    I don't think they'll compare texts, there's really no reason that they'd mention it to each other, so I think you"ll be fine

    I wouldn't say something in case for whatever reason they didn't bring a present. I don't there's actually a way you can raise it without it coming across badly (esp over a text). Well I'd struggle anyway.

    I'd just let it go.
    agree with this.

    if she did misplace it or forget it in her car, I'm sure she'll text and apologists for not realizing and arrange another time to give it to you.

    I'd just be leaving it.

    I agree, I'd just thank them for coming I think. Or else I'd send something that looks like a fairly generic message saying thanks for coming/for the gift and card in case that triggers something, and that would cover you as well.
    Nothing at all. Thing is, DP has a vague recollection of the mum asking where to put the presents, but so much was going on he can't be sure. The party was at a play centre and there was another party from my DS's school there coincidentally so there's a chance her present got mixed up with the other party.
    I think I'll call the centre tomorrow and see if anything got left behind.
    I'm just thinking that if a present I had bought had been misplaced I'd be mortified if the parents thought I hadn't bought a gift or a card, and I'd want to know if it had gone missing. I do understand that it could be incredibly embarrassing if she hadn't bought anything but I would be likewise embarrassed if someone assumed I hadn't bought a present or a card.
    I won't say anything, I will just make enquiries at the centre and with the parents of the other party and if it turns up somewhere I will thank them in person.

    You could bring it up casually next time you see her if she says anything about the party by saying something like "DD was so excited to get the presents as it was her first big party we completely lost track of who gave us what. I've a terrible feeling I've completely mixed up who gave her what!"

    She might then tell you what she gave her.

    I'm shocking though and if I said something like that it would sound incredibly insincere.

    I just find it unusual that there wasn't a card. I understand that people don't always give presents and I am seriously fine with that. I just think cards are important I guess.

    no card is what would make me think perhaps the gift (and card attached) had been lost.

    agree re the gift but it's very odd no card was given either.

    I hate confrontation or possibly offending someone so I would not say anything to them. Good idea with contacting the centre. Surely if presents got mixed up the other party would notice x present was not addressed to them and leave it with the centre (or maybe that is wishful thinking!).

    I know. I think I overuse it for that reason.
