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.
