I would send a gift but not until the wedding date is closer that way an invite is out of the question and they won’t feel like they should or could invite you!!

@MrsEdamame:  I don’t think it’s ever wrong to send a wedding gift, even if you’re not invited to the wedding.  I’ve given shower gifts when I haven’t been invited to the shower.

If you feel awkward about sending your gifts early enough for the couples possibly to think that you may be hinting to receive invitations to their weddings, you could always wait until after the weddings take place before sending your gifts.

I agree – wait until close to the wedding or just after. You are very sweet to think of them and send a gift!

Wait until after the wedding, or just before. And then write something nice on the card so they don’t feel guilty for not inviting you lol.

Just send it. I had several people who weren’t invited to our wedding send a gift with well-wishes. I didn’t see it as invitation-fishing, just as being nice. I’ve done it for weddings before too.
