    If they didnt register I would get them a gift card or money. If they did register I would look at the registry and see if there is anything on there Id like to get them. It also can depend on your relationship with the bride and or groom.

    I usually try to buy the couple a gift from their registry, as long as they register at a store that I can get to easily (we live in the country, and our nearest town doesn’t have a ton of homegoods stores). I don’t love giving cash, it just doesn’t feel personal, but if I can’t get to a store to get an item off the registry I will give cash. And if there’s no registry I will also give cash (unless I know the couple very well, and know for sure that they would like a certain boxed gift).

    If they have a registry, I would get a gift from the registry. THey went through all that work to create the registry. I feel compelled to use it! If there is no registry or “no boxed gifts,” I would get them a gift card to a popular store like Target or something.

    At the shower, I give off the registry.  And at the wedding, they get sweet moolah.

    For the shower I give a gift from the registry and for the wedding I always give cash. This is what most people do where I’m from, you see very few boxed gifts at weddings.
