I like the cupcakes idea but perhaps while you’re away you can arrange for pizza to be delivered for everyone for lunch. Just make sure they know it was from you.  It might be nice.

edible treats from your honeymoon location are a great idea. if not, how about bfast the day you get back in the office – bagels or donuts?

I think that if you wanted to go as far as treats for the office it would surely be a nice gesture, however thank you card for the office is absolutely appropriate. A cute postcard from your honeymoon spot would be perfect! If I were you I’d skip the treats and do the postcard/thank you card, and this is coming from someone who aims to please as many as possible in any given situation.

I’d def suggest a thank you card asap and some treats from the honeymoon. I like the idea of ordering a pizza, if you think it will be appreciated

I made some choc chip cookies and got a nice thank you card from hallmark that said “Thanks to All of You” and put it in the kitchen. It was a hit, who doesn’t love food!

That would be nice if you got them pizza for lunch one day while your on your honeymoon, nowadays you can just call a pizza place and order ahead of time…that way they know youre thinking about them even on vacay!  And of course the thank you note is a must!

Oo lunch for everyone! That’s even better. Jimmy Johns sandwiches or pizza…that all goes over well =]

I think a thank you card and lots of edible treats from the honeymoon spot (that you bring in on your first day back) would be appropriate.  I personally think lunch is a little overboard.  Be generous in the amount of edible treats you bring back – or, depending where go, if you could get 20 of a ‘little’ something and write a ‘thank you for your generous gift’ attached to it, you could deliver it to each person.  That would make me feel appreciated.

I like the idea of arranging for a thank you treat or lunch for your coworkers as a thank you gift.  My officemates threw me a lovely shower and chipped in for a gift card, too.  When I returned to work from my honeymoon, I brought in a tray of muffins and a thank you card that I placed in the office kitchen.

I like the idea of buying pizza or (in my office) bringing in bagels for the office. I don’t think you need to write out separate thank you notes, as the gift was from the group. If the gift is from a group, you only need to write a thank you card to the group. But food goodies are nice!

I’d bring in something edible and a thank card when you get back.

Edible treats of any sort will be much appreciated I’m sure!!  I’d also do a thank you card and probably a mass thank you email as well.
