@starbuck:  I don’t understand what you’re saying.  You got a group gift and 2 of the women are in same-sex relationship with one another?  Why would that matter about thank-yous?  If they’re a couple, why wouldn’t they get 1 thank you card?  Do you know specifically that each contributed from a different bank account or something?

This seems easiest solved by the mailing address. If the two ladies live together, send one card. If they don’t, send separate cards.

@starbuck:  If the ladies that you are speaking of are in a same-sex relationship, send them a joint card–FI and I would think it’s weird to get two separate thank you cards for the same gift.

If you have an individual relationship with each woman, I think you should send a separate note to each.  To show that you recognize their relationship, you could send them in the same envelope.  However, if you know one of the women better than the other, I would send it to them as a couple.

I’m in the exact same situation. I wrote one card to be mailed to their address and then thanked each of them individually in person. In a similar situation I sent one card to the house but sent an email to each indivdual thanking them.
