Wedding Gift For Groom Ideas! Share Your Ideas

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies, 

 

I have been checking off a lot of things on my to-do list lately but one item that keeps coming up is the Grooms Gift the day of the wedding day.  I am starting to write my letter to him but I'm trying to think of a fun gift.  He loves, loves, loves watches so I'm thinking of going that route but I wanted to  hear what you ladies are doing or have done. 

 

I know there are tons of threads but I wanted to hear more recent ideas and maybe inspire some of our newer brides out there! :)

I totally love the watch idea, especially if he really likes them. I still don't know what I could even get Juan so I'm a total loss for ideas :(. I want something that he'll be able to keep but he doesn't like watches.

@TinkerSofi  I like the idea of a watch too, especially because he can wear it with his suit.  He's been kind hinting about a watch he likes right now.  I wanted to get him something even more thoughtful but maybe that's it.  I made him a infinity pendant - maybe I should get him a silver chain so he can finally wear it too.  He'd be so surprised. 


@IzzyDeee  That's totally fun!  What a nice idea.

Gonna put one of the pictures in a frame for the nightstand @@veryvalentine

 

And a watch is a great idea! Especially if he is real into them; you could even get it engraved and everything

I thought about getting Juan some kind of chain because I know he'd wear that. He actually doesn't like rings so chances are he'll end up wearing the ring with the chain.

 

I think a nice watch would be cute because in a way you're "promising him your time from now until forever" :). If Juan liked watches that's totally what I'd get him.

 

I also thought about a boudoir photoshoot so I haven't decided yet.

I have done boudoir photos for my fiance for a previous gift. He loved them but, honestly, the album sits in a closet! There is one framed photo in our bedroom. I feel like they are more for me so 20 years from now I can remember how young I was. Ha.

 

I've also given him custom cufflinks. He is from Jamaica so I got him cufflinks with the coordinates of his hometown engraved on them. He loved them, but he also wears cufflinks.

 

My current idea is to get him a custom made suit as a gift. Not to wear to the wedding, but for him to do when he gets back. A girl I work with's husband has a tailor who comes from Hong Kong 2x per year and sets up shop in a hotel room where guys can go and get measured and pick fabrics and everything. She says they are luxury suits for a more reasonable price. He wears suits to work almost every day and he is fashionable, so I think he would love the experience.

 

That said, we've also talked about not doing gifts at all and spending the money on travel, including our honeymoon we'll plan for the fall. We haven't traveled as much as we would like and we think having those experiences together are important - especially while we are childfree. As I see the wedding expenses pile up sometimes I think this is a good option. Ha :)

@@veryvalentine Derrick loves watches too. He actually jokes around that he'd rather have a "wedding watch" than a wedding ring. Lol So as a wedding gift, I'm getting him a watch. I'm trying to decide which way to present it:

 

1) give it to him before the ceremony with a tag that will either say "see you at 3 pm" our ceremony time or "looking forward to spending every minute of my life with you"

 

Or

 

2) surprise him during the ceremony and present him with both a wedding ring and his wedding watch.

 

What do you guys think?

I like the first idea, only because I like the gifts being a private moment rather than having everyone witness it :). Besides I'll be too much of a nervous wreck on the ceremony to come out of the script hahah.

I got Doug a watch on our way home from Jamaica. We didn't do gifts the day of. There was just so much that had happened right before we left it sort of got forgotten. but I picked up a beautiful Movado for him at duty free in the airport thinking it would be something he would wear but nope. Only wore it for about a month then that was it. He just doesn't wear watches, doesn't really even like to wear them. He received a beautiful gold one for his 35 years service at work and it sits in the box on his dresser collecting dust. I would love to do a gift for him for our renewal with something special engraved on it or in it to let him know that the fact that he stuck with me through all of the hospital stuff, even holding a bucket while I threw up, that it means the world to me. There are a lot of guys that would NOT have stuck around through it all.

 

For someone that loves watches it's a beautiful idea and a good one! And so are the cufflinks for someone that wears them! Great ideas for sure. And the photo shoot is awesome but I'm too old for that! lol You young ladies would be perfect for that kind of thing. The chain is also a good idea. For me though, lol none of it works!! Doug is mr. techie and loves his toys!! And it bugs the heck out of me because every time I get an idea, or think I have an idea for his birthday, or Xmas - he just goes out and buys it himself!

 

So I would also be in the market for any ideas!! I'm getting him a new ring because his wedding ring is so big now that he wears it on his middle finger (no don't go there! lol) We can only have it sized once because it's tungsten so I thought about having a ring engraved but the space is so limited.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
