I would assume the gift was from both of them and proceed accordingly.

address it to both of them

We received gifts from two couples who only had one attend the wedding- thank yous were addressed to both, and we mentioned the “missing” party- something like “We’re sorry you weren’t able to make it, here’s the link to photos so you can share in the day…”

I would rather address it to her and be sure that I said thank you, rather than leave her off. Better to be safe than sorry! I think thanking someone for a gift they didn’t give you  (if it isn’t actually from her too) is less of a breach in etiquette than not thanking someone at all!

Don’t ever worry about “weird hidden rules of etiquette”! The purpose of etiquette is to make others more comfortable. Always do that and you’ll ever be accused of bad taste.
