I think it would be nice just to exchange letters and might do that. I personally don’t need a gift from him and all he requests is a grooms cake, although I don’t know if that counts as a gift.

I’m tossing two ideas… one is a decent watch… but he’s never really been a watch guy. I’m not sure if that’s because he’s never owned one or he’s just not a watch guy. 

My other idea was personalized license plates… but then I thought that might be silly!

 

Thoughts?

I’m going to get him a pocket watch.

I am going the boudoir photo album route just because he has told me that is something that he would love. However, in your boat, I think the idea of getting him a ukulele is so perfect. It would be great since he already has said he wants to learn to play it and it would be the perfect reminder of your wedding with your wedding in Hawaii. Very cute idea.

Ummm, I’m giving him a wife?  Haha, I don’t think we’ll be exchanging gifts – we’re trying to save for a house and don’t spend a lot of money on extras these days!

He always dreamed of being a pilot, so I’m buying him flying lessons! Also I’ll be giving him cuff links to wear the day of.

I had boudior pics for mine.  We didn’t really do an official exchanging of gifts because we were moving right after the wedding and needed money.

I gave him abstract snowflake cufflinks on our wedding day and on our honeymoon I bought him a watch (Yay Citizen Ecodrive!).  I got a cashmere scarf (which he steals).

I want to give my groom a flip camera – to symbolize the memories that we will make together as husband and wife. We also aren’t going to have a videographer, so at least we can have some videoed moments of us candidly on it too!

We decided that we won’t be giving gifts. Instead we will be writting a little note to one another and we’ll have our best man/maid of honor deliver it for us the morning of.

We’re not doing gifts. That whole giving ourselves to one another for life thing seemed present enough 😉

I had never heard of a gift that you get your groom before being part of wedding sites.  I thought giving yourself to one another was enough.  In actuality we have extremely splurged on our honeymoon (diving on the great barrier reef and Turtle Island) and this is our present to each other.  We also splurged on our wedding bands which I just love!

I thought about boudoir photos…but he said he doesnt want them, i got him a watch for his engagement gift….we’re spending the night before the wedding together, so maybe just go out for an awesome breakfast with champagne before we part ways to get ready (hair appt isnt til 4pm)? We are doing letters as well.

I LOVE the uke idea, that’s sweet and memorable.
