wedding gift guide

Your friend and her fiancé are getting married in a few weeks but you still haven’t figured out the right wedding gift. Most of the items that you really wanted to give them as gifts from their registry are already taken and the only things left are a $600 camera and a $500 espresso machine – definite no-no’s on this budget.

You want to give something practical, memorable and useful that doesn’t break bank. Most importantly, its always great to give a gift that you are proud of and that you know your friend will truly enjoy. If you’re worried about straying from the registry, don’t be – you can still use the registry to draw inspiration from what the new couple may need, their personal style and favorite colors.

Remember, always stick within your budget. Always. If you’re in the wedding party, this is all the more important. There are countless gifts that are just as if not more meaningful than that $600 espresso machine. Below are a few suggestions.
