Almost every bride and groom you’ve known has probably made a wedding registry. They signed up for a throw pillow at Pottery Barn, a toaster at Target, a set of china at Bloomingdales…You get the point- the list goes on and on. Of course registries were created for a reason. The bride and groom don’t want a bunch of repeat presents or a heap of knick-knacks that say “YOU’RE MARRIED”. Nevertheless, if you’re very close with the couple, you may be tempted to go a step beyond the registry safe-route, and there’s nothing wrong with that. With so many options though, gift hunting can be a drag, no matter how much you love the recipient. We did some searching and found a sweet selection of meaningful, offbeat gifts. Gifted on their own or in combination with that cookie jar the newlyweds really wanted from Pier One, these little tokens of love will put a smile on their faces.
