Remember to purchase baptism thank you cards for sending after the event. Because this is such a special occasion that is shared with your family and friends, you want to choose thank yous that fit the celebration.
Sometimes you will find thank you or informal note cards available that match your baptism invitation design. An informal card has the baby's name printed on the front with a blank inside for writing your own personal note.
If your invitation style doesn't come with matching cards, there are plenty of baptism and christening styles to choose from. When they are ordered from a printer, there is typically an option to have them personalized with your baby's name on the front. Another option is to purchase cards that can feature a photo of your baby as shown on one of the designs below.
A christening thank you should be written soon after the day of the celebration since memories from the occasion will be fresh in your mind and will be helpful for writing it. If time does get away from you, keep in mind it's really never too late to send thank you notes.
After addressing them by name, you may want to begin your note by showing your appreciation for their sharing this special day with your family and being part of the celebration. Next will be your gratitude for the thoughtful gift they presented to your baby. Be sure to be specific when mentioning the gift to make your note very personal.
For those who weren't able to attend the christening but still took the time to send a gift, remember to acknowledge them with a thank you as well.
The final step to your baptism thank you is to sign it with your names as parents since your child is too young to acknowledge their kindness and generosity.
