    Yes, you should ask. It may come off as rude, but she never sent a thank you note. : (33 votes)

    I would ask…

    It’s possible she DIDN’T get the gift, which would clear up all the confusion regarding thank you notes and YOU not receiving a gift (perhaps she didnt bring one because she thought you never sent one??)…

    Or, she DID get your gift, chose to NOT send a thank you note, and chose to NOT bring you a gift. Which is all a LOT more rude than you asking if she received your gift! So I would not worry about coming off as rude.

    Maybe in your next conversation with her, you could say something like “I loved the wine glasses we bought you so much that I bought a set for us!” and gage reaction.

    I agree with kgarvin01 !  It’s a good idea to somehow bring it up casually like that and gage her reaction. If you visit them, maybe you could snoop around their house to see if they are on display anywhere, ahah!

    @Ms. Kitty:  Well that will leave a bad taste in your mouth ehh.  But at least you can have closure and move on!
