    You could also get them a gift card to one of the places they registered.  That may be a happy medium.

    Honestly we got plenty of mismatched gifts that made no sense but we were totally happy and grateful!  It really doesn’t matter if you give cash + a gift, or 2 not similar gifts.  They’ll be happy no matter what!  A card w/cash might be easier.

    Yeah we had lots of people that did 2 mismatched gifts.  I do that all the time.  If I don’t like any individual things on the registry (or there aren’t any) that line up with my budget then I just pick two things.  I say that’s the best option.

    I hope I’m not being intrusive but just ignore me if I am. I’m curious to know what husbands think is a good wedding gift. (The one he likes that you want to supplement) I know my what my hubby would say and usually, I think “um, no, wayyy more”
