If you were invited to your bils wedding shower and money was tight what would you do?Would you go ahead and buy a gift and go or not go and wait until you got a little more money so you could buy a nicer gift to give him and his bride to be?
I would buy what you can afford. If money is tight, be creative. I think romantic baskets are such a cute gift and you can shop around to get things on sale or clearance. For instance, a basket with a red & white checked table cloth, spaghetti, sauce, parmesean cheese, candles, matches, candle holders, and a cd of romantic music. With smart shopping $25 -$30 should do something like that and it's very cute and thoughtful. Another would be a popcorn tub with a couple DVDs, popcorn, candy, sodas, and a cuddly blanket. But I would absolutely attend the shower. No matter how much you can afford, having you there to celebrate should be more important to them than the amount spent on the gift.
Well I was recently invited to a babyshower and I couldn't afford to go (would have had to buy a gift and pay for a sitter---just too expensive right now) and I just pretended that I forgot (another time I said the kids were sick) for that I will just bring her a gift when the baby is born.
If it was family....I would just use my credit card, and pray that the money comes in...lol!
