Who doesn’t love baby showers? Bringing new life into the world is one of the most special occasions in our lives. And it’s so worth celebrating! So, when that soon-to-be new mom in your life invites you to her baby shower celebration, you’ll want to be sure to bring a wonderful gift along with a thoughtfully written baby shower card.

But what does one write in a baby shower card? At Twigs Paper, celebrating special occasions is kind of our thing. We don’t just want you have the best sustainable stationery, but we also want to inspire creative ways to personalize your messages to loved ones. After all, connecting with people is what it’s all about. So, let’s look at some clever ways to send your baby shower wishes.

What to Write in a Baby Shower Card?

For occasions like these, we often overthink what to write on a baby shower card, because we want it to stand out from the rest of the dozens of cards our new mom will undoubtedly be receiving.

Remember, it’s always best to be genuine, but what exactly does that mean? When writing a greeting card, you want to stay true to your personality and the relationship you have with the recipient, which means it can be perfectly acceptable to be funny, serious, simple, or sometimes even slightly generic if you don’t know them too well.

When it comes to putting pen to paper, we know writing a baby shower message to new parents can be somewhat daunting. So, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to try and make that process a little easier for you. Whether the new mom in your life is your sister, daughter, friend, or co-worker you’ll be able to find some inspiration below to get your pen moving.
