Sometimes shopping the wedding registry feels impersonal, but going off-registry can be risky, especially if you don't know the couple well. Our secret to a meaningful and creative wedding gift?

Choose a theme with the couple's interests in mind; start with an inexpensive item on the registry and then make it special by adding something homemade, vintage, edible, or personalized. This week, we used that method to put together the perfect gift for the coffee lovers in your life.
