My Fiance has been pestering me to find out what I want… and I keep trying to tell him that the thought is what counts and I just want something from the heart/meaningful/that will list or is symbolic.
I did a boudoir shoot, and I had a book made of pictures from it and from our engagement shoot and some other favorites of his, and I wrote him a poem and had it printed on the back of the book 🙂 along with special quotes throughout.
I am also surprising him by taking him to see his favorite soccer team play on our honeymoon..
What did you get your husband/what did he get you? if anything.

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
My hand in marriage. After paying for the wedding and honeymoon there really isn’t anything left over for extra gifts. I would happy with a personal note for me to read before the ceremony. I always joke with him that I want him to write me a dirty limerick for a gift.

I got Darling Husband a boudoir little black book and he got me a RHR that was the ering we originally wanted to get before finding my current, more traditional one. He outdid himself but he joked that it was a lot of future bday/anniversary/vday gifts and push gifts combined. LOL He loves gifting jewelry because he thinks it has lasting value and we can pass it onto our children.

@mayflowerbride13: not sure what Fiance is planning, but I know it’s something good! I am also doing a boudoir shoot for him in June and will be putting an album together to give to him the night before the wedding. Here’s to hoping my Jillian Michaels’ routine pays off!

I also gave him the book of boudoir photos. He gave me a Tiffany starfish necklace (we had a Destination Wedding and starfishes were part of our theme)

I got my Fiance a keychain with the coordinates of our wedding ceremony (got myself one, too), a stamped metal note to keep in his wallet, and I designed us a logo, printed it on cardstock, and framed it for us to hang up.
No idea what he’s getting me, haha. I showed him several things around the same price I paid for his stuff.

@AdriannaJean: holy crap! A piano! WOW! That’s quite the gift, lucky guy!

I never heard of wedding gifts (or push presents) before weddingbee, and I’m pretty sure my fiance doesn’t know about them either. I was pretty clueless about wedding traditions before finding this site.
But I saw a keychain on pinterest that was neat. It has the day of your wedding on it, so he can never say he doesn’t remember your anniversary, lol.

We gave each other….. a wedding.

- Wedding: August 2013 - Rocky Mountains USA
We’re not paying for most of our (fairly modest) wedding, so I think we will do gifts for each other. He’s not really into “stuff” of any sort, so a fancy set of cufflinks (or really anything besides something super useful and utiliitarian, like a pair of jeans) would be a waste. So I think I’m going to get us a sky-diving trip!
We want to get some pets after this summer, so I’ve been dropping endless hints about some kittens (shelter of course) as my wedding gift. Pretty sure it’s starting to percolate… 🙂
@AdriannaJean: That is awesome!! I wish I had the money and space for a piano for my guy – he would go apeshit. Someday!

@lolot: a kitten! that would be the greatest gift… and skydiving will be a blast!! Fiance wants to go with me some day (I’ve been once before) I would love to get certified!

I have no idea what Fiance is getting me, but I’m definitely not expecting a gift since he paid for the wedding. Since we met online playing WoW, I decided to do a little themed gift for him. I made him cufflinks, a tie tack, boudoir scrapbook, emergency kit, and a boutonniere alternative. I also purchased socks and a flask and made custom labels and packaging for everything.

Fiance got me a necklace with my future initials on them, like this…
It was around $100 so now I’m trying to think of what to get him. He’s so hard to shop for!!
