Matt Lauer went empty-handed to his Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie's wedding to Michael Feldman outside Tucson last weekend.

"I haven't done that shopping yet," Lauer told PEOPLE from the airport Sunday, awaiting his return flight to New York. "What's the appropriate amount of time?"

Lauer scoffed at traditional protocol allowing up to a year after the wedding date.

"I think you get de-friended by that time!" he said. "So, no, I have to go out and look. They're such a thoughtful, caring and kind couple, I really want it to be something personal. I'm not going to do just the old registry – like, 'And here's the gravy ladle!' "





Lauer also said he's not the only one at the Today anchor desk who procrastinates. Guthrie and Feldman, who are expecting their first child late summer, have put off their honeymoon.

"She's going for delayed gratification," Lauer says. "She's going to go in April, they were telling me."
