No registry = give them money or a gift card.  We usually do around 200$.  You can put it in a handmade card or add 5$ matching his-and-her-mugs if you feel like giving a physical gift.  

Don’t worry about their gift to you.  They’ll figure something out.

If it is a gift card make sure its the bride’s favorite store for example everyone in my fiance family likes Kohls so I would give them a Kohls gift card.

Gift cards to commonly visited stores are like money but still feel like you took time to think about the gift a little. I’ve given them for weddings before.

If they want money then I would be inclined to give them what they want. Weddings aren’t cheap, we can all use extra cash for the honeymoon. I like giving money, much easier to give and easy for them to take home at the end of the night. I would give $200 for a couple or $100 as a single.
