I had started a quilt a few years ago for a distant relative's wedding and they called it off. They decided to live together the last few years.
Last week I received a shower invitation for a 'gift card only' shower for them. The card stated drop by from 1 to 3. I think this is way beyond tacky!!!! They rudely ask for money and then say just drop it by lol!!!!!!!
They are expecting a baby and the baby shower is in the planning stages. I was told this will be 'gift card only' also.
I will skip both showers and after the baby is born I will give the 4 burp cloths I have embroidered to the grandparents and they can give them to the parents which I have only met him twice and never met her.
Am I just getting too old or do any of you find this practice of asking for a gift, especially money rude?? The reason was stated that they have already set up house so they don't need house items, so why have a shower?
