      Hey canadiangirl,

       

      I think it is a really good idea but is it something maybe you'd like to reserve for a present for a birthday or Christmas and do something a bit lower in price since you're buying multiple gifts? I love anything having to do with technology, but I do think a wedding is an opportunity to really put yourself out there on a personal level and include something that honors the both of you that he would appreciate. I know it has been mentioned before, but what about the boudoir photoshoot? Is that something you think he would appreciate? There's also an engraved money clip with your wedding date as an idea (good for travel as well and would be something to remember the date :), possibly have the shirt he's wearing for the wedding monogrammed, etc.  I'll try and brainstorm some other things, but those are off the top of my head from a "personal" level. Don't get me wrong, I think the iPad would be awesome, but I think that could also be an idea for a bday/holiday.

       

      I didn't have a man of honor but I did have my best guy friend walk me down the aisle. The gift for him was the outfit for the wedding (since that adds up with men's pants and the special "breathe easy" material dress shirt.

       

      Hope that helps!

            Of course, happy to help! I think the wallet is a fabulous idea! I actually just this past weekend bought my husband a wallet and I think he was more excited about that than any gift I've ever given him! Sometimes it's the simple things (and most useful :) I think the wallet & the wedding shirt being engraved would be awesome! 

             

            In case you need any inspiration, these were my wedding photographers that also do boudoir shots...underwater, in cenotes...how HOT are these? In case you needed any inspiration... :)

                  I'm really glad as well! I know it's too bad that we're all over the world on here but the best part is...having the ability to share pics/videos/comments right here instantaneously. What did people do without a computer?? :) Sounds good about the foot candy! Still love that name!

                      I gave my fiance, Reese, two tickets to the Formula One Races in Montreal this June.  He actually cried!
