Going to a baby shower is pretty much a "seamless" process most of the time. You show up for those you love and usually purchase a gift for them off of their registry. Many soon-to-be mothers register so that they can get the gifts they truly want and need for their babies. But, still, people like to go "off" the registry and pull out of their pocket for gifts. And, sometimes, they really do miss the mark.
15 Very Bad Gifts Moms Received At Their Baby Showers
The worst sister-in-law award goes to her.
"A card from my sister in law, pretty much saying I'm not ready to be a parent and that she hopes I 'don't damage the child.'
It came with the 'What To Expect,' book series for birth through age 5. Lol. Also... She spent the entire party ragging on me to everybody. I had met her once prior to this. She was excused," said
Why are people so rude?
Random and strange.
Talk about awkward.
Used items are not a good look.
"Used and open items. Came from my SIL’s brother-in-law and his wife. I am all for hand-me-downs, but like..open containers of baby power and butt cream that are half used, as their present…lmao. Oh, and it was all packed in a dirty, used diaper backpack,"
What were they thinking?
An electric toothbrush...for a baby.
"A thing to hang on the wall of the baby’s room that was covered in ribbon strung with loose beads. Nothing was knotted or secured in any way. Several beads fell off as I lifted it out of the box. So… they gave me a choking hazard for my baby,"
Small apartments mean small gifts.
Who's having the baby here?!?
"So when my son was born, my brother-in-law gave me a card. When I read the card, he wrote that he bought 2 football game tickets. One for him and one for my husband…… And he got me, the one who had a baby in her belly for roughly 10 months absolutely nothing," said
Always with the pink.
A surprise waiting for you?
A "time out" chair.
A video that never made it.
"In lieu of a shower during the pandemic, someone close to me coordinated a bunch of video submissions from friends and family to be compiled into one final product. Should have been great. But it was never sent to us.
The babies are now 7 months old and we still haven’t seen the videos. I wish she’d just let people send us their well wishes directly. I feel sick about it even as I type this," said
