My cousin wanted to have one. I didn’t have a problem with it, but the older generations (our moms) did. Needless to say, the presents were wrapped and she opened them in the traditional fashion.

What do you say on the invitation? Don’t wrap the gifts?

@kmarie719:  +1 I like the idea of calling it eco-friendly instead of having the gifts on “display”

@mchitt329:  I completely agree. I think calling is eco-friendly sounds better.

I went to one where they asked us to bring gifts in clear wrap, which seemed very wasteful and was really hard to find! I went to three stores before I found a place that carried it!

I never heard it worded that way, but I seen a few people show up normally to baby showers without wrapping it. I never seen it at a bridal shower.

My only worry about this, is those who can afford more than others. I’ve always been self concious about this on both sides. I think I’d feel out of place, if it came out I had purchased the cheapest gift(as everyone sees the registry), or, if I unwrapped that gift, I think it would be possibly embarrassing for that guest.

This is probably why I intend to just do a kitchen and bath shower. Everything is cheap! LOL!
