    First off, you absolutely don’t have to send thank you cards to people who attended but didn’t give presents.  See this column by Miss Manners.

    However, I have no idea why you think you don’t need to write thank you notes for Christmas or birthday presents.  The only time you don’t is if you opened the present in front of the person who gave it, and thanked the person then.  One of the functions of thank you notes is to reassure the giver that you actually received the gift.

    I just finished up my bridal shower thank-yous yesterday, one week past my actual party. While my wedding hasnt happened yet, so I cant really speak to how quickly those thank-yous will go into the mail, I would be a bit insulted if, after 3 months, I had not received a thank you for a wedding I had attended (and purchased a gift for). If I had not given a gift, I wouldnt expect a thank you.
