    @yanamari:  Do whatever gift you are comfortable with. 🙂 If the amount is an issue for you (you can’t spend much) then get them a card, and make them a small gift that is not from their registry, but is from the heart and useful. Or, get them a card and a couple of the $10 gifts from the registry.

    You’d be surprised. I have a few $10 gifts that I’ll be more excited to recieved than a couple of the gifts in the hundreds. 🙂

    @yanamari:  I’d get them something off the registry from JCPenney’s– they started doing coupons again and if you just Google coupon codes for a week, you can usually find a $10 off of a $30 purchase on top of sales prices or else just an extra % off. You can even do free ship-to-store if it’s cheaper online. I’d shoot for $50ish pre-coupon (if that’s comfortable financially for you) and you should be able to get it for a decent amount less!

    ETA: when DH and I were both students and super poor, we bought my cousin/his wife a vintage looking Monopoly board (although it was new), some pop-on-the-stove popcorn, and movie theater sized candy (and a card). We may have even thrown in a cheap bottle of wine. Regardless, it turned out cute and only cost us about $20 at Walmart. It’s the thougt that counts 🙂
