worst babyshower gift?!

What was the WORST baby shower gift that you recieved during your babyshower(s)?
I wouldn't say that I got any "bad" gifts, but I did have friends that showed up without a gift for the babies.
I don't want to come off "ungrateful", but I wouldn't go to a babyshower without a gift! I thought the whole point was to shower the baby with gifts?!

oh well! ;)

What are some horror stories you have from your babyshower?!

    mine wasn't bad and everyone brought gifts. However, my babys aunts showed up dressed like hookers, ass hanging out, mid drift tops, and cleavage out for the world to see. Then one starts telling me about "beatin this bitches ass" the night before. It was a little uncomfortable.

    No gift issue.... Just My husbands ex being there as a guest with her toddler!!! My MIL threw me a shower and invited her assuming it would be ok. Hmmm it wasn't!!!

    their no longer around. Me and baby's bio dad split up, and he and his family have no interest in ds. Been almost five years now. It's okay, they made me see how "you are the company you keep" really works.

    And I now have an amazing dh who loves ds! Going thru step parent adoption next year.

    And btw, I agree, I'd never show up to a shower without a gift.

    I didn't get anything "bad."

    But I also didn't expect anyone to bring gifts.

    I don't take gifts to showers. I usually take one when I go see the baby at the house.

    Not a bad gift, bad bad sentiment. Husbands aunt gave me a bunch of bibs, so that I would put them on dd and keep her clothes nice so I could give them to her dd who was having a little girl due 2 months after my dd. She told me this at the shower. She even went through everything I got and inventoried what she wanted me to give her dd, and as I opened presents told me what she wanted and even what she thought was ugly...
