We received a gift from one of DH’s aunts. The aunt (Jane Smith) couldn’t attend the wedding because she stayed home to look after the grandkid. The grandkid’s parents (Ann and Bob) attended the wedding (Bob is DH’s cousin).
The card that was in the package just says “This item was purchased by Jane Smith”. I am guessing she didn’t fill out the card form online when she ordered it.
I’m wondering if we should write a thank you note to her (Jane Smith) only, or do we send thank you cards to Ann and Bob too? Ann and Bob haven’t sent a separate present. We don’t know if Jane Smith meant this to be a group present from the three of them, since the gift card doesn’t say so.

@mspartridge: Tough one. I would only send it to Jane Smith.

I’d try to get whichever parent is aunt’s sibling to talk to aunt about it. If not, I’d write it just to the aunt.

I would send it to Jane. But I would also send one to Ann and Bob for attending.

Send Jane a TY. I wouldn’t worry about the other two yet, they may not have gotten around to sending their gift-we had a few wait about a month to send them.

It is most polite to always assume that guests are doing the right thing. It is best to reply with facts, then with speculation. Thank Jane for the gift, and do not include the others.
If they were meant to be on there, they will definitely contact you to correct the error.
