It depends on who the person is. Recently, I was invited to a shower that I didn't even know the bride. I was asked at another function, did not receive an actual invite and they didn't even have my name, I was "FI's fiance". I wasn't able to attend, and I did not send a gift.
If it's someone I know, then yes, I would send a gift.
I agree, obviously if it is a close friend or family member you definitely have to but if you are invited to someone's that you barely know then I would think you wouldn't have to.
