I almost think I’d list where she is registered and ALSO note that gifts are not required. Work showers shouldn’t follow the same etiquette as regular bridal showers, since the attendees aren’t generally all invited to the wedding! But some people might like to give a gift anyway, and they might like to know where she is registered so that they can get her something she’ll like!

Maybe a note saying something like, “Please see MexicanMami if you’d like to contribute to a group gift card that we, as a department, will be presenting to her.” That way, folks could donate a dollar or two if they were unable to purchase a larger gift, or maybe if they couldn’t contribute, they would feel like they were “covered.” I’d still list the registries.

We use to do alot of the same things at my previuos job. What I would do, is before the shower, let everybody in the workplace know that you are excepting cash. I would say 5-10 dollars per person. Let people know that it is not mandatory. Then, you can take the cash you collect and go to where she is registered and get a gift card. That’s what my job always did. Good Luck, and that’s so sweet of you to do.
