Please take a deep breath – yes, it is very impolite to wait two years to send the notes, and yes, you may have hurt or offended someone, but it isn’t doing any good to continue beating yourself up. I think you’ll feel a lot better if you write something, anything at all, and send it to your loved ones, and most of them will appreciate the acknowledgment, even as late as it is. Just apologize honestly and profusely, and instead of talking about how much you’ve used the gift (because you haven’t), instead focus on how touched you were that they came to your wedding and gave such a thoughtful gift. Don’t get hung up on trying to undo the breach of etiquette, because time elapsed is time elapsed – but, you can gain goodwill, and shed some guilt, by reaching out now.

Sending them late is better than not sending them at all. You don’t need to include an explanation as to why they are late.

I agree with the PPs, like the nike commercial says… just do it. Its way better than not at all, and you don’t need to tell them why they are late or what you’ve done with them, just say “the vase is beautiful!” “the pots and pans were so generous of you!” you got it! No worries!

Today is a new day, and it could be the last day you are late on your thank you’s 🙂 Stop beating yourself up, block the “a) and b)” out of your mind, and finish them. Good luck!
