Thank You Card for Hostess Gift

What are everyone’s thoughts on sending a thank you card for a hostess gift received? For example, I co-hosted a bridal shower this past weekend and the sweet bride gave me and the other hostess a gift as a “thank you.” Do I send a TY card for this gift even though the gift itself was the “thank you?” That feels a little bit like saying thanks for saying thanks, haha! Am I crazy to think it would be weird to send a note? And if I do, what would it say?! “Thanks for the hostess gift, so great to see you at the shower!” ???

Thoughts?

    I definitely don't think you need a thank you card for the hostess gift. I think you could just send a text saying "Thanks so much for the lovely [insert gift here], I'm excited to try it out/display it/check out the restaurant/whatever".

  • The hostess gift is a "thank you". This would be like writing a thank you note because someone gave you a thank you note. KWIM? Not necessary.

  • I agree with the other PPs.  If you already thanked her for it in person, nothing more to be done.  If you received it another way, then give her a quick call, text, or e-mail that thanks her and lets her know you received it.

    OK, glad I'm not the only one who sees it this way! Thanks for the input, ladies. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't making a total etiquette faux pas by only thanking her in person.
