wedding woes

wedding woes

So.. I have been invited to my cousin's wedding at Disneyland in about 2 months, and we just recieved the invitations for it (also for the bridal shower). However there is a problem.. on the invitations it states that Visa gift cards would be the ideal present for them. I asked my parents if they had a wedding registry and they don't have one at all..

I appreciate the fact that she invited me to her wedding, despite us never being too close.. but I find this horribly tacky. My boyfriend and I are trying to catch up on bills (aren't we all?), but I wanted to get her something nice, rather than practically handing her cash, and I'd rather her not know the exact value on the gift I did decide to get her. It also doesn't help that we have to travel about 2 hours to get there, and stay the night in a hotel, so those are extra expenses as well.

Have any of you even been in a situation such as this? Did you get the gift card anyway, or did you say "screw it" and get them something else? I'm still debating =\
