    I think it’s a nice idea, but I’m super picky about my paper products, and I really would want to pick out my own thank-yous.  Maybe a gift card to a nice paper store or stationary company?

    I would have been thrilled with a gift like that.

    @littlemisshostess:  you truly can not have too much stationary as a bride! If she does not want to use them for her guests, she can use them to write thank yous to vendors and such! She could also use them for an entirely different non-wedding related occasion if you get generic ones.

    I’d wonder about the meaning behind it too. It’s a bit like giving someone an etiquette handbook – I’d be thinking that it was meant as a dig at me. It depends on your friend, she may have the same reaction you did, but may take it the wrong way. If you know she’ll like it then go ahead, but think it through first.
