Wedding season is upon us, and with all the festive attire and free champagne comes the dread of purchasing the perfect gift. We aren't saying that the happy couple won't enjoy new towels or that set of spatulas, but allow us to suggest a few fun and memorable items that might not be found on their registry.

Clockwise from top left: 8x12 Boat Wood Frame by Edge $192, Bride & Groom First and Forever Cookbook published by Chronicle Books $35, Assorted Glass Frames by J.Devlin $20-$46, First and Forever Recipe Box published by Chronicle $16.95, Headless Vintage Cake Topper $45

If you know the couple well and have a good sense of their taste you can't go wrong with some personalized art. Grab some anagram tiles and whip up a sign donning a new last name, or let us frame some flashcards commemorating a special date or sentiment. As long as the gift comes from the heart you should have no fear in breaking free from the registry!
