HAHA, got you to look. Not THAT kind of question, I promise, not at all as rude as the title reads. 😉
Here is the deal: a friend of ours couldn’t come to the wedding due to finances. 🙁 This was a common decline reason and it made us sad but we expected it. Anyway, we recently saw him and he was gushing about the gift he got us… this wasn’t a situation where we planned on getting together, we just ran into each other while out and about.
So he went on and on about how we will love it and we have to get together soon so he can give it to us, but he is busy and we are busy and I am just dying to know what it is.
Is there any polite way to mention it?

Sorry, unless he attended the wedding, I think any gifts are just considered a “bonus”. Also, not to be a Miss Manners but technically this person has up to a year to provide you with the gift.
Maybe you could have a little “get together” soiree at your place or a local restaurant and invite this person? What a perfect opportunity to receive your gift!!! 🙂

@med700: Well we’re planning an at-home reception which would be a perfect time. I know he has a year, and I know it’s totally a bonus and awesome! We never expected it and we’re really grateful. Just excited, like a kid at Christmas looking at wrapped gifts under the tree and dying to know what is there! And he was super anxious to get it to us too, I know we are all just wrapped up in “life”.
But yeah we have been wanting to get together with him soon anyway, before the AHR, just because we miss him. So maybe! 🙂

you are worse than a kid on Christmas lol. Patience is a virtue. Hang in there, I know the anticipation would kill me. It drives me crazy when people have tell me stuff and I have to wait for the rest of it.
Now you have to let us know what it is once you finally get it 🙂

@satsumaflower: Most definitely! All I know is that he said it is awesome, and vintage… and so most likely I will appreciate it more than my DW. 😉

yes, patience is a virtue, but I wonder if his “going on and on” about wanting to get together and give it to you really is a big hint that he wants to get together? I’m sure it will be a lovely gift! 🙂
