The shower’s over, the presents are open and you’ve organized the baby outfits by size. Now, it’s time to get busy on thank-you notes. Thank-you notes show your friend (or family member) how much you appreciate their baby gift. Thank-you notes are thoughtful, courteous and demonstrate how grateful you are. Sometimes, though, with your pregnancy (or postpartum) brain, it can be difficult to come up with the wording for thank you notes. Here are some sample thank you notes for baby gifts.
Sample Baby Gift Thank You Note #1
Dear Great Aunt Bertha,
Thank-you very much for the adorable bassinet for (insert baby’s name here.) I was so excited to receive it, and it has been such a blessing to us. I enjoy putting (baby’s name here) to sleep next to me in it at night. It is definitely very convenient to be able to move it from room to room. I love how it matches (baby’s name)’s nursery decor. We are getting much use out of it. I know that all of my babies will enjoy using it.
Also, thank-you for taking the time to come to my baby shower. It was so nice to see you, and I always enjoy your company. I may have to turn to you for some parenting advice in the future, if that’s okay. I am so grateful to have such a loving and generous aunt as you. Thank-you!
Love, Your Name
