What to write in a baby shower card

Sweet baby shower messages for a girl and a boy.

The best baby shower wishes are short but sweet.

Beyond onesies and diaper pails, the right words can be the best baby gift. But how do you choose your baby shower message?

Do you write a baby shower card for both parents? Should you go for a sentimental? Funny? Or maybe just a great quote will do? The key is to wrap up your feelings of joy and excitement in just a few lines.   

“Cards stand as heartfelt mementos for every celebration life brings,” said Rachel Huntington of Bonjour Fête, a modern party store. “Whatever card you choose, and whatever the message inside, old fashioned note-writing is sure to make mom smile on her special day.”

Instead of just signing xoxo and your name, here are baby shower wishes and messages to help you craft the perfect baby shower card.
