I had my first shower this weekend, and received several gift cards. I have two other showers coming up in the next 3 weeks as well.

Would you use the gift cards to 1) buy pricier items you intended to buy and didn't put on the registry, 2) save them until after all the showers so you can buy any items on your registries that no one purchases, or 3) save at least part of them for buying diapers, wipes, formula in the first few months?

I'm usually not the type to hang on to gift cards so I'm torn over what to use them for!
