10 groom gifts to surprise your man with on your wedding dayGroom 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.

  1. There are boudoir photoshoots on groupon all the time for about £20 for brides on a budget. My best friend did one as a gift for her boyfriend last year and said it was phenomenal and went down a storm apparently

  2. After reading this article, ive just jumped onto ebay and bought him our song on vinyl! I will have it framed so it can be hung on our bedroom wall…he will love it and a cheaper and more romantic idea than the watch I was going to buy him that he would only wear for special occasions (not a watch wearer normally).

  3. I got my husband an omega watch. He’s always wanted one! Got his best man to give it to him on the morning of the wedding with a little note that said “now you have no excuse to be late today…or for the rest of your life!!”
