    Give them and let her worry about it. She probably took them off due to being clearanced or something. But she thanked you, so you should give them. I hope you got a gift receipt because she’ll have a hard time returning them if she removed it from her registry. In the end, it’s her problem though.

    Maybe she changed the registry because she wanted both? She already knew you bought the gift, so she should be expecting it and it’s up to her to exchange it if that is what she wants. It’s not really your problem though. 

    If it was someone close to me, I would call and make the extra effort. Otherwise I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

    Give them! She probably still wants them (since she thanked you) or if not, she’ll figure it out.

    I would say exchange it if you wanted to, but since she already knows you bought them to stick with them!

    Give it to her. If she removed it that is her issue and she will have to deal with returning or exchanging it.

    Give them to her! And let her deal with exchanging them should she choose to do so. 🙂

    I think it’s more of a case where a new set came out that she liked more so she changed what was on her registry. The problem is the other set should have showed up on her registry as bought, which means she shouldn’t have been able to change it after the fact, but just add another item. 

    I would exchange it for the new item listed, you getting the gift so much in advance means she likely won’t be able to return it for the one she wants.
