Yesterday, my mother sends me a message saying that she’s getting her hair done tomorrow for free by one of her friends who happens to be a professional stylist. I’m real excited for her… but then she said that this styling session is his wedding present to me. He and his wife couldn’t come to the wedding, and I was not expecting any gifts from them.
Do I have to write a thank you note for this? Am I sane to think that this is an awkward gift?

I agree that a free hairstyle for your mother is a strange gift for your wedding. I don’t see a reason that you would need to write a thank you, but they might be offended if you don’t. Maybe you should just write them a thank you to be safe.

If it was truly meant to be a “gift” to you and your fiance, I would think that the stylist would have at least sent you a card or told you himself. I wouldn’t send a thank-you card unless either of those instances occur.
That just sounds so obsurd!

Hahah! That is a new one! I would say, yes, write the thank you note. Lol.

Thank you so much for styling my mother’s hair. Fiance and I are truly grateful and this will be a great help to our future.
Ya that just doesn’t sound right. What a bizarro gift. Maybe it’s a congratulations on your daughter getting married gift for your mom but I fail to see how this is a wedding gift to YOU.

Um, I don’t get it. As a ‘wedding gift’ to you, they did your Mother’s hair for free? I’m sorry, if that’s the case, I wouldn’t send a thank you. You didn’t receive anything, nor did they even send you a card to express their intentions. That is really, really strange.

I wouldn’t send a thank you. No matter what this guy says, this is not a gift to you. A gift to your mother on the occasion of her daughter’s marriage maybe, but not a gift to you. She can write a thank you note if she chooses, but you don’t have to.

Maybe it would be a nice gesture for your mom to send a thank you note…since the gift is really for her.
