Definitely need to send shower thank you’s.  I found mine at Target – they were inexpensive and cute.

Yes, I agree with every other poster – thank you notes for shower gifts are a complete must-do. Please listen to the etiquette advice from your stepmom – she is spot on. Even though you think you don’t have time or money for cards and stamps, think of your shower guests who spent time and money choosing a gift just for you, wrapped it, attached a card, and came to a shower for a few hours.  When you look at it that way, a few cents for paper and a $.44 stamp doesn’t seem like too much of a sacrifice, does it?

The other posters have said it all already… but YES, I think thank you notes for all gifts are a must!

Yup, they are a must. It is annoying and a pain and NOT fun at all, but it is “just one of those things…”

Sending thank you cards for any present is a must in my book.  After all, these people are coming to your wedding, your shower, and giving you presents…I think they deserve all the thanks you can give them!

My mom always said that if someone gives you something you always have to thank them with a thank you card.  So yes, you will need to send them a thank you card.

I did thank you’s for everything we’ve been given- even if I thanked them in person- better to over-thank them than have them think you are incredibly rude! (Probably more the case with older guests)

I’ve always received a thank you card from a shower I’ve been to. Even if its just a simple card, doesn’t have to be fancy.

I have too.  I’ve received simple thank you cards from the bride as well before the wedding.  It’s cheap.  You can buy cute thank you cards at Target.

Whenever thank you notes are on sale, I stock up and I keep plenty of stamps on hand.  A few weeks ago I got boxes of 20 thank yous for a buck at the Christmas Tree store- I bought 10 boxes.  Bonus- they are masculine enough my Fiance can use them too.  I am trying to do some on my lunch break at work.  They really are quick.  But I think after the wedding is fine.
