I hate receiving baby/wedding shower invitations that ask for gift cards, diapers, and/or wipes. No one wants to attend a shower when no cute gifts are going to be oohed and aahed over. I don't want to buy diapers and wipes, I want to buy fun lovely things that are going to be passed around to all the guests.
I can still tell you what person gave us certain toys, outfits and wedding presents. Some are quite unique and others are very special. My late Aunt Sybil gave Katherine a gold locket with her initial on it. It's one of my favorite treasures.
Chuck and I got married the last day of November so we received several Christmas ornaments as gifts. I love them all and we enjoy reminiscing over them every year.
I hope you can forgive my being a snob and invite me to your gift card/diaper and wipes shower anyway.
