1. I agree that you should send two. 

2. I don’t see a problem with recognizing the amount or saying that you are putting it towards registry items – they are after all what you want (and it’s probably better than saying you’ll use it for something frivolous ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

Good questions. I’ve heard that about not mentioning amount, but I’ve done it for birthday gifts, and I don’t think it’s inappropriate (after all, they know how much they gave you, so why would it be secret?). I wouldn’t rewrite those or anything.

I agree that you should send separate thank yous to people who went in together on a gift but live at separate addresses. But it can be nice to mention both people in each. I just did this with two friends of my mom’s who went in together: I wrote in one thank you “It was so thoughtful of you and Martha…” and in the other “Patsy and you are so thoughtful…”

Trust your insticts, which seem geared entirely towards gratitude and graciousness, and you’ll do fine. When etiquette rules get vague or confusing, those two values will always guide you in the right direction ๐Ÿ™‚
