I had a lovely shower last weekend that was put on by FI’s aunts and female cousins.
The present that one of his cousins gave us was a box full of kitchen stuff. One thing was a grill skillet, corn holders, corn brush, measuring spoons, measuring cups, a basting brush, spatula and some towels. All very nice. However, we had already received new measuring spoons/cups at my other shower so those weren’t needed. In addition, there was no gift receipt or indication as to where they were bought for us to possibly return/exchange.
Would you just keep the items and give them to family/friends to have? Or donate them, along with other items that are being replaced with new things bought? We are definitely not ungreaful, just have no need for more than one measuring cup/spoon set!

I’d just keep them. We have several sets of measuring cups/spoons and two sets of kitchen utensils. As long as you have room just keep them.

Kacie209: This happens no matter who the shower is for. You can either donate them to charity. Do a no reciept store credit exchange if you know where they were purchased (by the brand if it’s a specific store item) depdning on some stores, if the item was from your registery you can use your registery as a reciept and return the item for cash or store credit.
You may just want to bite the bullet and call your relatives and explain the situation that you received duplicate gifts and they may be able to let yo uknow where they were purchased so you can return accordingly.
Or otherwise return the registry items and keep the items without the gift reciept if you haven’t opened the other ones already.

I’d keep them. I have two sets of measuring cups and measuring spoons – it comes in very useful when I’m baking!

I just had my shower as well as got doubles of alot of things including small kitchen utensils, measuring cups & bakeware.
I plan to keep most of it [at least whatever I can fit in drawers] and donate or give away the rest.

I think 2 sets of measuring cups and spoons can be very handy. I’d just keep them.

I’ll talk with FI about it tonight, just to see his thoughts. We really don’t have the room – that is the only problem. And, we already have used the other ones we received. It is a nice set, and the cups some with an egg separater – which is kind of cool. I had originally put one on our list but took it off thinking I can easily separate them on my own.
Thanks for all the input!
We got a lot of doubles of bath towel sets, as JCP failed to update whenever someone bought them. At least we can get store credit and buy other items that we want from there; it is the least popular registry we have.
