One gift should do the trick. Maybe a card for their card box at the wedding?

Yeah I agree, bring a card to the wedding, but don’t forget to leave a note with the gift when it shows up at their door so they know who it’s from!!!

I agree with bluespurrs.  Just bring a card to the wedding.

I don’t think its improper to show up with no gift/card, as long as you’ve already sent something.  That’s just me.  I’d send it a few weeks before the wedding.  A card for the box can’t hurt either.

I agree with PP> One gift for the wedding is enough. The card just tops it off.

re: your first question – the gift alone is fine.

re: the second – no, you don’t need to spend more because you didn’t attend.  The gift is enough and will be appreciated especially because you didn’t attend.

no, just spend the same as you would have spent. a lot of couples these days prefer to have their gifts shipped prior to the wedding anyway. that way, nobody has to worry about transporting tons of gifts from the reception home. this duty usually falls to the MOB, FOB, or Bridesmaid or Best Man. also, if you send the gift in advance, the couple can get a head start on their thank you notes. all around, it’s a great idea.
