Giving a wedding gift that’s meaningful, useful, and affordable can be a challenge. That’s why we’re bringing you creative wedding gift ideas with our new “Give This” series. Each week, we’ll show you how to put together a great wedding gift with every budget in mind.

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? Hack the wedding registry! 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 early birds in your life.

For the rise-and-shine couple who is up and at it before their alarm has gone off, we started with bowls and dish towels from the wedding registry and then added fun items like a vintage butter dish, a cheery calendar, and some tasty locally-made jam.

What we included:

Dish towels (Target, $5)

Cereal bowls (Anthropologie, $5 each)

Tray (Target, $20)

Pitcher (Target, $5)

Juice cups (Crate & Barrel, $1 each)

Jadeite juicer (vintage, $20)

Butter dish (vintage, $15)

Jam (Central Market, $4)

Calendar (Paper Source, $22)

This gift idea works with any registry items and any budget; don’t feel like you have to use the exact same products we did to make it special! We recommend that you swap, add, or remove gifts to create something that feels right to you. Here’s how the gift might look at different price points…
