Top tips for writing thank you cards from the kids
- No matter what the occasion, note down who gave your child each gift so that you can mention specific gifts in your message and how you or your child are going to use them.
- Save time by typing up a generic message that can apply to all of your thank you cards, and then add a personal touch by signing off the cards by hand.
- Photo baby thank you cards can be a great way to treat your friends and family to a picture of your little one, and taking photos can make writing thank you cards more fun for older kids!
- Send thank you cards as soon as possible as they are too easy to put off and usually take a few sessions to finish off.

- Ensure that you keep your address book up to date to be ready to send thank you cards for any occasion.
It all starts with…Baby Shower Thank You Cards
As the name suggests, a baby shower is the first opportunity for your friends and family to shower you and your baby with gifts. It is in your interests to get organised and to send these out before your baby arrives, as we are sure that you will have other things to think about once your new little girl or boy is on the scene!
Send a card to everyone who attended and remember to thank the person who organised the shower too, as getting everyone together and organising activities isn’t always easy!

Birthday – Writing Thank You Cards from the kids

Christmas Thank You Cards from the kids
Santa will not be the only one who adds some extra special gifts under the tree for your child, so make sure that you thank your friends and family. Get your little one in the habit of saying thank you by making sure that you send thank you cards from the kids every Christmas. Eventually you can buy them their own thank you cards pack and have them send off their own notes, but in the meantime, take a look at our ideas below:
- Thank you for the money you gave me for Christmas. I am going to put it towards my new paint set. Mummy is taking me to buy it next week.
- I was so excited to receive your Christmas gift in the post! The barbie doll is exactly what I wanted.
- Thank you so much for sending a Christmas parcel for the boys. They absolutely loved their gifts. It was so kind of you to think of them.
- Thank you so much for the money you sent Catherine for Christmas. We have put it in her savings account for the time being.
No one enjoys writing thank you cards, (especially not kids), but they are such an important way to let your loved ones know how much you appreciate their repeated support and generosity and to teach your kids an important lesson about gratitude.
We are sure that you’ll agree when we say: bring on the day when the kids are old enough to write their own cards without any help, but remember in the meantime that it isn’t really that important what the kids rights, and more so the fact that they or you took the time to write something!
For young children, you can write a thank you note on their behalf, but may like to have your baby or toddler add his or her own stamp by having them sign off with a finger or handprint. If your children are old enough to be able to write, let them write their thank you cards themselves. You may still need to help with the wording, but don’t stress over spelling out words as little errors will add to the authenticity of it all and some slip ups might even give your loved ones a giggle.
