bottom line- $50 is VERY generous for a shower gift.  i wouldn’t expect that.

@frustrated: i definitely agree, the figure should not have been told to you- i don’t really see the point of that, but i think just move on from here and forget it happened.

I understand that you’re hurt and I would absolutely feel the same way but like another has said, nothing productive can come of it. Maybe there was a sale, like others said. Maybe those two have grown closer recently? I don’t know. I hope you feel better about it soon!

I really don’t know what to say to this other than I’m glad you realize how ridiculous it is, and that the entitlement factor of showers and weddings sometimes really turns me off to participating.

@KatyElle: I don’t think she’s as upset about how great the gift is, or that she think she’s entitled to a great gift, but if that means that her friend doesn’t value the relationship as much as she thought she did.

@kingytobe: Which I still maintain, is not a very grateful response when people are buying you gifts and showing up to celebrate your life choices. When I do gifts I go by “What would this friend particularly like/need” rather than being conscious of what I’m spending on each friend. I just hope they are happy I’m throwing any money their way, because I don’t have much!

@KatyElle: I completely agree with you. Gifts should always be about sentiment, not how much they cost. Sorry if my response didn’t come off that way.

I’d be a total hypocrite if I told you to not care, because I’d be miffed, too! Unfortunately, emotions run high when it comes to weddings/showers/money/etc. If I were you, I would try to just put this out of your mind and focus on having an awesome time at your wedding.
