Q: Several of my coworkers pooled their money and bought a beautiful rocker for my baby shower. Should I write to each of them, or will one thank-you card suffice?
A: If several means only three or four people, the answer is yes, you should make the effort to write to each colleague. But if it’s closer to ten, it’s more realistic (especially for a new mom) to send only one note to the group. Make it warm and enthusiastic, and be sure to mention everyone by name.
