I received an invitation to a bridal shower for one of my friends. Unfortunately I already have plans and cannot attend. I sent a gift in the past when I couldn’t attend a bridal shower and it arrived broken into pieces, so I am a little paranoid about sending nice items in the mail. Is sending a nice card with a gift card to one of the stores she is registered at OK?

I think that’s fine. You could also order directly from the store and have it shipped to her, since they tend to package them really well, and she could exchange it if it ended up broken!

@pinotgrigio: Yes, a gift card is fine. Like a PP said, you could also send it straight to her house from the store. I’ve received gifts from people like that and nothing arrived broken

When I couldn’t attend my friends shower earlier this year I got items off their registry sent straight from the store. Gift card totally works, too!

I had the previous gift sent straight from the store and it arrived broken, that’s why I was thinking a gift card would provide some peace of mind 🙂 The last thing I’d want is for her to open a broken gift at her shower.
