Sometimes though, they can be a hotbed of stress and frustration. Everyone wants to get the 'cute' gifts and not always the practical ones that might be more appreciated. One woman got in a heated fight after she didn't get the right gift for her sister's baby shower.
I 29f have a sister 26f. She’s pregnant and recently had a baby shower. She had a registry of things she needed. I didn’t buy anything off of that though, I had ordered custom made onesies with my nieces name on it, and a changing pad.
I don’t have much money, I have a geriatric dog who costs a lot. I thought the gift I gave was cute and meaningful, and that she’d also be getting a lot of other gifts.
