So, I recently had my baby shower, and I got some good stuff, but some people didn't show up to my baby shower, so they just sent a gift...and I got some doubles. Like, 2 bathtubs, 2 baby bouncers, 2 of the same onsie packs, and a million and one blankets.
Do you even tell people that you've taken back their gift, or do you just do it and not say anything? Do people get offended if you take their gift back? I wish they were the exact same thing, but its 2 different bathtubs, and 2 different bouncers. What if they ask for pictures of my son in them or something? I don't want to keep the extras because, what would be the point in that, you know? Plus we don't have that much space to begin with and it would just get really crowded.
So, do I take them back and just not say anything, or tell people I took it back?
(I'm putting this under, both pregnancy and relationships)
Take them back & get a store credit for extra things you may need like diapers or clothes. I would not be offended if you returned my gift, I would be happy that you are getting something you really need for the baby. Usually people give the gift with the gift receipt attached for that reason. You are going to need clothes for the next season too. I would not say anything to the person unless they ask. Then say you received two & one was not returnable but you bought something you really needed but did not get for the shower.
