Was I being cheap?!?

So, I my BFF invited me to a baby shower that she was throwing for her  cousin.  Now, I do not know her cousin well, I have maybe seen her twice at my friends' family functions.  Each time she snubbed me while I tried to make small talk.  I went for my friend, who sometimes needs support when dealing with her family.  I brought a gift, a pack of diapers and some hooded towels off her registry, I spent maybe $25.00, when she opened the gift, I heard some of her friends snickering and saying things like "what cheapass gave her that?!?"  I don't know if I should be pissed or embarrassed.  She had her baby today, and I am trying to decide if I should send another gift with my friend to the hospital to make up for my gift being inappropriate.... What do you think?

Hell no, don't send her anything.  I don't understand why you got her a gift in the first place.  Save your money for people who appreciate it.

Fuck her.  What makes you think that she would be more gracious if you send another gift?

I think the other guests were rude. Your gift was fine and there is no need to send another gift.

Wow. :( I don't think it was cheap. To me the shower is about celebrating the child. Half of my guests didn't bring anything but themselves and I loved them being there. Seeing as how you didn't know her well I dont think that's cheap at all.

No, you don't know her and when you did try to get to know her she snubbed you. Save your money for a gift someone who would appreciate it.

The gift you gave was very nice and practical. Just send your best wishes to her the baby.
