Baby shower thank you card wording

Two women hugging with baby shower thank you cards edited around them.

First of all, congratulations on the little one and on enjoying a wonderful baby shower! Now that the shower is over, it's time to reflect on the people who made your baby shower extra special and tell them how important their presence was to you.

 

One way to express gratitude to your guests is to send them a thoughtful thank you card. Try to send your thank you cards out in a timely manner (BTW, if you send thank you eCards via Evite, you can save yourself a trip to the post office and send instantly). Ideally, thank you cards should be sent out within two weeks of the baby shower, though if you need more time, everyone will understand that you have a lot of other things to do! 


But what do you say in a thank you for a baby shower? Here are some baby shower thank you wording ideas to help you craft the perfect message to your family, friends and the host of your special day.

Start with an affectionate greeting 

Address each guest by name and thank them for their presence at the shower. You can say something like, "Dear Amelia, Thank you so much for coming to my baby shower! It was wonderful to see you, and I'm so grateful that you were able to be a part of this special occasion."

Mention the gift (if relevant)

Did your guest bring a gift, send you a gift card or donate to your baby fund? This is where you'll want to mention the generous gift your guest gave you. What to write inside of a thank you card for a baby shower gift? Be specific and mention the item by name along with a note of gratitude. For example, "Thank you so much for the adorable baby booties, bibs and bodysuits. They are so precious and I can't wait to see my little one wear them!"


Express your appreciation

After thanking your guest for their baby shower gift, take a moment to express your appreciation for their presence at the baby shower. Let them know how much their support means to you and how thankful you are to have them in your life. For example, "Your support means the world to me, and I'm so thankful to have you in my life."


Look to the future

As you finish your thank you card, take a moment to speak about what's to come once the baby arrives. Let your guest know how excited you are to have them be a part of your baby's life and how much you're looking forward to the adventures ahead. For example, "I'm so excited and can’t wait for you to meet my little one and be a part of our journey together. Thank you again for the love and support you’ve shown to our growing family."


Customize your message even further

While these tips provide a solid foundation, it's important to thank each guest in a way that shows you value your individual relationship with them and what you appreciate about them. Personalizing your message will make it more meaningful and memorable for the recipient. For example, "Candidly sharing your own parenthood experience with me offered more guidance than most of the books I read."


Add an extra personal touch

You could opt for one of Evite's photo thank you eCards and include a photo from the baby shower, or even design your own thank you eCard with an easy-to-use template.


Don’t forget to write an extra special thank you to your host

While everyone at your baby shower made your celebration one for the books, your baby shower host or hostess really went above and beyond to make it all happen! Some baby shower host wordings to consider adding to your thank yous:

  • Thank you so much for bringing everyone together to celebrate our new baby!
  • I can’t thank you enough for making me and my little one feel so loved at the baby shower.
  • Everything you did to make the baby shower special, from the decor to the games to the food, is truly appreciated.
  • I couldn’t have asked for a better or more thoughtful host for the baby shower! Thank you again for everything.

Bonus: Add a nod to your shower's theme

A cute way to keep the vibe of your baby shower going is by adding a little wordplay to your card that ties it back to the party's theme. For example:


  • You're such a star! (Celestial theme)
  • You're the extra ray of sunshine I needed (Sunshine/Rainbow Baby shower theme)
  • I can bear-ly begin to thank you (Woodland/Teddy Bear theme)
  • You're an unbe-leaf-ably amazing friend (Floral/Greenery theme)
  • Thanks a bunch (Floral/Bouquet theme)
  • Allow me to be a little corny right now (Unicorn theme)
  • You're truly dino-mite (Dinosaur theme)


See, writing a baby shower thank you card can be both easy and a lot of fun! Just follow these tips and ideas, and you're sure to write a meaningful thank you card your guests will treasure for years to come. Ready to write one now? Our thank you eCards and baby shower eCards are here for you to customize and send to family and close friends with ease.

What is a signup sheet?

Signup sheets are the perfect way to streamline scheduling, volunteer recruitment, class parties, snack duty, potluck organization, parent-teacher conferences and more! You can think of them as your digital assistant for coordinating events and tasks and ensuring that your event is a success.

