Just venting a little. I mean, I am doing them because it is proper and I’ve always appreciated receiving one even though it went directly to the trash after. Now I will definitely have a new found respect for them when I receive them, lol. I just feel like I’m running out of things to write… they will all sound like this:
Thank you so much for attending the shower. We love the _____ gift and can’t wait to use it.
I feel like that’s so lame. But I don’t know any of his mother’s friends to personalize it at all.

You could write ‘i am so happy that you could share in this exciting day with me’ or ‘we can’t wait to put the toaster to good use in our future kitchen’ and then ‘we look forward to sharing more happy occasions together in the future’…just a thought.

For the shower TYs, I also had a line like “It meant so much to be surrounded by so many wonderful friends/so much love that day.” “Looking forward to sharing our big day with you!”

Also try to remember something about them to mention (people love compliments)
It was lovely seeing you at the shower. Fritz and I were so pleased to receive the left handed caviar scoop. When we saw that at the store I knew my kitchen wouldn’t be complete with out one.
You looked absolutely stunning in the yellow flowered hat. I hope you get to wear it to the wedding.
Can’t wait to see you there,

For the newbies in your life, there’s always the “I’m so happy to have finally met you. I know you are very important to my mother and it’s wonderful to see why!”
