Baby-shower books instead of cards

My friend was telling me about doing a book well instead of cards...like people bringing books instead of cards and I love that idea


How would I express that in my invitation and not sound rude? Chat Icon

Re: Baby-shower books instead of cards

My sister just got an invitation for that and the little poem on a separate card was cute. I just called her to read it to me and she already threw it away! Chat Icon Maybe you can do a google for baby book wishing well poem or something. Or I'm sure someone will turn something up.

Re: Baby-shower books instead of cards

i think that is an awesome idea...i found this online...

I want to be a bright child
As smart as I can be.
That is why I'm hoping
My mom will read to me.

If you plan to bring a card
Please take another look.

Re: Baby-shower books instead of cards

I went to a shower about a year ago and the invitation mentioned "wishing well" and asked that we bring a book to start a library for the baby. I don't remember the exact wording, but we filled a bassinet with books. I thought it was so cute!

Re: Baby-shower books instead of cards

I am doing this for my shower and on a separate card which had the registry information there is a saying. I am not sure of the exact words but can post them when I get home.

Re: Baby-shower books instead of cards

One little request
it shouldn't be hard
Lets all bring a book
instead of a card!

Mommy and Daddy wish
to read each and every night
Before they kiss their baby
and turn off the light!

Thank you for helping
baby's library grow,
We really appreciate it
just so you know!

Re: Baby-shower books instead of cards

Both my co-worker and family/friends showers requested books for the baby with an inscription inside from the guest

It is so nice to have all these sweet notes to us and the baby and we got a TON of books- I think we are up to 50 already and only had 2 doubles ( Goodnight Moon and Guess How much I love you)


My friend put " One little request that shouldnt be hard, sign a book for baby instead of a card"on the invite.
