Now that the baby shower is over, you need to send thank you cards to your friends and guests. It is a nice gesture to show your appreciation. The cards are usually send as early as possible, meaning 3-4 days after the party. If not possible, remember that it is better to have a delayed thank you note rather than no note at all.
There are certain etiquette that have to be followed when writing baby shower thank you notes.
- It is recommended to write thank you cards personally, as hand-written notes mean a lot more than printed ones. Typed letters also lack the personal touch.
- Always write the person's name on the note.
- The type of gift received (gift cards, cash, articles) is usually mentioned in the card. In cases where you have forgotten what gift came from the guest, you can merely thank the guest for the gift without mentioning the type of the gift in detail.
- Lastly, you should try to avoid making your thank you notes generic and clinical. Make sure that every note sounds personal and heartfelt.
