I think you should send two notes. It seems the safest option. Better to be too gracious than not gracious enough!

HHmmm that is complicated.  Why not send a note to ‘The Smith Family".  I think that would encompass your friend and his mom.

I would send two TY’s to be safe.

I would send two notes if they now have different addresses. If they’re under the same roof, send one note addressed to the whole family.

Two notes. Absolutely!  You can never be too polite and I have yet to hear of anyone getting upset becausee they got a thank you note!

Send two because his mom did write you a nice sweet note to begin with so even if the present isn’t from her, you still got a card from her.

I’d send two notes, or just send one to the mom’s address, but address the note to your mom and your friend.  It’s obvious the mom paid for it, so as long as she gets a thank you, I wouldn’t worry about it too much!

I vote for "The Smith Family" esp because you don’t have the guys new address yet anyway, right?

I also vote for "The Smith Family" at her house. That way, she is sure to get a thank you, since she paid for the gift.

I am going to say, just send two notes. No one has ever gotten upset for getting a thank you.
