Starting Your Baby Shower Cards

So, how do you start your card and who do you address it to? 

  • The name you write inside the card should be the same as on the outer envelope of your card.
  • If it is a girl's shower only, the shower card is addressed to the mother of the baby. 
  • Write both parents' names if it is a couples shower or if you are good friends with the father as well. Alternatively: For the Parents-to-Be.
  • Write 'Dear (mother's first name)' / Dear (mother's and father's first name) inside the card if you are close to the expectant mother / parents.

  • If the baby shower is formal write the mother's (and  father's) proper name, also if you only know the expectant mother / father in a professional setting. You can also write for example'to the Smith family'.
  • You can also address your card to the baby. All the better if you already know the baby's name. Alternatively write 'To the new arrival', 'To the Smith baby', 'To the little  pea'.

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.

Baby Shower Wishes and Congratulations

baby shower wishes for a friend

Being a baby shower guest sounds like easy business, right? Simply RSVP on time, pick a gift from the registry, wear something nice, play the Purse Game, eat some cake and your guest duties are done.

Not so fast. There’s still the matter of baby shower wishes. What to write in a baby shower card seems easy enough, but when it’s time to put pen to paper, you may find you don’t know the right baby shower messages to include.

Maybe you don’t know the mama that well, or maybe you know her so well that wrapping up the creation of life into a sentence is just too daunting a task. Before you decide to ditch the baby shower card messages in exchange for a more simple “To:” and “From:” generic gift tag, try a few lines from our long list of ideas of what to write in a baby shower card.

Baby Shower Card Etiquette

You wouldn’t think you’d need advice from Miss Manners regarding what to write in a baby shower card, but following a few easy baby shower card etiquette rules will ensure you won’t make a baby or mommy-to-be faux pas.

  • To whom it may concern: Even though baby showers have traditionally been ladies-only affairs, modern times mean that the celebrations are changing. The invitation may give you clues as to whom your baby shower messages should be addressed. If it doesn’t, inquire with the hostess when you RSVP. Or, play it safe and address your baby shower wishes to the “New Parents.”
  • Speak from the heart. While we’ve included plenty of great baby shower wishes to select from below, if you want your baby shower messages to be your own, use words from the heart.
  • Open to the public. If the mama is your best friend or sibling, you may have plenty of inside jokes. However, since you won’t know if she—or a gift assistant—will be reading the card messages aloud, skip any wishes for baby shower that might be inappropriate or too easily taken out of context.
  • Don’t forget baby. Mom and dad may be the center of attention at the shower, but don’t forget baby! In addition to baby shower wishes for the parents-to-be, say something sweet meant for the wee one entering the world.
  • K.I.S.S. When writer’s block sets in, K.I.S.S it. That is: “keep it simple, stupid.” After all, sometimes short and sweet is just right.
  • Where’s the love? Signing off the card with “love” may be sincere and heartfelt for someone who’s close to you. However, if the parents-to-be are coworkers or someone you’ve known for just a short while, consider one of the closers below for your baby shower wishes.
    • Best,
    • Your friend,
    • Blessings to you,
    • Happiness to you and your new family,
    • Happy baby!
    • Over the moon with excitement,
    • Joy to you,
    • XOXO!
    • Hugs and cuddles to your little one to come,

Some baby showers do away with disposable greeting cards and request guests to instead write their baby shower wishes inside the cover of a beloved children’s book. That can be a lot of pressure given your baby book messages may live on that child’s bookshelf for years to come, whereas a card can just end up in the trash. The good news is that so many wonderful baby and kids’ books can help inspire what to write in a baby shower card. Here are a few of our reads for little ones and the baby book messages to match.

  1. The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams: Always know that you are loved, baby. And what makes anything real is love.
  2. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein: A generous heart is always beautiful, especially to those in need. May you always be kind to others as well as to yourself, little one.
  3. Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak: Adventure is waiting all around you, baby! “Let the wild rumpus start!”
  4. The House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne: May you find friends all through your life as wonderful and special as those living in the Hundred Acre Wood.
  5. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle: I can’t wait to watch you grow and become your very own version of a beautiful butterfly.
  6. Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown: Goodnight, sweet baby. I wish you sleepy nights filled with happy dreams to chase when you wake in the morning.

Baby Shower Wishes for Girl

If the parents-to-be are waiting for delivery day to find out the sex of the baby, baby shower wishes have to stay more generic. But when thinking about what to write in a baby shower card, if you know a new little girl is about to enter the world, crank up “Pretty in Pink” and include these sweet baby shower messages for a baby girl.

  1. As parents, you may wish to give your little girl the sun, the moon and the stars. My wish for you is to see yourself when you look at her through loving eyes.
  2. Sugar, spice and everything nice; this is now what your new family’s made of.
  3. We’re tickled pink to meet your new baby girl. Good health to you through the remainder of your pregnancy, and best wishes to you on delivery day.
  4. You selfies are about to get 100 percent sweeter! Congrats on your mini-me-to-be!
  5. Excited to meet the new little lady in your life. May she be as smart, sweet and sassy as her mama!
  6. One minute you’re dressing her in tutus and pink bows, the next you’re buttoning the back of her bridal gown. Enjoy all the little moments; they fly by fast!

Baby Shower Card Messages

baby shower wishes for a friend

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.
