Baby Shower Gift

Posted By dexaholic on Jul 19, 2010 at 6:05AM

I am going to a baby shower at the end of August and was asked to bake and bring the cake, which I am excited about and  more than happy to do!

I was also told that everyone is going to collect money and get the mother-to-be a large gift, like a high chair or car seat or stroller. As a single girl on a semi-strict budget, I'm not sure I want to give money towards the group gift, plus make the cake.

Would it be rude if I didn't contribute to the gift and just brought the cake?
