Before I write this post I'd like to say I know this will sound a bit ungrateful and I really don't mean to be!
I had my baby shower this past weekend and it was wonderful. I didnt open gifts during the shower, instead opened them later with DH. We ended up getting quite a few double ups, for example 3 Bumbos, 2 Nappy Bags and a few of those baby record books.
What is the proper etiquette in this situation? I didn't open gifts in font of the guests so obviously they don't know that I've received a few of the same thing, I'm sure if they had some of them would have offered to exchange or something.
I'm really grateful to all the guests and know they didn't have to give me anything so I'm appreciative of the generosity but feel that some of these gifts won't get used and It'll just be a waste of their money and I feel bad for that. Is it extremely impolite to mention to them that I received more than 1 of their gift and would they mind if I exchanged it or is this truly horrible? What is the correct thing to do?
