If his parents are still living, ask them for ideas about things, activities or places that he loved as a child. Ask his family members for clippings, mementos and photos (that you can copy) of his childhood and family life, then combine them with similar things from your own childhood into a good quality album. After you have documented the past, leave a section empty for the future, your wedding and honeymoon photos, one of your wedding invitations, your children etc. The album will show how the two families have become one larger family. Even better, consult a professional genealogist and have him or her research his and your family trees.

We have been married 25 years, and have 25 to go. I just bought him a wedding ring from James Avery, and I am going to get it engraved.

Or a watch with a picture of a skeleton, because that's awesome :-D

Maybe a pinky ring is a gift from the heart.

I have to agree with Nina! "It's romantic to have a peaceful marriage". Very true. I have done that "wedding day" thing twice. I have to admit, the 2nd time around was a charm. Incredibly peaceful. We didn't overthink a single thing. We wanted fun and fun we had. We wanted those around us relaxed and they were. Now I'm not sure how old you are or if this is your first marriage or not...hopefully it will be your one and only. I had my son who was the ring bearer, bring us bride and groom baseball caps! It made for a really cute picture and it lightened everyone up. I love the ideas some have shared with you! Let us know what you decide! I would have done the watch, but my husband won't wear one.

A watch with your wedding date or just both of your names and the wedding date. Especially if you find one that is a lifetime watch, shows a lifetime commitment. The new eliptical watch that winds with motion, available at Macy's is a wonderful gift for a husband to be. Congrats!

Create something from the heart. Its a priceless time piece. Like a scrapbook from the first day you met till now, a nice watch with something engraved on the back. a special poem written from the heart, framed and wrapped in a gift box. Something that was your fathers, or grandfathers like a piece of jewelry. The week before the wedding form a heart with candles in the backyard, or at the beach, and make it a romantic night with wine and dinner. Take him on a hotair balloon ride, and tell him how much it means to you that your starting a new chapter in your lives together. Make it original and memorable. =-)******CoNgRaTuLaTiOnS~!

watch, and not some chinsy Swatch Watch, Movado, Rolex (Air King, most choice indeed). Can not go wrong with a nice classic watch.

How about something you can personalize with a message, quote, dates, and such. I got a message gift bat from for my fiance for his birthday with his favorite quote engraved on it and he loves it. He sets it on the bookshelf in our home office and his friends always comments on his bat whenever they come to visit.

When is the wedding? Who is having discussions on my (Karen Shelton's) account? Who is getting married? And who is that person getting married to? This is Karen Shelton's Amazon account. I don't have Amazon discussions about ANYTHING. Karen Shelton (Me) is married to Bill Shelton. We have been married for 27 years. We have grown children in college. There is no other family. Who are you people posting on my Amazon account???

I would appreciate you people not having discussions on my account!!!

I am trying to come up with an idea for my soon to be husband on our wedding day. I want to create a fun basket of items for him with a poem or story and have it relate to the items in the basket. An example would be, as we walk through this journey of life and I will place a pair of flip flops in the basket. Does anyone have any suggestions on finding a cute story somewhere out there. I have searched online and cannot seem to find anything.

Tie clip. Stainless Steel Carbon Fiber Diamond Accent Tie Bar If you want, add some matching cuff links. :)
