Hi! I have been to a lot of weddings in my time, and have encountered a lot of different gift list options.

They've ranged from "cash please", to "John Lewis registry", to "your presence is present enough". I've also been to weddings where friends have been living together for a long time, or where they're relocating afterwards, and don't want bulky gifts.

So here are some tried and tested options for when you're stuck or low on cash. Where possible I've included items that I've personally bought as gifts, or own.

*Of course, if the couple has a list, then you're best to stick to it, but if you're late off the mark, you may want to add something small from the below to the water carafe and teacup combo that's left online.

1. A soft recycled wool blanket that's as good for picnics as it is for snuggling up on the sofa.

2. A bottle of champagne.

3. Bed linen that feels like sleeping on actual clouds and will last for years.

4. A personalised map of their love story.

5. A framed newspaper front page from their wedding day.

6. Cocktail ingredients and a pair of nice glasses.

7. A voucher for a great restaurant near their house.

8. Some really lovely coffee to ease into the mornings post-honeymoon.

9. A One for All voucher.
