Hi Was going through my mass booklet this morn and realised I had left in the exchange of gifts - O:| feck, feck, feck...!! So what are we supposed to exchange - is it just coins or what is the norm? Thanks in advance :thnk

Heh we are planning on doing the exchange of gifts, my mom has given s her coin my dad gave her to her. It's usually a coin used, can get them in fields, lantz or where ever you got your wedding rings.

Just the coin I'd say. They're a nice keepsake if you get it engraved with your names and the date. It'll make me laugh handing it to my H2B as a symbol of all i possess....that roughly equates to about 5 euro :o0

I was at a wedding where the groom gave the bride a diamond necklace at the exchange of gifts, it was a total surprise to her and seemed like a lovely moment between the 2 of them :lvs I've been threatening to give FH a shoe as a sign of all that I posses :o0
