Combined showers

stu2900May 22, 2004

My daughters future aunts-in-law are giving a wedding shower for her, and combining it with a baby shower for the grooms cousin. My mother and I will be the only ones from our side at this shower and it will be our first time meeting these people, except for the grooms mother. We feel we should bring a baby gift, but aren't sure if it's appropriate. What do you think?

I would bring some sort of baby gift, but it doesn't have to be anything big or expensive. Is this the cousin's first baby? Maybe you could make some sort of mother's wisdom thing... (I don't have kids, so I can't come up with anything here! LOL!)

I would absolutely bring a baby gift. It's the first time you are meeting them, and they are all bringing gifts for your daughter (and if I'm figuring this correctly, one of the hostesses is the grandmother of the baby-to-be). Why wouldn't it be "appropriate"? Besides, it's so much fun to pick out baby gifts! Books are my favorite baby gift, and maybe bookends.

I would definitely bring a gift, and certainly hope others are bringing gifts for your daughter too. But I have to say that I have never heard of this type of combined shower - it just has never been done in our family. Especially if some of the guests don't know one or the other guest of honor, it would seem rather awkward. I can appreciate that they may feel it is more convenient for mutual guests to attend one shower rather than two, but as a bride to be or mother to be, maybe they wouldn't want to be sharing their spotlight. Just my humble opinion.
