Send the thank you! Even if it is for the wedding, it’s great to acknowledge the gift quickly after you receive it so the sender knows it arrived. You can’t go wrong sending a thank you now and just saying “Can’t wait to see you at the wedding!”

@NAvery:  I second this! I would write, “Thank you for the lovely xxx. I missed you at the shower, but  FI and I can’t wait to see you at the wedding!” etc. Then send it early so it’s relevant and makes sense. I think it’s pretty common to send thank yous for wedding gifts as they arrive rather than after the wedding.

Just thank her immediately — it doesn’t matter what the gift was for. What matters is that you’ve already received it, and she wants to know that it arrived safely and that you like it.

I agree with the ladies – say thank you ASAP so she knows you got it and so you can show her your appreciation.

You should always send thank yous as soon as you get it.

I had several present that arrived around my engagement or bridal shower that turned out to be wedding presents. Just make sure not to mention what it’s for (don’t say: “Sorry you missed the bridal shower, but thanks for the gift!”)

I agree, send a thank you for “the gift” and leave off “shower gift” or whatever.
