I got him playoff tickets to the Red Wings game 🙂 He loves hockey and luckily it was an awesome game. Plus he had me go with him, which was a really nice break from everything a couple of weeks before the wedding!

I’m going to go the traditional route and get him cufflinks, but I’m also starting a journal for him. I’ve written in my own everyday since I was 16 so in addition to what I write in mine I’m starting a “Love Journal” really sappy/corny I know but, we’re getting married June 4 2011 so I’m starting it on June 4 2010. I’m writing him a letter a day, so that on the wedding day he’ll read the first one and then so on…

The only gift Im getting him that he he has no clue about and its just a groom cake A large Jets Helmet i think hell be quite proud lol. Im glad its a surprise though he doesnt wear jewelry or a watch really and hes not much of a gadget kinda guy so Chocolate cake is good for me and him.

I’m thinking of a “naughty” (boudoir album) and “nice” (relationship scrapbook) pair of presents if I can pull it all together in time.   But I love tiffaknee21’s “Under New Management” t-shirt idea 🙂

My DH got a dual degree in Anthropolgy/Archeology, so I got him a replica of the Rosetta Stone, he has it hung in his office. It was so him, and he was so excited when he opened. I love all of the ideas you bee’s have, they sound like great gifts!

I don’t really see the point in buying my groom a gift just for the sake of a gift.  I want to give him something so that he can always look back and cherish our wedding day.  Things like cameras, tickets, gadgets etcs will not be around on our 20th anniversary to show to our children.  Note however, I do think all of these make wonderful gifts for birthdays, anniversarys, etc. 

I really wanted to get my groom something he will have around forever so I am getting him a pocket knife.  His dad has a collection and always says that Fiance will inherit it one day since he is the only son.   It is one of the few things of value his parents have that hope to pass down.  I am getting him a collectible to add to the collection as one of his own.  It is mother of pearl and engraved so it has a wedding look/feel to it.  Hopefully someday he can pass it down to our future son/daughter and always remember our wedding day.

Is there a range for how much one should spend?  I was thinking of getting him some fancy car parts or an SLR camera … but I don’t want to over/under do it. 🙂

Well, this is not so much a gift suggestion because my fiance is rather unusual.  I got him a leather gun case for his most prized antique shotgun.  He’s a markmanship instructor in the military and collects antique firearms.  Basically, I got him something that he will enjoy for many years to come and that he wouldn’t necessarily buy for himself because it is such a splurge.

A humidor and a selection of different cigars- he loved it!  He got me an ipod classic, which I absolutely love too!
