I like giving a pretty picture frame that they could use for a wedding picture.

I recently bought my coworkr a wedding gift and it was a personalized cutting board – i put a nice quote and then underneath that i put their names and wedding date

I like the personalised cutting board idea. I dislike receiving “decor” gifts from others (like the photo frame already mentioned) because if it isn’t my style I feel bad not using it. Whereas something that is more practical like a nice baking dish or the cutting board can be used and also be put away.

if they drink, a bottle of wine from this year could be nice… they could put it away and open it on their anniversary (1yr, 5yr or 10yr depending on how long the wine needs to age).  I would have suggested champagne, but it would be over the $20 budget.

I like the wine idea (or other beverage of choice). We received sooo many picture frames that we still have some stored away even though we got married almost two years ago.

If she bakes, a ceramic pie pan, pie bird, pie weights and the best pie recipe you can think of. All together easily under $20, practical and personal.

Sorta seemd rude for her to have less than 20 itmes. Why even register then?  haha I like the idea of a nice wine or maybe a homemade gift. I’ve seen people paint pottery, like a platter with their names and wedding date on it, and give that as a gift. Or a homemade book- the start of a recipe book or something similar. Something unique and not junk.

Shutterbug3:  I saw some cute idea of baskets for date nights. Like one may have things for a movie night or items for cooking dinner

Shutterbug3: I’ve made wreaths as gifts before. Think wedding date or new initial etc. If you aren’t crafty you can easily order one of off etsy.

At my wedding shower, I got a cute jar filled with slips of paper that had date-night ideas in it. Maybe something homemade and personalized like that?

Also, I love PPs’ suggestions of a pie kit or recipe book. Since it’s your cousin, maybe start off her recipe collection with some family recipes?

What about a cute ring holder from etsy?  You can have them engraved too…

I agree with the wine bottle! Great idea, and you can get a decent bottle for $20!

What about a “pantry basket” with stuff for the kitchen? Flour sugar baking soda spices? If they’ll be buying a house soon after the wedding that might help them. A friend got one at her shower and loved it. Or a movie night basket? Popcorn blanket candle movie gift card? Can never have enough throw blankets!

I come from a country where cash is a typical gift. Ususally it is accompanied by small gift as a bottle of wine, elegant “fancy” tea (if they are tea drinkers), cookbook or other books (if they are readers), chocolates.
