    Default Baby shower gift registry

    Ok so I feel like I've been living under a rock- I only just found out about baby shower gift registry when I was out shopping yesterday.. I could not believe the cheek of it!
    To me this is the most tacky, presumptuous idea ever and I would be quite shocked if I was ever invited to a shower with a registry.

    What does everyone else think? Has anyone been to one before?

    I would never consider it for my own baby shower personally. The idea just doesn't sit well with me.

    I've never been to a shower with a registry, I just asked my friends what they needed and then picked what I thought they might like for a price I could afford. Feels a lot more personal I think.

    I am having a baby shower in a couple of weeks and I could never bring myself to register for gifts - i find it a bit rude to be honest.

    Instead I gave a list of what we still need to my family hosting it and they sorted out the gifts for me much nicer and I don't feel like i am making them bring me a gift

    I find any sort of gift registry shallow and presumptuous.

    ETA - unless it is made clear that a gift is not expected, and that the registry is only for people who insist on giving a gift.

    I held a baby shower, but definitely did not create a gift registry. I know this is done for weddings...but maybe a bit too far for baby shower imo. I think gifts come form the heart and really are the thoughts that count.
