I want to do my own boudoir photos, and then have the album made using an online website. I was also thinking of getting him a nice bottle of whiskey:-) I am also on a tight budget, this is why I’m doing my own photos instead of paying a lot here for a photographer to take them.

Not sure what your price range is, but I would highly recommend boudoir photos. I just had mine taken on Sunday and saw a few on the photographers camera, they looked great, and I can’t wait to get them. I know he’ll love it. It also depends on the guy though, and if you think he’d like something like that.

I’m also doing boudoir.  I’m using the same photographer that we are using for our wedding, and she’s giving me a great price since she’s doing engagement, boudoir, and wedding.  They are so classy yet sexy, and I know that he will love them.

Does he have any hobbies or sports that he likes to do? For instance, if he plays tennis, would he like a new racket? I”m going the traditional route and getting him a watch–darn your Fiance for beating you to it, lol.

@rachelm1083: What photographer did you use, if you don’t mind me asking?

I am thinking of doing boudoir photos.  I know I’m going to get him cuff links that are also lockets in which I’ll put a picture of his mom who passed away.

I gave my husband a bicycle. He had been wanting a new one, since his old one was his high school ten speed.

I am debating between watch, electric acoustic guitar, or something like an IPad (he is a Mac fanatic).

@marlew: I know some teams where we live offer a partial season or maybe like five select games or maybe you could do concert tickets.

Does he smoke? A nice box of Cuban cigars might not go amiss.

I agree with the other gal who asked you what he’s in to. What are his hobbies? Does he like movies? Video games? Sports? What about:

 his favorite band or kind of music, you could get him concert tickets to the next show that’s coming to your area, Even if nothing is close you can make a little weekend trip out of it.

Does he like or need any tools?

Cuff links?

A flask that you have engraved with something special

How about reservations at a bed and breakfast thats a few hours away and a whole romantic weekend package. You could put a picnic basket together with wine and bubble bath, plus some other romantic “stuff” and get an invitation that you hand write in to say “You’re cordially invited to a weekend getaway to ______ with your beautiful wife on the weekend of ______.”

Not sure what you’re budget is, but check out the website VRBO (vacation rentals by owner). You can find some amazing vaca spots and stay in a beautiful place that is way cheaper then a hotel. You can make your own meals with local ingredients and save money, you can even find places with hot tubs. THere’s locations listed on there for all over the world. i found something super affordable to take my SO on a little romantic getaway for 4 days when he came home on leave from Iraq.

I have been collecting things since we started dating – movie and other ticket stubs of stuff we have done together, packets of matches from the odd restaurant we have gone to, facebook message convos from our first few months of dating, etc.  I was hoping to use these items and a bunch of pictures of us and make a scrapbook starting at the beginning of “us”!

I am also considering a boudoir book as well, though at this point, I am not sure if I would DIY or get a professional to take them.  I will have to see what happens!

For me…it is going to come down to how much time I have between now and then to get this done.  I should really start now and just try to get through a little bit at a time.
