This is probably not the right forum for this post, but I figured I would give it a shot.
We are having my daughter’s birthday party in the near future. One of our guest, who was originally planning on coming, will now not be able to come due to unforseen circumstances.
He let me know about this via email. I understand his situation and have not issue with this. He is also asking for my address so that he can mail the gift to us. I am not sure how to respond to it. Just sending an email with “Here is my address to mail the gift. Thanks” seems very tacky.
Just wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions on how I could reply with the address. Thanks for reading.

I think what you have said above is really all you need. But yah, it’s short. I expand the “thanks” to saying how kind it is and unnecessary to send a gift but you and your daughter really appreciate the thought.

sorry you can’t make it to the party. you will definitely be missed. hope to see you soon!

We had people who couldn’t make it to our wedding and wanted to send a gift. We told them that it’s very kind of them and we appreciate the thought, but no gift is necessary.
Some people just left it at that and didn’t send one, which is seriously totally fine. However, some insisted after that response and with that, we said again, “Okay, since you insist, our address is xyz. But again, you really don’t have too! Thank you so much for everything.”

How bout if you reiterate that a gift isn’t necessary but if they wanted to send a card/greeting personally your address is….
