    Are/Did you exchange wedding gifts?

    Tom just asked if I would like him to pay off my car for his wedding gift to me. He said he knows it's not a keepsake, but that it will help me get debt-free, which I agree with. I told him that's great and I think it's a FABULOUS gift.

    I have my BD album for him, but it seems like an awfully small gift compared to paying several thousand dollars to pay off the car.

    Curious what others have gotten from your men?

    Also, other ideas on something I can perhaps add to my BD album gift to make it seem a little more substantial...

      I was going crazy trying to think of something, but Mike said he really doesn't want to exchange gifts. So, I told him our wedding bands will be it. I'll buy his and vice versa. I think he said it because he knows how much I stress out trying to find the "perfect gift" and he's trying to take some of the stress off of me, which it really does!

        We just gave each other our wedding bands, our wedding present was our ttd. It was the best thing we could have spent our money on, we had fun, it was romantic, sexy, and I wish we could do it again, the perfect wedding gift.

          we didn't really exchange gifts. i did give him the b-pics album though. and he wrote me a really sweet card. he also said we're going to get new tennis stuff and make a point to do more stuff like that together, just because we've both been working so much and haven't been taking advantage of where we live (lots of outdoor activities, etc).

            We didn't do anything either. Well when we got back from Cabo I told him he could get the PS2 since he worked so hard to pay for our wedding. But I wouldn't say that was a wedding gift, just a "thank you for wanting to make our dat special gift". :-)

              We aren't exchanging gifts. He isn't a watch guy and has a ton of Broncos stuff already.

              What about an experience? I took my FI to a surprise weekend in Santa Barbara and front row tickets to see Dave Matthews. It cost me an arm and a leg, but so worth it.

              My girlfriend got her FI a chance to race a nascar or something cool to do with a buddy (or you!)

                I got Jeff the B Pics, but didn't really expect him to get me anything. Actually, I kinda demanded that he NOT get me anything! We bought eachother's wedding bands (they cost around the same amount of $), and because he spent so much on my ering I didn't want him buying anything else.

                    I gave him a BD book and card, my sister delivered it to him before the wedding. I had no clue that he got me a present because he had just got me a car and we said that was going to be the gift. His brother came to my room before the wedding with a card and a diamond necklace and I was so shocked. I ended up wearing the necklace that day and loved it with my dress.

                    I was happy with the car idea as well, so I think that is a great gift!

                      I'm going to buy him a painting. It won't be anything extravagant, but something that will hang in our home for years to come and can be a daily reminder to our special day.
