Myself! (jk) I haven’t decided yet so I’m going to ask him. I know what I’ll want for my ring, figure he should probably pick his engagement gift too.

ME!  Our marriage!  We want to re-do our guest bathroom so we’ve decided not to do gifts.  Our bands are a gift to one another and honestly, he’s not a great gift giver so it would be a ton of pressure for him! He’s not a big watch wearer and doesn’t have to wear suits to work so cuff links would be out.  We’ve just decided not to.  We’re going to write letters, though, so we do have something to open the day of. 

 

If we DID, a watch would definitely be his gift!

I really really really! wanted to get him another watch (I got him a watch for our engagement), but it wasn’t in the budget :(. So I got him a bottle of Macallan 21, because he loves whiskey and we started dating when we were 21. And I got him nice cuff links that resemble the shape of our cake/venue.

Nothing – no room in the budget.

If there was, I’d totally get him a new set of golf clubs!

This.  We’re spending enough money on the day as it is.  I guess that’s the gift to each other.

I picked and paid for his parents’ gifts and his groomsman gifts — now I have to get a gift for him, too? Wink

Mine’s a bit of a gun enthusiast, and there’s a lightweight Kimber .45 handgun he’s been eyeing that I’ll probably end up getting eventually. It’ll have to wait til a couple months after the wedding though, when my finances have had a chance to recover! Or maybe I’ll go the cheap route and do a boudoir photo shoot. Always a fan favorite!

We’re not getting each other anything.. I asked him what he planned to get me as a wedding gift, he looked at my like I had 3 eyes lol We buy each other stuff all the time, there’s no need to spend the extra money.

I don’t think we’ll do wedding gifts either, we’ll be spending enough. But if I get an engagement ring I want to get him an engagement gift too.

So far I’ve gotten him Red Sox cufflinks and this tie clip that he was drooling over but didn’t want to pay for himself. They’re both tucked away in my desk so I’m not tempted to give them before the day of! I want to give him something else too, just not sure what yet

@lionskitty:  Does he like sports?  What about tickets to a game after the wedding?  I think it would be cool if you got him something to look forward to AFTER the wedding for just the 2 of you. 

 

ETA:  I’m big on experiences as gifts!  Fiance likes STUFF, though.

@Mars62312:  Not really, he only watches sports as something to do with his brother. :S

We combined our gifts and got a new set of luggage.
