FI's wedding gift

I am completely stumped about what to get FI as a wedding present. What all did you or are you getting your FI? I'm hoping for maybe a little inspiration. TIA!

    I'm getting FI a watch that matches his ring.  It's not a surprise though. He saw it on one of our trips to the jeweler and when he saw it was gone he asked the jeweler about getting another one and kind of pushed the issue until I let him know I was planning to buy it,

    I was going to buy mine a watch too until he went shopping and got one for himself.  Now I'm stuck too...

    I'm not getting my fiance a gift. I'm not sure if that is wrong, but we are spending lots of money by being in Vegas for 5 nights and our honeymoon. We will go see a show in Vegas a few days before our wedding and our wedding guests arrive. I guess that will be considered my gift :)

    I was just thinking about this on the way home tonight. I thought something to do with GOLF since that's all the guy does in the summer. Golf GPS, county course year pass...something like that. Good thing I'm sending him to the Golf Show this weekend!

    Is it terrible that I have no clue what to get him, but that I already told him exactly what I want?Embarassed

    I was thinking about possibly getting his ring or watch engraved.  I really have no clue though.

    Oh, just had a thought...give him a bottle of his favorite booze/wine. I know FI has always craved his own bottle of Johnny Walker Blue...ever since our first date. I know a single shot goes for $50, so I'm afraid what a hole bottle goes for!

    Like dvohnout, we are not exchanging gifts...we aren't really big gift givers, so it's one less thing to stress about.

    I am actually going to take budouir photographs and present them to my FI before the wedding. 

    It may be a little cheesy I know, but I'm making sure to take very classy photos with a very reputable photographer.

    I don't think it's cheesy at all!  If I felt a little better about my body, I would consider this as well!

    That's a great idea as well..  I may actually keep that in mind for a future gift.  Do you order these cufflinks online?

    My FI is a tough one to shop for on the best of days.  So I did the very classy, tasteful boudoir photo shoot in a silk design album.  I'm going to leave it for him just before we part ways the day of the wedding.  Along with I have written a nice letter.  I asked a while back what he would like and he couldn't think of anything so I said then I will give him ME!  He said "that's all I ever want".  The pics turned out fantastic a great keepsake for when we're old!!!

    My FI is obsessed with birds and grew up having birds as pets most of his childhood. He always spends a long time  around them at pet stores. I'm thinking of getting him a pair of love birds because he has mentioned in the past how much he would like to have some in our home. Previously, I had never really been open to having birds as a pets, so it will be a complete surprise.Wink

    I'm doing the same thing and having a "coffee table book" made for him.
    He's more excited about this than anything I've ever gotten him.

    I got boudoir photo's taken---and chose 20 of the best shots to have put in to a hard-bound album (it turned out great!).

    I also got him a pair of socks to give him the morning of the wedding:
