Haven’t got any yet, but I will DEFINITELY keep a list! How else will I remember who gave what when I write my thank-you notes? Everything I’ve read even includes "make sure you keep a list" in their random tips. I don’t know if I’ll track dollar amounts. I probably will, just so I can know how much we got!

I think a list is a must!  I want to make sure I get a "thank you" to everyone that gives us a gift.  The list will ensure I know who to send a note to and what to thank them for (I think it’s nice to be specific so it doesn’t just look like you copied a generic sentiment onto everyone’s card.  I think it makes it more personal.) As for the amount in the case of monetary gifts, I guess that’s really up to you.  If it’s important to you to know exactly how much you get and who contributed to the amount, then I guess you would.  If you decide that just knowing the form of gift (cash/check) is enough, then I wouldn’t worry about it.

I agree, I think a list is a must as well. You want to thank people specifically for what they got you, that way they know it just didn’t get throw in a pile among 100dreds of other gifts. Its a nice way to thank them for a gift individually.

Yes, yes, and yes!!!  I did mine online through my wedding website. but I know people who created simple excel spreadsheets to keep track of this!  This way when I wrote my thank you cards I could write a specific thank you mentioning the gift they gave.  I then emailed the list to my mom and my Mother-In-Law because they wanted a way to have and idea of what to give other people when they go to their weddings.  My husband and I will also use it as a guide in the future.  🙂
