So this past weekend I was at home - I was throwing my sister a bridal shower. I told my parents that I am PG and of course my mom already wanted to start planning my shower with my sister (this is the first baby for both DH and I). The problem is all of my family and a number of my friends still live in MD while DH and I live in TN. Not that I am expecting a bunch of large gifts, but how do you handle potentially transporting a number of gifts? Obviously clothes and small things can fit in a spare suitcase but I definitely do not want to drive 16 hours just in case we get large items.
Is it wrong for my mom to suggest or let people know if items being purchased are too big to fit in a suitcase/easily taken with us on a plane then maybe shipping it to us directly would be the best way to give us those items?
