No wedding gift from employee

Dear Sugar
I got married 9 months ago. I am a director at my firm and the guy under me still hasn't gotten me a wedding gift. I am baffled. Not only are we friends, but we have worked closely together for the past 7 years. I control his salary and bonus so I know that he can afford a present. I went to his wedding, bought him a gift and after each of his kid's was born; I got them gifts as well. What's the protocol on this? Should I say something to him? --Corporate Conundrum

Dear Corporate Conundrum
The passive aggressive way of handling this would be to shout across the office...Hey Joe, have I thanked you for the awesome toaster? My wife was able to make me brownies and pizza at the same time, you rock! The problem with this is that he may not catch on and you will just get more frustrated. The rule of thumb is that you have up to one year to give a wedding gift so try and be patient. If after a year you don't receive anything, chalk it up to poor etiquette. You would think this guy would try and impress his boss, what a moron.
