Usually I have seen it where the MOH/Best Man deliver the gifts and people open them while they are getting ready. Makes some great photos. But if you’d prefer to be together to open them, I think after the rehearsal dinner is perfect.

I would try to get him something that would last. Here are some ideas off the top of my head, some of them even I think are lame, but I’ll just throw them out there!

– A really nice golf bag with his monogram or family crest and/or clubs

– His own bowling ball (if he bowls a lot, can’t tell from your post)

– Boudoir photos

– A really nice personalized set of beer steins

– Fancy shaving kit with a leather bag

– This would be hard to give the day of, but a leather recliner. I think they are out of business, but something similar to a Barcalounger runs in that price range and really is a piece he could have for 20+ years. They hold up so well.

I got Darling Husband a nice Nikon D-SLR (refurbished, because I can’t afford that!) along with this syrupy, somewhat cheesy letter. It said something like: “though we already have so many memories together, I can’t wait to make more with you for the rest of our lives. I would love to see those memories the way you remember them through your own eyes.” And that’s what the camera was for.

He freaking loved it.

My Darling Husband likes cigars so I got him a zippo and included our wedding date in the engraving.  I wanted something to mark the moment.  He really likes it and carries it all the time.  🙂

My man is the kind who sort of has everything he needs, and purchases what he wants himself. I’m making him a little book or boudoir photos! And I plan on giving it to him the night before.

It doesn’t have to be expensive you can do something thoughtful and cute. I am making him a survival kit that includes:

  • socks to keep cold feet away
  • a bottle of nice vodka engraved to ease your nerves (remember one does the trick)
  • snickers bar to keep you happy and full
  • mints to ensure a fresh first kiss
  • a keepsake charm to carry with today and always (wooden heart with our date to go with the rustic theme)

I also might do Something old, Something new, Something borrowed, and Something brewed. He seemed kind of jealous I got to wear all that so I want to make him feel special too.


I do like the golf idea if you wanted to do a big gift. Or boudoir is always a great gift.

I’m gifting my groom:

a pair of nice argyle socks (with a custom label I printed)

a set of cufflinks I made

a diorama boutonniere of where we first met

a boudoir album with a love letter written throughout the pages (designing and printing myself)

My budget was waaaaaay lower than $1k though.

I’m getting a boudoir shoot done and giving him a book of it. One of my friends said she thought it was kind of full of myself… but he’s marrying me, I think he’ll be into it, and it’ll be fun.  He won’t get it until the morning of though, I think it will also drive him a bit crazy having to wait for the wedding night after that 😉

I gave Mr. Bracelet…

  • a new pair of Oakleys (he lost his old pair/ Xmas gift 2010)

  • personal stationery (more because I LOVE it and it’s useful for a lifetime)

  • a little book filled with reasons why I love him (I’m not verbal at all, so I knew this would be a super suprise for him. I worked on it for about a year and will continue to add reasons in the future)

We exchanged the gifts on the morning of our wedding day. Mr. B chose not to see me before the ceremony, so we had our maid-of-honor / best man deliver the items to our respective rooms. We each had a photographer there to capture the moment.
