No, unlike weddings, showers do not require a gift if you don’t attend.

@Bichon Frise:  I love your doggie picture.  🙂

I agree with PP, if you don’t attend the shower you don’t need to send a gift.  If it were a close friend or family member, I would, but for someone sorta distant like this, no, don’t feel obligated.

I always send a gift if I’m invited, regardless of whether or not I’m able to go. I suppose it isn’t necessary, but I think it’s a nice gesture.

For my shower I did receive lots of out of town gifts, but not even half of those who didn’t attend sent one so it is not manditory.
