Best Gift Ideas for Your Groom-To-Be

Let us help you find the perfect gift by giving you our best gift ideas for your groom-to-be.

Finding the perfect gift for your groom-to-be can be an intimidating task. Let’s be honest, men aren’t always the easiest to shop for – especially when you’re trying to find a gift that expresses your love. 

The exchange of gifts between newlyweds isn’t a long-established tradition.

Generally the bride and groom exchange a present on their wedding day or even in the week leading up to it. Unlike other traditions, there isn’t a set of rules that can guide you on the do’s and don’ts. For instance, how much should you spend on the gift or is it better to choose practicality or something sentimental? It’s up to you, but whatever the choice it should come from the heart. 

There are a plethora of gift suggestions out there. To make it a bit easier we’ve rounded up the best ideas that even the fussiest of grooms will enjoy. 


Watches are a staple accessory that every man should own. It’s a sophisticated addition to his wedding outfit and gives him a reason to never be late. What better occasion than his wedding day to receive a lovely gift from his bride-to-be. Fortunately, there is a vast range of styles and quality of watches on the market, so you don’t have to worry about blowing your budget on this one. 

Make sure to choose a style that he feels comfortable wearing. If need be, take your future hubby shopping with you to choose the best option together so he can find his dream watch. 


2. Engraved Cufflinks

While we’re on the topic of accessories, let’s talk about cufflinks. It’s a small, yet personal touch to your groom’s wedding outfit. A common option is to engrave his initials, but let’s take this gift to the next level. Personalise it by engraving a short and sweet message. You can even have it done in your own handwriting!


3. Boudoir Shoot 

This is a beautiful genre of intimate photography that celebrates a woman’s sensuality and uplifts them in a positive way. It’s a great way to boost your self-confidence before the wedding and give your future hubby a teaser of what’s to come. Compile an album to showcase your favourite shots. Just make sure no one’s around when he opens it… 


4. Cologne 

Gift your partner with a special cologne to wear on the big day. Choosing his fragrance guarantees that your groom-to-be will be smelling fantastic and it’s a good way to boost his confidence. This scent will be a constant reminder of the day you both said, ‘I do’.  


5. Leather Bound Journal 

Is your fiancé someone who enjoys journaling? This is the ultimate gift idea for your beau. Surprise him by writing a love letter on the first few pages of the journal. There’s nothing better than knowing that your partner took the time to express just how much you mean to them. It’s a romantic, priceless gesture that will be cherished for years to come.


6. Leather Wallet
