I would just say thank you for the gift.  Sorry he didn’t show at the wedding.  His loss not yours

I think I would send a card thanking them both for the gift and thanking your aunt for attending. It’s not like it’s any big secret she attended and she’ll appreciate the gesture.

You should ignore his rudeness, and send a lovely thank you note to both of them.

I agree, send a note to both of them thanking them for the gift.  Maybe tell your aunt that it was great seeing her at the reception and you hope you can see them both again soon!
