I have never met this girl and I literally haven’t seen my friend for 6 years! Doesn’t this seem odd to you?
So….. if you havent seen this guy in 6 years, how exactly is he still your friend/how do you keep in touch? through email/FB?<br />I wouldnt really be too concerned…. if they are not in your life I dont think anyone will be holding a grudge lol. I would maybe feel somewhat similar and send a very small gift with a card …. If you havent seen this guy in 6 years and have never met the finace why the heck are they inviting you to the shower? That does seem odd to me and seems like a total gift grab.<br /><br />I could understand the shower if you were like besties with this guy and you were frequently in eachothers lives but….<br /> <br />If you want to make sure he knows you care you can just send a heartfelt card alone or with a gift worth 25-50 bucks max off their registry.
However, I have to agree with shanbp: that the fact that you’ve not seen this guy for 6 years and never meet his wife to be is complicating the matter. You want to remain friends, yet there seems to be very little/no interaction. If I were you I would stick to the book that you’ve already got and just write a nice card to go along with it.
I would only send a wedding gift – the amount is up to your comfort level. For me it always depends on how close I am to the person getting married.
