The Worst Baby Gifts Ever

Bumpies shared the most ridiculous baby gifts they’ve received. We hope these came with gift receipts included!

“I received six very nice, warm fleece blankets, but my baby was born in July.” -- SarahRae812

“Candle holders. My mother-in-law decided to buy us a ton of decorative stuff for the nursery, which included a set of matching votives holders for the baby’s room. I don’t think we’ll be lighting any candles in the nursery anytime soon.” -- jcapelluti

“My grandma gave us a piggy bank that said, ‘Celebrating Your Christening.’ Only we’re not religious, and our son won’t be getting christened.” -- angiekillaire

“Unwanted parenting advice -- that gift keeps on giving long after the shower ends!” -- tdeddington

“My aunt gave us an obviously used Mickey Mouse crib bumper that was very faded, slightly stained and smelled of must. Gross.” -- bookkitten

“Someone gave us a gift bag full of dollar-store items -- shirts, pants, bottles, bibs, etc. I know they thought the cheaper the item, the more they could get us, but the problem was the items were terrible quality.” -- toadstool

“Clothes for the first year are awesome. Clothes past that (especially if you live in a small apartment or may be moving) are a pain to store!” -- Shaynnon

“Stuffed animals annoy me. We already have about a billion. Really don’t need anymore, thanks.” -- ITeachK

“I registered for gender-neutral things. My friend gave us three outfits complete with socks and hair bows for a girl. Of course we had a boy, so now I have to go and return them.” -- EllenK11

“A coworker gave me a homemade blanket. She didn’t knot the layers together so I actually had to come home and finish making the blanket.” -- Mrsl
