I was going to just get him something small like boxers or something for that night. But now I’m thinking of maybe an iPad! I KNOW……….huge jump. But I need a new laptop. He just got one but really wants the iPad. I’m thinking I’ll get him that and then take his laptop!?!? ๐Ÿ™‚ lol

@kate169: Oh yeah that would be nice!

I also thought about a watch and then having a grooms cake as a watch!

My Husband and I decided against gifting each other – we wanted to save our $$ but i am an overgifter as is so i couldnt leave him empty handed. i bought some really pretty paper and cut out little squares and wrote a reason why i loved him on each piece of paper – put them in a jar and he opens one every night when we get in bed. i dont know how many i wrote but we have bets on when it will run out.

I think I’m going to give my Fiance a new cross.  He has a favorite designer, so I picked one out.  I’ve been putting money aside every month (and just not getting my coffee in the AM and packing a lunch instead of buying) so that I can get it. It’s only $160 but thats not pocket change.  I think the hankerchief idea is great though!  That and a handwritten note would be very sentimental.  One of the other inexpensive gifts I’ve heard of- is doing your own sexy portrait and giving that in the card.  (Classy-not nude and you can either take it with a self timer or have your Maid/Matron of Honor take it).  Hope that helps!

I agree with totheislnds.  You are already spending a huge amount of money for the two of you so doing something from the heart is more appreciated than a lavish gift that has no thought behind it.  I’m cheesy and would love a poem of love note.

I’m using the engraving on his ring as a surprise (when it comes in, I’ll have him try it on, but won’t let him read it ๐Ÿ˜‰ )  and his cufflinks are a surprise as well.  Got them on Etsy and they’re representative of his favourite TV show.

I’m also an overgifter, so if I end up with some money a few weeks out I’ll get him a watch and there will definitely be a handwritten note/card if nothing else.

Lovely ideas, ladies!

I’m getting Star Trek cufflinks for Fiance from Etsy. They sell officially licensed ones different places on the web, but they’re $60 and the ones on Etsy are $30. I’m going to write him a letter, too, but I really want him to have the cufflinks.

We decided to go in together and get a gift that we both needed and could use.  We decided to get a nice digital camera so we could take nice pictures on our honeymoon & for all our other future events ๐Ÿ™‚

@jo.lee: I bet it’s the same place I found his Tardis ones from Dr. Who ๐Ÿ™‚  ($30 for cufflinks is so awesome, isn’t it?!)
