    I got him a necklace with a small key charm on it. He once told me he’d love a necklace like that, but we haven’t spoken of it since…but the key has a heart in part where the chain hangs, so it’s the “key to my heart” idea…I have no idea if/what he will get me…but I don’t really mind either way! I’m marrying my best friend!

    i was planning to get him something without telling him, but am considering just telling him so i can get a gift too! lol. it was actually more going to be a gag gift. he has a bunch of flasks already, but i wanted to get him a personalized one with his initials with a bottle of whiskey to be sent to him prior to the ceremony with a note with something to the effect of “to help loosen you up” haha 😀

    We’ve already talked about it because I didn’t want the poor guy to not realize he was “supposed” to get me something. 🙂 We didn’t tell each other what, though.

    We won’t be exchanging gifts (as far as I know) and never heard of doing so until I came on WB. At best, I may decide to get him a card.

    We talked about it and since Fiance and I are paying for the wedding and honeymoon ourselves we decided that was our gift to each other, LOL. Plus we are getting married only a month and half before the holidays there really isn’t a budget to do otherwise.

    But we will still do cards for each other. Fiance and I are sucker for cards. He even “hand makes” me them from time to time 😉

    We considered our gift to each other to be “half a wedding!” We paid for the wedding/honeymoon ourselves and did not see a need to get each other gifts. I also didn’t realize that people even did that until I read about it on the internet.

    We are exchanging gifts and notes to each other. Fiance actually already gave me my gift because he said it was a mix between a VDay, engagement anniversary and wedding gift. He got me a coach watch! I plan on getting him an intense swiss army knife, cufflinks and a tie clip and a bottle of expensive scotch.

    We didn’t. Like your fi, I was worried about money because we were already spending so much. I also didn’t feel like we needed gifts to remember the day, since we have photos for that. I was his gift, and he was mine.
