If you have been invited to a baby shower, then you will want to bring a gift and a customized gift card that communicates how happy you are for your friend's new baby and the journey ahead. Craft the words in your baby shower greeting card to reflect the whimsy of babies and the adventure in store for new parents. You might consider using both prose and poetry. Attach the card to the gift.
Things You'll Need
- Blank scrap paper
- Baby greeting card
- Transparent tape
Jot down key words on a piece of paper to get started. Think about words that describe your friend such as "thoughtful," "kind," "compassionate," and "smart." Also jot down words related to a baby such as "cutie pie," "little bebe," and "tiny toes." These key words will help to get you thinking about how you feel about your friend's new journey and may help you craft a meaningful piece of prose or a cute poem.
Practice your message before penning it in the actual card. Use a blank piece of paper to write a first draft. Feel free to cross out and rewrite on this page. Once you have written your message and are happy with it, write a second clean draft. You will use this perfect draft to copy the message into the card.
Write a simple greeting that incorporates the baby theme. An example is "Hello, Baby!" Also, consider a short, two-liner poem. An example is the following: "Hello, Baby! We are waiting for you! We know you will be cute, smart and adorable--like your parents, too!"
Sign your card with a sentimental closing, depending on how close you are to the mother. Some examples are the following: "Fondly," "In Expectation," and "Warmest Congratulations."
Tape the shower card to the gift with a piece of transparent tape.
