I know this could probably go on P&E but I'm going to put it on here anyways. My mom was incredibly generous and is buying us a custom made china hutch from Amish furniture. We ordered it last weekend. Normally you would send the thank you card after recieving the gift, however, because the hutch is custom made, we won't recieve it until Christmas. She has already paid for it, we were there when the order was placed. I am pretty sure we send the thank-you now, but when would you ladies do it? Now, or after recieving it when we can say how much we love it?
