TYs - duplicate gifts

Just curious. If you get dup gifts, do you thank each person as if you are keeping it, or tell one party you are returning it and tell them what you got in its place?

    I would never tyell someone I was returning their gift.  I'd write the note as if I'm going to keep it, because I am keeping one of them, and then just exchange it.  It's not like they will know the one you're using is from Aunt Sally instead of them.

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    Thank them for their thoughtfulness, and do NOT tell them you're returning it.

    I wouldn't tell them about the duplicate. Just thank them for the gift, they do not know what others gave you.

    Just use your noodle here. Why would you tell someone you were returning their gift? That's rude and should be a no-brainer. "Aunt Sally, I really loved the Crock Pot, but I actually returned it and bought a huge vibrator instead for when DH travels. Been lovin' it so far!!" Thank everyone as if their gift is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    Thats what I thought too. Just a sanity check. I know that if it were me and someone I am close to, I would be happier to hear that they bought something useful. Hey - we had two choppers - now we have a chopper and a salad bowl. Not so much dear Aunt Sally.

    I got a few duplicates, and I wrote each person a thank you note. There's absolutely no reason why I need to tell one of them that I returned the gift. When they come to the house, after all, there's the canister set, coffee maker, etc.

    As far as both gift givers are concerned, THEIRS is the one that you kept! Yeah?
