10 wedding gifts with heart

Sometimes a person's creativity cannot be contained in the confines of a gift registry. It's important to pick out essential items, like flatware and blenders, but deviations from the list are OK and even welcome.

For their wedding, Rita and Peter Gudan decided on a potluck theme. In lieu of gifts, friends and family helped out with the photography, music and catering. While they did register at Amazon, they received many gifts not on their list.

"We were deeply grateful for everything, but the most meaningful gifts were definitely the help we received, the handmade and sentimental items," said Rita.

To inspire you for the upcoming wedding season, here are 10 gift ideas sure to delight your soon-to-be-married-loved-ones as they feather their nest.
