Ladies, are you exchanging gifts with your husband on your wedding day? My FI has mentioned that he got me something, so now I have to make sure to get him something nice! So, what did you buy your man, bees?

We are exchanging gifts. I was given mine before my wedding day since I had wanted a camera and it was something I will need before our honeymoon to Belize. He thought if I got it before then I would have time to learn how to use it. He’s hard to shop for so I ended up getting him his gift early too. Our wedding is not until Dec ’12. The other day he mentioned an acoustic bass on eBay that he thought was a great deal but he felt if he bought it that he would be splurging on himself. I thought “ah, hah!” this is exactly the kind of thing that would be perfect! So I got it. He knows I got it though, since shortly after he mentioned it he noticed it was gone. Ha! But he’s a happy camper.
I hope this helps.

We decided to exchange small gifts the day of (under $50). I just order his gift this past week. He is a huge history nerd and loves all things civil war (to the point I find him to be a better tour guide than the actual guides at most places). I ordered him cufflinks made from replica civil war tokens. It is something he can wear on our wedding day and enjoy for years to come and always think of our wedding day.

I don’t think we’re exchanging gifts, but I am planning a surprise for him: A groom’s cake decorated in a Mario Kart theme!
He’s HUGE into video games and I’m HUGE into cakes lol. This way, something will majorly represent HIM at the wedding…plus it’s something I’m tickled pink to have made!! I can’t wait! 😀

I’m not sure FI even realizes you can/should exchange gifts prior to the wedding… I’d better bring it up soon LoL. I got him something very small but very cute — a painted eggshell with a little note inside (he’ll have to break the eggshell to get it). Might get him something additional to that!

@roweboat: We are exchanging gifts, but the morning after. I am getting him a watch as he loves watches and he uses them alot. I love the thought of getting him something I can see him use, and appreciate.

My FI loves photography so he goes on nature walks and just takes pics for hours. There is one pic that he took that he really loves of a tree that actually looks like there is a face in the branch. My hobby is art with charcoal so I took that pic, drew it with charcoal but I “carved” our initials into the tree itself. I’m having it framed with the actualy photo he took…

I don’t think we plan to exchange gifts, but I plan to surprise him with handmade cufflinks for his tux/suit. I am going to be wearing Calvin & Hobbes shoes which is almost a security blanket for me. We’re SO not the elegant people we’re pretending to be on our wedding. So for him, fighting game or beer cufflinks will do the same for him. 🙂
