Isnt it so fun to get gifts?! Personally, Id wait until after the shower though- you can take them to the shower and open them there. Then send the thank you afterwards.

If you want to go strictly by etiquette, you should send them now.  When a gift is given before an event, the book says you have 2 weeks to send the thank you note.

If you’ve already opened the gifts, I would say definitely send the card now (and if you have opened the gift, the contents of the aunt & uncle’s gift might give you a hint on whether it is enagement, bridal shower, or wedding- aka if its hand towels it is a shower gift). 

If you haven’t, then I guess you could wait until the shower since it is not that far away.

OR if you really want to be on the safe side… send a card now saying that you got the gift and really appreciate it, but are going to wait until the shower to open it, then after the shower either call or send another card about how much you LOVE your new XYZ whatever it is.


Good luck!

PS- maybe your parents know about the gift from the aunt and uncle and might be able to tell you which it is for?

I would send them now. There is no need to wait. They will appreciate receiving a thank you card at any time – even if it is before your shower and wedding.
