My good friend from college, whom I've known about 6 years now, is getting married in November. His fiance is having a bridal shower which I actually cannot attend [previous commitment]. The thing is, I still need to purchase a gift and I have really no idea what to get because I've only ever met/interacted with this gal for 5 mins!! [weird all in and of itself, but that's a different story!] I realize it's customary to simply purchase something from their registry, but nothing on the list is particularly special-- mostly utilitarian things like linens, dishware, etc etc. I always reserved the bridal shower gift as something very feminine and special but since I don't know her at all, it's be pretty awkward to buy her lingerie or something! haha. In the past I have given gift certificates to massages, bath products, a basket of yummy goodies, lingerie, etc. Now, I'm stumped. They don't have champagne flutes on their reg. and I know they don't HAVE any-- so I was thinking of buying a pair from our local Simon Pierce [really upscale glassware]. Is that good or just completely lame? Any other suggestions out there? Help!
