drdeebee:  No, you don’t need to bring them to the shower and you don’t need to wrap them.

You could send a list to your sister so if they are doing a game, like Baby Bingo, she can read out the presents that were shipped directly to you.

No, you definitely do not have to wrap or transport the presents. In fact, I think it’d be pretty weird if you did.

Here’s a parenting advice column covering exactly this situation:


The gist of it is, you don’t need to bring them to the shower let alone wrap them.

I have seen people who take pictures of gifts that were sent to them pre-shower and display the pictures at the event, I don’t think I will do that but it’s an option.

drdeebee:  Nope. I had this question w/my bridal shower and I did neither. I just sent a thank you card immediately and then said thank you again at the shower.

No and no. Just send thank you cards for gift and/or attendance after the shower.

We’ve got the same shower date and it’s coming up soon! 🙂

I have my registry via Babylist and I’m going to write Thank You cards for hand-me-downs as well as gifts from my registry. An aunt bought me a breast pump from my registry via Amazon and we’ve received it. I will verbally thank her as well when I see her at the shower. Since I offered to help out with favours, I will also be handing out Onesie sugar cookies that I will plan to bake & decorate.

A lot of gifts were shipped to me prior to my shower and I definitely didn’t bring them to the shower with me but almost everyone gave me a card at the shower itself. I acknowledged their gift when I opened the card at the shower. I don’t think you need to send a thank you card until after the shower since it’s coming up so soon.
