So, your coworker is getting married and you want to know the proper gift etiquette. There are a few factors to take into consideration before you buy a wedding gift for a coworker, starting with whether or not you were invited to the wedding. If you're close enough to this person—inside or outside of the office—to be invited to share in their wedding day, you should buy them a wedding present. While it depends on the nature of your relationship and how long you've been working together, a gift between $50 and $100 is usually a good bet.

Start your search with the couple's wedding registry and go from there. (If you think your coworker is registered with The Knot, you can search for their wish list here.) Workplace teams might also choose to go in on a registry item together, with each person chipping in. If you decide to go off-registry, we've included several picks in this price range.

If you weren't invited to the wedding, you're under no obligation to give a gift. If you're still interested in gifting your coworker something when they say "I do," a small keepsake sends the right message (sweet, but not over-the-top). We've provided plenty of appropriately lower-priced wedding gift ideas ($18-$40) that fall into this category. And—if you're newer to the company or you don't know the happy couple all that well—you really can't go wrong with a gift card.
