Baby shower gifts sent via mail

I have guests attending my shower and some have sent the gift in the mail. Should I bring the gift to the shower and acknowledge that I received it at the shower? We will be using the timer when we open gifts so we want everyone to have a chance at winning a gift.

Definitely yes

I would definitely acknowledge their gifts at the shower. No matter how someone chooses to give you a gift, the fact still remains that they contributed something for your new baby. And they deserve appreciation for that.

So, yes, their gift and their chance of winning something should be included and displayed just like everyone else’s.

If you didn’t include the mailed gifts, it would be like implying that those gifts do not count, or that you don’t particulary care for them, and you don’t want to send that message to your guests.
