Why not take advantage of the lazy days of August and do some present-planning for the future? With several friends getting married this fall, I’ve got wedding gifts on the brain, and I bet I’m not the only one.
While the Registry is the ultimate go-to Gift Guide, there are certain instances where you want to go off the registry. These vary with each individual case; perhaps it’s a very close friend whom you’d like to give something more personal, or perhaps the couple’s registry was limited and all the “good gifts” are taken. Maybe you’re the maid of honor and want to give something extra on top of that soup terrine. For whatever reason, if you’re looking to go off the registry (and you feel that the bride/groom would approve of you doing so), here are two thoughtful ideas for that Big Gift to celebrate your friend’s special day.
