Last January or early Feb. my mother went to a shower of her friend’s daughter in law. She was expecting her first child. Now both the son and DIL sent the invitation to our address.

My mother went with gifts. When does one get the thank you note? I thought the delay could have to due with pregnancy and problems with the baby. The pregnancy according to her friend went fine and the baby and mother are healthy.

I personally do not see the big deal my mother said when she had her shower she immediately sent hand written thank you notes to all the guests. She believes its good manners and shows an appreciation for the time aand effort the gift giver put into finding the gift and going.
