My sweet SIL is throwing me a baby shower in my hometown, which will be lovely. However, it's 2,000 miles away from where I live. I'm wondering if anyone who has had an out-of-town shower would care to weigh in about what you did in regards to gifts? Did you let people buy stuff off your registry and just pay to ship it all home? Did you return everything, get a gift card, and re-buy it when you got home? Did you have people ship gifts to your house and put a picture of the gift you received in a card? Encourage people to give gift cards?I'd love any and all ideas from those with experience!
