Sorry, but no. While we all have more uses for cash than we do for 32 fleece blankets, you’d be out-of-line for requesting it. No one is obligated to give you (or baby) a gift, so what to give should be totally left up to the gift giver. (Help them out by registering.) Saving for something specific? Well, in that case, it’s okay to throw money out as an option if—and only if—someone specifically asks what you need.
