Oh man, I’m the wrong person to ask. I’m trying to convince my family to get me small gift cards and my Fiance to just put the money toward something fun we can do together because everything I want seems to cost so much money. I can totally sympathize!

What genre of books do you like? Maybe I can recommend something…

One thing I asked my Mother-In-Law for my birthday once was a flash drive.  I had my husband research for a good flash drive and find the best deal so his parents didn’t have to spend too much.  It works so well for me!  During my wedding planning days, I used it to store all my photos and ideas and carried it around with me everywhere to show my vendors and view on different computers around the house and office.  I believe my flash drive was only 20 bucks.

For Christmas, I usually just give a wishlist to my husband, and he’ll relay items to his family.  He does the same for me, and it seems indiscrete and works fairly well. 

As for great books : Dry by A. Burroughs, History of Love by Nicole Krauss, and Last Days of Dogtown by Anita Diamante were my most recent books, all of which I loved.

Have you read any Barbara Kingsolver? If not, she’s a must; check out The Poisonwood Bible. Isabel Allende is great, too. I loved "The Time Traveler’s Wife" (can’t remember the author but it’s been everywhere lately) and Sue Monk Kidd’s "The Secret Life of Bees."

If you’re interested in breaking out of chick lit and don’t mind a more intense/adult-themed novel, check out Middlesex or The Kite Runner. Oh, and I also loved The Memory Keeper’s Daughter.

HTH!

Eat, Pray, Love! It’s an inspring book and will remind you to quiet your mind at times when you get caught up in wedding planning details.

I was thinking of asking for subscriptions to wedding magazines. They’ll think I’m nuts of course, but it’s something I spend money on every month, so it’s really useful.

I’ve heard Eat, Pray, Love! is a great book…it’s on my list of "real" books to read!

The Christmas before the wedding, I asked for photos of my guy. He only had two from his childhood when we met, and this was so important to me. I was also able to use them for our Love Story/Documentary and then put together an album of them.

What about asking her to get something off your registry? That way its a win win for both of you.

I would ask for movie tickets. Free movies and free popcorn are always great presents. I love getting those =)

My Fiance and I created wish lists on amazon. Mine are mostly dvds, cookbooks, and workout accessories. I told my family and his that I’d be just as satisified with things off our registry (hence why I started it beefore Christmas). Both my Fiance and I also have birthdays the week before Christmas, so double the gifts…well, more like double the trouble of trying to figure out what we want.
