Today's social dilemma came from email I received and I was glad to talk about it. It's about gender reveal parties. Denise wrote and said, Jaime, I'm a little upset and I would love it if you could bring this up on your social dilemma. I was recently invited to a gender reveal party. I thought it was just that, a way for the couple to reveal the gender of their baby. It was at their home so I just brought myself and got ready to celebrate with them. However when I got to the party, there were others there who had brought gifts. I thought gifts were reserved for the actual shower. But others at the party said you're supposed to bring non gender related gifts to a gender reveal party like diapers and wipes and things like that. I had no idea and I felt awful not having anything. There were a few others who hadn't brought anything but others did. So I'm just curious, are you supposed to bring a gift to a gender reveal party? Please help me out. I will be listening. Oh and please don't use my real name. I don't want to upset the people who had the party. Thanks! Denise. So no of course, Denise is not her real name but what do you think? I think you should not have to bring a gift to a gender reveal party. Afterall, there will be a shower for that. However, I can't imagine going anywhere empty handed so I would probably bring something small like onesies or something like that. What about you? What do you think? Yes to a gift at gender reveal or no? Let me know on the TRY facebook page.
