great idea! We are keeping our gifts simple & easy- he’s either getting a new necklace for the vatican blessed rosary cross his grandmother gave him or cologne. I asked him to get me new perfume.

I bought him fun socks and personalized custom-made cufflinks and some of his favorite snacks from where we live.  The socks and cufflinks were also related to where we live and since we got married out of state in my hometown, I wrote him a note explaining that I wanted him to have a piece of home with him.

Are we supposed to get each other gifts? We are going to split the remaining $30K+ balance on the wedding O_o

 

Is this a tradition?  Neither one of us has heard about this before; just curious.

I’m getting him a wallet – he’s pretty picky about gifts, so when he started eyeing one in JoS. A Banks I asked him to let me get it for him as his gift.  I’m going to write a long letter for him to read on our big day and it will be inside 🙂

I got him this:

 

 

If you can’t tell, it’s a custom fishing lure that says “hooked, 6.30.13, J&S”. We’re getting married on a ship, and his favorite pasttime is fishing.

 

He’s going to see this for the first time the night of our wedding, on our honeymoon (I just got it today, and have to hide it for 25 days! Ahh! Good thing he’s working a lot of OT and I’ll have my period soon!):

my fiancee and I met on match.com.  i plan to make him a heart collage of our emails that we wrote before we met.  A friend gave me the idea…for my bachelorette party she made one of the emails that she and i had written since we became friends…it was really neat…it took all the words that were used most frequently in the emails and they were large, and then the words that were used less were smaller…the words were all multicolored and in the shape of a heart.  

if anyone is interested i can get the name of the program (just had the bachelorette party on friday).

@Diamondgurl: No you don’t have too… My FI and I wanted to, but we’re already over budget. lol. Figured the first thing we can cut are gifts. Besides, the honeymoon will be special enough 🙂

I have the same idea as Haweewee. The wallet he currently has is the same one he’s had since high school. It’s held up pretty well, but the wolf that was embossed on it is no longer visible, you’d never even know it was there if you looked at it. I was going to write him a letter and stick in it. 

I was also planning on giving him some Dalek cufflinks.

You all have such creative ideas (that tattoo is fabulous and hot)! 

I’m going more trad/boring. I’m gifting a dress watch (torn between an Altiplano, Calatrava or Reverso) and a boudoir photobook (more for me, though, since I love lingerie).
