I received the following E invite last week from a casual friend of my dh. I find it really tacky and my dh says I am over reacting to it. I love to pick out things for a baby shower. I generally give things that are needed in a basket (diapers. wipes, baby Tylenol, etc) I also shop the sales and get a lot for very little money. I really feel uncomfortable giving cash and don't want to seem cheap by only giving the $10-$15 that I spend on an awesome basket. So what does everyone think?
I have decided to have my baby shower before the holiday season hits full swing. We will be gathering at the Park covered picnic area next to the playground. Because I really have everything I need for this little girl I am doing a card box instead of gifts. Anything you can give will be used to pay for the cost of A's birth and help M take a little time off to get to know his new daughter. If you feel called to also bring a gift it will be gratuitously accepted.
