i need your opinions, please!

last night, i did some last-minute shopping for an extra christmas gift for toby (already bought him something "big") and now i'm doubting whether or not i should give it to him for christmas.

i'm not sure if you're familiar with it, but it's a book called how we met. what it is is a book that the people who work for the company (or whatever you wanna call them) put together and all you gotta do is fill some stuff out.

on the front of the book, it will say our names and the date we met or just the year. on the second page, it says "Here's to the rest of our lives". from the year you give them, which will be 2006 for us, throughout the book, the pages will be taken up with headlines from 2006, popular fashion, etc., things that were popular/significant in 2006. then, it'll have our names and the meanings all fancy, and then a section with "our memories" and questions we fill out.

yeah, 2006 was only last year, but 40, 50, 60 years from now, toby and i can look back on it and think of how we went through all of that TOGETHER and how long ago it was. i know it's corny, but i'm corny


so, my question: i told my cousin about it and i told her i might wanna save it for february when we [hopefully] get married and give it to him then, but she says for a gift like that, it should be more special and i should just give it to him as a christmas gift cuz it's a nice idea, but not wedding wow.

what do you think?

thanks for any feedback!!!

I agree with you. Give it to him in Feb. You got him a Christmas gift already, leave it at that.

I think it would be a special wedding gift. If you don't think it's enough you can give something with it but it's a very sweet idea.

I personally think it would be more meaningful if you gave it to him the night before or the night of your wedding. That's sooo cute. Yeah, I think it would definitely mean more then.

I'm with Marisol and Nicole! Definitely wedding gift! Just be warned, those books are hard to keep up with. You have to fill all that stuff out right? I got something like that when Aleda was born 2 1/2 years ago and I'm already behind! LOL!

I think it'd be a very special wedding gift, but on the other hand, weddings are so romantic and over the top that maybe the significance would be lost somewhat? whereas if you give it to him for christmas, it's in a way more special since it stands alone as a romantic gift.

I think it could work for either to be honest, but yeah.. it really depends how many other romantic things you are planning in the wedding or what have you as to whether it would get lost in the crush

i know what you're saying, BUT we're not having a wedding. we're just going to the courthouse to do a quicky, so i think it'll stand out, right?

definately.. if that's the type of wedding you're having then I think it'd be a really nice touch. I mean, if you were having a huge wedding it might detract from the romanticism of the book but since it's much more intimate, I think it's a really nice romantic touch. With that in mind I'd almost definately give it to him for the wedding

(except in real life I am INCAPABLE of keeping gifts. I give them almost as soon as I've bought them, LOL)

That is such a sweet thing to do. Like Rosie said, I think it would work out either way.
