@orangeroses29:  Was she invited to the shower?

Either way, send her a thank you note!  Some people like to give gifts, even when they aren’t invited.

I have given gifts to friends and neighbours  when I was not invited to the wedding. I probably wouldn’t send it to the shower, but that was probably what worked for her.

@orangeroses29:  I imagine a lot of my grandma’s friends and my moms friends will send gifts even though they aren’t invited to the wedding. We are having a somewhat small semi-destination wedding so they understand. Just send a thank you note and don’t mention the wedding.

@orangeroses29:  

Yeah, just thank her like you would anyone else! In my family, a lot of great-aunts, cousins and second cousins or friends of grandmother/mother (usually older/middle aged women) come to the “family” bridal shower and give gifts, even though they’re not invited to the wedding.
