I’m not saying this is etiquette, but it’s what is standard in our office. We throw baby & wedding showers for everyone, and usually the recipient will write a thank you card & post it on the office bulletin board. They usually also do a card for the hosts of the party and give it to one of them to pass around to the rest, or do individual cards. If they got a gift from someone/a group, they do a card for those individuals. I personally don’t think it’s necessary to do individual cards for everyone who went in on a gift, but I’ve gotten one or two like that & thought it was a nice touch. If they throw one for me, I’m personally leaning toward doing a card for the office & post on the board, then individual ones for anyone who gave/chipped in on a gift.

I didn’t get an engagement party, but my office all chipped in and gave me money as a wedding gift.  Since they all love my baked goods, I made cupcakes for my first day back to work I made them cupcakes for their coffee break and left a thank you card on the box.
