I buy everyone a gift (I’m at 50 gifts and counting in the wrapping procoess) but in this circumstance, no. Your best friend should have a gift for her if she’s a friend right?  This person is just an acquaintance.

$10 for starbucks or something along that line. In my eyes, it definitely doesn’t have to be the same price as your friends.

No, I wouldn’t go out of my way for this girl. If anything, a token small candle, christmas socks or some candy is nice so she can open something too, but I wouldn’t stretch my budget for a gift card for a stranger.

I agree with the above posters in that you don’t need to break the bank for a stranger, but a small gift could be a nice gesture to make sure everyone feels included.  A small gift card for starbucks or a lotion or candle will be nice enough, I’d think.  I guess just think about how you would feel being her and what would help you feel included.

HuysuzAyi33:  Yes, I would definitely buy her a gift, but I don’t think it needs to be on par with the others. As other posters have suggested, a $10 starbucks gift card, a christmas candle, christmas socks, or some candy would all work. Great suggestions. 

I think it would be ridiculously awkward for you to exchange gifts with your best friend and her husband without giving this girl ANYTHING.
