So I had a shower yesterday from the ladies at my church, and they did a group gift. All the names of the ladies who contributed to the gift were signed to a card. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe I'm supposed to send a thank you to each lady who contributed individually right? And I thank them for the specific gift, not just for contributing to purchase the gift?
Please let me know if I'm right in my thinking or if I'm way off. This way I know how many thank you cards to purchase to send out. Thanks!!
Yes, you are correct. You should send a separate thank you note to each of the women who gave you the gift. Just thank them each for the gift itself, not just for contributing. If the ladies were also hosts of the shower, thank them for giving the shower as well in your note.
So, I had a similar question. My work gave me a shower and 21 people contributed to a honeymoon fund. So, do I send a thank you to every person or can a send a card to my work addressing all staff. I know it is less personal, but I don't have time to write 21 thank you's for the same gift-- although it was a generous amount. I don't know what to do-- please help me I can't wait to marry my Prince!
Iris, I would go ahead and send out individual cards. If they all had purchased individual gifts you would still have to find the time to write out 21 thank you notes anyway, right! But that is so awsome that so many contributed to your honeymoon though, very cool!! Congrates!! Maybe just write out like 5 or 6 a day for a week, and you will have them all done in no time, without the hand cramp! GL!