Evite SignUp Sheets offers parents, teachers and event planners customizable online forms that organizers and volunteers can access and update effortlessly. Volunteers can choose their preferred time slots, sign up for tasks or indicate what they'll bring to the event. It only takes organizers a few minutes to create a signup sheet and send it out with a shareable link, so they can get the word out via text, email or social media—whichever way they prefer! 

Long story short, signup sheets save everyone involved tons of time, avoid scheduling headaches and ensure everything runs smoothly before and during the event.

How do I create a signup sheet?

Creating a signup sheet has never been easier than with Evite! Here’s how to create a sheet that’s sure to make your event an absolute success:

  1. Go to Evite SignUp Sheets and choose the template that best fits your needs. Evite offers multiple signup sheet templates perfect for every occasion, including:some text
    • Signup sheets for standalone events (without different time slots), perfect for when you’re organizing a class party, potluck or end-of-season party.
    • Signup sheets for recurring or multi-day events (without different time slots), perfect for when you’re organizing a meal train, post-game snack duty or during appreciation week.
    • Signup sheets for single or multiple day events (with time slots), perfect for when you’re organizing concession stand volunteers, fundraisers and parent-teacher conferences.
  1. After selecting your sheet template, create a title for your signup sheet and add the date, the location, the time (if applicable), who the organizer is, the organizer’s phone number or email and an optional note describing the event to your volunteers. You can also change your signup sheet background and title image if you wish!
  1. Next, create slots for your signup sheet. If you aren’t logged into your account, you will need to do so at this point, but luckily, you can use your existing Evite account (no need to create yet another login!). What you’ll include here will depend on what your event needs, but you can include a list of what’s needed (along with optional descriptions), how many volunteers are needed, and dates and times.
  1. After creating your slots, you can then add a wish list from any retailer or include supply suggestions from Evite’s retailer partners. These are to help your volunteers find and purchase supplies quickly and easily.
  1. Finally, review your sheet, copy your shareable link and send it out to everyone on your list! Every time a volunteer signs up for a slot on your signup sheet, Evite will email you. We will also send reminders to you and your volunteers before your event so no one will forget about it, and we’ll even let volunteers know if you remove their slot or cancel your event sheet so you don’t have to!

What information should be included on a signup sheet?

When it comes to signup sheet information, there are some essentials to include regardless of what you’re organizing:

  1. A title for your signup sheet. Tip: Aim to keep your signup sheet title concise but clear. You want volunteers to read it and have a general understanding of what your event is about, and also make it easy for them to look for later if they need to reference your sheet again. You have the option to include a more descriptive note in a different field about your event, so save the more in-depth details for that!
  1. When and where the event is taking place. 
  1. The organizer’s name and phone number.
  1. Slots for volunteers to choose from. Once you choose the SignUp Sheets template that fits the occasion, the slots you’ll need for your sheet will be right there and ready for you to add the relevant info, such as dates, times, items to bring and tasks to complete. 

When adding your slot information, clearly define what people are signing up for, especially for a what-to-bring list or role assignments. If you want someone to bring healthy snacks for kids to enjoy after a game, specify that. You want your volunteers to feel confident in what they’re bringing and to make it easy for them to know what’s expected of them. It will save them time and stress (and you, too!). That being said, if you make your ask too specific (for example, asking for a hard-to-source item or something expensive), you may not end up with a volunteer for it. So be clear about what you expect, but also be reasonable!

Aside from providing the basic signup information, you can also add optional descriptions to both your entire signup sheet and individual slots. While not required, they can help guide your volunteers further and provide more information. You can add information about allergies, preferences and general info about the event. You can also add a wish list to make it easier for your volunteers to bring exactly what you need!

What are the benefits of using a signup sheet template?

Signup sheet templates offer a ton of advantages for both organizers and volunteers and with Evite SignUp Sheets, you'll enjoy even more benefits than other digital and paper signup sheets! Some benefits our signup sheet templates offer include:

  • A 100% free experience (no subscriptions required!).
  • Shareable links for quick and easy sharing.
  • No need to create another login—you can use your existing Evite account.
  • The option to add a wish list to help your volunteers out.
  • Automatic reminders—we’ll remind everyone on your behalf.
  • An easy-to-use experience with eye-catching guided templates.
  • Clean, modern designs with no pop-up ads.

With Evite SignUp Sheets, you can enjoy organizing and coordinating all your events with ease. Signup sheets streamline the signup process for everyone involved, ensuring that everything will go to plan on the day of your event while saving you precious time in the process.
