What do you do?

What do you do when you have committed to buying a gift for someone, and you spend time checking their Wish List, picking out something from it, ordering the gift through the mail, wrapping it, packing it, addressing it. And just before you take it to the post office you check their Wish List one last time, and you find that the item is now missing from their Wish List, indicating that they probably have it now?

*sigh*

And I don't even know whether anyone else would like the same gift. So now I don't know what to do with the gift I already bought, AND now I have to come up with a new gift for this person, and FAST!

*heavy sigh*

Yikes! I guess I'm not sure what I would do...is the gift something that they could possibly use more than one of?

I'd send it anyways and hope for the best. It is the thought that counts.

Ditto Diane. You did go to a lot of trouble to pick out what they want(ed), so let them figure out what to do with it... But this might just be me, lol!

Thanks for the feedback guys! Yep, that's what I wound up doing. I figured if I hadn't been so anal and checked the Wish List again, I never would have known that the item had disappeared from the list. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss, and I wish I'd remained blissfully ignorant!
