@JustBea:  Yes, you need to send a thank you for the gift.  Your previous Thank You was simply for their attending your wedding.

I think you do need to send a separate thank you.  Otherwise, they may wonder if the gift was received/liked/appreciated.  As the gift was after the original thank you, the new thank you will just address the gift, so – not redundant.

yes, you need to send another thank you specifically for the gift.

@JustBea: Personally, I would call them and say that you received their gift and wanted to thank them again for everything. Darling Husband took pictures of us using various items from his friends and emailed them with a jokey thank you/good work since our stupid cards are taking forever. Of course we’re going to send a real thank you card (hopefully very very shortly), but his friends all thought it was pretty funny and I think they liked seeing their items “in action” 😉  Like you, I’d worry that sending another card was redundant or awkward.
