Why is the same friend having two showers in the same place anyway?  I think one gift is appropriate.

Same friend TWO different bridal showers? I’m confused as to why there are two and why you would be invited to both? I’ve heard of a family/friends shower and then maybe co-worker throwing a little mini shower together at work or something.

Either way I’d only send one gift whether it’s one expensive item or a few less expensive items.

One gift is enough. 

I had 2 bridal showers too and one of my friends made it to both.  I would not have expected her to bring 2 gifts.

@ctocchi2:  If these two showers are both being held in the same city with the same guest list, it’s just weird.  Either way, you only need to send one gift.

@Christy42213:  Many brides have more than one shower. Showers are hosted by the bridesmaids, the FMIL, work colleagues, church families, etc etc

 

@ctocchi2:  One gift will suffice. If you really want  her to have something from you to open at each shower, send her a two part gift -towels for one shower, face cloths and tub mat at the other.

@julies1949:  Sure, but usually there’s a reason.  Like one is hosted by the grandmother who lives in CT, and one is hosted by the MOH who lives in the bride’s homestate of VA, and maybe you get another small one hosted by co-workers.  But usually those 3 showers would have different guest lists because the same guests couldn’t attend all 3.  That’s all I was saying.

@ctocchi2:  One gift is fine or you could do a two-part gift Something like “morning & night” with a coffee maker for one and tea cups for other? Or “Entertaining vs Just the Two of Us” with a board game for one and wine glasses for the other? Just look over the registry and I’m sure there’s something you could do.

I was invited to both the “friend” shower and the “family” shower when a good friend had a baby. I ended up making a small gift for the friend one and brought the “real” gift for the family one. It’s really up to you.
