One of my favorite parts of watching a couple’s wedding video is when they show the bride and the groom opening the gifts they got each other. Don’t get me wrong, I love the vows and the first dance too, but there’s something so sweet about watching them open something their partner selected especially for them on such a momentous occasion.
When He Found Her
If you’re searching for a gift for your groom, read on for seven ideas that are worthy of your first gift as husband and wife.
For the Groom on the Go
Gifting your groom a watch has basically become the standard wedding gift, but the key to keeping this wedding-gift trend fresh is finding a watch unique to him. For example, if your groom is running from time zone to time zone and traveling the world, this watch keeps “dual time,” meaning it has four hands—so no matter where in the world you both are, you can always see where one another is. Swoon!
Does your groom collect something special or significant? Add to the collection with a piece that’s the ultimate wow-factor—and that doesn’t have to mean that it will break the bank. Scouring flea and vintage markets until you find it will only add to the excitement and level of uniqueness when you finally get to share it with him.
Something for the Both of You
Get your groom excited for life after the wedding with lingerie for you and boxer briefs for him. You can’t go wrong with his and hers wrapped together in one box for him to open the morning before you say “I do.” Talk about a surprise!
A Special Sipper
Every guy has their go-to drink: bourbon, whiskey, gin, tequila, you name it! Head to a good liquor store and have them track down an old bottle or vintage he might have always wanted to try. Bonus points if it’s from the year you met or the year he was born!

Switch up the something blue rule and give your groom the good luck with a pair of blue socks and blue shoes that he’ll have for years to come.
If you’re headed right off on your honeymoon, surprise your hubby-to-be with an adventure or special excursion just for him—think a round of golf at a hard-to-get-into course, a massage, or that hike he really wanted to go on (that you might not have initially been psyched about).

Pop A Bottle
Are you both really into wine? Ask your favorite wine shop to recommend a bottle you can open on your ten year anniversary—you’ll need their help ensuring the wine will age appropriately. Gifting him something you can share together ten years down is something you can look forward to together.
