I want to get a gift for my husband to exchange on our wedding night or honeymoon. I don't want to buy him a pair of boxer shorts or anything like that. I want to get him something meaningful, but fun. Something he'll enjoy right away but that will last for years. Any suggestions?

maybe sterling silver cufflinks to wear on your first date as a married couple? and i would point it out when he puts them on. "now every time you wear these you can remember that you wore them to our first date as mr. and mrs.______" i think that would be cute. and sterling silver can be incredibly resilient, and classy, but also astonishingly inexpensive. that seems like a great idea to me!

Don't over think it.

Buy something sexy to wear for him. Can't go wrong with that.

A skeleton watch. Not with a picture of a skeleton, but the ones where you see the gears and workings inside.

experiences are better than gifts; got to hot tub, spa, massage etc together. go someplace DO something fun.

My husband was a big fan of the "master and commander" book series, which he first read as a teen (there are about 20 books in the series)- I bought him the entire set, plus a biography of the authore. He was thrilled.

I have always thought that socks make a charming gift for before the help with cold feet. But for the wedding night, perhaps a nice watch or other men's jewelry item if you want something lasting. Depending on where you are going for your honeymoon you might want an in-room survival kit with a few beers, bottled water, and some favorite snacks?

Thanks for all your suggestions. Still trying to decide what to go with but you've given me a couple things to think about.

A nice watch, with a personal engraving on the back. A Tag Heuer would be my personal preference. If he's younger, the Formula 1s are a little sportier and might be a good place to start looking.

I bought my husband a dress watch and had our wedding date engraved on the back!

I gave my hubby wireless headphones for the tvs in the LR and BR. Seriously the best gift I ever gave him. I've given him thousands of dollars worth of tools. But he enjoys these because he can watch what he wants without my going nuts listening to "man" shows. These have made our marriage much more peaceful. We married in our 40's, so perhaps I went more for practical than romantic...but it's romantic to have a peaceful marriage :)

a nice tie tack if he likes them or cufflinks if he uses them one of the better items i have recived is a nice tokyo flash watch and maybe get something engraved on the back at a local place.
i only ware it on occasions. if he is not in to watches then, i don't know some thing that he is in to or just something that is close to a one time gift that he can keep around for a long time.

Most anything material you get him will in the long term matter very little. TV's break, tools break, etc. For my Dad last christmas I bought him a pocket watch that had the date my mom introduced him to my brother and I, the date he proposed to my mom and the date they were married and we became a family inscribed on the inside behind a picture of all of us. When he wears it with his suit it always goes in his front pocket to be close to his heart. My mom says she sees him looking at it when he doesn't think anyone is looking. It amazed him that I wrote down all the dates. I knew he was going to be my dad the first time he sat down to play super mario bros (on NES, it was that long ago). Commemorate the important dates. To me my dad's birthday is my favorite day of the year, because that was the day he was born and he's the greatest dad I could ever ask for. Not once have I felt like the "step-son" in their almost 20 years. Give a gift that means something to both of you, that he can look back on in 20 years and remember the first time you guys met, your first kiss, the night of your engagement, the wedding, your first child, etc. etc. These are moments that are only shared between the two of you and should be cherished. Lingerie will get old and thrown away. TV's replaced. But something from the heart will remain until you're both in your 80's sitting on your front porch holding hands as you watch your great grandchildren run around chasing fireflies.

Congrats on your pending wedding. As for a gift for him:
If he likes pocket watches, that may be something you can get him. I think a nice engraved pocket watch may be a gift that would fit the bill. It can be used right away and last for several years. you may be able to find a superman pocket watch (if he is into superman) other options include, batman, the flash and the green lantern. Otherwise a pocket watch is available in a variety of metals. They last for quite some time.

I received an Omega Speedmaster (the moon watch) from my wife and I absolutely love it.

some of these suggestions are just awful! Into superman? what? ms. kelly, i think what you are looking for is something unique for the two of you, search your heart you'll find it no doubt.

How about a body cast made into a nice sculpture or something quirky? That's really personal and unusual.

I agree with Reynolds up there... Some simply awful ideas here. Superman? Cufflinks? A pinky ring? People... these are supposed to be suggestions for an adult Male. The best suggestion in here is the watch with the important dates engraved on it (provided you know the dates of some milestones in your relationship). The reason that is the best suggestion is because (as has already been pointed out) its a gift from the heart.
