I have beeen invited to 2 baby showers in October, both mums to be are friends with one another and will be attending each other's party. One friend is asking for a pack of nappies and the other are asking for gift vouchers. How much should the gift voucher be? Also one pack of nappies sound too cheap, should I just give them both a voucher for the same store on the same value?? How much would be reasonable?? And which store? Mothercare??

Gift vouchers??? That is very cheeky! I'd give her one for a nights babysitting grin

Nappies, I would go for one large packet it maybe a small box. It's tricky though as some babies just don't get on with particular brands. Pick a bigger size, maybe 3s as age will not need zillions of newborn nappies, they grow so fast.

She specifies the nappy size but I don't want to give nappies, I will give vouchers for both. Just not sure how much money to put in the voucher.

Hi have seen these phatstak on eBay they are scrapbooks that you can store all sorts of thinkgs in, cards pictures and you can have them personalised if you get them at the buy it now price. I have one for all my children's pictures.

OMG I can't believe your we're asked to give nappies or a voucher! Toys are quite a good thing to give. I would say £10 Voucher for mothercare would be fine. I was asked to contribute £10 to one friends group present once. I normally end up spending £15 per friend as I get a bit carried away!
