I have a question…
Last weekend, I had my shower, which was beautiful. I already started my thank you cards and had a dilemma. My aunt stopped by for literally 5 minutes and barely talked to me. She said hi and gave me a hug and then talked to my mom and grandma. She never gave me a gift, which is no big deal, but she didn’t even give me a card. And I know she stopped by but she didn’t say much to me. Question is…
Do I send a thank you card for stopping by?

Spelled etiquette wrong…sorry 😉

Thank you cards are for gifts. If you want to thank her for stopping by, send an email or call.
The only exception to this is actual weddings, for which some cultures expect a thank you card for attending (I’ve never gotten one, and did not send them for this, but I know some cultures consider it expected).

If you send one, it’ll be a kill her with kindness thing, so I think you should…

Maybe send her a card saying something like, “i wanted to thank you for stopping by, it was great seeing you” ??

Thank you notes are for gifts.
You do not thank someone for their attendance. The host provided food and refreshment for all the guests to thank guests for coming to the party. The attendee should be thanking the host for her hospitality.
Thanking guests for attending can be seen as fishing for gifts.
