I would take that as confirmation that there’s no official plan to bring gifts.  Since it’s a bachelorette party, if you do want to give something, I’d say make it a (fairly inexpensive) crazy gag gift that she’d be embarrassed to open in front of grandma at the actual bridal shower.  🙂

I agree that it sounds like you have no obligation to bring a gift, but I would probably get a little something fun! My sister and I hosted the bachelorette party weekend for my other sister – some guests brought gifts and others did not, but it wasn’t awkward or anything.

A cute idea for a something that is not so scandalous (in case it’s not that kind of party) are those little bridal emergency kits. Like these:

Bridessentials Kit

Bride Essentials Survival Kit

Just a thought!

It’s fun getting gifts at the bach party. Bring something small if you feel weird about it.

Suggestions: Something fun she can wear that night? Like a flower or veil for her hair? Once we ‘made’ this girl wear BRIDE panties over her shorts. 🙂 It was fun. I got a boa and veil at mine. I also got this Bachelorette Party wine glass that was fun to drink out of during pregame. Also goodies are things for her to wear or use at the honeymoon! I also got this bride tank top that I love to work out in. Keeps me inspired?!

I am facing the same situation for my friend’s bachelorette party but I am giving her a personalized sweetheart silver plated compact from
