    I’d send one. If you send two and one gets lost in the mail they may think you never received the second gift. Maybe there’s some etiquette rule that you must send two but if I gave two gifts and received one card thanking me for both gifts I would not bat an eyelash honestly. If I received two cards I’d wonder why the heck they wasted two stamps

    Personally, I would write one and mention both things! We registered with BB&B and single orders are coming with each item shipped separately, so it’s really hard to tell what goes where. I think one note is sufficient and you can call out each item with gratitude.

    nelliemade :  one card. mention both gifts. you don’t need to distinguish whether it’s a shower or wedding gift – just say thank you so much for the stand mixer and dutch oven”

    nelliemade :  I would say just send one thank you, and thank the gifter specifically for both gifts (e.g “thank you for the mixer and the frying pan! We can’t wait to use them” – I think that should be perfectly fine! 

    Believe it or not I’ve given many gifts for weddings and showers and not received a thank you for either one, so you’re already leaps ahead of some people who apparently don’t think thank you’s are necessary. *side eye*
