I want to send out a generic thank you card to my guests, for coming and presents and cards. What should I write?
The reason is that we received gifts with no name on them. I mean we got some gifts but have no idea who gave them to us!

You don’t write generic thank you notes. Personalize the ones for people who you know got you a gift. Start with detective work on the gifts to find out who gave you what. Check with family and friends: “I got the most beautiful serving dish, but there was no tag. Do you happen to know who sent it?”.

You should do whatever it takes to find out which gifts are from whom. Your parents can help. It’s really not polite to send a generic note. They should be personalized and mention the specific gift(s) and how you plan to incorporate that gift/those gifts into your new life.

Ditto on finding out who got you the ghost gifts. Generic notes will rub people the wrong way. Good luck!

To echo the previous posters, ask around and avoid writing generic thank you notes.

Generic thank you notes bother people. If you look through old posts you’ll see more than one Bee feeling a bit slighted that she spent time and effort to choose a gift for someone (even selecting from the registry requires some time & effort!) and they couldn’t be bothered to spend five minutes writing a personalized thank you.
Do everything you can to find out who the mysterious gifts came from. For any last straggling gifts, if the givers don’t get a thank you note in a normal amount of time they may ask your parents if your recieved the [serving platter] that they gave you.
