Guests aren’t the only ones giving gifts on the wedding day! The old tradition of couples exchanging presents pre-ceremony is back and happening in a big way. Think of it as the zero anniversary present (but there are no rules or traditions like paper or gold for this one!). But this isn’t just any gift–your wedding is a once in a lifetime event. Let your choice represent the importance of the day while speaking to your fiance’s style and personality. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite ideas that you can buy right now. Oh and don’t forget to include a “I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together” note for extra points!

For something fun you know they’ll get a lot of use out of, opt for the hottest new e-reader or a tablet where they can collect favorite reads. If you want something that can easily become an heirloom, a first edition of their beloved novel is the way to go. Editor’s Note: If you go the first edition route you’ll need to do plenty of research and use a trustworthy book dealer to make sure you’re getting a book that is not only legitimate, but in good condition too.

Whether their favorite vice is whisky or wine you can easily personalize a special bottle. Save it for sipping on another celebratory occasion or milestone like your 5th anniversary or the birth of your first child, or pop it after the honeymoon.
If They Love…Staying Organized
Now that you’re going to both be wearing rings forever, you’ll need a pretty place to keep them safe while you’re digging in the garden or traveling abroad. Adding personalization like a monogram or inscription will make the box a sweet reminder of your wedding day every time you reach for your watch.
