    Sounds obvious but perhaps a little boring but how about getting them a crate each of real ales (or their favourite tipple). I'm sure they'd appreciate it!
  • A paint balling or activity day??

    I'm doing mine for virtually nothing... a good picture of me, with a poem I shall write for him in a frame. Simple yet inexpensive. In the end its not about cost - but the meaning.

    I tossed around several ideas before that - including a welsh love spoon, but thought he'd rather I save the money for the honeymoon.

  • Hi Em

    You got him the telegraph how aobut getting him a new shirt with his name and luckly number on it??

    i have done this for H2B aswell as tickets to the match (which will be in my garter) for the both of us to go to the match! I also have the wedding card signed by alan shearer and an autograph picture too

    gem x the cost i ahve paid out is for the shirt and tickets the rest was free of the club!
  • Hi Em

    Ive bought my h2b a signed freddie flintoff picture as he loves cricket - you can pick up something on ebay from his favourite sports personality or team he supports....

    how are the signed pictures?

    Gemgem- how did you get your club to send picture?

    mishel- how can i check the authenticy of ebay ones?

    thanks for suggestions.
  • if he's a smoker how about an engraved zippo??
  • well, em

    i wrote an email to the club and explained our situation and that i wanted something special for him for his wedding day! And they offered me an personalised autograph which i have!! (woohoo)

    And then they sent an email back to me saying if i send in a card that they will get alan shearer to write it out and sign it! as long as i enclose a note to what i want to be written

    What club doe she support???

  • Hi Em

    i'm making him a scrap book/photo album. i've been putting it together since we got engaged. Pics of us two, then 'bits' from where the pic was taken, so if it was taken at a concert, then I've put the tickets on that page too. It takes a bit of time though!

    Paperchase sell really reasonable albums, mine was about £15, £20 for a large one.

    i love ths scrap book album idea, it seems really sweet. the only trouble is we sort of have already done that throughout our relationship. we started a box which i wrote on small cards, special memories to us, just simple things like a meal or even a joke that would cast up memories it was great fun to do and every so often we add to it. but its one of those things that lives in a bottom draw and hardly comeout.

    i did find in TK MAXx really nice cufflinks for wedding day in our wedding colour of apple green, designer ones for a tenner. so that and the letter from man u may just do. he is getting me after all............ !
