I think the journal is a great idea! What about a nice piece of luggage to supplement?
I’m going a somewhat more boring route and getting him a hockey jersey, album from my boudoir shoot, and a fun groom’s cake for the rehearsal dinner.
What about a compass that you could have engraved? Perfect for hiking, etc and a nice heirloom.
Oh! I love the journal and compass ideas! And with the compass you could put something in there about how when the weather of life gets bad, and he feels like he’s lost his way, you promise to always be there to help him find it agan. Something like that.
Have you thought about getting the journal as the meaningful part of the gift and then also getting him something fun that speaks to his engineer side?
I have way too many engineer friends (and FI), and they all love techie toys. http://www.thinkgeek.com is my go-to place for gifts for them.
I’m getting my FH a 67 Mustand Fastback crapped out car so he can fix it up as a hobby. (I know random gift, but I figure it will allow for easy out gifts in the future like a new engine for his 30th, new leather seats for christmas) Also we can fun it ::waggles eyebrows::
I love the ideas you are getting. The compass, the journal!, oh so perfect.
I got my husband a watercolor painting from an etsy seller. I took a photo of our wedding location and she did a painting of it. With the wedding date underneath it.
beesknees, thats a really cool idea! i might use it for a birthday or anniversary present… the site we are getting married at would make a great painting! i’m searching for a compass now…
the journal is an excellent idea for the journey – both literally and metaphorically!!
i’m getting fh a range rover – surprising him at the reception
My fiance is a pianist, so I got him a piano. But I gave it to him early..
He already has a few regular pianos, but I got him a digital, that he wanted. This baby is soo nice, he can record mp3s off of it, directly from the piano to the computer. So he’s been recording all the ceremony music, since he doesn’t trust anyone else to play it the way he wants it. haha
We’re going to have it at the venue, and it will be hooked up so that it sounds like the music is coming from it, during the ceremony. Also, if he wants to play anything during the reception, it’ll be there for that. It’s really easy to move too, compared to a regular piano that weighs a ton..
A compass is an awesome idea… Where do you buy a good compass that can be engraved? a jewellery store? a camping store?
Your ideas are very original and very creative. Your FI is bound to be touched at how much thought you put into your choice! Nice work:)
My FI and I saw "The Bucket List" over Vday and wrote and exchanged our own lists of things we hoped to accomplish in our lifetimes. One of his was to go heli-skiing. I plan to get him a gift certificate to do that; he’d never buy it on his own because it is a bit spendy.With it, I plan to enclose a note about how our marriage is an adventure and a change to support one another’s dreams.
I am also planning to tuck the gift certificate in a book of boudoir photos and to get him a groom’s cake/hint about the gift to come (the skiing part;) for our RD.
Red Sox tix. he loves love loves the red sox and has never been to fenway before.
We aren’t getting each other any gifts but a card. Our budget is blown between the wedding & our new house. We decided our gift to one anotehr is ourselves. 🙂
