Gift Tiff : Giving thanks to multiple givers of a single gift

Q. What is the appropriate way to thank multiple givers of a single gift.

A. If the givers are all in one setting, such as an office, household, etc., you may hand write one group thank you note that can be either passed around or posted in some common space. If the givers are individuals or several couples who live in different places, you should hand write separate notes to each.
