Post subject: Wedding gift or not?
My cousin is getting married at the end of December. She invited OH and i, and my mum and dad. My OH wont go (not that i'm fussed) as he doesnt even know my cousin or anyone else on that side of my family for that matter. i haven't saw her since i was about 16. I have her on FB and she sent us a wee gift when i gave birth but apart from that we're really not close. My dad is her dads brother and he avoids him at all costs as he has treated my dad badly in the past so him and my mum arent going either. But i feel quite guilty about it and was thinking whether it would look better if i got them awee present or even just a gift card. What do you think? Is it weird to give a gift when you have said you arent going to their wedding?

I would send a little something, since she bought you something for your babe.
I am now closer to my cousins bc of FB after years of my mums side rarely talking to each other; I think it's worth making the effort as you are both adults now and should try to not be affected about your parents past

Oh no i have nothing against her. I am quite bitter towards her dad as i know all the things he has done to my dad but she isn't like him. I mean she got me something for the boys yet we didnt get so much as a card from her parents! Not that i care but just shows you what they are like.
I'm not not going because of that, its mainly because OH wont go and no one to watch both the boys.
