    Wow, I’m shocked that gifts are that common. Aren’t the wedding bands gifts to each other? So… follow-up question. *Why* are you getting gifts for each other? I feel like I’m missing something.

    We are getting each other something to wear on the day and we will exchange gifts the evening before – I’m getting him a vintage watch with our wedding date engraved in the back, and he is getting me a vintage sapphire necklace to wear on the day – this is the plan anyway. A lot can happen between now and then! (I’ll most likely find a necklace I want to wear, but we wil see…)

    Nah.  We don’t really have any money left (we’re not even having a honeymoon right now) and I’m not a creative type, so we’re not doing gifts.  He may totally surprise me with something, but right now with everything that’s going on, we’re both doing well just to keep our heads on straight.

    He’s been wanting these headphones for his Xbox. I think that will go perfectly with his Xbox grooms cake which is a surprise! Plus grey converse sneakers to go with his tux and purple Oxford socks.

    @lolot:  Skydiving trip sounds AMAZING!!

     

    I too have the problem that FI’s birthday is the week before our wedding…(like his birthday is this Wednesday and our wedding is the 17th) side stepping the closeness panic bc we are paying for everything ourselves once we get back from our honeymoon i plan on doing something special for him and he plans to do the same for me so day of we aren’t getting each other anything.

    Anyone doing a groom’s cake?  That’s part of my gift to him, it’s a surprise and will be an old car that he likes.   I also am making an album with my bridal boudoir photos I did a couple months back.  Both should be surprises, hopefully he doesn’t know!

    When I was planning to get married, I was going to give him an umbrella, with a nice silver handle with his name and date engraved. With a note ‘just in case’. Looking back, I should have brought some socks for his cold feet!
