Baby shower question

I just had my baby shower with all of my girl friends and I have one friend that either didnt have her gift recorded by my host or didnt get a gift at all. I am writing thank you's and I do not want to insult her if she did get me something but I dont want to thank her for getting me something if she didnt? I truly dont mind about the gift but I do want to thank her for coming. What do i Do? Please any advice would be much appreciated.

 Thanks ladies!

Re: Baby shower question

  • Is there an unaccounted for gift?  Go through everything and count how many you have versus how many are listed, if there is an extra then that's it.

  • Unfortunately my hostess generalized the gifts and just put bath soaps and lotions etc. so nothing specific for each person, no quantities etc.

    I would thank her for her presence and say that her being there meant a lot and that you are happy she was there to share this milestone with you.

  • I agree go through the gifts again and see if anything is unaccounted for.

    My life has a superb cast but I can't figure out the plot.
  • If it doesn't seem awkward, you could ask your hostess if she remembers a gift from your friend.  That way, you could at least write a generalized thank you for your "gift" even if you can't write thank you for the ______ .  If all else fails, just thank her for coming.

    ETA: You may want to wait a week to write her note.  Maybe she had the gift sent to your house.

  • Maybe ask another friend that may know that you can comfortably ask in a polite way.

    Totally agree.  Even if she did not give a gift, it is still nice to thank her for showing up.

    This!  Maybe if she came with someone else or is good friends with someone else there, you can find out if she at least walked in with a gift and that will give you a better idea.

  • We had this same issue with a "missing" wedding gift - a friend and her husband definitely came but there was no gift or card or anything from them. I wrote a thank you note saying "thank you for sharing our day with us" and didn't mention anything about a gift and it worked out just fine.
