If you’re looking for a way to treat your male wedding party members ahead of your big day, you can’t go wrong with these amazing gift ideas.
The Best Man is a key player at the wedding so he deserves a special gift. Technology is great but it’s outdated quickly so something that lasts as a memento is better. Get him a case of wine or a special bottle of whiskey then have a glass or glasses specially engraved for him or a corkscrew.
Fancy handing over some of the cooking responsibilities to your man once you’re married? Then book him onto a cookery course. Put him in charge of the Sunday roast or at least make sure that he can fend for himself if you have to go away for a few days. There are plenty on offer – from a day of basics to a weekend specialising in different cuisines. Watching Masterchef together will never be the same again.
What about a magazine subscription for the ushers? It really is a gift that keeps on giving all year round. We’re thinking titles like GQ, Top Gear, Esquire or Wired.
For your pageboy, why not give him a pair of his very own cufflinks? Very grown up and essential if he’s going to be wearing a formal shirt with cuffs. Rather than a gift he’ll grow out of, he’ll be able to keep them forever as a memento of his big role on your big day. £8.99 from the Wedding Ideas shop.
These sterling silver collar stiffeners are a beautiful memento for your wedding day. They can be hand engraved with a personal message and are something to keep forever and come in a beautiful presentation box. £79 from Not On The High Street.
Land Rover experience
Is your guy a bit of a petrolhead? Why not book him a Land Rover experience day? He’ll learn to handle off-road terrain and hone his driving skills whether it’s through snowdrifts, sand dunes, riverbeds or moorland. If he watches Top Gear and sighs then this is the perfect gift for him. You can also book a night driving experience. Vehicle choices include the elegant new Evoque, classic Defender, Freelander or Discovery.
With a bit of research and digging you can find out what the best man and groomsmen’s favourite aftershaves are (suggest you ask the wife or girlfriend). Being presented with a bottle of a favourite scent shows a great deal of thought. The Perfume Shop has a good selection and offers frequent discounts on top scents.
