A couple of weeks ago over at Rants from Mommyland, my good friend and part-time collaborator Claire Goss (also known as Guru Louise), came up with this great post about wildly inappropriate baby shower gifts she wanted to give her best friend. After we published our list, our readers left us some really good suggestions of things we’d forgotten about.
Here’s the thing about this list; at first glance you will think that I’m kidding. I’m not kidding. Also, if you show up at a baby shower with this stuff, someone is going to give you the stink eye. But you know what? Your friend the new mom is actually going to need all this crap. And for every women who gives you the righteous sniff for giving something practical instead of a $90 embroidered toy bin from Pottery Barn Kids, there will be a wise mom in the corner, nodding in approval and giving you a mental high five.
And we already know that your friend the new mom is about to find out some stuff. And she will remember your gift with gratitude. And at next year’s baby shower, she’ll be the one handing out Panda Express gift cards and True Blood Seasons 1-4 on DVD. Mark my words.
