I want something sentimental but not sappy. Cufflinks, watches, jewelery are not options. We have decided $100 or less as the budget is already tight enough. He likes to golf, but new clubs are not an option. He got golf balls and tees for christmas. I wanted to get him a membership to a gold course but those are very expensive and not affordable. I am stuck! 🙁 I have absolutely no idea what to get him.

Why aren’t those things an option?
if he likes golf you could get him personalized golf ball cuff links…
And a watch inscribed with your wedding day or love note is super sentimental and not sappy at all…
Golf attire and sentimental should never be in the same sentence

If i got those things for my fiance they would go untouched and never be used. Cuff links, watches, and jewelry would just be a waste of money. He has already said so himself. ..

A really nice golf bag? Does he like to cook? Maybe a new grill or grilling set.
My fi loves to grill, and I’m seriously thinking of getting him this grill that he can hook his ipod into.

@xoxo_712: I am not sure if there is such a thing, but if he likes golf, is there something like a personal trainer available that you could get him for 1 – 3 hours?
other than that: does he have a favorite author and you could hunt down a signed book by him / her?
or in case he likes beer maybe a micro-brew set?
or in case he likes bbq, some real nice high-quality gadget for bbq?
(or in case he collects something, something nice for his collection?)

@xoxo_712: I got my guy a handmade monogrammed leather wallet. He doesn’t really like “stuff” but this is one thing I knew he’d use. It was $65 or so. I can dig up the store name if you want.
How about a monogrammed golf club bag?

I am def going to have to use my brain for this gift. He is so hard to shop for for holidays/birthdays. I just bought him a wallet for christmas and he just bought his owngolf bag. I do like the golfers bbq set, but we live in an apartment and dont have a grill 🙁

@xoxo_712: If you’re having such a hard time finding a gift, how about suggesting to him that the love and the lifelong commitment you’re giving each other is enough for the wedding day?
…or in case he likes whiskey / wine / rum… maybe a bottle of an expensive drink?
have you had a look at this thread? maybe there is some helpful inspiration in there as well:

I like to do experience gifts and recently did one for my SO. While doing that I noticed that you can buy golf lessons with a PGA professional.

@xoxo_712: What about a nice pair of golf gloves? You could probably even get them personalized with a monogram or something else. Even top of the line gloves would still be in budget. If you felt like the gloves were too cheap, you could look at adding something to it, like a shirt or jacket, or, or some type of experience, or something non-golf related all together, like the alcohol suggestion.

If he likes golf, why not get him a lesson with a pro? I got that for my FIL and he loved it! It should cost between $60-100 for an 1-1.5 hour lesson.
I got my husband a fridge for his present and gave him my small fridge as a beer fridge for his home office. He likes the small beer fridge alot, as he can keep cheese, snacks and of course beer in there, and he doesn’t have to go downstairs everytime he is hungry or thirsty.

You ladies have my mind going now!! I like the idea of gloves or a lesson. I will have to look into those. FI is also a fan of whiskey so that may be an option too!!
