  • I would get them a gift card of some kind or the money you would have spent on a present.

  • Pre-marital counseling?
    Okay, seriously, I guess if you feel you must give a gift, a gift card would do.

  • I might take a bottle of wine or a cool wine stopper. Anything consumable is a nice gift. I took a box of nice chocolates to the last wedding celebration I attended because I knew the couple didn't really need anything. Two tickets to a fun event or concert or a gift certificate for a local restaurant might also be nice. If he is your friend and you want him to be happy this time around treat it as the celebration it is intended to be; they already have enough stacked against them that they don't need their geusts to be snotty about it as some are suggesting. In my opinion, if you can't be happy and generouis in spirit you shouldn't go.

  • I have a neighbor like this, his third wife and him have been happily married for over ten years now, but the way they got there was a tough series of roads they both took to find that perfect match.

    I have little to no suggestions aside from out right asking what kind of things he'd like, or if they need if anything. There are times where you can be with a person for years, and still not have everything, also they could both have differing taste but like the same stores to buy things from, so finding out what they both enjoy and would want/need might be best, if you don't feel comfortable with that then money/gift cards.
