@roxymalone:  LOL, in a lot of cases I’d rather go for a gyn exam than to a shower! I’m just not a small-talk/chit-chat/strangers kind of person, so I feel for the OP! And when I have a lot going on socially, I get overwhelmed, I need down time.

OP, I wouldn’t go personally. I would send a gift to make nice, but I’d be like “Oh, I’m so sorry, I already have plans that day.” Plans to be not at your shower, basically. I hate showers though, I find them boring. They aren’t really a party in my experience, they’re a sit-around-and-watch-someone-open-gifts marathon at most I’ve been to.

I have no shame about declining invitations I don’t want to go to.

Why get them the same gift they got you? They might think you are regifting it to them.

It seems that you are invited because your husband is? Sounds like a couple’s shower.  Also it seems you were invited because they JUST went to your wedding, so they were thinking of you?

I’m antisocial and would groan if I got invited just because of that. But being antisocial, I then recognize that I’m lucky someone actually invited me antisocial ass to something.

I don’t think you should feel obligated to go! I know I sure wouldn’t!

@Leemarie:  Oh, okay. they might enjoy that, since they picked out something similiar for you.
