My coworker is having twin boys, she want's nothing but diapers as gifts. How can we throw a shower with only diapers? Is it rude to have "bring only diapers or gift cards" on the invites?

 It's called a 'sprinkle' shower. Usually just diapers and wipes.

Hell no. Diaper parties rock and that's ALL I would want from anyone as well! I already have everything else.

Actually, I would take handmade gifts. Those are special.

 Let her throw her own shower then. 

If I got an invitation that said "gift cards or diapers", I wouldn't go at all.  Such a request WILL turn people such as myself off.  And since I'm fairly well off, I'm usually the one that buys the big gift on the gift registry or just gives $100 cash.

maybe she already has everything she needs. no need to make ppl buy more if she doesn't really need it. but a new mom always needs diapers.

I have twins and was thrown a "Dipes,Wipes, & Put it on ice shower"  BAsiclly just a shower that was diapers, wipes and food for the freezer (or gift cards)  It was the best shower I have ever had!  I was so thankful for the diapers.  I didn't have to buy diapers for the twins for a year!

I had twins and I appreciated the diapers sooooo much!  We didn't ask for them specifically, but a lot of people just assumed we would need a lot of them.  We did not buy a single pack of diapers their first year.  If I needed a different size I would just go to Walmart and exchange them.  I do see where they're coming from wanting the diapers and they're an easy thing to shop for, but do they not need anything else for twin babies?!

Ok, I have never heard of a sprinkle shower before. Well if most peole would not consider it rude, I guess it should be ok.

She has a three and four yr old, so she has a ton of clothing and a lot of baby stuff from them.

I don't think that's rude at all
