A nice bottle of wine maybe?

Rich people like art and stuff like that to put in their homes.  Does your husband know their decorating style?  You could get them some sort of artistic bowl or table piece (like a small sculpture type thing). 

And, even if they’re rich… I’m pretty sure they’d appreciate cash!

You could donate to a charity in their honor. Or Buy them something everyone uses… Like a nice picture frame.

Maybe an experience? Hot air balloon ride?, helicopter excursion or something along those lines. Those can run expensive though, can you go together with other couples?

I’d say you can never go wrong with a couple of bottles of wine or champagne, especially if you don’t know them well – it would be silly of them to be expecting you to spend a ton of cash or know their style.

We made a donation/loan in their name through Kiva.org last year for a high income couple with no registry.

I think buying them an experience or a date night is a good idea. I second like the cash idea. You can NEVER have too much money. The only reason I don’t like the wine idea is because I feel like people always bring wine. I went to a wedding this past weekend and my friend (the bride) received 10 bottles of wine. She doesn’t even like wine, and neither does the groom!

I told her I’d take it.

I was going to suggest the wine, too. We attended a wedding a few years ago for an older, well established couple. They didn’t register and giving them money would have been useless so we gifted them with a bottle of Dom Perignon. From what I gather, they loved it.

Do tHey have a particular interest? Getting themstickers for a show or sports game is always a goodidea. Also, books. Something that you’ve heard about. Maybe something about homes or travel, maybe relationships. Everyone likes books. Most collectors love first additions. Maybe you could look into something like that. Something unique maybe? An object for their home, like a vase or wall hanging. I read about a gift that was a antique photo of their venue. They found an old photo and framed it. Kind of old charm. Even something silly and cute like a picnic basket, no matter how rich you are, you’ll have a blast on a picnic. I mean… you’re still in love… you’re getting married! You could even get them a map and informational brochures of the place they are honeymooning. Maybe even a gift certificate for a meal where they are staying.

All the above ideas are nice.  I think this gives you a chance to be creative though!  I’d stay away from artsy stuff because that really is a personal preference.  You could do something like a personalized wood cutting board with their monogram in it.  If they travel a lot maybe his and hers personalized toiletries bags?  I got a really nice wooden box for my wedding that had an inscription of “Memories from June 8, 2012….”, which I can use to keep some of the special things from my wedding.  It’s about 12″x9″x8″, so big enough to keep a few special cards, our programs,invitation, etc., and it’s made of pretty cherry wood.  That was one of my favorite gifts actually and nothing you could ever register for.

Monogramed white towels or pillow cases are always good, or how about a gift certificate to a nearby specialty food store?
