Personally, I think a card is plenty. You are congratulating them and acknowledging their big day. Gifts are always optional.

I wouldnt send them even a card. sorry but they dont deserve it and I’m not really sure why you even invited them to your wedding. It sounds like the mutual friend is constantly pushing for you to make decisions that favor your husband’s “friend”

If I were in your situation, I would send a card wishing them well, just to be polite.

I would not send a gift. I would not want to do anything that could be misconstrued as an effort to maintain this “friendship”.

Then again, I would have cut the ties to this character long ago, including not inviting them to my wedding.

Send them the gift back with the card they got inside. Include a funny card with it and call it a day. You get a good laugh and you only have to pay for pastage and a card.

I second TheFurtureMcBride. I’d regift the gift they gave you back to them and keep the initial card in it but include a card to them that is very generic and not very thoughtful. In addition, i would stop listening to those mutual friends!!
