I think according to strict etiquette you are supposed to bring a gift, BUT, as a bride- I doubt I’d even notice.

If this girl is your friend, I’m sure she’ll understand your situation and not expect you to get two separate gifts. Also, Miss Powder Puff’s idea of a new monogrammed stocking might be nice.

If I were you I would do what I could afford, if you can’t afford it then I wouldn’t buy anything and the bride should understand your circumstances after throwing you a lingerie shower.But also just check to see if there were some affordable items from her registry that you could buy for her shower, but I would keep it small. But saying that you have paid for a lot of things already and I would also not dip into the funds that I’ve been saving for Christmas.

How about a great card.  At my bridal shower I got a gift from 2 of my 4 bridesmaids.  I brought gifts to give each of my bridesmaids as hostesses — it was an honor to have them in my wedding and I did not expect gifts from them (after buying bm dresses, shoes, etc…);however, I did feel it was important for ME to give THEM gifts for hosting.
