How to actually finish writing your baby shower thank you cards.

A real expert weighs in…
We wanted to get a real expert to help weigh in on getting these bad boys done without waiting until the little babe is graduating high school.

1. Use a Template
If efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to sending out your baby shower thank you cards, just use a simple three- or four-sentence template for the majority of your notes.
Sure, you may want to elaborate a bit on the card to your sister or your best friend, but for the majority of guests, a template will work just fine. It’s not like they’re going to compare thank you cards and say, “Aha! They’re all the same!”
If you’re freaking out about using the wrong words, feel free to use the template I used:
Thank you so much for getting us the wonderful [Gift]. I can just picture little [Baby’s Name] using it in a few months! It was so thoughtful of you, and it was just what we wanted. It was great seeing you, and I hope you can meet little [Baby’s Name] soon!
2. Assign Someone at Your Baby Shower to Keep Track of Gifts
Ask whoever is planning your baby shower to assign somebody to keep track of who gave what when you open up the gifts.
A simple pen and notepad will do, but if you really want to get with the times, have this helper use Google Sheets.
Optional: put this person in charge of making sure you have an updated address for all your guests.
3. Watch TV While Writing Out Your Notes
Don’t view writing your thank you cards as some kind of massive chore.
This task is mindless enough that you can get it done while doing something enjoyable such as watching T.V. or listening to music.
Assuming you didn’t invite your whole town, you could probably knock out writing all your thank you cards within a couple of episodes of The Office that you’ve already watched umpteen times.
Have a few tips of your own?!
