Maid/Matron of Honor has been giving me a hard time for writing separate thank you notes for engagement, shower, and wedding gifts when those gifts are given by the same person in a short time. She says you can write one note that encompasses several gifts for different occassions. Who’s right?

I think you can send one note. Just make sure you mention each gift in the note. Save yourself some postage and some paper!

She’s right but you’re righter! I think it’s a lovely gesture to write separate notes, especially if they are more than the generic ‘thank you for’ type. You don’t have to, but it’s really nice, and a chance to express your love for their support.

I think it is appropriate to write seperate notes for seperate occasions. I mean, if people are going to the trouble of buying you multiple gifts, I am of the opinion that you can write a note for each of them.

My shower and wedding are a week apart and I am still planning to write separate notes for each gift that I receive. The least that you can do for your kind hearted guests (for buying separate gifts and for coming to multiple parties) are to send them a note for each gift 🙂

I would definitely write separate notes. You are right on!

Aha! Now I have the answer to why she was giving me a hard time about it. I just got in the mail a combined thank you note for her shower gifts (October 09) and for the gifts I sent after the baby was born (December 09). A combined note is better than no note at all, I suppose.
