I gave him a nice card telling him how much I love him and how lucky I am to have met him. He liked that.

I won’t be giving my FI a gift the day-of. It’s the single most expensive day of our lives, no need to buy something else! Honestly I feel like it’s a marketing scheme to get us to spend more money.

If you really want to do it, can you sell something of yours on Craigslist or Ebay or pick up a few babysitting jobs or something to pay for the watch? I personally don’t think you should spend money that is at least half his on something that you say yourself he doesn’t want! As much as I’m sure he’d appreciate the sentiment, he’s pretty clearly not into spending the money.

OMG you guys are making me feel so much better because I was trying to figure out what in the world I would get my guy.  I planned on writting him a letter, may be send him a sexy photo text while getting ready.  I feel a lil less pressure now to figure out an actual present!

@MrsFitness:  Can the two of you afford it? If so, do yoou do the grocery shopping? Can you add a sum of money to the grocery order each week until you have enough for the watch? That’s about the only way I can think of that you could surprise him unless he checks the receipts.

@MrsFitness:  I also don’t work outside of the home. I’ve been selling stuff on Craigslist for comission and doing odd jobs to make a little money to surprise DH with a Christmas gift!

So my vote is to make a little of your own money, and surprise him with the watch! It’s not really a gift if he’s paying for it.

@BrandNewBride:  By that logic, no stay at home mother has ever given her husband a gift.

I gave my husband a pair ofo cufflinks for the wedding, and some original copies of hardy boys books. And he gave me a gorgeous necklace that I’ve barely taken off since! We exchanged them a few days early but it was so special to us.
