Wedding gift for an intensely practical friend who has everything?
August 16, 2013 11:44 AM Subscribe
I have a very good friend who is getting married - I am her maid of honor. She is having a destination wedding, and told guests that she and her husband do not want any gifts, as us making the trip is gift enough. I got a couple small, sentimental things for her that will be meaningful, but I also want to get a nice gift for the couple, especially since they got us some generous gifts from our registry when we got married. More inside...

However, they don't have a registry, and they are extremely practical when it comes to "stuff". They live in a small apartment in NYC, so I wouldn't want to get them any physical things. They make good money, so they buy anything they might need when they need it. They are more well-traveled than anyone I know, so travel gifts to them would be unimpressive. A nice NYC restaurant would be an idea, but she's a vegetarian and neither of them are into super fine dining. Despite knowing this person for over 20 years, I have no idea what to get for her and her husband as a couple, as they are just those type of people who seem to have everything they need and don't really indulge in the frivolous things. I don't want to go the sentimental/sappy/handmade route with the gift for the two of them. Any suggestions on what could be right?
