How is buying a gift for a selfish, hysterical, rude person “rising above it”? More like “training a person to act as bitchy as she pleases because she never faces any consequences”.
You don’t owe anyone a gift, much less a horrible bridezilla-like person. You say you want to go through with performing the duties you agreed to, and I think that’s more than enough. Personally, if anyone EVER screamed at me at a freaking party at which I was performing unpaid support and labor for said screamer, I would be up outta there before the spittle fell. And I would return the bridesmaid’s dress with some extra aeration holes cut around the nipples, too, depending on what kind of things had been screamed.
But that’s me.

I’d do exactly what she did for you, nothing. If she dared bring it up I’d say you gave her what she gave you!

I would get her a gift, but not what she wants. Like a pointless kitchen utensil that costs like $10 bucks. He he oh! Office supplies! Lol

And misspell her name on the card!

If somebody makes me really mad and I’m feeling compelled by social convention to give a gift, they get something like a $25 gift card to Applebee’s (I think that restaurant is disgusting) or Jiffy Lube (hey, have half an oil change on me! And go to a store with “lube” in the name!).

I’d probably skip on the gift in this case. She didn’t give you one, sounds like you’ve already shelled out plenty of money and effort for her wedding, and you don’t even really want to preserve the friendship. Why gift a gift if your heart isn’t really in it? Just to be “propper”? Seems inauthentic to me. Give it a pass.
