Definitely send the note. Maybe you can even comment about getting use of the gift, if what they gave was a tangible item.

If you thanked them in person, and you called them upon receipt of the gift, you do not need to send a thank you card.

I think most people will say you need to send a note. For me though, if you had already thanked me that would be more than enough!

Depending on what the present was you could phrase it sort of like “I was using/I saw the lovely -blank- you got me today and I just want to thank you once again for such a wonderful gift.” That way it doesn’t draw too much attention to the not being late and it refers to the fact that you did thank them so it’s not like you just forgot to thank them at all. Or if they have money you could say “I just used your generous gift today towards -blank-” (even if you already spent it).
