I didn't know where to post this. Sorry if it's in the wrong place. I've always thought sending out thank you cards was the proper thing to do? Is this old fashioned? I still do it with even the smallest thing. Well, my BIL's girlfriend is pregnant. She had her baby shower in the middle of last month. As always I put a ton of thought into picking out gifts and really went all out with the gifts. I wasn't able to make it to the shower because I wasn't feeling well, but my MIL and SIL took her gift to the shower for me. Well, I saw her last week and... nothing. She said nothing about the gift and there has been no thank you card. She's young, only 19 or 20... but that makes no difference to me. Maybe it's just the way I was raised, but I have always written out thank yous and given calls for presents received. Even if she isn't sending out cards, it seems like a thank you would have been said. Am I being emotional and crazy right now or does anyone else think this isn't right?
