If you want to find the perfect groom gift to surprise your man with on your wedding day, there are personalised and thoughtful groom’s gifts to suit every budget. So, choose from our list of the best groom gifts below and it’s sure to be a winner.
Groom Gifts to Surprise Your Man With on Your Wedding Day
Seeing as you’ll be wearing your beautiful new dress, and likely new jewellery and shoes, it’s only fair that your groom gets a little something special on the wedding day – apart from the gift of marrying you, of course!
Why not buy something that reflects his hobbies? If he’s mad about football, why not buy him a season ticket to watch his favourite team play?
If he loves a certain band, buy him tickets to see their live concert. It may seem obvious, but these touches will show your husband-to-be just how much he means to you.
Your man will most likely be feeling a little jittery before the ceremony, so why not send him a bottle of whiskey and a box of cigars to share with his groomsmen and to calm his nerves?
Whatever you send, accompany it with a handwritten letter telling him how much you can’t wait to see him. Spritz a little of your signature scent on the paper and he’ll be feeling romantic in no time.
Best Gifts to Give Your Groom on Your Wedding Day
The big day is fast approaching, but what do you get the man who has everything? – he is marrying you, after all. No matter his style or taste, we’ve done the searching to help you find the best gifts to give your groom on your wedding day…
Wedding day Scent
We do love a wedding day scent, one that will spark nostalgia with each spritz. Give the gift of a luxurious scent to ensure he is a scent to behold.
We asked Paola Paganini, Product Development & Innovation Direction at Acqua di Parma how to choose the perfect wedding day cologne,
“I always feel a timeless fragrance is a good choice. Something classy, fresh and citrussy – not too overpowering – but memorable & full of character,” says Paola Paganini.
Acqua di Parma Colonia Eau de Cologne, £102
This classic scent from Acqua di Parma is a perfect wedding day fragrance. A subtle blend of sophisticated scents suitable for day-to-night wedding celebrations. Men love a new smell as much as we do so this is a lovely gift for the groom he can wear on the day.
Luxury Leather Goods
Good quality leather just gets better with age. By gifting your partner some supple leather items, you can watch to see who withstands the test of time better!
Mulberry Heritage Weekender, £1,150
We’re sure you won’t need to give your husband-to-be any more reason to be excited about your honeymoon, but gift him this bag and you’ll send his excitement over the edge.
Tom Ford Full-Grain Leather Card Holder, £220
A slick but minimal card holder is perfect for the man in your life who isn’t fond of carrying cash or bulky pockets. This Tom Ford piece is a classic, made of fine, luxurious leather.
A Luxury Timepiece
When it comes to buying the groom gifts, there is nothing better than a shiny new watch. It’s a luxurious and thoughtful gift and a fantastic token to mark your special day.
Rolex Submariner, £5,360
A cult classic and Rolex’s best selling watch all round. Whilst it’s a significantly higher price mark, it’s sure to go down well. We love how this is a watch for everyone so if you’re unsure on his taste, you know this is a safe bet.
TAG Heuer Carrera Automatic Men’s Watch, £2,050
We particularly love this Tag Carrera watch as it’s a classic, clean-cut style that’s sure to withstand the test of time (excuse the pun). The metal strap and dark face are sophisticated simplicity and we’re sure your groom would agree.
Daniel Wellington Men’s Quartz Watch, £107.24
If you want something traditional that you know your groom will love, then you can’t go far wrong with this stylish watch.
For the more modern groom, a wristwatch is a perfect gift for the morning of the wedding. Attach a note with the time of the ceremony (along the lines of ‘See you at 1 pm!’) for a cute personal touch.

Baume & Mercier Classima 18ct Rose Gold Men’s Watch- £3,350
Simplify things even further with this Baume & Mercier watch, which would make a fantastic gift. The leather strap and rose gold face combined create a handsome and classy watch fitting for a gentleman. Plus, who wouldn’t love the visible mechanism on the back?
Your groom will be getting ready with his groomsmen whilst you’re occupied with your bridesmaids. Why not send him a gift he can share on your wedding day?
Dom Perignon Vintage, £150
Who doesn’t love a bit of fancy pop? Dom is the ultimate in luxury champagne and we’re sure your husband-to-be will enjoy popping the cork on this one!
Johnnie Walker Blue Label, £125
A whisky tipple does have an air of sophistication around it. With this premium grade Johnnie Walker you’ll be enabling the boy’s club scene which could quite likely follow, but if he can’t on his wedding day- when can he?
Personalised and Engraved Hip Flask, £39
A hip flask is another traditional groom’s gift – we particularly like this modern version from David-Louise Designs. You can engrave it with your groom’s name and a personal message – wrap it with a bottle of your man’s favourite spirit for a gift he’ll cherish.
