I sent thank you cards right away, I didn’t want to take the chance and forget.

Just me, but I would think it was a wedding gift.  If it was more than $100, definitely a wedding gift.  It it was closer to $50, probably a shower gift.

I would just send a Thank You card now. I think it’s a wedding gift because in my circle, people usually hand-deliver/gift in person the shower gift (assuming they are attending) but will send/have delivered the wedding gift.

I opened all of our gifts pre-wedding but I didn’t use any of them until afterwards.

Wedding gift….when I got shower gifts via mail, they said “happy shower” or something and were just from the female. 


Send card now.  I did that and it saved me a TON of time after the wedding!

I don’t think it matters what the price is. If the giver was invited to a shower I would assume it is a shower gift unless told otherwise. I would wait until the shower to open and use it just in case. I have received a lot of very expensive shower gifts so you just never know!

Its easier to keep up on cards, if you do them as you receive gifts.

Also lets the give know you received the present.

I agree. If it were a shower gift, it would be addressed to the Bride only. The fact that they sent it to Bride and Groom, I would assume it is a Wedding gift. Also, since they are family, if it were a gift to the bridal shower, I am sure someone would have contacted you to say “hey, don’t open it and bring it to the shower,” or they would have sent it to another family memebers house to bring to the shower. So, yes it is a wedding gift.
