I’ll be honest, I did not know that the Bride and Groom gift exchange was a thing until a couple months before the wedding. It didn’t take much to get me on board though. My wife is an amazing gift giver and I always love the chance to give her a thoughtful gift. That’s not why I’m writing this post though. This post is to help make sure you get the best wedding day gifts for your groom.
1. Practical Gift for the Groom: Luggage!
This one carries over from the Bride Gift Guide, and for good reason. What better time to buy luggage than right before your honeymoon. My wife and I got each other luggage sets for our wedding gift exchange and it is incredible having a nice set for trips. At less than $150 with great reviews, this luggage set is the perfect gift for your groom.
2. Budget Friendly Gift: Dopp Kit
A Dopp Kit is a great gift idea for any guy. I have one that I use for every trip we go on, whether it be overnight or a week long trip. If you have a tight budget for your wedding, this best seller is a great way to show your man that you care without breaking the bank.
3. Sentimental Groom Gifts: Cologne or Journal
I’ve heard it said that scent is the sense that is most closely associated with memory. That’s why cologne on your wedding day is such a sweet gift. Every time you spray the cologne you’ll remember your wedding day. If you’re not sure what to get, go with Invictus. It’s a really fresh scent that all guys will love. My wife goes crazy for this stuff.
A journal is another awesome sentimental gift. Write a heartfelt note to your groom on the first page. Every time he opens the journal he’ll remember your great day and how much you love him! Here is a great wedding themed journal you could get.
4. Splurge Gifts: Nintendo Switch and Bose Speaker
If you want to go all out, these are incredible ideas. The Nintendo Switch is the perfect console for gaming with friends. He’ll love hosting guys nights and you will definitely be the coolest wife of your friend group. If you and your groom enjoy gaming together the Switch has plenty of games that can be played together. Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart are great titles that a lot of people can play.
If your man isn’t the gaming type then a Bose speaker or headphones are the way to go. If he likes listening to music in his own little world, get him headphones. If you like blaring it through the house and having wild dance parties, go for the speaker.
5. Dapper Gift Ideas: Watch and Personalized Accessories
I feel naked without my watch. My wife got it for me and it is one of my favorite gifts that I have ever gotten from her. That is saying something because she is an incredible gift giver. A Fossil watch is the perfect blend of style, quality, and affordability. You can’t go wrong with one of these dudes. Another idea would be personalized cuff links or a tie clip. I love the look of cuff links. A custom tie clip and cuff links elevate a suit and if they have his initials on them it will make them mean that much more.
Are you on board yet? Any of these gifts he is going to love because you got them for him, and he loves you! Whether you’re on a budget, wan’t to go big, or give him something heartfelt and personal, you can’t go wrong with any of these wedding day gifts for the groom. Worried about what you’re soon to be will get you? Give him a few hints by sending him our gift guide for the bride.
