Get her something inexpensive.  Khol’s has adorable baby clothes for dirt cheap prices.  It’s understandable that you are trying to save every penny, but how often do you hear about baby showers?

I think it’s more rude of them to invite you to the shower in the first place especially since I wouldn’t consider you two to be friends, really. Maybe send a $20 gift card for the store she’s registered at a send a nice card? 

ETA: But you’re definitely not required to send a gift, so I don’t think it would be wrong if you didn’t.

@AshleyR83:  Darn… where is she registered at?  Probably Babies r Us?

@AshleyR83:  you make a good point.. If you’re not close with her, then don’t worry too much about it.  Maybe just get a pretty card.

@AshleyR83:  Sounds like the perfect occasion for a very nice card of congrats.  🙂  I would not feel bad about doing that…at all.

I would send a card and say congratulations, plus sorry you won’t be able to make it.

Write a nice message and pop it in the mail.

I agree with PP. I would decline and the most I would send would be a greeting card.

I was in a similar boat recently where the couple hosted their own baby shower and mass emailed the evite to literally everyone in their email contact list. I hadn’t spoken to the couple in about two years and even when we were in school together, we didn’t really speak to each other. It was your classic gift grab, as defined by Urban Dictionary. I didn’t even bother RSVPing.

I wouldn’t send a gift; she’s not really your friend.
