We are down to the last few thank yous, but my beautiful spreadsheet has failed me. We forgot to enter in one person’s gift. I know they gave us something, but I completely forgot what. And we can’t find the card. How should I word the thank you? Just “thank you for your gift?”

Is there a way to do a “process of elimination” with your registry, to figure out what their gift was? If not, I’d just thank them for their generosity and fill the rest of the card with how grateful you were to have them at your wedding and how much you’re looking forward to the next time you get to see them.

yep, do you best to work it out or even ask someone else to find out for you (sneaky :)) . If that’s not possible, thank for the gift etc etc.

If you honestly don’t know what they brought, don’t pretend that you do. Also, don’t inform them of your mistake, even though it is a common one. Just simply say “Thank you so much for sharing in our day” (obviously that is generic but you can elaborate to make it more your style while not mentioning the gift).

@jedeve: Do you have a hard copy somewhere? You might ask the person who wrote your gift list if they remember the gift. If none of this is possible, I would call the giver and verify what the gift was.
