I gave her a used blanket for her baby shower

A family friend's daughter had a baby shower today. I gave her a typical baby shower gift, clothes, wipes, some bath accessories, all brand new of course.

And my 3 yo really wanted to give the baby one of his blankets so I wrapped one up too. When she opened it I said "oh that's one of Trey's blankets, he wanted to give it to the baby". She laughed, looked at me then her bf like I was crazy, and said "uhhhh ok? couldn't you have told him no?"

I just shrugged and said yeah but he wanted to. You don't have to keep it.

I don't know why she reacted like that. It was just a little sweet gift from my son because he wanted to be involved. Was that really a weird thing for me to do?

I think it was a weird thing to do. Now she has to throw it away. What a waste. I know you think every little thing your child does is adorable, but other people don't care.

Yeah it was pretty dumb.

I said she could give it back. It's a blanket, not a piece of used food.

She reacted like an ass and hopefully softens up considering she's about to be a mother herself. She's a family friend, it's not like you gave it to someone that didn't even know your son.

You should have taken your son to a store to pick a new one out.  

I wouldn't want a used blanket, either.  That's weird.
