What if you make him a scrapbook page with blank spaces for a wedding pic and honeymoon pic and then also have one picture of you two dating?  Sort of like a before and after thing? 

You can get these items pretty cheap from a Michaels or other craft store and then put it together 🙂 And then when you are married you can start the book together as something to do!

Paper- 50cents

Stickers (coffee, hunting, letters, sports, etc)- around $2 (I think you will pay more for the entire sticker package, but you can itemize the cost to make it under 5.  Like if a page costs $1 and has 10 stickers and you use 2, it cost 20 cents)

Plastic cover- $1

Including ticket stubs and photos- free!

Then you just need a glue stick!

why don’t you just write him a heart felt letter? $5 is not much to work with.

Picture frame paper mached with your ticket stubs?

Can you tell us more about you guys and about your wedding?

Try something like a polymer clay charm.  It is cheap, cute and can go in his keychain.  I saw this coffee one on etsy.  I know that it has to come in qick so maybe you don’t have time to buy and have it shipped but what if you MAKE it.  It does not have to be a coffee, you can do anything if you have the sculpting skills.  Just google polymer clay and buy it at the craft store.

@anna4041:  If you had more time, I’d say to get a coffee mug made with photos of the two of you or the ticket stubs – I like the ones from Snapfish. However, I don’t know if you have enough time for that…

Instead, what about getting one of those travel coffee mugs that has a slot where you can insert a photo? I’ve seen them at the Dollar Tree, but you could probably get a better quality one elsewhere. Instead of adding a photo, maybe you could make a collage with the ticket stubs and then make a color photocopy to insert into the mug? (I’d save the real ticket stubs in case the mug leaks or something). Then you could put a cute note in the mug about your first date and all the fun you’ve had since?

Good luck!

Why not a scrap book of all your ticket stubs?  Do you have pictures from any of the events?  My SO and I are always saying we’re going to put a scrapbook together of all the college football games we’ve been to in the last 4 seasons, but we’ve never gotten around to it.

@anna4041:  Well, you could put a pictures of a pheasant in one of those design-your-own mugs. If you get the Dollar Tree ones, you could give him a few, lol. One with the ticket stubs, one with photos of the two of you, and one with a pheasant… and it would still be less than $5 🙂

ETA: This one on ebay is cool, but over your budget: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Pheasant-Clear-Big-Large-Heavy-Glass-Mug-Cup-Beer-Stein-Silver-Game-Bird-Hunting-/251153326205?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a79e7a07d

This one is also over budget, but you could make something like it: http://www.discoveroutdoors.us/pheasant-16-oz-steel-travel-mug
