    Wow so you are saying that they have a shower yet they are only registered for gift cards?  That is completely pointless in my opinion.  A shower is for gifts.

    Get them a gift you can afford. I think it’s very rude to register only for expensive things! They should be happy with whatever amount people choose to give, and if they are not, that’s their problem, not yours.

    I agree, buy a gift you can afford.  If they don’t appreciate it, they are very rude and brats!

    I’d go to the shower with a bottle of wine or something small, you dont owe them gifts and especially gift cards! Dont blow your budget, a gift shouldnt be a hardship!

    Go off registry.  Nothing says that you HAVE to buy from a registry — these are merely suggestions.  But, you might want to do it at a store where they are registered so that if it’s something they don’t want they can return it for a registry item (or to add to that gift card stash).

    Could you give them a gift card for a smaller amount, even if it is for $10? That is what I would do.

    Strange! I’d buy a bottle of wine. If you have the money, you can also get them a couple of wine glasses to go with it. But I wouldn’t buy someone a gift card for a shower, and certainly not a $200 one. Don’t feel bad; probably most people they invite wouldn’t do that either.
