Most couples like to exchange a special gift on their wedding day, and like most brides, you will want to give your groom something that not only shows how much he means to you, but something he will be able to treasure or remember for many years to come. So although you may be in the middle of a huge wedding planning operation, try to find a little quiet time to reflect upon the right gift for your husband-to-be.
Here are a few gifts for grooms ideas which you might find helpful…
Gifts For Grooms
For gift ideas that will put them in the driving seat check out different driving gift experiences. Wow your groom with a thrilling and challenging Ferrari or Porsche driving gift or quip them with the skills of champion rally drivers in a fast and furious Rally Driving experience.
If you feel he’d like to take to the air, why not book a flying lesson! Imagine his face as he feels the adrenalin rush and takes the controls of a light plane during his lesson, or experiences the total tranquillity of soaring and circling on the thermals, drifting silently on the wind in a Gliding Lesson.
First Edition Book
If your groom is an avid reader, then what better gift than a first edition copy of a book by his favourite author. Or better still, a signed copy. It’s often surprising what little treasures can be found in antique markets and secondhand book shops.
Do look for reputable sellers though who are possibly members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association (ABA), the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) or the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association (PBFA).
A Keepsake Watch
It goes without saying that one of the most traditional and popular gifts a bride can give her groom on their wedding day is a keepsake watch. It’s something that is not only practical but will also become an heirloom which can be passed down to any children that may come along in the future.
The watch can be engraved with your names or initials, and the date of the marriage, and possibly a personal message of love.
Shop with a reputable jeweller such as Market Cross Jewellers. Since the first store opened in 1980, Market Cross Jewellers has grown to be recognised as one of the biggest independent Jewellers in the UK with 12 stores across the North East of England.
They have a fantastic choice and stock everything from high-end watch and jewellery brands such as Breitling and Gucci to more collectable gifts too, so you could even purchase your bridesmaids gifts as well!
Whether you’re having a full blown honeymoon abroad, or a luxurious mini moon in the UK, why not give your husband-to-be a gift he can use on your honeymoon? A pair of designer sunglasses would work for a beach honeymoon or a ski break, and luxurious toiletries in a leather washbag will always come in useful for a mini moon.
If you are considering one of the above gifts, or perhaps have another idea, please let us know as we’d love to hear from you! (We promise not to tell anyone!)
