First Birthday Thank You Card Etiquette

If in addition to first birthday thank you card wording ideas, you’re also in need of first birthday thank you card etiquette advice, check out the section below.

Who should I send first birthday thank you cards to?

Send first birthday thank you cards to anyone who attended your child’s first birthday party and to those who didn’t attend but shared cards or gifts with you and your child. Also send a first birthday thank you card to anyone who helped plan, organize, or pay for the celebration.

When should first birthday thank you cards be sent?

Like most thank you cards, first birthday thank you cards should be sent out no later than two weeks after your child’s celebration. If you want to speed things up, consider opting for mailing service when purchasing your first birthday thank you cards online. Mailing service is a convenient feature, that some custom stationery companies offer, where they print, package, address, stamp, and send your cards for you, directly to your friends and family.

From which point of view do I write the card — from my kid’s or mine?

It’s up to you. You’ll see cards online written from the baby’s perspective which is cute, but you can also write it from you perspective on behalf of your child, which is how most of the wording below is written. We prefer this way because it not only allows you to share a more meaningful, sincere message, but also gives your first birthday thank you card a more formal appearance.

When filling out your first birthday thank you cards, try mentioning what exactly you’re thanking the recipient for. Did they share a cash gift? Let them know you appreciate it and what you will be using for. Did they help with food, decorations, or something else? Tell them how special their efforts made your celebration. Including specifics like these will make for more personal, meaningful first birthday thank you cards.
