    I just purchased White Stripes Tix for my FH & I. Weird gift, I know, but it was a toss up between that or golf clubs.

    The first gift I ever gave B was a cheesy little keychain with a compass on it. He was off to do a 200 mile team relay race across New Hampshire and needed to crash at my apartment for one night after the race while I was going to be out of town. I left him my keys on the keychain with a little note saying something about not getting lost.

    Later on a he hit a bit of a rough patch and we didn't see eachother for a month. I wrote him a letter alluding to the fact that he knew how to find me when the time was right.

    On our wedding day I gave him a beautiful compass engraved with his intitals and wedding date. The letter said something about how from now on we would find our way together... I also alluded to him not getting lost on his way to the altar.

    It's certainly not an item that he'll probably use, but a nice token I thought. He was actually pretty surprised as said he didn't know about giving one another wedding gifts. He got me a beautiful silver bracelet on our honeymoon though.

    You'll think of something... and if you don't, don't worry about it. You are giving him YOU (the whole kit and kaboodle) after all!

    I got my DH two framed night sky pictures from www.indigonight.com. They show what the night sky looked like the night we first met and the night we married. He loved them and now we are thinking about getting one for the night our first child is born in October.

    I'm making an album of Paul's life up until we started dating. It's a bit time consuming however, and I am able to make in without Paul knowing as he's not here!

    If you like the night sky idea, Sarah, Mars will be in clear view on your wedding day (won't be like this again for another 60 000 years). That's something special!

    I bought my DH some beautiful Mother of Pearl Cufflinks. (The Mother of Pearl was inset in a pattern, and the tones were blue. They are gorgeous!) I told him that he had better wear something blue as well... he loved them!
