I don’t really get it but it seems like harmless fun to me. Also, can it be considered gift grabby if its the host asking for the gifts and not the person receving them?

catattack1990 :  I’ve got more curiosity than a house full of cats. I’d call/text that bride, strike up a conversation about her upcoming wedding (OMG, so excited for you and fiance!), and figure out a way to ask about the 100+ kitchen utensils. Are they donating them to a women’s shelter? Are they using them as decoration in their home? Are they into a bit of kinky sex where they like to spank each other with a different wooden spoon each day of the month?

I have SO. MANY. QUESTIONS.

Horseradish :  I’ve seen that at a couple of bachelorette parties (which was fun!) but not at a shower, which…yeah seems awkward at best.

I wouldn’t do it and no, it’s not it’s in good taste to ask people for something more on top of another gift.

This seems harmless and I bet the only people who think this is gift grabby are people who’ve been on this site too long. This site perpetuates the idea that gifts are bad and being a bridesmaid is a huge burden.

Yea. That’s very gift grabby…. Especially if they’ve already had a Jack and Jill.

slomotion :  I disagree as I have loads of spatulas.  My SO is always making fun of me.  But he bought me a seasonal one as a gift once.  They’re fun cute and cheap and I always use lots when I’m cooking or baking. I impulse buy them. 

Maybe im a spatula hoarder?  I should have an all spatula shower. 😎

Never heard of this 🤔 maybe they’ll secretly exchange most the items for cleaning supplies and little gadgets from the dollar store 😆omg.

sharkey38 :  i actually could totally get into an all spatula shower! As part of a wedding gift to an upcoming wedding I personalized a spatula that reads “mr & mrs… a perfect mix”.
