1) Totally get the superstition thing – I’m half Chinese.  Except my grandma still gives me and DH red envelopes, even though we’ve been married almost 3 years…I’m not complaining lol.

2) Don’t be embarassed.  Give your cousin the gift(s) when you see her.  I would just say, “I’m so sorry that I didn’t bring/give you a gift at your wedding, and that I couldn’t attend other cousin’s wedding, so I just wanted to give this to you now!”  Would you be able to just give her a couple red envelopes?  It might be annoying to send her back with 2 big gifts, especially if she has to pay extra to ship them back home with her on the plane.

rayne:  Wow that sounds really challenging, but I think you could definitely take this opportunity to give your cousin a gift. I would honestly just tell her what all you said here but maybe more concisely, and let her know that you really wanted to get her a present, so, 3 years later, here it is.
