I didn’t get any really late presents but I am horrible and still haven’t finished a present from a friends’ wedding in 2011.  I’m so lame.

We are having dinner with friends next week and they’ve already told us that they have our wedding gift which they forgot at home when they came to the wedding. That will be roughly two months after the wedding. My mom is also giving us money for our honeymoon which we are taking in February, so that will be close to three months after the wedding when she actually gives us the money.

We received a gift from each of our invited guests (with the exception of one) either prior to our wedding or the day of.

However, over Christmas (6 months after wedding) we received a gift from a family friend who hadn’t even been invited to the wedding- it was so thoughtful and generous of him.

One of my mom’s friends gave us a wedding gift when she came by before Christmas. But it’s very understandable. She had been unable to attend our civil ceremony in May and we then moved to the US and hadn’t been back to Germany before Christmas. I was touched.

Just received a check from a friend that could not attend our September 22 wedding; a month ago we received a beautiful glass bowl from Tiffany’s engraved with our names and wedding date from another couple who could not attend.  All the guests at the wedding gave us gifts at that time.

A couple left a gift for us on my parents doorstep around Christmas, 5 months after we got married. I don’t know if they forgot or if they wanted to wait until Christmas, but we got all Christmas themed wedding gifts like snowflake pot holders and an “Our 1st Christmas” Precious Moments ornament. I was actually really surprised and thankful.

@Bellagiobride:  I usually make cross stitch wedding presents for my friend’s weddings and baby’s births.  I forgot about finishing a present for my friend that got married in 2011.
