J and I plan on exchanging small gifts the morning of the wedding. We agreed on nothing super expensive, just a small meaningful present. Right away, I knew I wanted to get Jake cufflinks as his present. Not super original, but he's very excited about his wedding shirt having french cuffs, so I thought cufflinks would be perfect. I've been searching for the right ones and I think I've finally found them!
Barracuda fish cufflinks! Jake is OBSESSED with fishing - he would go every day if he could. He and his friends go down to North Carolina and Florida for fishing trips several times a year. A few years ago, he was in Barbados and went out on a charter boat and they caught a ton of barracudas. He said it's his favorite fish to catch because it puts up a good fight. So I thought these would be great and remind him of that trip. I had our wedding date engraved on the back (on the cuff part that goes through the shirt) so he will always remember them as his wedding cufflinks.
We have several "fish" themed items in our wedding - our table numbers are names of fish that J has caught and a few other fishy details are getting added in (some of which are a surprise to Jake). So I think the fish cufflinks will be fun and be a good finishing touch on his wedding day outfit!
Did anyone else exchange gifts with their grooms? I want to hear what everyone else gave and received!
P.S. - I'm still holding out for a new monogrammed ring!!
