I'm doing a gift basket/hamper, some items more expensive than others but at least you can do it as cheap or as expensive as you wanted, can have lots of items or not many.. some items I'm putting in are aftershave, personalised boxers and socks, alcoholic drink, chocolates, cards, lighter, cufflinks etc. X

I’m planning on but I’m not sure what to do yet, I had an idea but it’s very very expensive and my h2b would be extremely but tell me that I was silly spending money on him haha x

I did a DIY gift box, full of goodies, a watch, embroidered hankerchiefs, other odd bobs. The box is now our wedding memories box
Some people do a grooms cake?
I would've liked to hire a VW camper for him for photos but that would've broken the bank for us.

I surprised my hubby by having a Star Wars themed wedding and he had no idea. I named all the tables after species ie Jedi Knights, Wookies etc and had a Star Wars cake topper. Even came back up the aisle to the Imperial March. The look on his face and the guest's was priceless.

I wrote to Alex Ferguson and received a fabulous letter back. I wrappped lots of lovely gifts for him to receive from different people throughout the day & left the letter until the speeches. I asked the best man to open & read it. It went down an absolute treat & guests were commenting/complementing all night!! xx

I have been thinking about this too and was thinking a watch and socks and boxers, cufflinks etc but he is a MOD and I know he would love a scooter, I actually know someone who we hubby has a proper old skool MOD scooter and I'm thinking of getting him a ride on it to the hotel the morning of the wedding and if that's impossible get the fella and his mates to turn up when we have pictures so he can have pictures took on the scooter x

I did, i stayed at the venue night before and he stayed at his mums with his best man. His mum said she had sorted taxis but I'd hired one of his favourite cars to pick him up. Was a good distraction to calm his nerves :) xx
