It is very common nowadays for the ushers or the best man to give the groom a gift on the morning of his wedding day, but what is less common is the bride giving a gift too.
Although it may seem a little redundant, a small token of love can be a really sweet gesture and your groom will be left with something he can cherish forever that reminds him of your special day.
We’ve compiled a list of some lovely gift ideas to hopefully give you a little inspiration!
Buying your groom his favorite cologne or aftershave is a simple gift as you know he will love and appreciate it.
Another great idea is to find a new scent that you think he’ll like and ask him to wear it throughout the ceremony and reception. Doing this means that this scent will always remind the both of you of your wedding day every time you smell it and will take you right back to the moment.
2. Engraved items
An engraved item like cufflinks, a pocket watch or a hip flask is another lovely way to create a lasting memento of the happiest day of your lives.
Another option, similar to engraving, is stitching. You could get him a new tie and get a stitched personal message on the back of it, or even a pair of personalized socks! The options here are endless and you could even stitch it yourself if you have the capability!
Personalized or handmade gifts require a little more effort but they are great as they are unique and have come from the heart.
You could create a scrapbook filled with memories of your time together, a collage compiled of your favorite photos of the two of you, or even something old school like a mixtape (or a Spotify playlist!) of songs that mean something to the both of you.
You can look back and listen to these on the evening of your wedding whilst you reflect on what a great day you’ve had together.
3. Honeymoon items
Most newlyweds choose to jet off on their honeymoon right after the wedding so buying him something special to use on the honeymoon like a nice pair of swimming trunks, a wash bag or some sunglasses is a great and practical idea.
If you want to spend a little more on your gift then a piece of jewelry, a nice watch or other accessories for men are fail-safe options.
If you get something wedding-appropriate like a tie clip or earrings for men, then they could also be worn on your wedding day, which your groom would definitely appreciate as it makes his life easier!
Most men would be happy with a bottle of really good whiskey, or another kind of alcohol that he loves. It could also be used to calm his or the groomsmen’s nerves before the ceremony and used at the celebrations later!
Pick an alcohol with a nice bottle as it could be something you keep on a shelf in your kitchen or house to also serve as a memento of hazy memories of your reception.
