Hello ladies-

Any of you getting your future husband a gift to open on his wedding day or day before??  I was planning on getting him one so we discussed it and decided to do it.  But then I found out my gift idea is the same exact thing his ex wife got him for a wedding gift.  Needless to say I was extremely disappointed and now stumped at what to even get him.  Or should we just scrap the whole idea?  But I kind of like it.... Help!

What was the gift you were going to get him?

 

I was thinking something like a watch because my FI is a big watch fan. But of course when he ordered the groomsmen's gifts, which are watches, he ordered one for himself. So I don't want to give him something that he is getting his groomsmen the same thing.

 

Another thing I thought of and I might do is a boudoir session book for just him from me. Soemthing on the cover saying "for Nathan's eye's only." I have seen that on this site. I think that's something he would really love. He always points out that I wear fuzzy pink pj's to bed hahaha so this would really through him off guard.

I am planning on doing this, and having either a close friend take the pictures with our DSLR or getting our family photographer to do it for me.  You can get great deals on photobooks, so I don't anticipate it being a huge expense :)

I have been wondering what I should get my FI. My plan is to do it without talking to him because unfortunately his father died a few years back, and I know he wants him there somehow. So my thought process was to make his gift incorporate his dad in some way, but I just cant seem to find anything I feel is right. Any ideas ?

You could do something like get him a memory pin or something to wear, kind of like what a lot of girls do for their bouquets?

I'm not sure if they do something like that for guys, but worth a look!

 

EDIT: Of course they do! :)

I was going to do the boudoir photo shoot and book.  He was super bummed when he realized I was going to do it but won't do the same thing as his ex.  I still want to do it for him maybe for our first anniversary for the "paper" or another holiday, but he thinks I totally scrapped the idea forever (I was SUPER disappointed when I found that out).

 

I thought about a watch, but he doesn't wear watches lol.  He said he used to but doesn't really any more so I am just kind of stumped!

Love this idea!  I have also seen people save a seat and put that persons picture there or have a "memorial" table at the front.


I just realized I am almost half way to 150, YAY!

My fiancé is the same. He has a little collection of watches and loves them. I was going to do that but he ended up ordering himself a watch along with the groomsmen's watches he is getting them. Urgh.

What is it with men and watches? Haha... I know my FI would love it if I got him a watch but his taste is sooooo expensive that I don't have the budget to buy him one he would want- so I will go with something more sentimental (aka- cheap)! Haha

I don't know either. I was thinking about the boudoir as well but I don't know. He hates watched and everything else he likes is too expensive. I still have the messages he sent me when we first started dating and I thought of making a little book with them.
