While I’m a girl who loves a present of any kind, I think a handwritten card would be the most meaningful. I want my FI to tell me how he’s feeling, why he’s excited, how much he loves me, and all that mushy stuff. It’s great to hear, but having a written note is just more – you can keep it and reread it 🙂

My fiance’ asked what I wanted and I told him a necklace with my new initials to wear to the reception. Something like this:

I am married.

I received nothing as an official “wedding day gift” from my then-FI on my wedding day, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way.  We gave each other ourselves, and our wedding rings stand as the momento of the day.  I just think that’s enough, and there are certainly enough boxed gifts being thrown at us that day as well…

But that’s what works for us.  Laughing

My husband gave me half of a wedding. Coincidentally, I gave him the same.

we just didn’t see the need for gifts on top of that!

I would love a gorgeous, timeless piece of jewellery. OR a love letter. I would die of happiness if he wrote me a love letter. I’ll probably not get a present though- other than him of course!

I suggested a new tattoo as something I’m after – obviously not on morning of the wedding, but you get the idea.  I might get a new graphics card, since good ink is so expensive (incidentally, that’s why I don’t have this one already) and my card is dying a slow, horrible death.

I was going to give a new PC…but I was beaten to it by several months.  I’m still trying to think of something to give.

Needless to say, we didn’t exchange “gifts,” per se.  We did, however, give each other the hard copies of our vows – handwritten, final draft.  I carry mine with me in my wallet.

@imabridesmaid:   I was leaning towards asking FI if he wanted to exchange gifts, but after reading your post, I am really content not doing gifts.  My wedding band will be my timeless keepsake piece of jewelry from the wedding day! I would like to exchange love letters however; I think that is a neat tradition.

Is there anything you can think of that your FI is really into – hobbies, special memories etc. Why not a present that references that. It doesn’t have to be expensive, I think it’d mean more if its personal and from the heart. The love letter idea is a great one!

I would LOVE to recieve a gorgeous plant or flowers [would prefer a flowering plant], and a hand written note.. perhaps something like “cant wait to marry you” or something really sweet.

I don’t want anything. <Not helpful though.

@Glasgowbound:  This! 
Love notes are the best <My fav gift I ever got from my FI was a story book/love letter he wrote. It was in childrens book format (big picture, 1 short sentence per page). It was absolutely amazing. 
You could do something like this. Us women love the sentimental stuff.
Or you could take a deck of cards, if she likes to play cards and write on each card one thing you love about her. You could do this on anything really. What does she like to do? play soccer? wrote it on a soccer ball 🙂 ect…
Reminiscing about all the wonderful things you did together that lead up to the wedding day is always sweet too. 
Homemade stuff that i sentimental is the best <3  

Good Luck!
