Thank You Note Wording Hints:

Monetary gifts can be tricky. Some etiquette gurus feel that mentioning the amount of money in a thank you note is the social equivalent of burping directly into the face of your dining partner.

Others think that it's good to do so, as it makes your thank you message more specific; as when you would say "Thank you Nora, for the lovely red angora sweater."

In most cases, it's probably best to not mention the amount of money specifically. Doing so could make the giver of the gift uncomfortable. Better to be safe than sorry.
