I have a quick question. I still have a long ways off but was wondering what you thought of this. My mom and MIL and SIL will be giving me a shower in July to avoid peak hurricane season because I am due in Sept. Anyway my question is, it rude to ask them if I could get the favors ? I am not into all the baby foo foo stuff and wanted to get either personalized cookies or personalized M & M's(they are my favorite) We are planning on having a Baby-Q and I want to keep it simple with the favors and other things. Plus I know they will spend a good penny on the food since we are having a couples shower. I like to prepare and start saving and looking around and that's why I am asking. Thanks so much for your help and understanding with me asking so soon!!!
I don't think its rude. I am planning my first shower with my mom for june so i don't know all the ettiquette but i think its fine. Are they letting you be involved in other decisions? I'm sure if you tell them how you feel they wouldn't mind or you could all just go shopping together.

Thanks!! Well we have only talked about it in passing but they do ask what I want and don't want. I guess I just didn't want to step on their toes if they had different ideas.
It's not rude at all. I'm doing my own favors, because to me...those are for MY GUESTS, thanking them for being there and they should come from me.
I know everyone is spending a lot of money, throwing the shower and buying the gifts, I think the least I can do is take it upon myself to thank them with a favor that I did.
