Many people think that it’s just the bride who should be receiving gifts on her wedding day and entirely forget about the groom. While it’s true that the actual event of the wedding has traditionally been a celebration of the bride, it's just as big of an event for the groom. While more thought tends to go into getting something for the bride, below are some gift ideas for the groom on your wedding day that will show him you haven't forgotten about him.
Watches are great gifts to give to the groom on your wedding day because they are so symbolic. Not only does a watch speak to the fact that you will be together until the end of time, but it is also a great accessory piece that typically looks great on most men. Go for something elegant but understated, with a leather strap.
This is one of the most popular wedding day gifts from bride to groom. These are great because they can be engraved with special messages, dates or initials – making for a truly personalized gift. You might also think about filling it with his favourite liquor before giving it to him for an extra personal touch.
If you two are planning a honeymoon immediately after the wedding, you might want to look into getting something that will serve him well while the two of you are travelling. A passport cover, luggage tags, or travel books are all great ways to get him something useful, while building excitement for the trip the two of you are going to take together.
A fun excursion together
The gift you give your groom on his wedding day doesn't have to be something tangible that he can hold in his hands on that same day. It could be a gift certificate for something you two can do together, such as a pair of tickets to a concert or a festival pass.
If you and your groom are not really into getting each other material things, you can always surprise him with his favourite breakfast on the day of your wedding. Small gestures like making him breakfast go a long way. It doesn't need to be gourmet. Try out a new recipe, buy some nice coffee and leave a little note beside the meal – this gesture will show how much you love him.
