What are you (or did you) Giving Your Fiance for a Wedding Present?

Recommended Posts

(if you are) i know not everyone does this tradition but i really want too and am looking for some new ideas!

 

some of the ideas i have now are:

  • really nice watch
  • handmade box with 50 little folded pieces of antique paper, each one with a place around the world we haven't been and can travel to together over the next 50 years of our marriage
  • art deco diamond and platinum cufflinks
  • Boudoir photos

I am torn on this as well. We keep going back and forth about giving each other anything.

I do not want to do the boudoir pictures because what does he do with them after? Keep them in a photoalbum that he can't show anyone? I am just a little confused about that part, so while I think they look amazing, I don't think its really practical or something he will really care about.

He is big into music, so I could get him some new instruments or something music related, but I can't bring that along, so when do I give it to him.

I am more lost than you, so I am totally no help. How about you help me.

I was going to ask the very same question...

Mike is obnoxious in that anything he wants, he buys. So, every holiday, birthday, etc there is NOTHING to get him. He already has a really nice watch (that he bought himself last year!). I don't want to do boudoir photos, so I have no clue what to get him. Of course, I already told him what I want - the Coach Legacy leather satchel:)

Can't wait to hear what all you girls got/are getting your FIs...

Ok so Christine and Ann, how many times does your DH look at them now? I guess in the back of my mind I can't see them looking at them very often. If that's the case do you still think it was a good gift?
