Finding the perfect wedding gift can be a difficult task.

If you’re not sure what to buy, though, it’s probably not a good idea to gift a hamper full of pregnancy tests, pacifiers and baby onesies.

It’s best to err on the side of caution that the bride and groom might not want kids - at least right away.

For this one bride, though, the gift was even more “insensitive”.

She took to Twitter to share her confusion over the gift she received.

“Someone gave me a pregnancy test, pacifiers, and onesies as a wedding gift and that is just super inappropriate?”

“Even if I wanted children (which I don’t) I am infertile and a gift like that is extremely insensitive.”

The tweet was shared on Facebook as part of a wedding shaming group.

The bride went on to explain that all of her guests knew she was infertile but she’s continually told she’s “selfish” for not having children.

She went onto explain that her Mormon religion was to blame and that having a big family is expected of her.

“They keep telling me over and over again, I’ll change my mind or that I’m being selfish and immature for not having kids. I have repeatedly asked them to not bring it up.”

Other users who were part of the Facebook group sympathised with the new bride.

One wrote: “Nothing would make that ok as a wedding gift.”

Not everybody understood the bride’s fury, though. Some people, who received baby-related gifts, said they found them extremely helpful.

Many agreed that yes, it is a helpful gift if you’ve specifically asked for it. However, if you’ve explained to everybody you don’t want children or are infertile, that’s a different story.

Perhaps next time it’s just worth sticking to the gift registry.
