Thank you for the great Kitchenaid blender. I certainly love to bake, and will think of you every time I use it. I'm looking forward to seeing you and Uncle Herb at the wedding.
Dear Aunt Jane,
I really appreciate the beautiful lingerie you gave me at my bridal shower. It's wonderful to think I will have a variety of nice things to share with Bubba. I'm looking forward to seeing you and Uncle Horace at the wedding.
Every year for my birthday and christmas (generally) mom gives me a gift card to Vic's Secret. DH always says thank you. Although, you can buy other stuff there, and I do. But we still think it's funny. She gives the same gift card to my SIL. haha. I've just always opted for thanks, mom, although Myra's specific wording is much more interesting!!

My DH actually wrote the thank you notes for my lingerie shower!! The only people there were my BMs, and DH is close to all of them, so it was pretty funny. He didn't write anything raunchy or anything, he pretty much just thanked them for the lingerie. My BMs thought it was hilarious though.
I know that wouldn't work for most people, but given how close DH is to my BMs and our sense of humor, it worked for us.
EDIT: I just re-read your post, and I'm guessing if you're worried about sounding awkward, having your FH write the notes probably isn't the best option for you!
