We will be giving our ring bearer just a small gift, a children’s book about being a ringbearer.

Since it’s after the wedding, I’d embrace the fact that you forgot and go with something that you can do together.  You can even position it with the child (and/or his parents) and say “Hey, in all the wedding chaos, we didn’t get out to get X a gift but now that things are quieter, we’d love to take X to…..(insert ball game, day at the beach, children’s museum, etc.) as a thank you for doing such an awesome job on the wedding day”

You should still give the gift if you can, and make it the traditional kind just as if you would have given on the first day. The sooner is better, in terms of thoughtfulness. But don’t feel bad about it, you didn’t know!

I LOVE the idea of something engraved (like a bank or keepsake box). When he’s older, and understands more what weddings are about, he can look back at it fondly and maybe recall your wedding and stories. 

I have a locket that I was given from being a flower girl when I was 6, and when I come across it in my jewelery box it makes me smile and think of how nervous I was to walk down the aisle, and how proud I was afterwards.

Any other ideas besides an engraved bank? I like this, and am myself looking for more thoughtful keepsake items for a 6 year old boy. My flower girls are easy (jewelry), but I have no clue what are keepsakes for little boys….thanks

To the OP, I’m sure he’ll still appreciate the late gift. Any cool theme parks nearby?
