This has reminded me of a baby shower I was invited to for someone that I hadn't seen in years. They received some 'cheap' (kmart) clothing from their grandmother, a PENSIONER, & turned to me & said 'I'll hide this stuff at the bottom of the drawers, I'm glad you came, you at least know how to give decent presents' 😳. Gross!!!
I think the 'present grabs' are usually fairly consistent with the persons overall personality.

Definitely agree with the personality thing. With the negative experiences I've had, they are the kind of people that expect the world all the time.

Wow - some great responses. I hadn't really thought about the consecutive baby shower before, but now I think I have a stance. I agree with every baby has the right to be celebrated and that it is a great excuse to catch up with friends before things become a bit hectic post birth.
I've just been invited to my first consecutive baby shower, but for an opposite sex and the family is also short on funds, so I definitely have no problems going and buying a few girly things. Actually, to be honest, I'd already started buying things in the sales for her (really like giving gifts). It just makes it easier to give it to the mum before the birth!
For us, personally, I like the idea of inviting everyone to a BBQ at our house or in the park and maybe having some activities for adults or kids (male and female) just for the laugh factor. It would also have to be no gifts though as we have most things, have a really small house, and it would only be specific items like ie. bottles as they're getting really old, that I would be replacing. I ended up having to give away most body products we were given or that I bought as our kids have sensitive/eczemary skin. If we were to have another baby and make it that far, it would definitely be a cause for a celebration after the last few years that we've had!
