Finding great wedding gifts under $75 might require a bit of creativity, but it's totally possible to get something the spouses-to-be will love without breaking the bank. We've rounded up some great options below, though, we do advise sticking to what's on the couple's registry (find their wish list on The Knot), if you can. But there are a few occasions when diverting from the registry might be appropriate—for example, if everything in your price range is already purchased by other guests-to-be, or if the couple has no registry at all. Regardless of your reasoning, we've got you if you need help with gift ideas.

While we don't typically advise guests to drop below the $50 mark (if you aren't sure how much you should spend, get some insight here), there are plenty of low-budget, big-impact gift options out there and we've curated a collection of some of our favorites. You can gift the happy couple essential kitchen equipment, useful tech gadgets and even fun experiences. And at the end of the day, it's really the thought that counts when it comes to celebrating the union of your loved ones. Ahead, we've rounded up the best gifts under $75 for newlyweds.

High-quality bedding is always a great choice when it comes to a wedding gift the couple will actually use. This set from Great Bay Home is so luxurious, made from super-soft Turkish cotton. Just double check the couple's preferred mattress size ahead of purchasing.

2. Hamilton Beach BrewStation 12-Cup Coffee Maker

coffee maker wedding gift under $75

This easy-to-use coffee machine will churn out fresh pots of java in just a few minutes. It functions like a traditional drip coffee maker, but uses an internal tank instead of a breakable glass carafe, which holds the coffee inside the machine, dispensing it one cup at a time (and therefore keeps it super warm). Pair this gift with a bag of your favorite grounds for a personal touch.

3. JoyJolt 5-Piece Glass Mixing Bowl Set With Lids

This sturdy set of mixing bowls will surely come in handy for everything from holiday baking to storing leftovers. The five glass bowls neatly nest together for storage and all come with a matching lid. And they're dishwasher safe for the easiest cleanup.

4. Hawkins New York Essential Low Bowl, Set of 4

Green nesting bowls wedding gift under $75

Low-profile bowls are so in right now and this set of four is perfect for adding some flair to the pair's weeknight pasta meals. Stoneware construction makes them sturdy enough for nightly use (or twice a night, since we think these bowls are great for after-dinner ice cream, too). They also stack beautifully in a cabinet, to boot.

5. Kodak Step Digital Instant Camera With 10MP Image Sensor

After all of those wedding photos, the couple will be experts at posing for the camera. And they'll be grateful for this digital instant camera to capture their first few special moments as a married couple. They can print photos straight from the camera and also snap photos in six picture modes, including full color, sepia and black and white.

Once they're hitched, we think the lovebirds will appreciate an appliance that makes romantic breakfasts in bed easier and more delicious. It comes with a measuring cup and six different cooking settings, so they can perfectly adjust the level of crispness and get a consistent size every time. Also, gifting this waffle maker nearly guarantees an invite to the couple's house for a fun brunch—bring over waffle toppings like syrup and fresh fruit and you're golden.

8. Libbey Acaciawood Cake Dome With Lid

Shopping for a couple with a sweet tooth? This rustic, yet elegant cake dome is the way to go. We love the touch of class it brings to a countertop and how the glass dome will keep cakes, pies and cookies fresh. It's so much prettier than storing baked goods in plastic containers.

9. Virgin Experience Gifts Bake With a Legend at Home: Virtual Masterclass for 2

It's also great for listening to music and podcasts around the house when they return home, too.

11. Nambé Enameled Pet Bowl

For couples with a beloved fur baby, this pet bowl is a practical and pretty gift. Boasting non-slip grips so it stays in place, this (dare we say chic) bowl is equal parts form and function. The silhouette feels elevated and elegant, and the metallic exterior makes this pet bowl seem more high-end sculpture than vessel for kibble.

12. Amazon Echo Dot Smart Speaker With Clock

This voice-activated device is sure to be a hit in any home. Whether the happy couple keeps it on a bedside table for use as an alarm clock or in the kitchen for some cooking tunes, it's a wonderful addition to any abode.

If you're seeking a great wedding gift under $75 for dog parents, we've got just the thing: this fashionable and functional dog leash. There's a whole rainbow of colors to choose from and your loved ones will especially like that this leash is resistant to odors and dirt. Did we mention it's also waterproof? Even Rover needs to be walked in the rain, friends. If you have some extra budget room, add in the matching collar or doggy bag carrier.

17. Michael Aram Pomegranate Mezuzah

wedding gifts for Jewish couples

For a Jewish couple tying the knot, a mezuzah is a sentimental choice for them to hang outside of their shared home. This mezuzah showcases a pomegranate sculpture (a symbol of unity and life). FYI: This mezuzah does not include a scroll of parchment paper with scriptural verses as some do. (Psst: This Spode Judaica Serving Bowl, $69, is another nice wedding gift idea under $75 for Jewish loved ones who already have an heirloom mezuzah they love.)

18. Le Creuset Craft Series 5-Piece Kitchen Utensil Set

Le Creuset is a culinary brand many know and love (and it's known for it's Dutch ovens), but you don't have to spend a ton of money to buy newlyweds something from the French company. Instead, for a wedding gift under $75, opt for this utensil set that includes two spatulas, a spatula spoon, a basting brush and a stoneware crock to hold everything in one place. Seven colors on offer means you can find a great hue to match their kitchen, regardless of their aesthetic.
