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.
