Still need a baby shower gift?
Baby showers are special occasions as friends and relatives gather to wish a new mother or new parents the best as they start to take on one of life's most.
Pregnancy is entirely an adventure in its class. It is that period in a woman’s life when she realizes that life is really filled with ups and downs – the ups of baby’s joyful kicking, and the downs of mood swings and cravings. So, in order to celebrate the pregnancy nearing its end as the baby prepares itself to be pushed into the world, a baby shower is desperately called for.
In addition to the overwhelming gifts, good food, belly dances and cheers, wow the expectant mother with any of these incredible baby shower wishes below. You may never know how important it is to her until she kisses you on both sides of the cheek, and your lips. Blame it on pregnancy!

35: Very soon, you will no more be called an expectant mother because your baby is officially permitted to start heading out into the world of men. Congratulations in advance, for becoming a nursing mom.
36: You, and your craving for cake! I do hope that you won’t carry a piece into the labor room. That will piss the midwives off really bad. Also, I don’t think you will want your baby nibbling on cake as he cruises out.
37: You are looking all glamorous and excited today. I’m sure you will be almost unrecognizable when your baby begins to aggressively push itself out of your womb. Well, let me wish you safe delivery with a happy face.

39: There is no comprehensive, tailor-made handbook on parenting in the market. Therefore, you’ll have to learn as you practice on your little darling. I wish you all the best as student parents.
40: Don’t be wound up in disciplining your child that you forget to laugh at your mistake and his. Parenthood is actually fun to do.
41: Sleep all you can now. Enjoy each other’s company as much as you can before your baby steps into your lives. I need not tell you that that little thing is an obsessed attention seeker. Congrats in advance, on her arrival.
42: Contrary to popular saying, parenting isn’t scary. Rather, it is the scariest of everything scary. Don’t be afraid though. Your baby will grow fast.
43: Every moment of your life as a mother should be documented in a video. That will afford you the opportunity to remember the days you chased your child around the house with nothing but dishevelled hair.
44: I am eager to meet your baby because I have one or two questions to ask him. I think I should start with, “What gave you the impetus to kick your mother on the belly?”
45: To the soon-to-be parents, may stress and hard work in training your child never give you premature wrinkles. You’ll have to take everything easy because you’re in no competition with any family.
46: I wish above all things, that you will reserve the cakes and drinks we had today so that we will have something to eat on that day after congratulating you on the arrival of your baby.
47: Bear in mind that boys are different than girls so, you will have to prepare yourself for surprises in their raising. Please, don’t forget to lock your door behind when you feel the urge to cry as a parent.

And don't forget to be thankful. I wish you a successful birthing experience. 4: This is me, wishing my bosom friend a safe delivery of her baby.
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.
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.
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.
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.
All your wonderful friends & family helped celebrate your new arrival. Let us help find the right baby shower thank you card wording to express your gratitude!.
