What about a really nice bottle of wine or champagne to open on a special anniversary?

We didn’t register because we had an out of state wedding. I know it’s “tacky” to some, but we were just hoping for gift cards and checks. It kinda backfired though, we only ended up with 17 gifts out of 75 people.

Maybe that’s what they want?

As a wedding gift or shower gift?  If wedding gift, I would just give them cash.

I am kinda one of those brides, we are military so we move often and aren’t quiet in our permanent home! I have a registry though, but I didn’t put alot of particulars on there, mostly LINENS! I am asking for gift cards to Crate and Barrel! I know it kinda seems impersonal, what are the couples personalities? We host alot of get togethers so I love party ware! Or if they are an outdoor couple what about getting them an awesome tent to take on their next camping trip. If they don’t need anything, how about donating to a Charity in their name? Hope these ideas help!

Cash would likely be your best bet.

I’d write them a check. I bet it’s what most people would prefer anyway if it weren’t considered so tacky to ask for. 😉 I’d also bet that’s what they’re hoping for if they didn’t register anywhere.

I definitely say cash, I think its really what most people want over gifts anyways just no one wants to say it.

I wouldn’t worry too much – perhaps cash or you could call a bridesmaid and ask for ideas?
