What about some really nice roasary beads?  They can get quite pricey but some of them are sooo beautiful.

Or you could get him a crusifux chain.

Has he picked out a saint name? A saint medal would be nice.

Also, have you looked at websites like Catholic Relief Service’s Fair Trade store? (http://www.serrv.org/Gifts.aspx). They have cool stuff. Maybe a cross for the wall?

Other ideas:

a journal

a leather bracelet with a phrase like ‘God is love’ on it. (If he’s the jewelry wearing type).

A book on marriage (though I don’t really know any good ones)

Does he do devotional time? Maybe a devotional kit? Like, a bag of coffee/tea, a new journal, a devotional book, some new pens. 

Good luck!

What about your marriage certificate from the church?  The church sometimes has a nice one that the priest signs in addition to the legal one he sends off to the court house.  Maybe you could have a pretty one desinged in prettiful colors in calligraphy; sort of in ancient manuscript design with golds and reds and angels.  If money is an issue, try doing it on the computer or hiring a computer whiz to make one for you.  Ask the priest ahead of time if you have this made up will he sign it.  Also ask if the church has any.

I’m reasonably certain that you can get a papal blessing for your marriage. Your decon has to help you with it and there is some sort of fee, but then *I think* they send you a certificate saying your wedding has been blessed by the pope. That’s an idea.
