    I wouldn’t wrap it.. that seems silly. If your friend would have wanted it wrapped, she could have paid the extra to wrap it.. or delivered it to her own house and wrapped it.

    Seems kind of weird to bring it there as well, though.

    People in my family do this all the time with items that are expecially big and heavy. Maybe it accidently got sent to you? Sometimes the registry sites are confusing and you don’t realize that it has the couple’s address listed as the Send To one. I’d call her up and thank her for sure, but I’d also call her up just to make sure that’s what she intended since it’s not a heavy item. Maybe she wanted to bring it with and accidentally sent it to you? Otherwise, I’d keep it at home and mention it at the shower. I’ve even seen brides take pictures of items (usually furniture or other big items) and bring them to the shower so that they can show pple what so and so gave them.

    Are you sure it’s not a wedding gift? I personally only give one gift for weddings…and either bring it to the shower or have it delivered. I only saw here on the Bee that people do separate gifts.

    Either way, I wouldn’t wrap it or bring it to the shower. Just thank them when you see them, so they know that you received it.

    @Pollywog:  Can you call your friend and thank her for the gift and then ask her what she would like? Just let her know you’re unsure and since it was from her, you wanted to do what she prefered 🙂


    Failing that I would probably leave it at home and thank her at the shower 🙂

    Take a photo of yourself with the gift and take that to the shower.

    I brought the gifts we received to the shower unless they were bulky.

    @Pollywog:  A lot of people did this to me… and didn’t gift wrap. My neighbor (co-host of the shower) was mortified that they didn’t, and she wrapped everything that wasn’t wrapped herself. I thought it was unnecesssary, but people did thank her for it.
