Baby shower thank you note etiquette

I need yr help pls....how do u go about this.....some of my coworkers put money together and got  couple of things on my registry for a surprise shower for me( Dont know who bought what) Some other ppl gave me things personally. Will it be considered rude if  i gave the group of coworkers one thank you note ...as i dont know who bought what and i will like to thank them for each gift...i dont want to come off as rude....so pls what do you think?

  • I had a similar situation with my co-workers. After my work shower I took treats into work and placed them in a central location with a thank you card attached, saying, "to all staff." I'm also going to give a personal thank you note to those who gave me individual gifts.

    Yes I think this is a great way to go about it!

    This is what I would do :)

    This is exactly what I did and it worked great.

  • while I hate doing thank yous and in the long run people won't remember or hold it against you just do one for all, I believe in thanking everyone individually and being personal with your thank you"s to each of them. Even if you don't know who got you what you can still add a personal touch

  • Thank everyone individually!  There is nothing rude about thanking a coworker for participating in your surprise shower and for their thoughtful gifts, even if you don't specify what the gift is exactly.  I would assume that everyone chipped in an equal amount, so no one person really bought you a specific item.  Even if that was the case, who would fault you for not knowing as it was hardly clear.  

    The treat idea is nice as well, but as an addition to individual cards.  A shower at  work is a really nice thought from your coworkers (not to mention a financial cost), and everyone loves treats :)

  • for co workers I think its perfectly fine to do one big thank you note (posted on the work fridge or whatever) you could also after you think many people have seen the note send out a thank you email.
