    I saw one of those other "groom's gift" threads, and I love the Boudoir photos for him. And the puppy is my fave (though we already have our 5 year old baby dog, Marley). But Vday Bride, that watch is AWESOME!!!

      I had seen on-line a game called loveopoly and I thought it was neat...FI and I had agreed on a really tight budget...so I bought the game of Life and customized it to be the game of 'our life'...I changed all the career cards to be jobs we have had or would love to have. I used pics of the houses we grew up in and have lived in...and used pictures from our whole lives to cover the game board. It turned out great but have to admit it took an overwhelming amount of time!

          we're not exchanging gifts either because we just bought a new house, new bed & bedroom set, new car etc...so add that up with wedding costs...i think it's enough

          right from our 1st day until now we always write each other really nice cards (for holidays), letters, or cute notes so i was thinking of putting them all into a special book to preserve them as 'US' before our wedding. they have been sitting in a box for years.

            I have been trying to think about this too but like some of you, my FI & I have everything we need...when we see something we buy it or save for it. He has a nice watch, we just bought a house, he loves computer games but has what he needs for that...so I'm at a loss

              Well, I don't know about everyone else's FI but mine is not really a detail oriented type of guy. He is not SUPER involved in the wedding process but he does give input here and there.

              He says he doesn't care about the small details, he just wants to marry me and start the rest of his life with me. (tear drop tear drop) lol

              So I figured I'd get him a gift that would make him a little more excited about going down to DR to get married.

              I'm surprising him with a limo to take us to the airport and then, to his ultimate surprise, we'll be flying first class. It's something we've always wanted to do but never could afford it. So what better time then our wedding to take the plunge.

              After viewing this site though, I've also decided to do a BD shoot and give him the book the morning of our wedding. It's a gift for him but also a gift to myself. Just gotta hit the gym now. lol

                My FI is a huge watch finatik (sp?)!! He has been having custom rings, necklaces, and earrings made for me over the past few years. So I decided to have a custom watch made for him. He loves skulls (odd i know) so they are laser etching skulls in the face of the watch, with flames that have our wedding date and initials hidden in them. Unless you knew they were there you cannot tell. This way he will never forget our wedding anniversary! :-)
