Surprise! The Groom Gift Guide.

On your wedding day… what will you do for your groom?

  • Engrave his wedding band. On the inside of his band, surprise him with a meaningful message. (Need a way to get it out of his nightstand? Tell him you’re going to get it cleaned.)
  • Get him to wear his heart on his sleeve. Whether they’re formal or fun, a pair of cufflinks can be the finishing touch to his wedding day ensemble.

  • Customize his tie. Before the big day, have something sentimental embroidered on it (as long as it’s not a rental). It could be a date, a phrase, your initials, or your names.
  • Wear away their worries. According to ancient legends, black sapphire can help keep people calm in chaotic situations (you know, like weddings).

  • Give him a sign. Have your bridesmaids hold notes that say, “Just wait until you see her.” While they pose, take a photo. Then, have someone send it to him.
  • Tell him you’ll love him until the end of time. A watch is as practical as it is special. Get it to him while he’s getting ready, and include a note that says, “Don’t be late,” or “See you at [insert time here].”

  • Deliver a love note. When they reach the end of the aisle, have your ring bearer, flower girl, or maid of honor hand him a note. Keep it short and sweet… something like, “I can’t wait to marry you.” Or, if you’d rather write a longer letter, have someone take it to him the morning of the wedding.
  • Get him something he can keep close to his heart. Treat him to a staple necklace or chain he can wear every day.

  • Say “cheers.” With a wonderfully aged whiskey or wine, remind him of Robert Browning’s words: “Grow old with me, the best is yet to be.”
