@Loribeth: I’d call those folks and instead of phrasing it like, “hey, did you give us a gift?” Ask, “do you know who gave us the (enter name or description of gift here) because the card was unsigned, etc.?” If they’re the right person they will say, “I did!” and if not say oh, sorry to bug you, have a good week! and let that be it.

As previously suggested , it’s only 4 people to phone. Just tell them you have an unidentified gift, that you want to ensure that you thank them for the gift , so you are phoning to ask- was the gift from them? or do they have any idea who the gift is from?

What about narrowing down to the two people who don’t know anyone by asking the others, then sending them both a thank you for the “lovely gift”?  You will feel like you covered your bases, they all get thanked, and while they may feel a bit sheepish, all’s well that ends well. 

Or send all four a thank you for attending the wedding, and one might pipe up “oh, did you not get our gift?”
