I always give cash, but I think in this situation it’s probably your best bet.

I would give them the same gift I would give in any other circumstances. What would you normally do for a cousin of your DH?

Are they living together? If so, a few nice things for there place (towels, mixer, and a small check) would be nice. Other than that, definatly cash is usefull!

Cash or gift certificates to department stores where they can buy either household or baby items as they choose.

I agree with red_pepper_gal: cash or the gift certificate so they can pick what they need would work best.

I agree with the PP’s that cash or gift certificates would work.  They are just starting out and have a baby on the way, so I would think that would be most helpful to them.

I don’t think that the reason for the marriage warrants any change in whether or not to give a gift, but totally agree that in this situation cash would probably be the most helpful to them.
