I am really torn on how to thank my co-workers who went in on a gift for my work bridal shower. My job share partner hosted the shower (and also got me a gift), so I thought it would be nice to give her a regular sized “thank you” card. My supervisor got me a very very generous gift and I want to thank her as well with a regular sized card. Now, here’s where it gets tricky… everyone else in the office (minus two people – one of the two still showed up at the shower) went together to buy be a joint gift (eight people – one of the eight no longer works in the office and has moved to a new job). The joint gift consists of 9 different presents (salt & pepper grinders, bake ware set, glasses, recipe card collection, laundry basket, dish towels, rubbermaid containers, beverage dispenser, and a popcorn machine). I have bought a regular sized card that says “With Warmest Thanks to All of You” on the front. I thought I could put this on the bullentin board in the office, but the one girl no longer works with us so she wouldn’t see it, and the two girls who didn’t go in on the gift would. I still want to thank the one girl for coming to the shower as well. I got thinking it might be better to write out individual thank you cards (the smaller ones), but then I got stumped on what to say. How can I thank 8 different people differently for the same 9 gifts? How can I make them personal? The thing is there were about 29 people at this shower (only 10 from my department) and the rest from other departments. I will be writing indivudal thank you cards to the other 19 co-workers, so I don’t want it to seem like I just got lazy and did one card for the group. Any help with how to handle this situation would be greatly appreciated. Also, any advice on how to thank the group for the all the gifts I recieved would be helpful. I find it difficult to say thanks for 9 gifts in one card.
