I think you just thank him for the gift. A thank you card is not an apropriate place to discuss a reason for not inviting someone.

@Stace126:  personally, I wouldn’t bring anything up.. I would write a kind thank you note and call it a day..

Echoing all the PPs, send a thank you card for the gift but do not bring up not inviting him.

@Stace126:  i think if you just send a thank you card thanking him for the generous gift that would be enough.  i doubt, given the circumstances, that he would have attended the wedding anyways let alone expect to be invited.

Just send the thank you card. I doubt he expected to be invited.
