Is it okay to go off-registry for my friends’ wedding gift?

One of my friends is getting married in about a month, and I checked out her registry to see what kinds of things she and her fiancé need to start their new life together. And their registry is SO BORING! This couple is creative, and funny, and bizarre, and amazing, and NOTHING on the registry reflects that. Is it okay to assume that they just when scanner-gun happy and that it’s okay for me to save them from themselves?
