That happened to us.  I had our guest list in excell and highlighted the peoples names as I went along sending out thank you notes.  I had 5 gifts and 8 people.  I just asked my MIL, she knew what her siblings  gave us.  That left two people and one gift so I just asked them.  They were both my cousins.

I would ask your mom and his mom to spread the word that you’d really love to finish sending out the thank you notes, but haven’t a clue who sent you a couple items. Someone will speak up and say that they sent item 1 or something.

Laur12:  yep, I had this problem. I sent out an email to the whole wedding guest list, BCCed, minus the people who I knew had given us gifts. It basically said thank you for the wonderful weekend and oh by the way, could anyone help us track down the generous gifters of these gifts so that we could thank them appropriately? The gifters IDed themselves and all was good. (I thought a little bit about whether it was rude to send this email to people who potentially hadn’t gotten us a gift – but I decided it was ruder not to figure out the gift givers and thank them, and this seemed like the most polite yet effective way.)
