Never let someone else do your gift shopping for you. My mom picked up a gift on my behalf off my cousin’s gift registry. The store is at the far end of town and I couldn’t maket it down in time for the shower. She said it was $35., wrapped it up for me and I gave it to my cousin’s fiance at her shower. Mom also picked up a gift card on my behalf to same store, which I later gave for the wedding gift. The shower and wedding are over and out of curiosity I just checked her registery online (for the first time because its still there). I did so because my FI and I are considering registering there. I realized the gift I gave her was only $15.!!!! My mom obviously made a mistake. Shoot. I look like a complete cheeeeeaaaaapo. Is there anyway to fix this? Oh crap.

Could you possibly send her something else as well, and apologise for the mix-up?

Maybe its on sale now and wasn’t when she purchased it? That happens on Macy’s website all the time!

Make sure for the wedding you give them a very nice gift 🙂
It’s really not something u should worry abt.

Honestly I don’t think it is that big of a deal, especially since your cousin registered for that specific item (right?). Who is to say that you could afford more?

I don’t think $15 is cheap! That’s a very reasonable price for a wedding or shower gift. It’s usually how much I spend on people.

honestly? probably on sale. And if it was on her registry, then she obviously wanted it. Don’t stress about it.

If I was the bride I don’t think I would have even given that a second thought and deff would not have thought you were a cheapo!! Don’t stress about it, and maybe give a little more for her wedding if you’re still feeling bad.

Don’t feel bad! If she had it on her registry, of course she wanted it! I know several couples who put less expensive items on their registry so people who want to give a gift can afford to do so. What is it that your mother bought/you gave?

I wouldn’t have given it a second thought if I were the bride. I never cared how much people spent on me, I just wanted to know that they acknowledged and cared about such a big important moment in my life. In fact, if anything I felt uncomfortable when people got me really expensive gifts.
