Writing a thoughtful baby shower card, is a great way to acknowledge this huge milestone and share in the expectant parents celebration of their impending arrival.
We have pulled together our top suggestions of heartfelt messages to express your excitement and best wishes.

How to address the card 

If the baby shower is being organised for the mum to be and is a female only event, address the card to the guest of honour. However, if you are close friends of the couple or the baby shower is a co-ed celebration, the card should be addressed to the expectant parents. 

It is acceptable to reference your gift in your baby shower card but just bear in mind that the card may be read aloud at the celebration.
