I am having problems thinking of a gift to give my FH. He has been working and getting paid well for about 3.5 years so if he wants/needs anything he just goes and buys it. He is not a guy that is into being "fancy" or standing out. He is rather shy, and i am not doing the whole picture thing (he would think it is a waste of money). Are there any ideas out there for the guy who has everythign?

Surprise him with a massage, or set up candle light dinner on the beach at sunset during your honeymoon. Sounds like he’d appreciate something like that!

I would love the beach thing, however we are in central wisconsin, and the only beaches are on rivers polluted by paper mills. But the massage sounds amazing!

I’m trying to find something that will be important to my fiance for our entire lives, not just a cool gadget. Maybe something like a first edition of his favorite book, or a future family heirloom (I’m considering getting him a prayer shawl). What does your guy do for fun? What’s important to his family? Are you close enough to a sibling or parent to ask for help?

His parents are divorsed and he is not real close to them. For fun he builds computers then sells them, reads, or runs/bikes/rollerblades that type of thing.

I know exactly how you feel. My Fiance is the same way, not close with family/siblings, buys all of the gadgets that he would like, enjoys reading and working out/playing sports. So, I bought him a pair of Red Sox cufflinks, though he will probably never wear them again, he mentioned that he wanted a pair. The other thing I did is make a book (in iPhoto) or photos of us throughout the years we’ve dated and been engaged. I didn’t have many photos from the beginning so I wrote an intro that explained how I met and how I was feeling. Hopefull he’ll like it. It took some time but I think it was worth it. Do you think he would like something sentimental like that?

Is there anything that would represent how you met or where/how you got engaged? For example… my fiance and I got engaged on Christmas eve on the square downtown in our hometown. There is a local photographer that took a picture of the square at Christmas with all the lights on at night. I am going to get that and have it framed to put in our new house. It’s something I know will remind us both of that night everytime we look at it.

Does he have a favorite sports team? A lot of stadiums sell bricks that you could buy with your wedding date and married names. I did this for my fiance and it will be something that we can always see when we go to games.

As a wedding planner I have seen some nice things over the years and have found that a bride can never go wrong with giving her future hubby a personalized gift. Did you keep any cards that he had given you? Make a scrapbook and include them along with photos of the two of you. Title it something special that you and your fiance you would understand (maybe an inside joke, or your nicknames for one another) Has he ever written you a love letter? Get it nicely framed, or put it in a shadow box with other little items or trinkets he has given you. This could be a nice surprise for him especially if he doesn’t know that you have kept the items.
