Are you getting your hubby a gift for your wedding day? If so, what is it? And when are you giving it to him? I have a long time yet until my wedding so I want to come up with something good and sentimental.
Also, did you just decide on your own to give him a gift or was it something you discussed? I’d feel bad if my hubby got me a gift and I didnt get him one but I don’t want to be like “so, baby, you should buy me a gift for our wedding day!”

I am really thinking of gettins the tasteful kind of boudoir photography done, and doing an opulent framed photo just for him. Something really beautiful and classy, but something that won’t make me feel strange or uncomfortable. Just really for him and him alone.

I would really like to get him a new boat engine. Seems not very intimate, but I know it would make him cry, we love the water.

We discussed gifts, and agreed to get them for each other. We are also geting some engraved gifts for his sons, since they arent getting rings or anything. Im probably getting the FI a nice watch (thank god for gilt.com and those websites, I can get him a really nice watch for a fraction of the cost!). Ideally, Id like to be able to engrave the back of the watch, but I dont know if I can.
Im also gonna get him some cufflinks… more just for fun though.

I have thought about it, & even have seen quite a few really neat ideas, but nothing that I would consider complete.
I thought boudoirs, cold feet socks, cufflinks are all awesome ideas that I may still look into, but like I said, it still feels like it would be missing something.. so I have been tossing the idea around of writng him something special, not just vows or a love letter. He is the one who has always encouraged me to follow my creativity, so it seems kind of fitting that I compile a complete work for him.
But dear lord is it a daunting task.
I have not said a word about getting gifts, I think that getting married is a pretty big “gift” to each other, in and of itself. Just because I want to do something special for him, doesn’t mean I expect him to reciprocate. He has already done so-So much for me/our family that I’d like to be able to say thank you/I love you/ You’re full of WIN! without being like “..now, you’ve gotta do it too!”
Not that I would be opposed to him getting me a gift, I just don’t expect it.

I told him under no circumstances should he get me one – he already bought the ring! I am however getting him a nice watch..will probably give it to him a few days before the wedding so he can wear it!
