Hi Bees 🙂 Just curious as to what you are getting your husbands to be, or what you have bought your husbands as a wedding day gift! I am getting my FH two things, the first is a watch he really wants to buy (for the wedding specifically, and I keep having to say it’s not in the budget, lol.. I hope he doesn’t put two and two together and figure out I am the one who will be buying it). He absolutely loves it so I think it will be a total shock. Here it is:
And the second is something super creative I saw on pinterest. It is a keychain with some (lucky) pennies, 1 of the year I was born, he was born, year we got together and year we will be married (since I live in Canada and our penny stopped being pressed in 2013 I have to find a US one!). I will give it to him on the night of our wedding and tell him that these are the 4 most important dates that lead us to where we are. I also love the idea of adding other pennies for when we decide to have kids!
So what are you bees planning to buy your husbands, if anything at all, or what have you bought! I gots ta know!

@krrmee5: very sweet! how will you get a hole through the penny’s?
I’ve also bought Fiance a watch & I’m VERY excited giving it to him. When will you be giving it to him? I want to give it on the day, but i won’t be seeing him & i kind of wanted to see his reaction…but I guess that’s what we have the videogrpaher for

@Nic01: Thank you 🙂 I can use a drill or hammer/nail! What watch did/will you be buying him? I’m going to have his best man give it to him and make sure, like you said, that the videographer catches his reaction! I’m so excited!

My guy doesn’t really like stuff, so I think I am getting us a skydiving trip! I’m hoping he’ll get us a couple kittens (shelter or otherwise in need of a home , of course). I’ve been dropping hints like crazy 😉

@imabridesmaid: I contemplated not getting anything based on the cost of the wedding, but for christmas, birthday and anniversary gifts we decided to not get eachother anything. I figured for the wedding we could splurge a bit and get eachother something memorable that we could remember (and in his case, wear) forever, not including our wedding bands! I actually haven’t told him I wanted anything, but just that it was a tradition that I would love to do – and he agreed 🙂
