Thank you Laura. I figure, any reason to celebrate (especially a good friend and a new baby) is good enough reason for me.

Absolutely! It also depends on how close I am to the person who is having the shower. If its a close personal friend I will certainly attend. Sometimes Ill offer home-made dinners in lieu of presents and youd be surprised how many moms prefer on having it. I think giving what you can and if you can is the key and theres certainly some cases where I did not attend. Thanks for reading mypost Elizabeth.

Youre totally entitled to your opinion Rachel. But what if their friends want to throw it for them or even throw them as a surprise shower? I think sometimes people just want to give and sometimes the celebrant doesnt even expect presents. We went to a birthday party and the birthday boy INSISTED no presents, and Ive attended baby showers where that was also specified, but people still brought presents. I think everyone is going to have their ownview and I appreciate you sharing yours.
