My fiancee and I recieved a package from my boss from Macy’s which I can only assume is a wedding gift (sender’s name is on the outside label). The only thing is – our wedding is 2 months away! I’m not sure if he meant to send it to us or not – we just had a shower gift arrive at our home, also from Macy’s, that wasn’t supposed to come to us. How should I handle? He and his wife aren’t invited to the wedding (not that we woudln’t love them there, but we didn’t invite anyone work related just to keep the numbers down). Should I reach out to him and let him know we received it but aren’t sure if it was meant to come to us? What do you suggest? I suppose if it was closer to the date or he was invited it would be easier to determine. Thanks!

Just write him a thank you card. My boss wasn’t invited to our wedding but left a nice card and generous gift on my desk a few weeks before my wedding. We wrote a thank you card and gave it to him before the wedding.

Preludeangel: Just thank him.I doubt it was a mistake. I’m not sure why you think it was.

Preludeangel: The right thing to do is to send a thank you card immediately. They will have assurance that the gift has arrived and that it is appreciated. You will have one less thank you card to do later.

It wasn’t a mistake, and it’s not unusual to receive wedding gifts a couple months before the wedding. He’s just being a nice, polite boss. Open it and send a thank you note asap.

I think you should ask bc this just happened to me and it was a mistake! My mom ordered something off my registry for my shower and it got delivered to me! I thought the same as you but i happen to be on the phone with her when I got it! She was flipping out! Thank goodness I didn’t open it!

Just open it and send a thank you card right away. He’ll know you got it and appreciate it. It’s normal to receive gifts before the wedding and sometimes people who aren’t invited to the wedding will still send a gift to be nice. We got some china four months before ours! It doesn’t seem like your boss made a mistake.
