How to Address a Baby Shower Card

If you’re unsure about how to address the card, or who to address it to, think about your relationship with the parents. If the mom is your boss, a more formal approach is appropriate, but if the mom is your best friend, go for a more casual greeting.

The baby shower invitation often provides a guide to how to address the card. If the invitation comes from more than one parent, address the card to both of them, but if the invitation comes from one parent only, then address it to them alone.

Addressing the card to the baby is also a great way to get started. Knowing the gender of the baby makes doing so easier. If you’re close to the parents and they’ve shared the planned name with you, use the name in your opening greeting.

Here are some suggestions for how to start the card:

  • Dear…(the mom’s name)
  • Dearest …&…(both parents’ names)
  • To the soon-to-be-tired parents
  • To the about-to-be best mom in the world
  • Dear Mom and Dad to be
  • To the most glamorous Mom to be
  • To the eagerly awaited little munchkin
  • To our beloved…(the baby’s name)
  • To the most loved little girl/boy/baby in the whole world
