Im going to write him a super romantic card. I got him an Hermes bow tie (he loves hermes) and am having the inside monogramed. I think my dad is also giving him his Rolex which will be from me, and my parents. Im so excited about it – so special.

lol I thought his gift was marrying me!!!!

I had never actually heard of this tradition before Weddingbee, but now I definitely plan to write him a love letter to open the day of (we actually have a long tradition of hiding very short ‘love notes’ around the apartment for each other to find randomly).  I’m not sure if we’ll do actual gifts.

we dont want to write our own vows for everyone to hear during the ceremony,as we are both pretty private ppl, so we are going to write them and that be the gift to each other.  although i may also splurge and get him a fancy hat or antique pocket watch

I have awhile to think about this – but I know that I REALLY want a nice camera. I’d feel weird telling him what I want though so I might have to make his Mom throw him a hint or five. 😉

I’ll probably buy Fiance some awesome power tool he wants to be funny (and the coolest wife ever, of course). He loves nothing more than a gift from Lowe’s. Originally I thought I’d go with the traditional watch idea, since he doesn’t own one, but he’ll probably never wear it and I’d hate to spend a lot of money on something that’s going to sit in a drawer for years.

I’m doing a boudoir session and giving him a small album of those pictures. I’m also going to write him a romantic letter (which really is a gift – I am not normally that sentimental but he loves that gushy stuff)

My FI’s grandmother is quite sick and has an oxygen tank. Since she lives in another area of the country, she is unable to come to our wedding. Fiance is heartbroken over it as his grandmother helped raised him, so I wanted to get him something that would remind him of her on our wedding day. I found a seller on Etsy who makes photo charms that come on a kilt pin so that the groom can pin it inside his suit or under the boutonniere and got one with his grandma’s picture on it 🙂 Here is a pic of the item (person on the tile is not his grandmother, just a photo from the seller’s shop):

I am also planning on getting him a watch or metal bracelet with engraving, some Star Wars boxers because he’s a big geek, and a card.

I’m a pianist/piano teacher, so he got me the Kate Spade clutch I had been gawking over:

And I got him a pair of sunglasses that he was lusting over, and lego cufflinks for the wedding:

Im giving him a race car adventure — where he gets to actually be in a race car as it drives 160 mph.. Im sure hell enjoy it, since its adventurous! And its something hell never forget! Im thinking that right before giving him the tickets, that id give him a first gift first– like.. cuff links– or a season of law and order– Or maybe a helmet then suprise him with a second gift.

 

 

He said hell get me a Necklace ive been wanting for a very long time. Its a 16″ white gold necklace with a solitaire right in the middle. Its very Elizabeth Taylor [ from the movie Cat on a hot tin roof ].

@GeekChic:  I LOVE that idea of a picture of his grandmother! Who was the Etsy seller?

I got mine a digital camera, he’s been needing one since he spilled his in a class at a football game. I will hurt him if he breaks this one! I got him a Nikon digital compact one.

No clue what he’s getting me if anything!
