What is the etiquette for work shower thank you notes? My coworker threw me a shower and I got all gift cards. My workplace is divided into "teams" and everyone has immediate coworkers; however, we all know each other and collaborate from time to time. I got about 5 gifts cards from the different teams (each team did a collection) and that equals out to be about 40 people total. Do I have to write 40 thank you notes or can I write one thank you note for each team.
In the past, people have just written team thank you notes. But, I'm not sure if this is the right etiquette.
