I've had the same thing happen. So far, it's happened in Showtime neighborhoods with households that have stage props in the family inventory. I thought maybe that's why the gifts didn't show up. Like the rest of you, I do have the option of writing Thank You cards even with no gifts, and I have my Sims do it anyway - just to ensure their relationships with family, friends - and pets - stay amicable.

I am also having this problem. I just got Showtime but I've had it since I upgraded to the latest patch, which was before I got the EP. I have no mods in either right now. At first I thought it was a mod issue but I guess it isn't.
