A few helpful hints to remember when it’s your turn to fill out the next baby shower greeting card…

Have fun with it. Use your sense of humor. New babies are a time of celebration and laughter, and there’s no better way to show you care than by including a funny line in your card. If you have fun writing it, they will have fun reading it.

Try writing the card directed at the baby and its parents. It’s humorous to write the card out to the baby only, too. This will give a great reason for the parents to keep their card as a souvenir for their child when it gets older.

Be genuine. Messages straight from the heart, showing how you really feel, are always cards that are memorable and unique. Take your time to think of how you really feel.

Share a personal experience. Everybody loves memories from childhood or the first time you became a parent. Use a card that’s blank inside to have enough room to write a concise story that you think the new parents will enjoy. Someday they can show it to their child as well.

Share some advice about being a parent (only if you are one). This can be truly helpful and will be appreciated by the expecting parents, even if they don’t put it to use. With cards, it’s the thought that counts!
