I think a nice card with a personal note is enough.  There’s no obligation to send a gift.

I was in a similar situation and sent a nice card with well wishes. However, when it was time for my wedding she sent a shower gift even though she missed the shower and she and her husband came to our wedding giving us a generous gift. I felt really bad for not sending them a gift. Just putting that out there.

I would give her a gift, even if it’s something small. Unless you’re really not in a position to give one I think one should always err on the side of too generous.

I nice card is definitely enough. I might send her something really cheap off her registry- like something $5ish.
