I just had a surprise wedding shower at work! Yay! A few of the people went together on a few of the gifts - so, do I write each person a thank you note or do I give them one to "share"? I'm guessing one for each person, but I'm not sure what the proper way to do it is. Some of the stuff I got...Makes up for the 4 people only showing up to my actual wedding shower Smiley tongue

    I'd write one note per person if it's feasible, but if there were like 10+ people contributing per gift, then maybe a thank you email to that group would be enough. Smiley smile

    A thank you note to each person would be a lot more personal and probably more appreciated! 馃槉

    So cute and fun! I would write a note for each person thanking them for the gifts even if more than one person went in on the same one.

    If I was one of the people I'd definitely appreciate an individual note. It recognises each person that gave to you that way - because they each gave, just not separate small gifts.
    So happy for you!!

    I would do individual notes, it's more personal. Also you are going to love that air fryer, I got FH one for Christmas. It's awesome!

    That is awesome, congrats. Sorry to hear about your low attendance at your other shower. Mine is in 2 days, and I'm nervous. If it were me, I'd give them each their own thank you card.

    Yayy air fryer! Lol, I鈥檇 say it would be better to write a note to each individual person. At my work when we鈥檝e thrown showers for people they usually send out a general 鈥渢hank you鈥 email to the entire group, but then again the gifts they鈥檝e given out at my work have been less extravagant.

    I wrote out individual ones per gift if 2 people went in on 1 gift I only gave 1 card.

    Wow! What a great surprise!! Congrats!

    I would give each person their own Thank You note, even though some of them went in on a gift together.

    I agree with most, an individual thank you to each person is probably best! Unless, as someone said, it was a group of like 7 to 10 people, than maybe just one letter! I think individual ones will be very appreciated!

    That's so sweet that your coworkers had a shower for you! I would write individual thank you notes to each person.

    You can always say "Thank you for contributing to my shower and gift" instead of specifically thanking each person for each item, since you may not know how they chipped in. But I would think an individual thank you to each person would be much appreciated by all.
