There is a mom to be who is asking that anyone coming to her baby shower do one thing. Buy her a present. Really. She even tweeted that she’s giving wristband to those who brings gifts. Those who don’t bring a gift don’t get to eat because, as she wrote, “[Why are] you coming to a baby shower for with no gift? To see me open everyone else gift and eat! The point of it is to shower my baby with gift not freeload.”
… Some people love the idea: “I think it’s smart. People can still come by if they want to show love and congratulate, but they ain’t gonna eat / drink for free with no gift.” And “You shouldn’t want to come to a baby shower empty handed any ways … if I’m broke I’m not coming period.”
… Some weren’t so positive: “A baby shower is to CELEBRATE the new life coming NOT to receive gifts. Seems like you aren’t ready for the baby yourself.”
Yeah, I wouldn't be going to her shower. Well wishes on the birth of her child, but I don't need this kind of drama in my life. You?
