Alright bees, I need your help!! I’m starting to write thank you cards for my shower gifts from earlier this month, and I am at a COMPLETE LOSS as what to write. The main reason I have writer’s block is because it was a lingerie themed bridal shower. Sooo do I write this:
“Hey Future Mother-In-Law, thanks for the matching bra and panties? Your son and I will enjoy them!”
For some reason, I don’t think that is appropriate LOL

Write it the same way you’d thank someone for cash? “Thank you for your generosity.”

I wouldn’t even name them specifically. I mean, you’re both adults. She knows what ya’ll are doing with the lingerie. Just thank her so much for being there and for the gift.

LOL! I mean, she knows what she gave you…hopefully she has a sense of humor? I’d just say something like “thank you so much for the lingerie set – I love it!” Or something like that. No need to bring her son into it. 😉

I would probably say something about how I liked the color, style or somehing to hat effect 🙂

“Thank you so much for the bra and panties. Jonny couldn’t wait to get me out of them. Best sex ever!”
I guess thanking her for the beautiful lingerie set would be enough, no need to mention how you will use it.

“They were a perfect fit and they are beautiful. Thank you so much.” is enough. Don’t get into the pretzel with her son scenario soon to happen afterwards.
