Gifts for the Groom

Weddings seem to focus a lot on the Bride and the Groom gets a little forgotten about, even though it is just as big a day for him. Brides seem to be showered with gifts from the moment that they slip on their engagement ring so it is lovely if they put some thought in to a gift that they can give their fiancé on their wedding day, apart from the boudoir photo shoot pictures of course! Think about how you met, the things that you have shared together and how he likes to spend his free time and go from there. If he is the bookish type you could try and track down a first edition or a particularly nice copy of a favourite book, or one that is signed by the author. If he has a taste for speed, arrange a day driving a classic car or visiting a racing car circuit. The man into music might love that guitar that he has had his eye on but can’t justify buying himself, framed song lyrics, or perhaps two tickets for a gig would be right up his street. There are lots of options for keepsakes too from personalised jewellery and cufflinks to smaller items like a mug he can use every day; you know him best so use your imagination and look for something unusual that will have significance for him, or perhaps relating to a joke that you share. There are companies that can make up bespoke posters and prints with place names that are important to you or that are connected with retro TV shows and movies, so perhaps these would add to a collection that he has. If the man in your life is a foodie there are lots of choices from gin tasting and cheese making to curry night subscriptions, and you won’t even have to find a place to keep these gifts!
