MrsSapphire :  Gift baskets are expensive, unless you go someplace like TJ Maxx and select just a few foods, and either put them in a basket you already own, or wrap them up nicely.  I would feel too embarrassed to give a gift card for less than $25.

All of my bridesmaids are married now, but I gave gifts of roughly the same value to all of them – because they are close friends whose friendships I treasure & whose marriages I was thrilled to celebrate.  I didn’t think to give more or less based on the price/ scale of their weddings. 


I’m honestly shocked that this is even a question, OP. Give a gift out of love and joy, not to equal out the dollars spent or not spent on your wedding vs her elopement.

mangococonut :  no gift for an elopement. Bring a congrats card and bottle of wine to their barbecue. Done!
