Wedding Gifts : What would you buy?

Thumper Logic Thumper Logic
If a person does not have a registry, would you rather buy them a gift certificate or a physical gift that you take to the wedding? Have any of you given virtual gift certificates to places like overstock.com or amazon.com?

I do a bit of both - a bit of money or gift card in the card, and a small gift for the reception. Recently, a pair of friends got married but I couldn't attend and they didn't have a registry, so I sent them a collection of handmade soaps in their favorite scents for their gift and some cash in their card.

Since gift cards have become acceptable gifts, there shouldn't be a problem for virtual gift cards, either - registries are online and guests order from there, so really no difference.

I'd probably get them a gift card. If you know the couple likes to shop online I see no problem with a virtual gift certificate, but I'd still give them a physical representation of it though, like a nice wedding card that says where they can redeem their gift.

We got married a few years ago, and even though we were registered we received plenty of gift cards for various stores. It was all just as appreciated as the physical gifts.

I would do the gift card with money unless I know the couple really wanted or needed something in specifically.
