That sounds very thoughtful & sweet, perhaps you can add some pictures of good memories or/also ones of you two during the months leading up to the wedding?

I’m not particularly very mushy & neither is my husband, but when he had to go Spain for a few weeks last year (he’s in the navy), our young son & I went shopping & I got him a few things I knew he would enjoy. I picked out a card, metal Star War models you put together, & a compass pocket watch engraved with his name, the navy seal, & a quote that said “I’ll Follow You Anywhere”. He loved it & I told him our soon-to-be 1 year old son said he wanted his daddy to have it 🙂

My friends got married 5 years ago and their maid of honor ended up sending around a notebook to all of the people closest to the couple to write well-wishes.  It ended up having about 50 people writing in it.  Maybe you could take that kind of approach?  Ask all his family to write something for him, all his friends, and then you can use the last pages to write your letter to him

Love this idea! I did this for my husband for his graduation and also had others mail in well wishes to put in it. So yes…he would love a gift from your heart!

I thought I included this above. I gave him a boudoir album and he gave me a wedding dress sketch of my dress as well as his suit sketched. We loved both gifts.

I think it’s great idea! I did a Smash Book (look them up – they’re like a glorified scrap book) for my gift to my SO on our one year anniversary of dating. We were semi-long distance (could only see each other at the weekends) so we had lots of weekends away that I saved mementos from (train tickets, accommodation flyers, things from events, postcards etc). It took me ages to make the book but I did say, one or two pages per significant thing I wanted to remember, and some random fun pages too. I also wrote letters to him such as my feelings from our first date, thoughts for the future, and I tucked them into envelope pockets (which you can buy as part of the range) and stuck them in. He loved it – we are now coming up to two years and we are making our year two journal together. 🙂 

Btw I’m in the UK so if you want links for suppliers feel free to contact me.

These are beautiful and many are very affordable. You can also have the cover embossed with whatever you want (your names, wedding date, special message, etc.). I particularly love the ones with assorted papers. It would also be cool to paste in some photos.
