If they gave you checks, you can get copies of the deposited checks from your bank, and cross reference with the 5-6 you’re missing records for.

I’m not sure how to word a thank you card if you don’t know what you’re thanking them for…  Eek!  I’m really glad I wrote everything down now!

@IngridS:  This exact thing happened to us. I had some cards that I forgot to write down who gave us what and that DH lost!! Anyways, I had my Thank you cards made from Vista Print and inside It said this: (See Below) I thought it was a good way to say thank you for their gift without having to remember exactly what they gave us.  🙂

@IngridS:  “nah, I’ll remember”

Oh my gosh that is insane.  I would never be able to remember stuff like that!

Personally, I’ve never received a Thank You card that had the specific item or gift that they were thanking me for.  Most of the time it’s something like “Thank you so much for sharing our special day with us and for your thoughtful gift! We really enjoyed seeing you there and hope you had a great time celebrating with us!”
