I was making a list of things I need to do for my wedding and I realized that I haven’t picked out a gift for my groom yet!
What are you/did you get for your groom?
He doesn’t like a lot of the traditional things like cuff links and pocket watches.

Boudoir pictures! My groom is the same, he doesn’t like traditional gifts like watches and cuff links, but I know he’ll enjoy the photos.

about a year ago I began documenting every single memory i had of fun things Fiance and I did together and I spent like $200 on scrapbooking stuff.
then my computer got stolen and i lost it all.
now i have nooo idea what to do, but i think ill start the book and make it a “work in progress”. Im pretty bummed.
But im thinking of boudoir pics if i lose enough weight!! idk what he would actually do with them after the wedding though, it’s not something I would like him to display on a wall, or in his wallet haha.

congrats on the 7 day countdown!! my guy is the same, so i’ve been trying to think of something else besides a watch, etc. i’m thinking a sturdy waterproof, drop resistant digital camera like this:
BUT i was at walmart the other day and saw that they are also making small video cameras that are waterproof as well. he’s very hard on his things, and if it was waterproof we could take it on the honeymoon :o)

@Nlmiele– That’s awful 🙁 I’m so sorry. That seriously makes me so sad. I thought about boudoir too, but now with a week to go it’s probably a little late for that. Plus my photographer is male and he would NOT like that.
@nurseamanda- oooh! A video camera is a good idea. Those little flip ones look pretty fun 🙂 he likes toys like that.

I was thinking about getting him a pair of sunglasses I know he likes since we’ll be headed to Mexico the next day! If I had a limitless budget, I’d get him a new watch just because he loves nice watches 🙂

I would love to do the boudoir pics, but as a plus-size bride, I’m not so sure I’d be comfortable with that…..
Next thought is a nice watch, but he really wants a Tag Heuer watch & not sure I can swing $1200 into the budget without him noticing….
Hmmmm…..I don’t know!!!

I got him a damascus steel Boker knife (he has always wanted one). It has a pearl handle and I want to have it engraved. Something he will cherish, I think every man should have a good knife.

I got him Mickey Watch Cufflings. They were a limited edition thing and since we’re both Disney fans and love watches (But will never wear one) I thought it was a great compromise.
I’ve been trying to think of something non-tradtional to get him, but haven’t thought of anything yet.

I must live a very sheltered life, because I had to look up what boudoir pictures are. LOL the first thing that came up were a few <ahem> interesting images! @Bella13 if I had a photography session like that, I wouldn’t do it in front of a male photographer either.
I’m kind of stuck on this topic too. My Fiance would like a watch, but he already has a watch in the price range I’m looking and doesn’t always wear it, so there’s no reason to get him another one.
He asked me what I want, and I didn’t know what to tell him either!

I’m doing a boudoir shoot and album. But I’m still toying with the idea of something else as well…just not sure what. The Guy doesn’t wear a watch, and he already has lots of cufflinks….I will have to keep thinking.

A Coach watch and then getting it engraved. Like me, he loves Coach and already has a wallet and a belt.

Not that this is the point, but I have to say I never fully understood the whole bride and groom getting each other a gift as being a necessity. I’ve felt, what kind of “gift” do we really need to give to each other other than each other? However since it’s a tradition I probably would do it if we had more money. Lol, we are spending every dime of the little we have on this wedding and most of our time,…
But then again, who knows — gifts can take any form! 🙂 We’ll see where we’re at toward the end.
In any case I think if there’s any way you could do some “questioning” about things your FH wants or paying extra extra attention to what he says/thinks/has you might get a good idea on what he might love as a gift! Good luck! 🙂
