An invitation to one is tantamount to saying please come round to my house and help yourself to a few crisps I’ve dotted about the room in various dishes and bring me a lovely present for my baby. I can’t drink but please feel free to bring your own wine.
Obviously you are going to know the mother that’s about to pop a sprog and are undoubtedly very pleased for them but is all this necessary as you would have bought them a present anyway. Does that type of environment put you under pressure to buy a more expensive present that you normally would have? Are prospective mother’s playing on that?
The last Baby Shower I was invited to was going to be a booked venue with a buffet. The mother would be very pleased if I could make it and would I please ping her over £30 a.s.a.p for the buffet.
I’ve never been to one nor shall I ever go to one.

This American import annoys me too….I have been to a few…one was my granddaughters…well my Daughter In Laws..
I had already been given instructions on what I was going to buy (the nursery furniture) very nice it was too even though I had no say in which one lol….then obviously I was wondering what to take to the actual shower….I did tell the kids I wont be taking anything as I have already given them their pressie…..I kind of stuck to my guns, but I did take her a lovely arrangement of flowers
I also think its very awkward during pressie opening time….I think that should be done at home and not at the party…for obvious reasons
