Writing a thank you card to everyone who attended your baby shower and gave you and your child a gift shows proper etiquette and sincere appreciation. Add a unique twist to your thank yous to let your loved ones know how much you truly do appreciate the time and money they spent on your baby.

Snap pictures of your baby using the gifts and send the photos with a thank you card. You can word the card as from you or your baby. For example, your baby could write "Thank you so much for the soft blanket. I sleep better when Mommy swaddles me in it." If you'd rather send the thank yous out sooner, consider including a clear copy of your sonogram or a picture of the baby's nursery with the gift clearly visible in the photo.
Bake a batch of your favourite cookies or some other secret recipe of yours that your loved ones are always asking for. Shape the cookies, cakes, bread or whatever you're baking into baby-themed shapes, such as bootees, a bottle, a pacifier or a diaper, with cookie cutters. Wrap the baked goods in clear cellophane and tie the package with a ribbon. Attach a card containing a note thanking the recipient for her specific gift.
Give your loved ones a small gift along with a thank you card as a token of your appreciation if you're able. This is especially nice when you received a large gift, such as a car seat or crib. For example, spa certificates allow recipients to pamper themselves for a day. You could even arrange a spa day for you and your loved ones to share before the baby comes. For a really large gift or a group gift, consider making a donation to your favourite charity in the recipient(s)' names.
Your baby shower hostess likely put a lot of time and possibly money into your shower as well as gave you a nice gift. Say thank you to your hostess with a special gift. Consider giving her a bottle of her favourite wine with a custom-made label that has her name and a thank you message on it. Alternatively, a gift card to her favourite store or an invitation to lunch can accompany a sincere handwritten thank you note.
