Two gifts?

Fine! Ya whiners! Here's my update, it's a question.

Am I supposed to get two gifts for my ex-niece that is getting married this summer? One at the Bachelorette party and one at the Bridalshower? The party is this weekend, they are planning on my being the one to pick the bars and stuff. Yeesh!

DD is in the wedding and they've asked me to make the bridal parties necklaces.... which I still need to find out which necklace they were talking about.

Any whooooooo, two gifts? Or just a gift at the Bridalshower?

Hey, I'm going to a bachelorette party this weekend, too. We're going to Asia SF which is some swanky, trendy club in the city.
As for the gifts, we buy one for every stupid party that we go to. We'll give something small at the party on Saturday, we gave a gift at the bridal shower and then we will also give them a wedding gift. But this is for Michelle's brother's wedding so we tend to give a little more for the siblings.
Email Michelle and ask her. I usually leave her in charge of the gift stuff.

Yes, I would give a small gift at the bachelorette party, only because Ayla is in the wedding, so you must be fairly close. Otherwise, if you aren't particularly close, I tend to thing bachelorette gifts are optional. Buying the bride a few drinks, in that case, is usually good enough in my world. If it was a big high falutin' thing, I'd think differently.

I too would get two, but nothing elaborate. Perhaps some of those penis straws they have for the drinks. That would be a tasteful gift, yes?

I'm with Kim on this one...if you do anything at the Bachelorette party, I'd make it something silly and fun or a few drinks or something.

Boo! I'm trying to find my penis straws and my penis squirt gun I got at my Bachelorette party. *grin*

My penis water bottle came in handy. It was funny to ask bartenders to fill it up. I'm sure they weren't quite as amused.

And me? No hangover.

I agree with the cheesehead. She's so smart!

The only bachelorette I ever went to was my own, and that consisted of my two bridesmaids taking me club hopping in Norfolk. They covered my entrance fees and bar tab and let me party up a storm. That was gift enough. :-)

Oh, wait, I forgot, one of my bridesmaids got married six months later and her sister and I took her out to the slots for her bachelorette, so we paid her first $20 in quarters, plus her drinks and let her go at the machines. She won enough to play for quite awhile.

Anyhoo, I think gifts for the bachelorette are optional, besides the silly gag gifts and booze.

I don't think I've ever been to a bachelorette party. Come to think of it, it's been about 15 years since I've even been to a wedding so I guess I'm not the one to ask about the present thing. When in doubt, listen to Weltek. She's smart.

Penis straws? *giggle* Do they come in different sizes?

I'll agree with everyone else, since they seem to have answers (whereas I don't).

I do like the idea of some fun penis type party favor gifts.

My favorite penis straws were the "sexy sippers" someone purchased. I just liked the title "sexy sippers."

According to Boo:

Tasteful? OMG, I am rolling!

I think the penis theme *giggle* would be a cute idea. However, when Karen and I get hitched, please don't bring the penis. Well, unless it's already attached!! I gave up penis awhile ago....we're drinking from plastic breasts, dammit.
