Surely this has been asked, and I apologize for the duplication.
I've received a few duplicate gifts at showers. Of course I won't USE any gifts until after the wedding, but do I return the duplicates now or then? I do have gift receipts for some, but I'm worried about others losing their value in the next two months until the wedding.
Similiarly, do we cash checks that we have been given as shower gifts and just set the cash aside or leave the checks until after the wedding?
