A gift card to a local restaurant would be perfect.  As an older bride who also didn’t register, it was everything we had to have the wedding so the gift cards that we received to restaurants were our only nights out for a few months.  They were greatly appreciated.

I got a few really nice picture frames from guests who don’t really know us well, and didn’t shop on our registry. I thought they were a nice gift, and we can use them to display wedding photos!

Typically money would be the best present if they are not registered.  We attended a wedding where the couple didn’t register anywhere because they wanted cash rather than gifts or gift cards.

If you don’t know them well enough but seriously wants to give them something then what about perfumes or a set of watch….or you can gift them basket of dried or candied fruits…..

Nice candle sticks is what my mom always gives to people she doesn’t know well, or a nice set of wine glasses. (attach a gift receipt just in case).

ETA: Like crystal glass candle holders

Check out places like Costco or Sam’s Club (if you order online, you don’t have to be a member) and you can get “discounted” gift cards. Nice restaurants are typically $70-$80 for $100 worth of gift cards, and they come in smaller denominations. We bought a bunch of these to Ruth Chris and split up to give $50 gifts to our readers, and other “smaller” roles in our wedding.
