I was making up a to-do list, and various templates have "have birth announcements printed" as a to-do. Personally, I loved looking through my baby book when I was a kid and seeing the announcement, but now that there is facebook and email, I feel like sending a printed announcement would seem like I was asking for gifts, since everyone will know I had the kiddo before they receive the announcement. I'm not interested in gifts; I just think the announcements are fun and look nice.
What do you think? Do you plan to mail announcements, or just email everybody, or what?
