Your groom will probably agree with us when we say you are the best gift he will ever have for the rest of your lives. However, wedding tradition encourages an exchange of gifts between the soon-to-be-married couple. Such thoughtful presents are usually given before the wedding. Else, on the day of the event, right before you and your groom walk down the aisle. Moreover, getting a gift for your groom is not only the perfect way to show your love. It can also be a means of expressing your appreciation for all the wedding planning efforts he has done alongside you!
After the final fitting of your exceptional wedding gown, it is the perfect time to scout for an incredible wedding gift for your groom. There are no rules about its form or how much you should spend. Traditional, sentimental, or practical… All that matters is, it is meaningful and comes from the heart. However, no matter how much you know your fiancé, choosing the perfect gift to give him is not a walk in the park. With a myriad of options to choose from, deciding on one can be such a difficult task. It will be as if you want to give him everything you see!
To make things easier for you, we rounded up five wedding gift ideas your soon-to-be husband will surely love.
1. A Custom-Etched Bottle of Drink
Looking for the perfect wedding gift for a soon-to-be husband who loves to drink? Getting a bottle of your fiancés favourite champagne or whiskey is an excellent way to go! Plus, popping or opening one on your wedding suits the occasion. To make it more special, introduce a personalized twist by having your names and wedding date engraved on the bottle. This will surely make the present more memorable and for keeps. If you want to add more, complement this with a pair of champagne flutes or scotch glasses with the same decoration. Remember, a sip tastes extra special from a glass given with love.
2. A Timepiece
For a groom who always expresses his eagerness to spend the rest of his life with you, a classic watch will heighten his anticipation. Not only can he wear this on your big day, but other significant occasions in your marriage as well. Such a symbolic present is the perfect reminder to consciously spend every special moment with the ones you love. Moreover, it can be a fun way to tell him that, since you are one step closer to your dream life together, he cannot be late for the ceremony!
If your man loves to collect watches, another option is a personalized watch storage case. Let him know that everything is precious and valued in your marriage by offering him a splendidly crafted box. This is an exceptional gift, where he can keep his favourite watches and accessories safe and in one place.
3. A Customized Pocket Knife or Compass
For an outdoorsy and adventurous guy by your side, functional gifts such as a fancy compass or pocket knife will be appreciated. Giving presents such as these is a lovely way to let him know that you can rely on and that you will always find your way back to each other despite the occasional bumps on the road that is life!
4. A Video Camera
For a man who finds delight in documenting moments, a brand new video camera may make his jaw drop. He can try it out for your first adventure as a married couple: the honeymoon! Capture majestic events or simple dates alike such as safari tours or a walk at the beach. You will thank yourselves for having the opportunity to keep and the chance to revisit these moments later on. If both of you are travel bugs who love life under the sea or above great heights, you can always upgrade the gift into an underwater video cam or a drone.
5. Boudoir Photographs
There is no doubt that your future husband is your biggest fan. Hence, why not give him a series of glamour shots that show the most beautiful, shining with confidence, version of you? Such pictures will leave him speechless and in awe!
A collection of timeless boudoir shots will not only serve as a memento of the beauty of the young woman he fell in love with. Having a boudoir session is also a fun way to pamper yourself after all the wedding planning and before walking down the aisle. It is a two-in-one deal!
