How much are you looking to spend?

You could get him an engraved money clip, a nice silver flask, a scotch decanter (ok clearly I am a booze bag!), or maybe even a nice photo of you two for his office.

My Fiance would clearly like something that plugs in, so I don’t think a camera is a bad idea!

What about a nice watch? I got my Fiance a Guess watch for his b-day last year and he wears it to work every day now, but he definitely wouldn’t have bought it for himself.

Can you tell us more about your groom?  What is he into?  Is he anti jewelery or just anti watch?  What about some really cool cuff links to wear in the wedding or a funky belt buckle to personalize his tux?  Is he a macho man?  A tech nerd?  a wild boy?

Lol, whoops, just saw you said you didn’t want a watch. What about a new wallet with the digital picture thing inside, it could be pre-loaded with pics of you two? Just a thought.

I spent $8.00 on a gift for my groom. It’s a little pocketbook from 1913 called, Don’ts for Husbands I bought myself Don’ts for Wives and then we had a little wedding day photo shoot. 🙂

If you do the digital camera you should make sure that there is a photo of you on it.  A little sneak peek for the wedding day/night. 😉

Are wedding isnt until 2010 but Im going to go with something personal. Does he like any sports or sport teams. Maybe he always wanted to do something like take guitar lessons or go sky diving or swim with the dolphins? Or maybe he is just a simple guy and would like a really nice expensive wallet.

I love the "guitar lessons" idea that D.Marie had!  You could also do cooking class, photography class,or a drawing class.  Great idea!!

Some girls boudoir photos for thier guys too.

Get him something he’ll actually use.. and enjoy.  If he’s not that into watches don’t waste your money!  If he needs/wants a camera then get him that!  You can always add a personal touch with something else that is inexpensive.

I’m doing an array of gifts for my Fiance on our wedding day. I’m having them delivered to his room throughout the day (we have an evening wedding).

1- Because we’re starting so late and he’s a movie buff, a gift card to the movies for him and his groomsmen. The theater is across the street from the hotel. It will be in a basket of movie snacks. If he doesn’t use it that day, he can save it for later.

2- A Tallis (prayer shawl)- The traditional jewish wedding gift from a bride to her groom.

3- Cufflinks and a hankerchief that have special meaning to us.

4- "Love is walking hand in hand" & "Happiness is a warm puppy" by Charles Shultz because he is a peanuts fan

5- 12 Ways to Say I Love You Journal from Uncommon Goods

6- A comissioned piece of art depicting our first date.

Gifts don’t have to be expensive, just find things that have meaning for you!

Don’t worry about spending a lot of money on a gift for your groom.  A gift that has a lot of meaning behind it is better than a couple hundred dollar something or another.  For anniversaries I usually make something crafty, and he absolutely loves it.  He knows I spent a lot of time into making it extra special for him, and it’s better than any store bought gift.

@Lani: That is a really cute gift.  I might just steal that idea from you.  Thanks!
