I am a nanny and have been the nanny for the same two families for about 3 years. We are pretty close actually. The two families are related. I met them through my Fiance who worked with the mother of one of the families. Very nice people. So, they found out that after my mother passed I was not planning on having a shower. I just didn’t thing it was needed really. I was never that into the idea in the first place. I’m kind of shy and really sad to admit that I don’t have many friends to invite. My Fiance disagrees and says that I have plenty of friends but I question this as I am somewhat hard on myself and sometimes fight with a lack of self confidence.
Anyway, they have decided to throw me a party. I know it is usually a bridesmaids job but none of mine are in the position to. This doesn’t bother me in the least. I’m not a picky person. The two moms are determined to throw it. They have asked for my list of who to invite. I have maybe 20 people to invite. Which is strange because I have at least 100 people to invite to the wedding but they are all the FIs family who lives 10 hours away, much, much older than everyone, and basically people who would never go to a shower.
I feel very embarressed about not having any friends that live close to me to come to my shower. It literally feels me with anxiety that I’ll be turning in this wimpy list. Like I’m going to be putting on display my lack of social life. It makes me feel even more embarressed because I feel like I used to make friends so easily.
Is this bad that I’m only inviting like 20 people?
Also, because I am completely cluesless do you give a gift to those that throw you a party? I’m not really sure what to get these people as they are both well off as one is a doctor and one is a busniess owner.
I just feel so guilty that they are doing something so nice for me and also because I feel like it might be boring.
