Buying the perfect wedding present isn’t as easy as it may seem. We hear from guests all the time who ask us if they should surprise the couple with a unique piece of home decor, such as an antique, or go for something more classic that the newlyweds could use on a daily basis. It can be stressful and we totally understand. Our expert advice is: always stick to the registry. But, if you have decided to go in a separate direction, our rule of thumb is: better safe than sorry (especially if you don't know the couple very well). Afterall, wouldn't want your gift to end up forgotten in a corner of their basement because they either hate it or don't really need it.
