8 Gifts to Give Your Groom the Morning of Your Wedding
Surprise your fiancé with a thoughtful pre-wedding present.
Most brides experience adrenaline-pumping excitement and stomach-twinging anxiety before walking down the aisle. With all the hustle and bustle of the big day, it's easy to forget that your groom is probably feeling the same way. Ease your fiancé's nerves and reassure him of your undying love with a thoughtful present on the morning of the wedding. Here are eight cute and creative gift ideas to show your future husband just how excited you are to become his wife.
When it comes to sentimental gift ideas, there's nothing better than a handwritten note. Reminisce about happy moments, describe your favorite things about your partner, and share your excitement for married life. Your fiancé will love the thoughtfulness of the letter, and he'll enter the ceremony with no doubts about your affection.
Take your groom down memory lane by compiling relics from your dating years into a DIY scrapbook. Incorporate any meaningful items from your time together, like love letters, photos, and concert tickets. Both of you will treasure the scrapbook for years to come. Plus, you can continue adding important mementos for many years to come.
For a traditional groom's gift, opt for some high-quality cuff links. Your guy will don his new accessory during the ceremony and reception, and he'll be able to use them for future formal events. Consider customizing the cuff links with an engraving, like his initials or your wedding date, for a touch of personal charm.
Gift your groom an accessory he'll wear nearly every day: a wristwatch. After you've combed through the countless options on the market to choose the perfect watch for him, pen a cheeky note about your ceremony time ("Counting down the minutes until 4 P.M."). You can also engrave the back of the watch with your wedding date, his initials, or even a phrase from your vows.
Whether your groom has a creative streak or you're trying to decorate a new home, you can't go wrong with a nice piece of artwork. Purchase a frame and put something special inside, like a framed photo from a recent vacation or lyrics to your first dance song.
A nice-smelling cologne can boost any groom's confidence. Gift him a bottle of his favorite scent, or choose a new fragrance you know he'll love. The cologne will last for months after the wedding, and every spritz will trigger memories of your big day.
Get your groom ready for your honeymoon by surprising him with vacation accessories. If you're headed to Hawaii, pick up a nice pair of sunglasses or splurge on a snorkeling excursion. Embarking on a ski trip instead? Your man would appreciate warm gloves, a cozy scarf, or a waterproof ski jacket.
Groom's Survival Kit
You probably want to spoil your husband-to-be, so choosing one perfect gift can be tough. Instead, put together a groom's survival kit with a handful of wedding necessities. Some options include mints, tiny bottles of liquor, tasty snacks, sunglasses (if the ceremony is outdoors), and a travel-sized bottle of cologne.
