I have a feeling I know the answer, but just wanted to check.
My husband brought back a bottle of wine, a gift card for a restaurant, and a signed card by about 15 co-workers of his.
Question is…do we send a thank you to all of them? We don’t know their address, so would he just bring it to work and give it to them? Or is an email to all good?

I actually think sending an e-mail to all of them would be ok in this case. It was a group gift so I would say a group thank you is ok.

I would do individual thank yous to everyone who signed the card. And dropping them off at work would be fine.

Yeah I think giving them each a thank you card is the best in this case. He has to see these people everyday! Don’t want to make it hard on him! LOL!!

I will third giving them each a thank you card. Being it is a work thing, best to play it safe. I also think he can just take them to work, nobody will remember how they got it, just that they got it.

Hmmm we got some mixed answers here!

He should say thank you somehow. I think email or individual cards delivered at work is fine. If I were him, I may feel weird handing someone a thank you card if there is no mailboxes or desks or anything. I think an email may be ok in this case.

I have about 75 co-workers and they are always taking up collections for someone’s wedding or baby gift. Usually everyone puts ONE thank you card up on the bulletin board thanking everyone for their generous gift, or whatever. I think it’s totally fine to send just one card to the whole department.

@underwoohoo: I’m glad somebody else gave this answer, because that’s exactly what I did.
We usually just circulate a card and an envelope around the office when an occassion comes up, so just because somebody signed the card, doesn’t necessarily mean they chipped in.
We all always just write one card thanking everybody and post it on the bulletin board.

One big thank you card or individual ones are fine. I’d definitely avoid just e-mailing though. Even though they’re co-workers and maybe not close friends, they still deserve the courtesy of a handwritten note.
