    I’m not married yet, but we do plan to get each other gifts. I’m going to do a boudoir (sp?) photo shoot for him as his gift.

    We didn’t get each other gifts. We figured we’re spending enough on the wedding already, and his gift was getting to marry me!

    We weren’t supposed to get each other gifts, but I bought him a watch which winds when he moves. It’s see through and totally awesome. However, I really wanted to get him a really expensive watch from a jewelry store.

    our budget is pretty tapped out due to the wedding, so i think we’ll just exchange cards and something small. i’ll be giving him cufflinks.

    Yes and no. We said no gifts because I mean we ARE having a huge wedding! Hehe.

    But I could not resist booking him a round of golf in Ireland during our Honeymoon. So it was a pseudo wedding/birthday gift for him since his birthday was a week after we got back from Honeymoon.

    I haven’t bought it yet, but I found cufflinks on Etsy for $20 that I’m going to get him. We’re watching through a bunch of Star Trek episodes, so it’s perfect for our geeky selves :).

    Negative – we decided that our honeymoon was our gift to each other!

    We said over and over again that we weren’t getting each other gifts, but I really wanted to get him something that when he used it, he would think about our wedding day and how happy we were/are. I got him a Cartier money clip (he drools over their watches but I wasn’t about to drop $10,000!). He got me pearl earrings from Tiffany’s. We both “acted” mad that the other person got a gift even though we agreed not to, but we were secretly both super excited!!

    I bought him a new car!  It sounds super extravagant, and it is, but we had three cars and traded two of them in for a new one, so it’s not like I had to pay fully price for a new car.  I paid the difference and it’s his wedding present.

    I haven’t bought it yet, but I’m planning on getting him a nice watch to wear for when we go out.

    I was going to say that Darling Husband got spoiled but then I saw @Miss Olive and changed my mind 😉 LOL!

    Darling Husband got a big (vintage wooden) crate of goodies: A photo album of my boudoir shoot, cologne, new socks (with the “in case of cold feet” wrapper I made for them), a nice bottle of scotch and cigars for him and his Groomsmen to enjoy, a couple of fancy chips/pita and dips, some 70’s vintage collector Penthouse stirsticks that their clothes dissolve when they go in liquid (pretty funny!), a funny checklist of “Things you must do to make me happy”, and a note from me.

    My gift for Fiance is kind of weird. I’m planning on getting him a dirt bike. It’s something that he has wanted since he was a kid but was never able to have. Even at 25 he still drools over them. When we’re able to make large purchases, there are always better things that we could do with the money so I have a feeling the poor guy would probably never get his dirt bike if I didn’t get it for him. I’m hoping to find a nice used one (I’ll be enlisting FFILs help) for a few thousand.

    hubby hadn’t heard of the tradition of buying each other gifts, and when we talked about it he couldn’t understand spending anymore money than we already were, and i agreed. i was starting grad school 1 month after the wedding, so our household budget was already being tightened since my stipend is less than my prior salary was.
