Sorry if this isn’t much help (i know you said you have $200) but you don’t really have to get him anything at all. If anything, I would just write him a love letter to be delivered by your Maid/Matron of Honor the morning of your wedding, before he sees you. Tie it up in a ribbon, and there it is, the perfect gift. He doesn’t need anything except for you to be there at the alter… especially considering the financial straits you’re in.

We’re not getting each other anything because we’re dirt poor. We’re giving ourselves to each other, and enjoying our honeymoon together, and that’s enough for us 🙂

What about a date night jar?  They’re affordable, plus not all up front costs.

Here’s one I liked, where they colour coded the popsicle sticks, so they knew how much it would cost.


You could also do the same with a “year of dates”  – just google it.  There’s usually one for each month, in an envelope.  One way you can get a bunch is by buying a bunch of groupons (make sure to read the fine print!).  Then, you’ll have heaps of memories together.  


The easiest thing is to just not do day-of gifts.  I didn’t, and didn’t miss it at all 🙂

@AllShookUp: Totally agree!


I ended up getting my husband a hoodie. Such a simple gift, but I’ve been known to steal *ahem* all of his hoodies, so when he saw that I bought him is own he was pumped! I was going to have our wedding date embroided somewhere on the edge of the hood, but thought against it.

He wrote me an amazing love letter and that is better than any huge gift.

I love the groupon dates idea. Does he have any hobies? I had a custom blacksmithing apron made for him (also ran out of money since I planned on buying him a bike).
