kids let me pick the books I read to them at bedtime, a few stand out above the rest. There's the melodic board book On the Night You Were Born, the ridiculously funny Dragons Love Tacos, and a pop-up alphabet book about animals for which I can never remember the actual title. I love these three very different books for very different reasons, but they all have one meaningful thing in common: they've all got a heartfelt, handwritten inscription on the front inside cover from the loved ones who gave them to us. Every time I open one of these books, I feel a connection to my support group — whether a great-aunt, a close friend, or my parents' neighbors — and am reminded of how much they care.

I wish more of my children's books had such sweet words inside. But too late did I discover the new baby shower trend that tasks the entire invite list with building up a baby's library in such a sentimental way.

Recently, more and more baby shower hosts have asked guests to reconsider spending a few bucks on a Hallmark greeting card that will likely be recycled at party's end or, at best, tucked away in a memento box that goes unopened for years. Instead, they are asking friends and family to bring a baby book that they've signed, ideally alongside a heartfelt inscription.

Many invitations now even include a short poem prompting this gift idea:

Personally, I love the concept. Not only is it highly personal — guests can purchase their most beloved childhood book or a story that has a message they value (ahem, Dr. Seuss's Oh, the Places You'll Go!) — but it allows those sweet well wishes to remain accessible for years of constant viewing.

Sure, some people might consider it bad etiquette to make such a specific mandate, likely one that is in addition to a gift off their registry, but with most greeting cards costing $4 to $7, it's not so ridiculous to instead spend that on a similarly priced copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar or Goodnight Moon. Plus, gently used books can be found for pennies. And who doesn't have that in-law who'd come with a handmade scrapbook filled with family photos?

What do you think? Do you like the idea of skipping the greeting card or do you prefer not being forced into a specific gift idea?
