@kimmo416:  if it’s any conselation, I love my pyrex bowls.

I think you’re being generous.  She shouldn’t expect you to give her a gift at both showers.

I think its perfectly fine!! Its something she registered for so its something she wants/needs. I’m sure she knows that attending two showers requires you to spend more than you normally would. I wouldn’t be worried.

I am always the person at baby showers that gives car seat bases, crib liners, etc when everyone else is giving cute clothing. Someone has to get the practical stuff!

Dude, I love pyrex! I’d be thrilled to get the ones on my registry. 😀 One of my friends got me a meat tenderizer hammer thing and a lemon zester. Totally awesome. I think you’re being way generous. I’m in college right now and FI foots our bills too, so I totally know how money can be. With our wedding, we set a limit of $60 per attendant, which, on here, is totally looked down upon, but we just can’t go crazy and spend $800 on everyone lol!

Also, I got towels and a skillet for my bridal shower. It was awesome. XD Stuff that you can get and think of who gave it to you every time you use it totally rules. 😀

@kimmo416:  It’s absolutely not lame at all! I loved my pyrex kitchenware (pre-divorce), and have some on my current registry, just in case. I think it’s a great gift, especially if it was from the registry. 🙂

I think it’s acceptable to split the amount. Honestly, I think most people do; they just don’t necessarily say it aloud. I think it’s a great gift and it’s nice that it’s still something she registered for.

I’m amazed you’re getting her a gift for both showers! I definitely didn’t expect or want gifts from anyone in the bridal party. They were doing so much for us already!

If she judges you by what you can/ can’t afford, she’s not a good friend. Don’t feel crappy!

I’m sure what’s most important to her is that you’re there to support her in this special time. Rock that Pyrex!!!

pyrex is fantastic. most of mine is in boxes, as we aren’t using it. but i think it’s a great gift. cause you’re right- you need all the practical stuff too!
