This may be a weird question, but I’m not going to be able to make it to a co-worker’s wedding on October 17th, but I’m still giving her a gift. I didn’t feel like paying the $20 for shipping from her registry when I see her every day and she lives 5 minutes from my house.
Is it ok to just drop it off at her house one night? I didn’t want to bring it to work because then she would have to just bring it home.
And can I do it now or should I wait until after the wedding?
I just didn’t know if there was some etiquette rule that I would be breaking if I just called her and dropped by her house to give it to her 3 weeks before her wedding…..

Its perfectly acceptable to drop the gift off at her home before or after the wedding. I’d drop the gift off in the next week or wait until after the wedding (you don’t want to add anything to a bride’s to do list the two weeks before her wedding).

I think it is fine for you to drop it off at her house – but I would drop it off in the weeks before the last week before the wedding or after the wedding – you don’t want to catch her in the pre-wedding stress time the week before the wedding!

I would probably call her first and then drop it off. I just wouldn’t want to ‘stop over’ and drop something off at anybody’s house without calling first – you just never know what you might be dropping in on (dinner, in-laws, etc). I would say though that it’s perfectly acceptable to drop the gift off at her house (if you call first), as opposed to paying for shipping. It’s more personal and economical – can’t go wrong! 🙂

Set up a time to stop by. You might also invite her over for coffee or dinner and send the gift home with her then (depends on your relationship, if you occasionally get together then this is a good way to do it, if you usually don’t and it would be an out of the ordinary thing, then don’t since it may cause more stress).
