So, I just got home from my cousin’s baby shower a few hours ago. We are so excited for her to bring her little boy into the world. Anyway, whenever I was looking at her baby registry for a gift to take to the shower, I realized just how much crap there is that we all got suckered into registering for as first time moms only to find that two years later, it’s still sitting in storage unopened.
To help avoid this with future generations, here is my list of 5 not so awesome baby shower gifts to buy:
1. Diaper Pail
I actually got one with my first son because a friend said, “OMG! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my diaper pail! You HAVE to get one!” I quickly found out that it is just an extra trash can in the house that seems to get forgotten. We used it for one week and started using our regular trash can instead. I’m no longer friends with that person in case you were wondering. I have a strict “don’t recommend crappy stuff” policy and she definitely violated it.
