Tue Sep 04, 2012 1:23 pm

This may be a silly question but is anyone getting a gift for FH on your wedding day?

Oooh Ruby! ;)

I haven't really come up with anything but would like to get him something small but sentimental.

Nope. He got half a wedding. My DH isn't sentimental anyway.

Since we are getting married on our 6 year anniversary, I thought that it would be kinda nice to get him something. I brought him a watch a couple of years ago, but he has had he eye on this other watch for a while. It has taken a lot of convincing not to buy the watch that he likes as I bought it for him last week. I am going along with the line that I want him to wear something that I have given him, rather than a new watch which he has bought himself! hehehehhe I am planning on asking his brother to give it to him in the morning...

I also bought him this funny "game over" tshirt with a stick figured married couple. The groom is unhappy and the bride is smiling.. We saw it in Thailand years ago and laughed about it for ages. I will give that to him in the hotel room after the reception!

I'm going to get FH a watch. He has been eyeing it off for over a year but won't buy it for himself. He doesn't get to wear a watch for work, so will only wear it on weekends, which means it will last ages.
I'm going to get 'Until the end of time' engraved on the back.

I don't know what I would get DP. He's a very sentimental person but he doesn't like 'stuff'. Maybe I would get him a new watch, but he got his current one for his 21st which he adores.



I have the same problem, FH doesnt want or need general stuff so he is difficult to buy for and he already has a good watch... hmmmm need to think to this

If you do feel that you would like to give him something, why not write him a beautiful letter that you could have delivered to him in the morning whilst he is getting ready. Maybe a nice bottle of his favourite drink, have it engraved with a special message and you can drink it on a special occasion (your 10 / 25 year anniversary, the birth of your first child, your child's 1st / 21st birthday, or the night before your child's wedding)



those are all great ideas thanks :)

Im not so much getting a gift as such, but I am going to arrange for a classic car to pick the guys up before the wedding. My FH always go on abou how the wedding day is all about the bride, I thought it might be a nice idea to let him know that it isn't always about the bride, so thought a at to pick him and the boys up might be a nice little surprise for him...

I got FH a pocket watch... I figured it can be something he can pass down... one of our grandkids can have it to remind them of the love their grandparents had :D . I have engraved a brahman bull (FH's fav) with his brand on it, on the front. And on the back it says I will love you for all of time. Then inside it says To Nick, Love Always, Carolyn. I got it done in the US - as I couldn't find anyone in Aus to do the custom engraving on the front, I'm thinking about taking it to someone to get the wedding date put on it... if there is enough room. I will also get his wrist watch fixed and cleaned for him. It was the first Christmas present I ever bought for him... he doesn't wear it much - because he can't at work, so it is still in pretty good condition, but it has stopped working, so I will have to get it fixed & may as well get it cleaned while we are there. I still have the box, so I'll probably just put it in that.

I would LOVE to go back to Sydney and have another shoot with Bexterity, but I would end up giving it away well before the day...... I have no idea what to get him instead, especially since he gave his whole retro console collection to me. Hopefully I come up with something :lol:

I had a new thought on a gift thanks to you ladies with your alcohol!!
I'm thinking I might get him a carton of Rekorderlig, as he has developed a taste for it, or a bottle of something from the year he was born though that may be hard as he is only just going to have turned 23, so I might have to look around now.

Rekorderlig is yummy :) but too easy to drink, i think a bottle of something from the year he was born is more thoughful :)

That's true. I should get to looking now, at least then I have more chance of getting it for him, even if I do have to hide it somewhere in the meantime :lol:

Something from the year FH is born is a great idea. I got the thirty year old one because I'm 30... so this will be his other 30 year old :)
