    Don't laugh...but I think I would have to say paying for his Detroit Lions tattoo. What can I say, he's a die-hard fan. =)

    Oh my gosh! Jbasore!!! Did you guys go to the one at DTE last summer? I got him tickets to MSU vs Notre Dame football last fall... he's a HUGE notre dame fan.. and I'm a HUGE state fan so it was a fun time. I got him a digital SLR camera for wedding day so that will probably top the list.

    If I'm really trying hard on gifts, I either to a tattoo or a musical instrument related thing! Cuz those are things he wouldn't normally get for himself.

    Probably his Michigan Football jersey. It has his last name on it, and instead of a regular number, it's the pi symbol. :)He also really loved the new bike I got him for his bday last weekend. (His old one was falling apart and he needed a more reliable way to get to class).

    Last year for our 5 year anniversary/his birthday (they're 2 weeks apart) I bought him a Movado watch.  I saved for months and months and a friend of mine worked part time at a jewelry store, so she let me used her discount.  I was so excited since I had been planning it for so long, then 2 weeks before I was going to give it to him, he told me he didn't like Movado's anymore.  WHAT!?! I was devastated (he had been talking about wanting one since I met him), and wasn't sure if I should still give it to him.Fast forward 2 weeks when he proposed, I was glad I decided to keep the watch, lol.  And he ended up loving it!  He also claims he doesn't remember saying he didn't like Movados.

    Well, it was almost a trip to Chicago for his birthday, until we realized we'll NEVER be able to take a trip together in June for the next 20 years because of the 500 kids' birthday parties in June and father's day.So instead, it was small, sentimental stuff.  I got him a bunch of stuff for his birthday last year, including a photo collage in a nice frame of him with Amanda and all the nieces & nephews from all his races that he ran, and topped off the gift with a 40 oz. of beer for his 40th birthday (he loves his Miller Lite more than life itself, LOL).

    I worked with his Mom one year to get his Father's watch repaired for him.  He would have never spent the money on it himself.  He loved it!

    He would probably say his XBOX 360 and a case of beer that he couldn't buy in MI ... It was his Christmas gift a few years ago. I would pick his watch :)

    ok i take that back... those are what i think are the coolest gifts - he would say his LV wallet with his initials engraved in it or this stupid watch that he's wanted for awhile. (FI has a million watches - he wanted a wedding watch rather than a wedding band ha... like that would happen!)

    Meghan--I love the hot air balloon idea! We were supposed to do that for my mom's birthday years ago and they ended up cancelling a million times because the weather never cooperated. Boo Michigan weather! :(

    I got him an autographed Henrik Zetterberg stick last year for his b-day (his fave player!) I was so excited, I videotaped him opening it bc I assumed he would go nuts! Yup, not at all. He said "Cool, thanks" and went back to the Ipod Touch I had also bought him...he loved that more! I made him "reopen" the stick and do a better reaction for me...i was not a happy camper! I think those were the best ones, i was so proud of myself!

    Would probably have to be the gift I got him our first Christmas together. It made him cry. His dog had died a couple months prior, so I got a picture of her from his mom and got it etched onto a keepsake box. Inside it I got a knife (he collects) and had the dog's name engraved on the handle.

    I got him the Xbox 360 for his birthday 2 years ago and watching his mouth drop to the floor and being speechless for 5 min was the best reaction!  He was also surprised at the gift I got him for our wedding.  He only wears it when he isn't working because he doesn't want it to get ruined.  Those would have to be the best gifts I ever gave him.
