Just thank them for their gifts. Tell the SIL that you love the gift, that it’s the prettiest thing you rec ieved and that you can’t wait to wear it.

Thank the MIL for the card. I probably wouldn’t mention the plan to wait a year to use it for replacements. I would tell her that I appreciated her generosity and was looking forward to picking out something special.

@islaya85:  I agree with PP, just send a simple thank you note to thank them for their thoughtfulness and generosity.  You don’t have to delve into what you plan on doing with their gifts!  I’d probably also throw in a “I’m so lucky to have such wonderful in-laws, and I appreciate everything you’ve done for me welcoming me into the family, helping with the wedding, shower, yaddi yaddi yadda” to fluff up the card without having to say “I can’t wait to have DH rip this off me and put a baby in my belly!” *Cringe* LOL you don’t have to go into detail.  Just thank them. 🙂
