As the title suggests I've been invited to a friends baby shower and the invite has requested a contribution to be made towards the baby's nursery. This is not a close friend, we've never just hung out together but will normally be at the same social situations.
IF I was buying a gift I would normally spend between $25 to $30 as I like to new born shop and you can always pick up specials throughout the year. BUT only giving $25 to $30 seems really cheap. Although being a SAHM with another on the way we really couldn't afford to say give $50 towards the nursery.
I don't want to seem cheap so thinking of just buying a gift and ignoring the contribution request or is that just ignorant?
