shower gifts for a distant bride
several of us are hosting a local shower for a young lady that lives several states away. Shipping these gifts back home is a concern for us. Assuming the guests might not think of this when purchasing a shower gift for her, is there any way to mention that either a gift small in size or a gift card might be the way to go without actually coming out and saying so? Is this socially incorrect? Do you think wording the invitation with a cute poem about distance and travel might be a subtle way of suggesting the better choice of gifts?
