    Haha, very strange! I would wait a few more days and then send them a thank you note. Maybe there was some sort of mix-up!

    @BrookeBQ:  lol. Is he the type of guy who would joke like that or is he serious? Either way if he’s coming to the wedding don’t you usually just send thank yous after?

    You know your friend best, but I’d be worried something went wrong with his order. A note thanking him for one cloth (either written as your-jokes-are-so-funny-ha-ha or genuine) may be confusing if he meant to send more. Unless you registered for, like, $80 wash cloths?

    I would send the note now and I would  thank them for the facecloth. Maybe they think it’s a reasonable gift  given their budget and the expenses associated with being in the wedding party.

    Besides being one less note to send later, if there was some kind of mix up, they will be aware of it now, when they can do something about it. If not, you will always remember this washcloth.

    Yeah, we had some couples get us gifts around that price range. It’s not something I’d ever do, but it happens I guess.

    I am so doing this the next time I get a chance.  I’ll start early and once a week go in and buy 1 piece of something from the registry (instead of buying it all at once).  

    I don’t know when you should send the card.  But I am filing this little nugget away for future.

    @BrookeBQ:  I would be tempted to really ham up the thank you note, like describe how every night you wash your face, and then your fiance washes his face with a damp washcloth and it’s a wonderful reflection on marriage.

    @Polygon:  

    Both of your responses cracked me up! And I kind of want to send a gift piece by piece now…But only to someone like OP who could see the humor in it Smile

    Send it now. There’s no rule that you can only send a single thank-you. So thank him for this. And if something more shows up, thank him for that. If he’s in the wedding you can send a thank-you after for his involvement and support the day of.

    @sostobe:  this might be the best idea I’ve ever heard.  I’m going to buy someone a set of towels one at a time.  Starting with the cheapest item.
