@Nic01:  They are going to have a lot of wedding and honeymoon pictures. What about getting them a photobook? (Or rather, I will create you a photobook or a giftcertificate for the company) for their honeymoon(s?) and wedding images. If they would rather hang the pictures maybe some really nice frame sets. Also he doesn’t wear watches in everyday life but a really nice waterproof/indestrutable watch is great to have in a place like hawaii where the day can be split between a hike on a volcano and the beach. You could also do a cordless charger if he is really in to his smartphone or something they could use on the plane ride like two (because one for his wife would be nice if you can) sets of nice headphones

@Nic01:  A pair of Ray Bans or Aviators he can take on his honeymoon?

@Nic01:  Have you asked his FI if she has any ideas? I know you said a gift, not an experience, but you could arrange a dinner for them in Hawaii, an upgrade for them on the plane, a limo to and from the airport in Hawaii?

Cuff links- either customized or his fave sports team? They are more of a luxury/ special gift item that he will have for years.

Personalized flask?

@Nic01:  1 piece of carry on would be a perfect gift. It doesn’t necessarily even have to match his other luggage. If he has started a luggage set, you could get him the carry on to match.

Does he need a new Dopp kit? One with a hook is great because he can hang it up.

Tumi makes this one for just a little over $100

@Nic01:  Does he have any hobbies that you are aware of? If he enjoys cooking, you can always get him something useful but cool, like a set of good quality chopping knives (gave a set of 3 Japanese cooking knives to my fiance for his birthday and he loves them – says he feels like a ninja every time he uses them)!

I don’t think you can go wrong with a gift voucher as well – as long as it’s a thoughtful one from a shop you know he would want to get himself something from, not just some ‘all-rounder’ voucher to the entire mall.

Is he a camper? Does he play a sport/have a favourite team? I’m sure you’ll think of something…

You could buy him a share or shares of stock in something that he is interested in or cares about.

If he is a golfer? You can get  him a share in Callaway.

Does he ride a bike? Harley

Does he have a favorite candy? Tootsie Roll

etc

I gave my brother a stainless steel swiss army knife with his initials engraved on it.  He loved it.  I think it was around $70 or so.  I ordered from Oregon Knife Shop after googling different options.  Good luck!

i think pps came up with some nice ideas already… 

here are some more…

Some technical gadget? like boxes for the ipod/iphone, a cover or a keyboard for an ipad, good quality headphones, something for a camera (tripod, case…), kindle etc.

does he have a favorite author? maybe some signed book… 

does he like music? maybe some vinyl…
