Since the very start of our relationship my H2B has always been the breadwinner which i initially found difficult especially when it came to buying him pressies.... as obviously it was going to be using his own money...

Then i got creative......

And he has loved everyone and people comment on how unique my gifts are...

Last valentines day i took his fav pint glass and painted it...

He has had painted trains (i pinched his old stock), a cheque book of naughty favours, My diary - he loved that!!

So i guess the message is you don't have to spend anything to give your hubby a lovely pressie on the wedding day...

Cos as we know weddings cost enough as it is....

I intend getting Alan something as a present but can't think of what to get him :( My head is too full of RSVPs, favours tags and gift ribbon to think about much else at the moment...

Just as a quick addition to this thread, how is the present supposed to get to the groom on the morning of the wedding? It's not something I've really thought about until re-reading this topic just now....

Me and H2B aren't going to bother. Mainly because we'll be spending enough money on the wedding.
Plus it's just one more thing to worry about :)

I am paying for him to have a tattoo from a really good local tattooist (not on the morning of the wedding though :msn-wink: ) as he's wanted one for ages. He is having lots of fun trying to decide what to get done. It won't be anything romantic or wedding-related though.

I like the idea which I read elsewhere on here of having something engraved inside his wedding ring as a surprise on the day...a bit more romantic, and no transportation problems as long as the best man doesn't lose the ring.
