I did something similar with the box of gifts. I created this on fancy white paper with black matte and will put inside with all the gifts.

Stamped metal keychain with the coordinates of our ceremony (I got me one, too) and a stamped metal love letter (side of a credit card). We’re huge note writers, so he’ll love having a permanent one. πŸ™‚

I got Fiance a gorgeous pocket watch and a hollow egg with a little note in it (super cute thing I found on Etsy).

He got me =)

Honestly at the time, I was more focused on picking out something cute for my BMs than I was for my husband!

Love your idea, OP!  So creative!  I got Fiance a pair of Burberry cufflinks that he will wear for the wedding and of course whenever after.  I told him ages ago that if we got married, that’s what I would get him, so I did πŸ™‚ He knows I have them, but he doesn’t get to have them until the night before the wedding.  I don’t think he is getting me anything, though.

I’m so boring, I’m getting him silver cuff links from Tiffanys with our monogram. He was really excited about the tux he bought and his new French shirt, I wanted him to have something special.

These are so cute! I didn’t even think about this… are we supposed to get each other stuff? Now I kinda want to!

I got him an iPod mini.  His house was broken into and all they took was his 8-year-old iPod, and when we were looking at replacements, that’s the model he liked.

I thought about getting it engraved, but we did that with our rings and since it’s technology, it won’t last forever.

My fiancee and I decided not to buy each other gifts because we were already paying for the wedding ourselves and we are remodeling our kitchen. But I cheated a little bit and made him something, and my “gift” is more about experiences than an actual thing.

I planned one date for each month of our first year of marriage. I wrote up little poems for each date, put them in envelopes sealed with stickers that said, “Do not open until (month)” and put each envelope in a little $1 photo album. Next to each envelope there is a space for us to insert a picture when we go on the date.

The poem on the front page of the album read,


A Year of Dates


Who says when we’re married we can’t go on dates?

Let’s make our first year of marriage fun, memorable, and great

I’ve thought of ideas and made all the plans

All I need is your company, your hand in my hand

No peeking, though, don’t spoil the surprise

Let’s make some memories,

Love, your soon-to-be bride

I bought him personalized cufflinks months ago but of course his shirt doesn’t have cufflink holes. Anyway, he’ll get them still because they are made out of wood and go with the whole theme of our wedding! 

I also got him an engraved scotch glass and I’ll be buying him an expensive bottle of scotch which he’ll love. πŸ™‚
