Baby Shower Guide

Ever hold a newborn baby in your hands? Do you know the feeling when you adjust your hands to properly hold the baby, the way you hold their neck and manage to lift them with caution? Wonderful isn't it? Childbirth is no less than a miracle, bringing a child to life isn't easy. A mother has to go through a lot of physical, emotional and mental changes and at the same time, a father helps in the process. The happiness of a newborn crying for the first time and opening tiny eyes couldn't be described in mere words. Those emotions are far above any type of description, they are simply felt and remembered. Do you have someone who you know who is about to give birth to a baby? If yes then let's get on with it. We have to make a lot of things that could make them happy.

The phenomenon of a baby shower is a lovely gesture to show love and support to the family by promising them that during tough times we stand by you and during the happy ones we will celebrate with you. Why not do something special for them? After all, childbirth is an experience that changes a person completely.

Why write a baby shower card?

Millions of people in this pandemic situation are compelled to stay home and couldn't go out much. When it comes to celebrations like baby showers sometimes we are unlucky enough to not go and celebrate in person. So what do we do? We write virtual letters. Letters are a source of showing lovely gestures of love and support. It's a thoughtful way of bringing feelings and emotions together.

A way of creating a memory book and preserving the souvenir. When it comes to moments like this in our lives the first-timers can feel a lot of stress. You simply stay there to be their backbone in times of emergency. The time for baby cries is about to start. Why not prepare the parents for it by being with them until the time comes? Why not celebrate with them and count the days for the baby's arrival?

Whom to write a baby shower Card?

We should write a baby shower letter to every one among our acquaintances who is about to be a father or mother. Both parents have to go through a lot of changes in their lives. While a baby can change a mother physically, the baby can also change the father mentally. People start to grow more mature and loving, now that they have a responsibility. A wonderful responsibility. After this transition things don't remain the same, they change for the better.

The whole family becomes happy because of one new member. Those little legs moving around and falling, those tiny arms preparing to hug and that tiny smile that makes everyone cheerful. You should write this letter to everyone, no matter if they belong to your workplace or are a family member. Share it with happiness all around.

How to write a baby shower Card?

Do we need to follow any structure? Certainly not. We just start by sharing how we feel and how much support we are ready to offer to the parents-to-be. We would like to share a few tips with you so that your letter becomes more pleasant.

baby shower wishes
  • Salutation

  • Always start with a lovely salutation, something that is personal between you because that shows your feelings are real and that you aren't writing this letter under any compulsion. When in doubt use "dear" as that also is a great salutation.

  • Content

  • Congratulate them for their ongoing pregnancy and wish them happiness for the upcoming baby. Share some memories wherein you felt that the receiver could make a great mother or father. Sharing such instances gives them confidence and makes them feel at ease during the entire process. Show how happy you are with the news and how you would like to celebrate this day with them.

  • Tone

  • Your writing tone should be cheerful. Remember this is a big change in anyone's life and to make it hard would just destroy everything. Do not talk about any bad moments and make them feel that they are not ready for this. Rather your words should show strength and support and believe that they would make wonderful parents.

  • Ending

  • End it with the same enthusiasm. Address it as a friend who is ready to help anytime.

  • Gifts

  • It may be hard to visit the receiver, in such cases a letter and a small gift could do wonders. Gift something that could prepare them for the upcoming baby or something that the receiver likes. You can choose accordingly. If you are going to meet the receiver then you shouldn't go empty-handed.

These accessories are gifted to the parents on this day and a celebration is in order. Becoming parents is a phenomenal experience that becomes more fun if family members join us. The care of grandparents, the stupid teachings of uncles and aunts, the gaming with brothers and sisters make the journey worth living.
