Dear Aunt Gertrude and Uncle Fritz,

  Uncle Fritz, that you so much for the lovely soup tourine.  Hubby, can’t wait to have a dinner party and serve his famous chicken noodle soup in it.

  Aunt Gertrude, you looked absolutely stunning in that purple dress and orange hat.  We will forever look back on the photos of that event remembering you fondly.

It was lovely seeing you both, and hope to see you again before cousin Sally’s wedding next fall.

Love,

BetterSherm and Hubby

@BetterSherm:  Did the gift not just come from the Uncle?  That is what I took from your first post. 

Also are the couple married?

My tweak to @andielovesj is:

Dear Aunt Gertrude and Uncle Fritz,

  Thank you so much for the lovely soup tourine.  Hubby can’t wait to have a dinner party and serve his famous chicken noodle soup in it.

  Aunt Gertrude, you looked absolutely stunning in that purple dress and orange hat.  We will forever look back on the photos of that event remembering you fondly.

Thank you for all your love and support as we start our married life together, and hope to see you again before cousin Sally’s wedding next fall.

Love,

BetterSherm and Hubby

@andielovesj:  I believe the gift came from both the aunt and uncle, while only the aunt attended the wedding

I would say something like this:

Dear Aunt Gertrude and Uncle Fitz,

Thank you so much for the lovely gift. We look forward to using it… Blabla etc. 

We are sorry we missed you at the wedding Uncle Fitz, but we really enjoyed seeing Aunt Gertrude. 

Love,

BetterSherm and Husband

 

So basically thank them both and then go into whatever you want to say to them separately.
