What about giving him a dress up crown and when he’s like uh thanks honey? Just be like well I thought you would need it for this and give him the confirmation for the weekend experience. Sounds like its going to be a great weekend tho- very thoughtful!

Oh, I would just make up my own “certificate” myself and put it in a card.  Boring, I know.  But, the day of the wedding, do you really want to be fussing with props and such?

Also, are you going to give it to him in person?  In my experience, the day-of gifts are usually passed thru someone in the bridal party (or the DOC), so you guys don’t see each other before the ceremony (or first looks).

I was on the same mind track as sapphire – buy him a mini nascar toy and give it to him with a note explaining the package!

Super awesome gift by the way!

We exchanged our gifts the night of the wedding once we were alone in our hotel room. (Just a thought).

What if you bought a mini nascar toy. You know the kind little kids play with. Or you could get a fancy remote controlled one. Present that to him with a certificate saying he gets to go drive cars.

or second idea

This takes a little bit more work. But if you are having a picture montage at your rehearsal it will be easier.

Do a power point slide to be projected up on the wall.  It could start with a few words from you saying it’s his gift and how much you love him.  then a picture of him..followed by some pictures of nascars…followed by a pic of him next to a nascar and then last slide can say surprise you get to be a nascar driver for a day or something like that.

Good luck. Great gift by the way!

I think the remote control Nascar is a great idea. What boy doesn’t like his toys?

I would get him a little matchbox car and wrap it up nice with the confirmation under the car. He will see the car and wonder why, and then he will see the confirmation and be over the top.
