What's a good "sorry" gift for turning down a destination wedding?
A close friend of mine asked me to a destination wedding (his fiance's master plan). They have been asking me for months and months, but I just can't afford to take 7 days off and spend 5K for my wife and I to go. I've already hinted at it and they don't seem to be taking it very well... It's a pretty unrealistic attitude, but I think they threw their hearts into it.
I'm thinking about giving a cool gift to compensate like $1000 in an aluminum briefcase. But I think that this may be equally unpopular (and tacky too). Anyone in the Woot! community have any ideas for a good wedding gift that will show them that I care about not being able to go and I'm not just throwing cash at their feet.
