It’s a sad and difficult thing when a marriage ends so quickly. For a marriage that ends within a year of the wedding, it’s best to return any unused and non-personalized or non-monogrammed gifts to the sender with a short note, thanking them for their love and generosity and explaining briefly that the marriage is ending which is why you are returning the gift. If the bride and groom find themselves too distraught to write the notes and send the gifts, very close family members or friends may step in and help with this difficult task.

Side Note: Typically wedding guests have up to three months after the wedding to send their gifts. In this case since the wedding is ending within that time frame, wedding guests who have not yet given a gift do not need to send one.
