I have a couple questions about shower thank you cards. Even though some gifts were purchased off of our registry (so are for both of us), should the thank you notes be signed by just me?
And I also received checks from a couple of people (my mom’s friends) who said, "You’re old enough now, you shop for yourself." Does the same rule apply (i.e. note just from me)? And I wasn’t quite sure based on what they said, but did they intend for me to spend it on myself? Or for our home together? I don’t know if that’s a weird question, but several of the gifts I received were things like jewelry that are really just for me. I just don’t want to write something like, "Thanks, this will help contribute toward our house downpayment" (or whatever) when they were really hoping I’d use the money to buy myself a purse or something.

I mostly signed the cards just from me. If the people knew my husband better than me, or they soecifically wrote the card out to he and I (most just wrote the card to me), I signed it both of our names. Hope this helps!

I say use it for whatever you want to and if that’s for a downpayment, so be it!
Also, I signed all of my notes from just me.

At my shower, I signed the thank-you notes myself. My Mother-In-Law threw me a shower and for those presents, we both signed them. Most of the cards we received at that shower were addressed to both of us, so I thought that seemed better. Also, I think it’s okay to use the money however you want/need and they will appreciate it either way. Even if they did intend for you to buy yourself a little goody, they won’t be offended by you wanting to save it for your house deposit or whatever.

Same here-for the shower I signed just from me except for one my family through that my Fiance attended as well so he signed those.
