So I finally got married! It was amazingggg! Maybe I'll put a recap somewhere. Anyway I wanted to know what to do in this situation. We have a crate and barrel registry (and Amazon), guests knew what to do for the most part and when they bought a gift it was marked as fulfilled. One guest used the registry as a guide I guess and bought an item without using the registry itself. He bought it as a separate item mailed to himself and then given to us so it wasn't marked on our list as fulfilled. We just received it today and realized we have two of the same gift, ha. We should definitely exchange the gift because it's something that doesn't make sense to have two of but I wonder if he'll find out, or if it's a hurtful thing to do? If I go to crate and barrel and exchange it for another item would it even notify him? Or is it not a big deal? Anyone have this scenario happen? I don't want to seem ungrateful but I'm sure he didn't mean to get us a gift we already have.
p.s: Also what should I put in the thank you note? Should I be honest about what happened to the gift? Or thank them the same way I would with any other gift?
