Do they currently live together? If not, you could always get them some basics like kitchen essentials, bath towels, etc. If they do (which is why my FI and I are doing a VERY limited registry), then there are very few things they need or want. You could buy a whole slew of novelty ideas, but based on their personality, they will either use them or toss them, like the W bottle stopper we have or the “W******” key holder that showed up!

@tashpavez:  I would LOVE something like that. I think having something that personal that you can keep as a keepsake would be great, especially since he has already asked you to write up their wedding story. Frankly, I rather have something great to hang on my wall than a “keepsake” that will collect dust until we can get rid of it 😉

It is not memorable in the sense that it will last a lifetime, but I really like the idea of the Year of Wishes candles. They have a candle for each month and each has a charm inside that you find when it is melted with a good wish to the couple.

My family always gives cash/checks as a gift for weddings (from what I understand, its an Italian tradition, but I can’t speak for all Italian people, just mine!), and it is so nice. My fiance and I live together, and I have no idea what to register for, since we own everything (I went a little crazy buying for our kitchen…). I know it seems impersonal, but with everything you have to pay for for a wedding, it is really nice.
