I’m going the traditional route and getting him a watch. Dropped it off for engraving last night! Whatever direction you decide to go, check Overstock. I saved a ton on his gift and the bridesmaids’ gifts there.

I’m having the same problem emg. We don’t want to spend a lot on gifts, but we want to do it. He too is a hunter(both bow and rifle) and an avid beer drinker. He has everything he wants, as he has the habit of buying things as soon as he decides he wants it. So, my idea is to find a unique, old glass bottle/jar and have something nice engraved on it. He LOVES to gather and seperate and save his change. So I thought it’d be a great idea.

I’m getting my fiance a fishing rod and reel (HAHA), a more "traditional" gift- a watch, and I am thinking of doing some boudoir pics as well. I think that would be his favorite! =)

I’m ordering a 6 pack of my FI’s favorite beer (MOOSE DROOL LOL). He wanted to get it for the beer choice at our reception but it’s too expensive, so I’m getting him a 6 pack. I’m going to ask our photog to tag along when it’s delivered b/c I want to get a picture of him drinking beer with his Dad, and Grandpas. I think it’ll be cute and totally a surprise.
I’m also thinking of getting him motorcycle riding lessons or a Calvin & Hobbes or The Far Side boxed set.

I got him a Movado watch and I’m having the back engraved with a special message. For someone who loves fishing you could make him a reservation for a cabin at a nearby fishing getaway?

I plan on doing a boudoir photoshoot and getting him Red Wings tickets! He actually requested the photoshoot, I use to model and my friend is a model and can get me in with a great photographer for free. So I feel guilty not buying anything so I’m gonna buy the tickets.

I’m giving him a collectors edition of our fav geeky game: Catan. We used to play it online together all the time for "date nights" (we’re a long distance couple) but the gaming website just retired it.
On our first weekend away together, we stopped at a gaming shop & saw this 3D Catan Chest & board… he swooned. I made a mental note: if we marry, buy it for him!

We’re not spending a lot on gifts for each other, just something small and meaningful with some symbolism behind it. He looooooves hot chocolate, and early on we nearly broke up over an incident where his hot chocolate spilled all over my laptop and I screamed at him at Starbucks, and if there’s one thing he hates, it is being yelled at in public, big mother issue. Anyway the laptop died and we decided that our relationship was more valuable than a laptop. So I got mugs that say "I love my husband" and "I love my wife", and I’m going to bring them with us on our honeymoon with some hot chocolate mix.

I was hoping to get some customized cufflinks for him so he could wear them that day. I was also considering since I am on a budget as a student & already making sacrifices for the ring that I would tell him after the ceremony that although I cant give him anything huge right now that I would give him something when we moved into a house (we are in a condo right now) I would explain to him how much I know he wished his grandma was at the wedding to witness it (she passed away two years ago & she practically raised him) but that I would make sure she would continue to shine in our lives by getting all the furniture ( which is all over the house) refinished for us that was hers – so we can continue to enjoy it & continue to have her spirit with us.
It’s not much but I think sentimentally he would appreciate it – especially since its like 5 huge pieces of furniture which he truly adores & always says he wants to keep and get re-finished when we get our house.
