I wouldn’t call it overreacting by any means, but maybe they just haven’t received it yet… I work with a Post Office sub station, and with the volume of mail they have it definitely has slowed mail down. So maybe with it going 2000 miles as you said, and depending on when you sent it, it may still just be on it’s way. So just give it a couple days, see if he says anything… Hope that helps 🙂

I don’t think you are overreacting. I have to mail gifts off to my family as well (I only buy for the kids). If I have not heard from them after about a week of the package being mailed i normally text and just ask If they have received the package, I don’t feel that by asking that I am looking for a thank you, I am only asking to make sure it did not get lost on its way there. I say if you have not heard from them in a few days just text or email making sure they got the package.

I think you should chill out till tomorrow. He has kids and family obligations. It’s perfectly reasonable that he would be tied up. It might be that he’s waiting till after dinner to all.

Are you sure that it arrived first of all?  With all the people mailing things, some packages might have been delayed.  I also would wait a day or two, he might be spending time with his family today and call you later or mail a thank you instead of calling.  If you don’t get a thank you in a week or so, I would be pissed.

I also think you’re overreacting a little bit.  Why don’t you call him to wish him a Merry Christmas?  I bet it will come up naturally then.  Hopefully they will send a card.  If they don’t, THEN you can be pissed 🙂

Could you ask him something like “Did you get the gift I sent?” over facebook? He might not have gotten it…but if he did then you ARE NOT overreacting at all!
