I think it would be most thoughtful to send thank yous to each person

Send a thank-you to each person. They still contributed their own money, even if it was a group gift. 

 

And for pity’s sake–get your butt to Target and buy some thank-you notes. You can buy a LOT for less than $10 and pick up some mascara to boot while you’re there. You’re going to need them anyway by July!

I’m feeling your pain but yes you need to write each individual person a thank you.

@furtureffcaptwife:  Buy more thank-you notes. They don’t all have to match, or be custom-made. It’s great if they are, but if you run short there is nothing wrong with just getting more. None of the guests are going to compare them to make sure they got the same ones.

(Since they are work colleagues, if by some remote chance someone does see that they are different and remarks on it, you can just say “I found a bunch of cute notecard styles and couldn’t decide which I liked best, so I got more than one style. Isn’t stationery fun?”)

It is proper to send a handwritten thank you note to each individual even if a bunch of people went in together on a gift.  Yes, it feels silly to write 4 “Thank you for the lovely KitchenAid stand mixer” notes but it is the polite thing to do.  Don’t send emails…it’s a bit too impersonal.

You can always use blank cards instead of thank you notes.  But like PP mentioned…Target has tons of them for cheap.
