Between the showers, the weddings and the birthdays, you're going broke on presents. And that's why you're feeling a little overwhelmed, and frankly, abused by your fair-weathered, gift-hungry friends. Here's the simple rule: if you go to the event, bring a gift; if you don't, follow it up with a regret and forget it (unless it's a wedding). Invited to three showers? Only give one present.
