I recently received a thank you note from a party my daughter attended. We gave three small items, i.e. a shirt, small toy, and hair clips. I have just received the thank you note from her parents, and they only mentioned one of the three gifts. In all of the chaos of opening the gifts, I think my gifts got tangled in with others, and the parents probably don’t realize that we gave three things to her daughter and not just the shirt. Should I ask, or is this being petty?
Given the gift giving that you have described at the party, most likely the card got lost from the three gifts. When things got back to normal and she organized the cards with gifts, she probably honestly didn’t realize that you gave three things and not just one. The thank you for the gift is sincere, and you also know she received the gifts you brought because you saw her open them. I wouldn’t say anything, and just accept that with the chaos of the moment, things weren’t tracked as well as they could have been. It sometimes happens at parties with the best of intentions.
