Gift card for boyfriend's cousin's bridal shower?

It really doesn’t matter if nothing on their registry is speaking to YOU; it’s a list of items the couple would like to have.  I personally hate gift cards at showers as brides like to show off their presents! It’s awkward to open an envelope with a check or gift card at a gift-giving event.


Maybe you could go off registry with some nice fluffy bath towels monogrammed with their new initials?

Usually gift cards are automatically added to your registry when you create it. If I’m being completely honest, as a bride whose shower is in 3 months, if you’re not buying off the registry I’d rather get cash than a gift card! At least it can be spent somewhere other than that specific store. The bride and groom can even bring it as spending money on their honeymoon if they’re having one. I think $50 is perfectly acceptable!

Mandolin slicer is a bit exciting ☺… Since they put gift card on their registry should be fine… $50 seems generous to me.
