How to word thank you note?

I have made out thank you's for everyone who brought gifts and organized my work shower.  There is one I need to do for a person who attended, showed support, but didn't bring a gift.

I am stumped on how to word the thank you note. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

TIA

  •  

    thank you so much for attending ( coming to, making, being at...) my shower. it was such a great day, and i feel so blessed ( lucky, happy...) to have so many wonderful friends. your precense ( being there..) was important to me and i am so grateful for your love and support. thank you so much for coming.

  • How about something like;

    Thank you for attending my shower.  It meant so much to me that you were able to take part/share in my special day.  I also appreicate all of the support that you showed/gave (not sure what she did).  You are a wondeful friend to have/ I will always cherish our friendship.

    Just a suggestion...take any or all (or nothing) that you like.

  • I am not writing a note to the one person who came and didn't given a gift. I don't really see any reason to. It was nice to see her, but I wouldn't write a TY note to someone just because we had lunch together.

  • For my wedding, I didn't write thank you notes to those who didn't bring a gift.  It is an expense for the person who is throwing the event.  The person was better off not coming and actually costing the family/friends money.
  • Was this shower held at your office during the workday? And are you close friends with this person? Honestly, I don't think I would write one, either. If I had just ducked in a conference room for a few minutes (and maybe grabbed some free cake!) I would feel a bit self-conscious about getting a flowerly note. It would probably sound fake to me. It would be a different story if you're talking about an off-site event held outside of work hours. Even if there was no gift, that would require a little more time and planning to attend on their part.
  • To be honest I didn't thanks anyone out right for the gift they brought to the shower. I thanked them with a personal note that I tailored just for them. Like one of my aunts has always been very supportive and concerned throughout my pregnancy, so in my note I thanked her for her continued support and attending my shower to help celebrate the upcoming arrival of our daughter. I always feel like it's automated or generic when I get a thank you note and it says "Thank you for coming to my shower! I really appreciated your gift of the newborn carter's outfit and know she will be adorable in the pink and green blanket." I always think "ok...I know what I bought you, why do you have to put it in here."

     No

    This is terrible!  Why did you invite people who you would not care to see if they don't purchase a gift?  You are extraordinarily self-centered.  Perhaps at your next event you can just charge admission?

    I'm not sure a formal thank you note is required for these situations but certainly one should be appreciative the invitee came to celebrate with them.
