Yes it’s great to receive a thank you, yes it’s rude of the other person. I don’t give a gift expecting anything at all in return, to do so in my opinion defeats the purpose of giving. In today’s world things get so hectic and crazy I know I don’t write a thank you to every single thing I receive.
I trust the gift was given out of love and say thank you to the person at the next opportunity. I was never taught to send a thank you, my mother also believed it needed to be a genuine sentiment, not a

If he is too busy to write them, he needs to return the gifts. It is just rude. I had to nag my son to write his, but it doesn’t take long.
Children/young adults need to know how important this is. It is a habit that should be life-long. I have 3 people on my ‘list in my head’ who did not thank me for gifts and they will never get another one.
They were a baby gift, a graduation gift and a wedding gift.
