I spent so much time researching gifts for our b.p. that I didn’t think about what to get FI. He’s a total mac guy and obsessed with all things tech. There is a pair of headphones that he has wanted for a while but they are insanely expensive. He would never buy them for himself so I thought that maybe I would buy them as my wedding gift to him. So, what I am thinking of doing is loading an mp3 message to him on one of our iPod touches. I’ll package the already set up headphones (it’s amazing how many steps are required to set these up) with the ipod and enclose a note that tells him to play the mp3. I think its a cute idea and totally us.
Thoughts? Are you getting your FI as wedding gift?

My FI is a golf nut, when I say nut I mean NUT. He bought a membership in the next province and drives 8 hours each way to golf for the weekend. Our other one is about 45 minutes from our house. Plus we’ve travelled the world on the quest for the best golf. Needless to say, I will be getting him something golf related. Probably some of my photography from the courses we’ve been to, or maybe a weekend getaway to a golf resort. Whatever it is, as long as it’s golf related, he will love it! 🙂

@UpstateCait: Sounds great! I’m sure he’ll love it! Are there any songs that are meaningful to you both that you could tack on after your message to make a playlist for him?
For DH I got him a big box o’ stuff since he’s not really a big “hobby” guy. I did boudoir photos, so that was the main gift. The rest was all day of stuff for him and the groomsmen: cologne, socks (with the in case of cold feet label), cigars, chips & dip, scotch, etc. He really liked it but unfortunately the day was so rushed, he opened it alone and didn’t get to enjoy the scotch and cigars with the guys 🙁

I love it and it’s such a personal sweet touch.
I am getting the FI a watch. He has been looking at it for over a year. He would never spend the money on himself to get it, so when I bought his wedding band I negotiated it in and got it for 40% off!
