Surprise your new spouse with a fun, practical or sexy memento on your honeymoon. This doesn't have to be an expensive or elaborate gift--just something you put a little thought into. Perhaps it's a piece of jewelry she's had her eye on, or something you can enjoy together on your dream vacation.
If you're feeling extra clever or creative (and/or findng yourself with some extra time--ha!--before your wedding), think about bringing along a small gift or writing a simple poem (or haiku if it's easier for you) that you can leave on his or her pillow each evening of your honeymoon.
