My husband's sisters buy my son way too much stuff. For my shower, they practically bought my entire register! While I appreciate their generosity, they don't have the finances to be spending a lot of money on my child. I tried to tell them I really don't need anything for him right now so they started "buying for the future". I don't want to save a bunch of things for "someday" when I might need them! I also have 2 sisters and a mom who want to buy my son things. And then what's left over for me? When I tried to talk to them about it, I got told "You really can't stop us, we'll do what we want". HELP! Any advice as to how to make them slow down?
Their must be something your other family members can buy that they did not buy. Why don't you get people to put money in a college fund for you baby.

I never turned down FREE stuff. Especially if it is new. For my kids. Just say "thank you". One day people will stop buying your kid/s stuff. You other family can buy stuff later for your baby.
