I wouldn’t put an amount, it just seems weird to me. I would just thank them for their generosity & write what you’re going to put it towards.

I’d say “Thank you Mr & Mrs. Jones for your generous check. We used it for XXX”

You heard correctly. There is no need to mention the amount of the check or cash in the envelope. Just let them know what you intend to use it for.

Yes. “Generous cheque” is a great way of wording it. I would try to be  a little more specific though when you tell them what you are using it for. “We plan to put it towards purchasing our china”.

Definitely don’t mention the amount.  If it’s some HUGE number (like $500, $1000 etc…) make a big deal about how generous it was, but otherwise leave the amount out of it.

You also mentioned a little word or two about how you plan to use the money, and although I don’t think that’s a “rule” necessarily, I always make sure to mention specific plans in my thank-you’s.  I think it’s a nice personalised tough.
