55 Baby Shower Messages To Write In A Card Or Gift For Baby

Use these well wishes for inspiration when writer’s block strikes.

Originally Published: 

I love baby showers. Like, I really love them. There is just nothing better than celebrating a new bundle of joy with friends and family. The games, the gifts, the gathering — perfection. It’s also the perfect time to tell the parents-to-be how much you love them and cherish them, and especially the perfect time to write a sweet baby shower message for the new little one.

From funny to sweet and sentimental, there’s plenty of inspiration here to choose from. You can write them in a book as a keepsake, inside a card, or right on the gift’s wrapping if that’s your style. As a self-proclaimed baby shower aficionado, I’m fairly certain that wherever you write them, these well-wishes will garner lots of oohs and aahs from the mom-to-be. (And maybe even a few coos from her new baby soon, too.)
