A buddy of mine and his wife are having their first child. They decided that they're not going to have a shower yet they created a gift registry and generically informed everybody via Facebook. Part of me is being ghetto and does not want to buy them anything if they aren't even going to attempt a shower. The other part of me is like just get them something crappy like a $40 gift card to Babies R Us. Is it ok for people to forgo the event and just hold their hand out asking for the gifts that usually accompany the party?
