jk! Maybe make a list of possible givers and start making phone calls?

This is probably not the best etiquette wise (I don’t pay much attention to rules like that anyway), but I recieved a gift with no name. I posted a status update on facebook and got a response from the person that sent it… Totally up to you if you want to do that…

Are there any. “likely” suspects? Like a great aunt who doted on you or fi?

I’ve been married once before (and fwiw, we didn’t register for a lot but requested donations to two non profits). There was a lovely donation to an art museum in our area. It wasn’t something that we mentioned, but my ex husband and I enjoy it. The art museum couldn’t tell us who did it! It was so weird. We did word of mouth, and eventually my ex husband posted on facebook. he did it more as “we didn’t ask for a lot, and a wonder person donated to [art museum]. We’d love to thank you (and have  Holly bake you cupcakes!) but dont’ know who it is! Any friends have ideas of how to figure this situation out?” It was more liek posting on here asking how to figure it out, as we hadn’t expected that person to read it there and tell us. They messaged us, and the person ended up having a card at home with the info! They mailed it to us (so not necessary!) and it was funny in the end. So, while it’s a little weird to do that, maybe something like that? What about calling corporate BB&B?

“Someone gifted us a lovely set of dishes but the card seems to have been lost in the shuffle. If this was you please let us know! We would love to have you over to dinner now that we have something wonderful to serve it on”

did you try calling the service number? maybe the people ordered it online so that is why they don’t have access to the information?

Some registries have a manager function you can see who purchased what item.

We got some gifts with no notice of who gave them to us.  I also pulled the facebook-asking, since we’d narrowed down the givers to a group we’d invited/sent a “oh hey, expect an invite for this party” message to.

It was  a “yeah, breaking the rules, but we’ve got some unmarked gifts that we’d like to send proper thank yous for…  if you can help, that’d be great!” sort of message.

Alas, no one responded. 🙁  BB&B was no help in trying to sleuth some of the gifts.

Other times, I’ve had people ask if I was enjoying the thing they got me, so maybe if you wait long enough, it’ll come about that way?
