Electronics are pricey in nature. Does he like anything else? Maybe branch out of that realm? 

There are lots of electronics that can be in that price range, but I have found that electronics don’t have enough sentimental value to me. But that could just be me 🙂

I just bought a rather nice bottle of whisky, bottled in 2018. I intend to give it to him when we get home after the reception, so we can toast our new life together

It depends on what else he likes!! My fiance loves writing and reading. I plan to buy him a giant collection of books that he has always wanted to own (Game of Thrones, several Stephen King books, et cetera), a journal, and a nice quality bookshelf for our future home! 

Does your fiance like hiking? My cousin got her hiking-crazy husband tickets to the Andes to go hiking there together post-honeymoon. 

Does your fiance like cooking? My aunt got her chef husband a collection of high-quality knives, and he still enthuses about them and brings them to every major family event! 

Just depends on what your man likes 🙂

I got my husband a custom bobblehead of us. It’s super cute and looks just like us. He keeps it on his desk at work. I think it was around  $150 on Etsy but I don’t remember for sure. And then I also got him a keychain that has the coordinates of where we met and where we married.

akshali2000 :  You don’t have to go to the ANDES, hehe. But yeah, see what you can do with the hiking thing! 

I think that any gift would be okay as long as you can somehow personalize it. From what I understand, that’s the biggest thing with wedding gifts to each other, but then again, I’m sure lots of people break this rule! Heck, my friend got her husband a Keurig haha! 

Good luck though! I’m sure he will love whatever you get him 🙂 Men are so good like that.

I got my husband a book from Love Book Online which he really liked, and a gimmicky T-shirt with a GoT reference which says ‘I went to a wedding and all I got was this bloody t-shirt’ which he thought was brill. Didn’t spend a load because we both turned 30 within 3 months of the wedding too!

One thing with electronics is that they’re inevitably replacable. I think that’s why watches and cufflinks are common – they last for ages or even a lifetime. But that’s definitely not necessary, especially if that’s not really his thing. I think that’s just the thinking behind it.

Does he have any other hobbies? Books and records can be good. My husband got me art cases/supplies…

What about concert tickets? Idk if you guys are concertgoers but I love giving experience gifts like that, did it the last two Christmases. Then you’ve got something new to look forward to doing together!

akshali2000 :  I’m all for sentiments and so is hubby….and we did not want to spend a lot of money. 

When we started dating I had a really good feeling about him and started writing “journal entries” in my email that included some pretty big adventures and milestones in our relationship, how I felt about certain things, when we found our home and closed on it, got engaged, etc. and he had no clue. When we got engaged I took some of the engagement pics and made a journal on shutterfly and started writing the entries into the journal. We agreed to write each other a letter to read on the morning of our wedding, since we weren’t writing our own vows (I wouldn’t make it through without crying, I’m sure!)…..what he didn’t know is that the letter would be the last entry in the journal. 

We also love to joke around and giggle all the time. I got a block saying that says “A day without laughter is a day wasted.” 

He loves to fish and his rod broke last summer……so I bought him a new rod and a green reel (his favorite color) even though there was nothing wrong with his previous reel. I then attached a piece of paper with a ribbon that said “You’re my greatest catch” and our wedding date to the end of the pole.

He LOVED all of this and is excited to use his new fishing pole this summer. 

 

He made me a LoveBook of how we met (online) and included that on our first date neither of us ate the chips and salsa….I thought he knew something I didn’t (maybe they reused chips that weren’t eaten?) since he had worked at Acapulco Mexican Restaurant as a server about 10 years before we met, and he though I was weird and didn’t like chips and salsa……turns out, we both love chips and salsa, He also wrote me a letter and got me some “wifey” apparel. All very sweet, I of course cried.

As it is a wedding present I feel like it should be something timeless, I am getting my partner a newwatch as I know he would appreciate it and wear it often, however, a nice one is normally over the budget. Cufflinks are more realistic but wont be used regularly.

Can you get him something personalised? If you let us know his interests we might be able to help point you in the right direction xx

My Fiance loves the sappy thoughtful stuff; so I’m making him a scrapbook of our story with some blank pages to keep on filling
