With the birth of your baby, comes the task of thanking your friends and family for the different gifts and help that they give during the time of your pregnancy and birth.
It is very important that you always thank anyone who has provided you with a gift or helped you in some way. A simple thank you card can truly show that you appreciate the person’s gesture.
Shower themed cards offer a great memory.
If you have had a baby shower, you can use the theme of your baby shower and incorporate it into your thank you card. Your guests will love remembering the special time with you and it will serve as a keepsake memory for your shower. If photos were taken during your shower, it is a nice touch to include a photo of your guests in each thank you card. This sends a more personalized message that is often appreciated.
Boy or girl themed thank you cards
If you know the sex of your baby, you can send out gender specific thank you cards. This provides a nice way to thank your friends and family for the nice gifts and help they have given you. With these types of cards, you can customize them any way that you like. You can add embellishments and fancy writing to make your thank you card a work of art.
Baby photo thank you cards are always stylish.
If your baby is born before you send out your thank you cards, you can have a photo thank you card printed up with a picture of your newborn. Your friends and family will love receiving both the thank you and the gift that the photo provides them. This is a great way to send a warm thank you to those who have been there for you through the birth of your new little one.
Hints for making your thank you cards special
It is important that you write a personalized message in each card that you send. Mentioning the specific gift or service that the person provided lets the person know that you truly appreciate what they did for you and gives a much more personal thank you than just a generic card. At the very least, you should hand-sign the card.
A neat touch, that many parents add to a thank you card, is signing the card with both the parents’ names and the new baby’s. This provides a sweet sentiment that makes your thank you card even more special. You can even include a small hand print of the baby for an added touch.
Choosing your baby thank you cards should be a joy and not a chore. Purchasing your cards well before the birth can help you to be prepared and not have to deal with picking out cards when things are busier with the new baby. No matter what type of thank you cards you choose, make them personalized and allow them to express your warmest thanks.
