RenoSweeney24:  Wait until you receive it! It would be embarrassing if you thanked her for a gift you haven’t received or if it turns out she bought it for herself! Unlikely lol but I’d wait!

I would wait, you can send them all out at once of that makes things easier.

I actually had someone buy something off my registry and then they never sent it.  So, definitely wait.  🙂

RenoSweeney24:  Lol yeah, I’m quite certain it actually is for you anyway but I’d still wait 😉

Have you had your shower yet? It could be for that, in which case you can send it out with all the other thank yous. Or if you think it’s for the wedding I’d wait to do the thank yous together with your hubby 🙂

Unless she gives it to you before the wedding then you can send one at that time.

RenoSweeney24:  even though we all do it, never admit that you registry stalk to anyone. The only person who knows I do it is my FI. What fun would that be for anyone to give you a gift if they knew you saw as soon as they bought it? Wait until you receive it like you never knew.

RenoSweeney24:  What a PP said, you’re not supposed to let people know you’re actively loooking at your own reigstry.  Wait until you receive the item and then thank her.
