I had my shower this weekend and was overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity. I’m writing my thank you card now and just wonder about one in particular.
My Mom’s two cousins came and brought their elderly mother (she’s 92) with them. The three of them pooled their money and gave me one larger gift. The mother lives with one of the cousins.
I will obviously send a thank you card to the cousin who lives on her own, but what about the cousin and her mother? Do I send two thank you cards to the same house for the same gift?

I think it’s safe to send a thank you card to the two that live together on the same card. It might not be perfect etiquette, but unless one of them keeps every card they receive forever, I think it’s fine to save the paper/postage.

I’m not sure of proper etiquette on this one, but I think I would send each their own card, and avoid the possibility of any hurt feelings. I’m pretty anxious to see what other people think.

I also think you are ok with sending one card if you address the envelope and the card in both their names. This is just a shower thank you. I don’t think people are expecting anything to formal. Just a little acknowledgement.

i think since they got your gift together, it’s ok to send one thank you card to the ones that live together

Send the thank you to each individual person, regardless if they live at the same address or not.
