In a Pinch: Anyone Have Any Wedding Gift Ideas?

In a Pinch: Anyone Have Any Wedding Gift Ideas?

In the past month or so, we've attended four weddings and, yes, one funeral. Out of the weddings, only one had a registry...and the other three? Well, we're stuck trying to figure out gifts for them. While many of our friends have staples that they rely on (one friend gives a KitchenAid mixer to every couple-to-be, which could be incentive enough to tie the knot), we usually try to find something that's a bit more personal...

...and then, when we can't find anything, we find ourselves at Crate and Barrel last minute with our hands up, saying, "Fine, fine, I'll take six of these dishtowels and a matching oven mitt!"

Anyway. Can you recommend a wedding gift idea? Something that's not crazy expensive, functional for the home, and celebrates the idea of two people making a life together. That's not too hard, right? After all, we've got a year to send it...
