A very common question of cash gift registry etiquette is: How do I handle a gift when I’ve been invited to a wedding, birthday party, graduation celebration, bridal shower, baby or baby shower and I can’t go? The short answer is this: you do not have to send a gift if you RSVP “No.”
A great alternative for those who prefer to send a gift even when you RSVP “No” is to contribute to their cash gift registry. This helps to make a lot of people a little less stressed out!
If you’re stumped for how to handle gift-giving occasions and general etiquette situations, a cash gift registry is a simple tasteful solution.
