I'm hoping somewhere here can help out, I looked online but couldn't find an answer. My baby shower is next month, but we have received gifts in advance. For some of the gifts, the person giving the gift will attend the shower in person. For other gifts, some will not be attending the shower in person,or I'm not sure if they will be attending.
What is the proper etiquette for sending thank you notes? Do I send the thank you notes when the gift arrives? Or do I wait until after the shower? I'm leaning towards sending the thank you note when the gift arrives to let the person know it arrived. We opened the gifts since the packages are quite large and don't want all the extra cardboard around the house. For those who sent their gifts in advance and will also be attending, my baby shower host offered to wrap those up for the shower. Thoughts?
