Some people think that asking guests to bring gift cards might be less attractive – but the “gift card baby shower” is more accepted due to the fact that it makes sense for the expectation to moms who come from out of town and can’t easily bring all their gifts home.

If you’re only asking for baby shower gift cards due to the fact that you don’t trust your family, friends and loved ones to buy nice gifts – then, yes, that might be a little rude. But this is the call of the mom-to-be! In the end, it’s up to him what he wants.

Here are some ideas for wording when asking guests to bring a baby shower gift card:

  1. “Instead of traditional gifts, parents asked that guests bring gift cards to help build their nursery and baby collection. Any denomination is appreciated and they’ve registered with several retailers to make it easy .”
  2. “In lieu of physical gifts, expectant parents greatly appreciate the gift of a gift card to use toward the purchase of baby items. Gift cards from any store of your choice are welcome.”
  3. “Parents-to-be are excited to start their baby registry and you’ll love contributing by bringing a gift card to any baby-related store. They promise to put it to good use!”

It’s important to make sure the wording is polite and respectful, while still clearly communicating the request for the gift cards. You can include this information in the baby shower invitation, or in a separate insert.
