I can see this both ways.

1. If your Mom feels comfortable in reaching out your Uncle, she can very tactfully tell him that the gifts at the store were not clear as to who they were from (she doesn’t even have to mention your cousin and he will assume that any number of other guests/family members possibly purchased stuff that has contributed to your confusion). I’m sure he’d be more than happy to tell her exactly what he got for you.

2. The other option is to refrain from specifically referring to the gifts as has been suggested is the correct format for thank-you cards and say something to the effect of “I am overwhelmed by your generosity and kindness” on both the card to your Uncle and the card to your cousin. Let them both infer from a broader statement what they will.

Good luck!

This happened to me (well kinda).  I simply explained the confusion to my aunt, and she told me who bought what (I had a number of gifts come with like 5 names… somehow they all shipped together but were purchased separately).  If you just say it was confusing or unclear, I don’t see how he can feel insulted.
