I’ve never really heard of it as a tradition (maybe that’s a regional/cultural thing?) but I gave Darling Husband one. It was a playstation and computer monitor. I probably would have preferred to give him something more classic and timeless, but it was what he wanted! I thought it was only fair he got something to mark the occasion 🙂

Hmm…I’ve never heard of that either, but I did pay for both our wedding bands; didn’t seem fair that he had to buy two rings that were seven times what his one ring cost.

I have heard it’s traditional to buy a man a watch.  I tried to buy mine a watch, but he didn’t like it (and he never wears a watch, anyway), so I ended up returning it.  I’m going to get him a good quality frying pan (he’s a chef, so I know he’ll use it), but he has to pick it out because I don’t know what kind of pan he wants.

I’ve never heard of the tradition but I did buy my Fiance a gift because I don’t think it is fair the guy is supposed to buy the e-ring. 

I let him choose between three video game systems – XBox, Wii and PS3. He chose a PS3, which I was happy about because it has a blu-ray player.
