So for a gift when I was preggo with easton 2 good friends chipped in and got me a nice bassenette bc I didn't have one....now that DH and I are pretty sure we are done with babies (95%) I want to sell it...We're moving in a few month...it's big and we could use the money since dh is military and the gov't isn't sure they are going to have a budget...every little bit counts....but part of me feels guilty....Is it ok to sell this gift? Should I feel guilty? HELP
I would say it's ok. Unless there was some sentimental value to the exact one that your friends got you, then I'd say it's ok to sell. You used it and it was a gift. If your friends ever ask about it, you can be like "I loved it and used it a lot, but now it's time to give it to someone else who can also use it". If I was your friend, I would understand. At some point, everyone gets rid of their baby stuff, most of which was probably a gift. The other thing you could do if you don't really need the money is offer it back to them if they have babies or will have babies soon.
Unless it was like, your friends bassinet when they were a baby, I think its ok. What would your friends expect you to do? Keep a bassinet forever when you don't have a baby? You'll remember forever that they got it for you, you just don't have to keep it forever,lol.
Nope...One of the girls that went in on it she and I lost touch and the other one is completely done with kids....and it was a new in box bassinette no sentimental value to either of them...so looks like I'll be selling it...thanks
