Baby Shower Wishes and Messages

A baby shower is often overlooked as a special occasion that gives the chance to celebrate what will be a momentous and life changing event for the soon-to-be mom. Getting to enjoy that moment and commemorate it with family and friends is a big part of the pregnancy process and one future moms will want to really revel in. As the name ‘Baby Shower’ comes from the showering of love and attention to the future mom, and with that comes gifts and cards, you may be required to write on a card or in person give baby shower wishes to the mom.

If you are sending a card, or a gift with a card, then you will want to write a message or sentiment inside, maybe congratulating or just wishing them well. But the correct words aren’t always easy to come by. If you’re worried about what to say or are struggling then follow this guide to writing the perfect baby shower wishes and messages. You’ll find a quick rundown of how to write your own message or wishes as well as a whole host of example messages for different circumstances and relationships.

What to Write in a Baby Shower Card

If you prefer to write your own baby shower card instead of using a pre written example (see below for those) then there are some ideas you can follow to make sure you get the perfect and most fitting message.

  1. Begin by greeting the mom-to-be. Something simple like “Dear _____” is perfectly fine. Sometimes couples hold a baby shower together so if that’s the case then address both parts of the couple rather than just the mom.
  2. Next you will want to congratulate or wish them well on their pregnancy. Something a simple as “wishing you all the best with your pregnancy”
  3. You can either leave it at that or add an extra, more personal line. This allows you to maybe remember an anecdote, possibly a joke, or just expand a bit further on their upcoming motherhood – “We’re so excited for you and can’t wait to finally meet the little arrival!”
  4. Finally finish by signing the card, either from you or your partner/family as well – “lots of love ______”

However you can use the pre written examples below and copy them directly into your card if you prefer.

Baby Shower Quotes

A quote can be the perfect way to wish a mom-to-be congratulations. Famous quotations said by well known names can help if you’re struggling with what to say, and are often more profound or touching than anything you could think up yourself.

Religious Sayings

If the mom-to-be is religious then you can make your message reflect this. However if the family isn’t or you’re unsure how they might react to a religious wish then steer clear. You don’t want to end up offending them over something like this.

Wishes for the Baby

You can actually address the card to the baby itself. This can be touching and sweet, as well as a nice memento for both parents and the baby to look back on when they are grown up.
