Hi Bees, does anyone know if there is any way to see who purchased which gift on the online Target registry manager? I am an English teacher, and as such deal pretty much in dusty old books, not websites. Am I missing an obvious link, or does it not exist? I would like to write thank-yous as soon as I see gifts have been purchased.

I don’t believe there is a way to tell who purchased what; just what has been purchased.

Nope, not with Target. Macy’s does that though.

Yeah I second CaraMia — I think you can only see if an item has been purchased, but not who purchased it. It’s a great idea to get a jump on thank yous, though. Maybe you could *start* a thank you note for each gift, then go back and add the name and a bit of personalizing to each card. Such as….
Dear Aunt Sue,
Thank you so much for the lovely flatware you purchased for us! It is going to get a lot of use and we look forward to having you over to enjoy it with us. It was nice seeing you and I hope you and Uncle Bob enjoyed Hollywood…. etc.
Writing something like the bolded parts first, and adding something like the non-bolded later could still save you time if you really want to do your thank yous “ahead” of time. 🙂

@piglet_625: I don’t think that would work though. Because what if Aunt Sue and Uncle Bob bought you both the flatware (just taking your example) AND a plate set and picture frame (very generous Aunt and Uncle – but you get the idea – multiple gifts from one person). By your method, you would have 3 thank you notes started that should all be one thank you note.
@mundaetraversa: I’m almost positive there is no way to tell (and personally I think that kind of ruins the fun/surprise of getting gifts – its one thing to know what has been bought; it a whole other thing to know exactly who it is coming from). Just wait until you get things (some stuff will be sent to you pre-wedding) and start thank yous as you receive items to trim down what you’ll have to do post-wedding.

You can call customer service and they’ll tell you who bought what.

FutureKMM… very, very good point. I didn’t think about that haha… good thing I haven’t started yet, or else I might have been tempted to do that! It worked so well in my mind… 🙂

Good stuff to know. We’re registered at BB&B, Macys, and Target. My shower is about a month away so I’m sure I’ll be registry stalking soon.
