I would send along a nice wedding card and with a giftcard inside for a store which they have in their area. This way you don’t have to worry about shipping costs or about picking out something that they need. I wouldn’t worry about it….. they say you have a year to send gifts, so late is always better than never!

I have the SAME PROBLEM (sudden realization of no gift) I feel terrible and really want to get my FI’s cousin a gift but we’re PAST the one year mark.  And they’re coming all the way from California to the East Coast for our wedding.  Maybe I’ll just send something small with a heartfelt apology?

I agree with MsB’s suggestion…go ahead and send a giftcard!  Even though it might be obvious that you forgot, at least you remembered.  It would be worse if you didn’t send anything at all.

I never got one of my really good friends a wedding gift-I was in a bad place personally and I only stayed for half of her wedding because I was such a wreck about something that was going on. I’ve apologized-it’s too late to send a gift it is past the one year mark s. she is in my wedding and i told her i would pay for her dress/alterations/ and all that she would have to py for my wedding. I don’t know if this makes up for not getting a gift but my offer was genuine and I feel guilty about it all the time.

I like the Gift Card idea. I’m not sure about how this would be taken but you could say you had "wedding brain" and it slipped your mind. I’m sure she’d understand and I doubt they’ll think it’s a gift grab! People honestly forget! No biggie!!! 🙂 **bonus points for you for remembering and realizing how it might appear!!

Most large banks have the Visa Gift cards.  I would get them one of those, so they can use  it where ever they want…Target, restaurant, etc.  I bank at Wells Fargo and US Bank and I know you can get them there.  I think it would be nice to get an unexpected wedding gift after the wedding!
