Shower Etiquette: To give a gift or not?

This is perfect to follow up to what we talked about the other day regarding sending a gift for a wedding if you cannot attend.  So, what about a shower?

The whole point of a shower is to "shower" the bride with gifts so that the happy couple can start their new lives together with essential items...and some fun items to get them of to a great start.  Showers are a little more laid back so I think it really depends on how well you know the bride or groom.  If you are close to either side it is a good idea to send a gift even if you cannot be there, the guest of honor will be truly grateful that you still thought of them and will remember that you cared enough to pick something out for them even though you could not enjoy the festivities.

So I would like to know how you feel, would you send a gift or not an are there certain situations that require a gift or not?

See you swoon,
