    5 wedding gift ideas for the bride & groom who have everything

    You've been invited to the wedding of the couple that has it all. Successful in both love and life: they are financially astute, have already taken a sizeable chunk out of the mortgage for their tastefully furnished abode, are escalating upward on their respective career ladders, not to mention being irritatingly gorgeous and crazy about each other. Sigh. So the question is; what do you get the bride and groom who already have everything?

    Make it personal
