Once the wedding date is fixed and you have sent out the invitations, it’s time for you to start receiving the gifts from your relatives and family members. It’s a good thing to send the gift a week or month before the wedding to the happy couple. A few years back, the gifts were sent to the bride’s family but now most couples decide to receive the gifts together on a single address which they have to mention in the invitation letter. The gifts will come from different sources and sometimes, you will collect them from different places too and it can be a tough task for the couple to keep a track of every gift. This includes the sender’s name and the date you received it. If you want to make sure that all of your guests receive a thank you note, you have to keep a track of every gift you receive. This way you will also remember the guests to whom you have already sent a thank you note.
Information you should write down on a paper regarding every incoming gift that will help you in the tracking process. The details such as:
- The sender’s name
- His or her mailing address
- A small description of the gift they sent
- Date when you received the gift
- The information about the purchasing of the gift i.e. buyer’s name and store’s information
- Name of the shipment or cargo company
- A little something that you thought when you saw the gift. This will help you to write a thank you note
- The date when you mailed the thank you card.
