    I got just a couple golf clubs as a gift for my husband (back in the day) almsot 10 years later and they were just replaced this year ... however the golf clubs will reside in my rarely-used golf bag, so they're still around ; )

      I think a nice watch would be a good gift.

        We decided to forego gifts and treat ourselves to spending the night at a nearby Irish castle after our civil ceremony.

          I have decided I am doing the BD photos as well. He will love them. and I will love them. I also am using it as a good excuse to get in shape. I really need to anyways if I want to be in public wearing a swimsuit down in Mexico for the wedding. I figured if I put the cash down for the BD shoot...and book it a few months out if will force me to get in shape.

          Plus I have always wanted to do a suicidegirls photoshoot ,but i can't cause i'd loose my job if they ever got out.

            My FI is getting BD pics. He will love them and I am excited for the experience. I already booked my session for July 2010 so I have plenty of time to lose the 17 to 22lbs I have been carrying around.

              I know that my FI would say that we are skipping gifts since we are mostly paying for the whole wedding ourselves. We are also in the process of buying a house and it is so not cheap in the DC area.

              But now that I think of it, maybe I should get him a nice set of cufflinks. I am not doing pictures, I'm not shy and am in good shape but having strangers taking pictures of me in provocative poses is just not something I want to do. My FI can take all the pictures that he wants though :)

                This is tough! We are a blended family with five young kids, so BD gifts are out of the question, mainly because I already have the stretch marks!!

                I really want to do something kind of personal that will signify our future together. (I guess that's the idea of the watch...) I liked one of the first ideas of giving a handmade box with fifty places you can travel to together. If anyone has any ideas along these lines, I'd love to know!

                      So I've known I was going to give Boudoir pics but I've been debating on how to give them to him. Here's what I've come up with....I'm getting an letter size paper print of one of my pictures. I'm going to cut it into puzzle pieces and leave one piece each day for the week before we go away (maybe even just a couple of days) then once we get to Punta Cana...that evening I'll put out the last piece and hide the book in our room. I think it will be a super fun way to start our wedding week and I can't wait. My book was just ordered this week so it should be here soon!

                      Here's the pic I'm using for the puzzle:
