We are expecting our first bub and very excited.
We live in a small apartment and don't have much space, and because I'm so excited, I've already done lots of research on exactly which products/clothes/decor etc that would work best for us. I REALLY hate clutter (my mum had a messy house) and I hate having things that we don't use.
My sister is throwing me a baby shower and I am worrying that people will give me gifts that I don't need or like. What is the best way to deal with this? I don't want to be ungrateful. Ideally we could have a gift registry or ask for vouchers but I know that this is considered rude.
I hate the idea of people giving us lovely things that we don't need, when other people have nothing.
It has already started - people have started giving me clothes that I know I won't use because they're summer clothes and he's a winter bub.
What can I do? We actually would appreciate gifts as there is a lot of stuff we need, I just want it to be the specific things that we need (I know this sounds really fussy but I am just trying not to be wasteful - what is the point in me buying the nappy bag that is right for me, then being given another one that is not right and it just sitting in a cupboard?).
