Response: Absolutely not. The purpose of a shower is to 'shower' the bride with items for her new home. If she doesnt need anything, then it is better to have a tea or luncheon as a get-together with friends and omit gifts entirely. Guests are not expected to finance the wedding or honeymoon or any portion of it. Therefore, asking for money for a shower gift, unless it will be pooled to purchase a large item like a vacuum, is also considered bad form.
