#1 Boudoir photos

If you're game for it, book yourself a boudoir photographer and present the album to your spouse-to be- not only is it a total confidence booster and a celebration of yourself, he'll definitely be more than a little speechless.

#2 A love letter

Amid the barrage of Whatsapp and Telegram messages, it'll probably have been a while since he's received a penned letter. Plus, isn't there something old school and wonderfully romantic about a handwritten letter? Bonus points if you spritz it with a bit of your favourite perfume, then hide it somewhere he can easily find on the wedding morning. 

 

#3 Video message

Or if you're not the type to be shy in front of the camera, pre-record a video that you can send him on the morning of the wedding. This can be a really intimate one of you talking about your relationship and all the reasons why you love him, and can't wait to be married, or you can also include messages from his closest family members and friends. 

 

#4 Monogrammed handkerchief

If your man's the type who carries hankies, getting one stitched with his (or with yours as well) initials or your wedding date won't just be practical, it'll be something he brings everywhere with him, too.

#5 A pre-wedding getaway

Situated just 50 km away from Singapore, Telunas Island is the perfect place for the time-starved couple who wants a quick getaway to disconnect without taking a flight.

If you have a little cash on hand for a splurge after all the wedding expenses, here's something the both of you will enjoy. It can be an overnight yacht trip, a short getaway to a nearby island or even a romantic staycay (these are some of Singapore's top hotels for a romantic escape!). Just skip the wedding planning talk please!

 

#6 Fragrance

MAISON FRANCIS KURKDJIAN Aqua Celestia Forte EDP, 70ml, SGD 320, from ESCENTIALS

This might be a little risky since scent is subjective. But if you know the type of smells he likes, get a fresh new bottle and a whiff of it will remind him of your special day.

 

#7 Cuff links

Personalised rose gold-plated cuff links, $70.40, from www.giftslessordinary.com.

A classic option but one he'll definitely appreciate, especially if he's often in shirts and suits. Engrave with your wedding date to give it a extra personal touch.
