So i’ve been reading alot about the practice of getting a “groom gift” recently. It had never occured to me to give my Fiance a gift the day of the wedding, but I absolutely love the idea! Problem is, Fiance is impossible to shop for, he is the man who has everything (every birthday/anniversary/Christmas I get him NFL tickets or something intangible like that).
My question is, how many people got/are getting their groom a gift, and if so, what do you get?

We are getting each other gifts! I am getting boudoir pictures taken and am going to put them in a little book and then i’m also getting him an embroidered hanky!

I’m on the fence and I think i am actually going to just discuss this outright with FH because I don’t want to feel sad that he didn’t think to do anything for me, and i dont want him to be disappointed that he didn’t because he didn’t realize we were doing gifts etc…
If I do do it, the only thing I planned to do was write a nice letter, and get him some custom cuff links off etsy. They have some really sweet ones that say some great things etc… He NEVER wears cuff links but, kind of like any of my special wedding attire, they will be something special for him to have for that one day at least 🙂

Fiance and I discussed this and we both are on the same page about gifts for the day: nope! We both don’t see the point of it? Getting married and exchanging rings/vows are gifts enough for us.

I got him a dressy watch and he got me a beautiful necklace/earring set that I wore for the wedding. It was a very nice moment between us. (we did talk about it before hand so that we were on the same page!)

I’m doing a little box that I’m going to have my Man of Honor bring him as he is about to start getting ready. I’m going to put some fun dress socks so he ‘doesn’t get cold feet’, a watch so he ‘makes it on time’ a flask with a shot to ‘help calm his nerves’. I’m also putting some custom cufflinks and a list of reasons why I can’t wait to be his wife. 🙂

@ShutterbugCait: the socks are a cute touch!!
I’m getting some good ideas from you bees! Not sure I want to talk to him about it though… kinda want it to be a surprise! I don’t want anything from him though (I’m a better giver than receiver), just his love and devotion is enough!!
