Maybe you could just bake cookies or buy a food gift basket and leave it on the central office table with a “thanks for the shower” note attached?

I’ve never received a thank you for a gift I’ve given at a work event (although we don’t celebrate weddings, just retirements).

My husband’s coworkers hosted a wedding shower during work hours. (I used to work at the same company.)  Two ladies from his department organized the party, and many people put money in to give us several gift cards. Most of the department signed a card.

We wrote a thank you card to “Dear Friends in the Accounting Department,” (It’s a massive corporation, so we specified the department that celebrated) and went on to thank everyone for the thoughtful gift and shower (and cake that they sent home for me!)  Darling Husband handed the card to the lady who spear headed the party, she hung it on the outside of her office door so evenyone could see it as they walked past.

I’m not 100% sure it was the most proper way to thank everyone, but it is the customary way to thank a group who held a party in that office.

My co-workers had a shower for us, and I sent everyone an individual thank-you (to our work address – I didn’t know some of their home addresses).  I only included spouses if they were there.
