Usually, the shower card is addressed to the mother of the baby.

Write 'Dear (Mother's First Name)' inside the card if you are close to the expectant mother.

If the baby shower is formal write the mother's proper name, also if you only know the expectant mother in a professional setting.

Write both parents' names if it is a couples shower or if you are good friends with the father as well.

Also, the name you write inside the card should be the same as on the outer envelope of your card.
