Should all the guests be told to bring gifts?

Yes, it is customary that all guests bring a gift to the shower. In fact the reason we call it a baby shower is because you’re meant to “shower” the Mommy-to-be with gifts. However, just because you have to bring a gift doesn’t mean you have to spend hundreds of dollars on a giant jungle gym. There are tons of great gifts you can bring from diapers to binkies to handmade mobiles to hang over the new baby’s crib.
