    With the Switch to the Nintendo Switch, GameFreak retired the in-game NPC: Delivery Guy. In the 3DS games of the past, the Mystery Gift Card would contain the GIFT & the Gift Card for the game's Gift Card album. Since there's no longer a Delivery Guy, the Gift & the Gift Card are no longer linked in any way or fashion.

    In this Generation, the Gift & Gift Card are received at the same time but are technically separate. When the Gift received is a Pokémon, your game IMMEDIATELY recieves the Pokemon and there is no record of this which can be retriggered. Unlike past generations, when the Gift received is an item, there are NO in-game flags associated with the item so you can just use PHKeX to add/add more of the item start using the item immediately.

    If I understand correctly, you are asking if there's a way to create a "save file" for each mystery gift, I assume that you wanna be able to use them multiple times.
    If so, yes, there's a way. The data stream can be stocked into a wonder card file, but you can only restore it using PKHeX. And we are talking about mons, item cards can't be restored and you will have to use PKHeX here again but this time to modify your inventory and add the items.
    Keep the app updated and you should be fine. The wonder cards for the mons are stocked on the Project Pokémon website, you can find the program there as well and guides if you don't really know how to use any of that.
