One of the sweetest parts of watching a couple’s wedding video is when they show the bride and the groom opening the gifts they got each other. I love watching the vows and the first dance too, but there’s something so sweet about watching them open something their partner selected just for them on their big day. If you’re searching for groom gifts, read on for five ideas that are worthy of your first present as husband and wife. What are you gifting your groom?
Gifting your groom a watch has become almost a wedding tradition. It’s actually the most popular out of all the groom gifts! It’s timeless and something he will always have and treasure. But to keep this tradition alive and well, find a watch that is uniquely him, and one that will stand out in his collection. A special occasion watch he can wear to future events you attend together. Bonus – he’s sure to be on time for all your date nights! And if watch’s aren’t his thing, if he collects baseball cards, cuff links or something else, find a special addition to add to his collection. This doesn’t have to mean you have to break the bank. Scour flea and vintage markets until you find the perfect one.
SOMETHING FOR THE TWO OF YOU
Get your groom excited for life after the wedding with lingerie for you and boxer briefs for him. You can’t go wrong with his and hers wrapped together in one box for him to open the morning before you say “I do.” And perfect to bring on your honeymoon!
A SPECIAL SIPPER
Every guy has their go-to drink: bourbon, whiskey, gin, tequila, you name it! Head to a good liquor store and have them track down an old bottle or vintage he might have always wanted to try. Bonus points if it’s from the year you met or the year he was born!
A HONEYMOON SURPRISE
If you’re headed right off on your honeymoon, surprise your hubby-to-be with a hotel suite upgrade, an adventure or special excursion just for him—think a round of golf at a hard-to-get-into course, a massage, or that hike he really wanted to go on. He’ll love that you took the imitative to plan what you know he’d truly love and in turn will make your honeymoon that much more special.
CREATE AN ANNIVERSARY PRESENT
Today will one day be your ten year anniversary. If you are both really into wine, ask your favorite wine shop to recommend a bottle you can open on your ten year anniversary—you’ll need guidance to ensure the wine will age appropriately. Gifting him something you can share together ten years down the road is something you can look forward to together and cherish on that milestone.
