So yesterday I bought FI’s wedding present, and I have to show it to somebody! I love it, and really think Fiance will love it too (he’d better like it, it cost a pretty penny lol (i.e. a lot!))! My Maid/Matron of Honor will deliver it to his hotel room on the morning of our wedding. Hopefully the videographer will catch his reaction on film 🙂
What are you all getting your FIs and when are you exchanging gifts?
For any married bees, what did your hubby get you?

Very nice! I wanted to get my DH a watch as well, but he said he wouldn’t wear it:/ Soo since he really doesn’t like things, I kept a journal from the day we got engaged until our wedding (19 months). I wrote love notes, stuff about wedding planning and house hunting, and just everything going on in our lives since we were long distance most of it. I hoped he liked it, and I’m pretty sure he did. I wasn’t going to see him open it but I saw him tear up from outside and had to go in!
he never cries so it was super sweet. He got me a glass jewelry box with birds (we had a bird theme) engaved with a sweet message, and a monogram locket with my new initals, and my favorite chocolate. I loved it!

I have always wrote music but never had a tune with it or preformed it to people. So for my fiance I am writing a song a out how we fell inlove. I will sing it to him in front of everyone. I sang a song feom talor swift as we were driving one night since we had no music. He cried because he said my voice was so good. Im just nervous to sing in front of people!!!!! I love the idea of a journal!!!

That is so sweet!! I would never have thought of that, although I think I’ve only ever written one journal entry when I was about 10 lol. It’s so sweet seeing grooms get all emotional though.
omg I would die if I had to sing in front of people. It sounds like you have a great voice though so I’m sure you have nothing to worry about 🙂

I’m not doing that as his gift but we are doing the exact same thing!! We’re getting married on the beach so we won’t have shoes but at our reception I will have running shoes and he will have Kobe’s. We were also going to get his groomsmen matching personalized Kobe’s. He works at Nike so we definitely have a shoe problem haha. My shoes will have our wedding date and his will have our initials and “for…ever” because we always say that to each other!

Sorry I had to do a screen shot. He is getting a watch. He loves collecting Burberry watches and doesn’t have this one.

we agreed not to do gifts. But, I got him a liytle something that had a lot of sentimental vslue. I had cufflinks made on etsy and I put his favorite picture of his grandmother on her wedding day in them. And then DH surprised me at the reception by singing a song to me that he wrote. So we surprised eachother

Haha. That was my plan too, but I saw a pic of a skeleton watch and had to get him one. My bank account is definitely complaining though.
Aw both of your gifts to each other are really touching! How thoughtful 🙂

I haven’t bought it yet but my Fiance loves watches and has quite an extensive collection (that almost rivals my Coach bag collection lol) so I’ll be getting him this Movado watch. That brand is his favorite. Its around $500.

- Wedding: July 2014 - Prague
I got him cufflinks. Black and white stripes were our (very casual) theme, and I couldn’t believe when I found the perfect set!
ETA: He got me an iPod so I could listen to music as I was getting ready. 😀

I’m sure I’ll be tempted, since I love giving gifts, but our birthdays are both right after the wedding, so I’ll just have to wait for that if I find something he’d love 🙂
