I selected 3 pieces of jewelry & asked him to buy one as my gift. lol
I’m going to buy him a huge flatscreen or a hot tub. Everytime I’ve ever wanted to buy him something, he buys it before I do. I’m hoping he won’t buy either of these… he has everything else. His b-day gifts always suck b/c I can’t buy him anything good. He gets clothes… seriously lame, I know. I’ve been saving for a big gift for him!
I also thought about re-decorating the basement in his fav sports teams so he can have a “Man Cave”. It will come in handy for when his buddies come over… especially after his little wifey decorates the entire house to be less college frat house & more like a home 🙂

@ RecessionitsaBride – Mr. Luna does the same thing which makes him impossible to buy for. I’ll probably end up doing boudoir photos for him or something (something he couldn’t buy himself, before I could buy it!). 🙂

We agreed early on to forego gifts to each other, but I don’t know if I am going to adhere to our agreement. I was thinking about getting him some cufflinks. I like the idea that whenever he gets dressed up (not that it happens a lot), he will put them on and remember our wedding. I don’t know if he will get me anything, but I do think jewelry is fairly standard.

Ooh, what about a nice new watch? Guys always need a watch.. it’s like what earrings or lipstick are to women 🙂
Or a new gadget… my Fiance was bugging me about getting an iPhone, but I told him to hold off b/c people were complaining about them, etc but I was really going to get him it for Christmas (he bought it anyway- see. He always beats me to it). You could get him an iPod or some other gadget he doesn’t have yet!
Is that too generic? I think mine are pretty boring too. You know your guy though… if he’s sentimental get him something meaningful to the 2 of you. If he’s not, get him a new toy 🙂

I picked it out years ago and can’t wait to purchase – a really nice, old-fashioned, shaving set – razor, brushes, etc. There’s a specialty bath store in town with some beautiful ones. Makes me happy just thinking about it!

Are we talking post-engagement gift, or wedding day gift?

Still trying to figure out what to get Fiance for our wedding. I want to get something special that he’ll always have, but all I can think of is a watch. Any other ideas??

Fi really wants a new watch, like a nice fancy watch! But we have to see where we are on budget and I guess that’ll be the deciding factor! But I’d love to give him that and get it engraved too!

I was thinking of doing the Boudoir thing and getting a nice book together for him. I think it would totally shock him!

I think you should get him something that you know he would love! I really don’t think there is a “standard” gift process.
I did a boudoir book for my husband and he gave me a pearl bracelet and earrings. I love jewelry (especially pearls!) and he knows thats what I was wearing for the wedding.

For my husband’s wedding day gift, I had his ring engraved with a personal message and our wedding date. For my gift, my husband created a coats of arms with our family name. He printed it out on canvas and framed it in a really nice frame. Both gifts cost about $25. 🙂
I think the traditional gifts are a watch or cufflinks for the groom and earrings, a necklace, or a right-hand ring for the bride.

Wait, you’re supposed to give each other gifts??? What?? Oh man… I’d never heard of this and I’m pretty sure my Fiance hasn’t either.
Is “the rest of my life” a good enough gift?

We have this inside joke that I won’t bore you with here. But it centers around pineapples. So I got him silver pineapple cufflinks. His mother will give him my present and a note the morning of the wedding as he is getting ready. I just like the idea of him getting a little message to him the morning of the wedding when everything is so chaotic and the idea of “us” seems completely overwhelmed by the wedding itself.
