From the latest headlines, it seems Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are calling it quits on their marriage from this summer. According to reports, Kardashian and Humphries were married just 72 days before Kardashian filed for divorce. A question that has now been raised is: what should be done with the wedding gifts?
Probably the best practice is to return the gifts along with a thank you note, even if a thank you note was previously sent for the gift. Writing thank you notes and returning gifts during this difficult period may be quite draining, and having a set format will help the couple work through the letter writing process quickly. Here is an example of a thank you note a couple might find useful if they find themselves in a similar situation:
Dear Mrs. Roberts,
Thank you for the towel set you gave Jerry and me for our wedding. The towels are a beautiful color, and they feel so plush! However, please accept the return of this gift due to our impending divorce. We are saddened by this recent turn of events, but we appreciate your kind gesture of a lovely wedding present.
More thank you notes for brides will be available in our new book, Something New: A Bride’s Guide to Wedding Thank You Notes. We’ll have more information on the book in the next few weeks!
