For his stocking I got him – a skull pen, a twig pencil he admired in Tasmania, ground coffee, an AC/DC t-shirt, a handcuffs bottle opener keyring (he couldn’t find one anywhere when we were at the hotel in Tasmania, and I told him, as I have many times, that he should have one on a keyring) and a head massager I got from the dollar shop – it is just as amazing as the $30 one from Australian Geographic! Two presents I got him that were going to be stocking presents but didn’t fit were a personally covered A5 exercise book for his studies next year and The Big Bang Theory trivia box.
Then I got him a pillow for his bed, as the ones he has are really old, a cushion with a really nice cover similar to one we saw in Tasmania, a Linkin Park t-shirt (last minute from the dollar shop too), and a babes 2016 calendar (dollar shop).
I get a stocking every year at home so he doesn’t have to worry about that. He got me a blu-ray player so I can watch DVDs or blu-ray on our downstairs TV (the old DVD player only would connect if you disconnect the cable tv, smart TV) – this I asked for and sent him links to specific ones, The Hobbit movie 2016 wall calendar – this I asked for and sent him the link to, and finally, one he thought of without my input and I love, these gorgeous Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (the breed my dogs are) ornaments!
The brown and white one is Blenheim (what my older dog is), the pure brown one is Ruby, the black and brown one is Black and Tan, and the brown black and white one is Tricolour (what my younger dog is, and our first dog was).

- Wedding: March 2016 - Sand Key Park- Clearwater Beach Elopement
I got my fiance engraved chopsticks (one says his name in English, the other says his name in Japanese). He eats so much Chinese and Japanese food that I knew he’d love it. I also got him a new lightweight (we live in Florida) black v-neck sweater and comfy socks.
He got me a new long knitted cardigan that I wanted, two new cami shirts, and green/red/white Christmas leggings with reindeer, then he got me an engraved Zippo lighter, that says “Merry Christmas” and then my name.

that’s so cute!!! a few years ago dh did the same thing for me and i thought it was so romantic. i love putting up our tree and decorating it each year because it always reminds me of when he came home with it as a surprise.

Yes, I agree! I was so excited! We had a small tabletop tree before that I’d wrap with a couple of dim LED fairy lights and hang some mini-ornaments on. In comparison, this new tree feels so opulent and special! Every year after this, I’ll think of him, too!

For me: New laptop case and a refurbished kitchen aid stand mixer! I love it but can’t help but think the money could have been put towards a ring

Love your South Sea strand, I have set hubby to hunt some down for me, but I don’t want him to overpay.. Can I ask where your Fiance bought them? If there is a specific country where they are more affordable or where i get more bang for buck, i wouldnt mind.. 🙂
lol, not only are we almost ring twins, but we got our SOs the same tie in different colors!
I also got him another tie and some new cufflinks, and he got me Louboutins and a new ring to celebrate that we just bought a new home together.

at source for sure. Even with shipping he says ones from south sea islands shipped via China proved best value for the quality. He bought online this way.

We bought new living room furniture and decided we wanted that more than a traditional gift.

Thank you! I can’t wait to start looking for them! I have wanted them for ages, but have only seen them at Mikimoto’s in Paris and there they cost the same as my first flat.

We kept it minimal since our wedding is in 7 1/2 months and got each other wedding rings! Since mine was almost 5 times the cost of his, he also got Madden 2015 and a few odds and ends. I was just happy he didn’t have to work until the day after Christmas.
