Hi lovely brides!!! I’m really struggling what to get my groom for the morning of the wedding. He’s wearing his uniform, so he won’t need cuff links (he just bought some himself anyway that he would use), he always wears his Fitbit and not a watch, he’s not bothered about pens.... I have no idea what to get him!! So first off, do we have to get a groom present for the wedding morning? And second, what are you getting for your groom? Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!
Is there something you do together that you could buy tickets for, say a gig or an event? That way its meaningful to you both and he has something to look forward to as well
No you don't have to buy something. Weddings cost enough haha.
Could you maybe write a letter for him to read? Xx
I got him socks with helicopters on as he Loves helicopters !!
He's getting me, that's more than enough
I’ve got him groom pants and socks, husband survival kit, Lego keyring with his name on, choccie that says MR, cuff links, card, Tottenham footie shirt with husband on. Just got him stuff that he loves really x
You don't have to get him anything. It's not written in a rule book or anything. If you wanted to get him something write him a meaningful letter to open... or leave him a sexy pair of underwear for you both... it doesnt have to be expensive. Something that makes him laugh even like a corny set of socks....something he will enjoy like a private photo of yourself x
Something sentimental? A new wallet? New shoes? If he's got tattoos a lot of places do vouchers.. I'm probably going to get my h2b a tie pin and a tattoo voucher... Good luck! Xx
You don't have to get them anything it's completely up to you. I brought my groom a map of the stars on our wedding night xx
I got mine pants and socks
I second the lovebooks, not that expensive, fun to make and it’s really personal. My husband loved his x
Does he like a tipple as they say maybe an engraved flask might be nice with his favourite tipple in it
What about a hip flask engraved with your names and wedding date?? You don’t have to get him anything x
I got him lots of little presents and wrote messages on them. Things like socks and wrote incase you get cold feet, a pack of mints for a fresh breath for our first kiss as husband and wife, a guide to being a husband book just daft things really x
Socks that say in case you get cold feet you can find lots of small pressies like that on Etsy x
I got mine a nice aftershave to wear, underwear, and a pair of socks (with a tag that said, so you don’t get cold feet)
Hired a campervan to take my family to venue then myself and husband had a drive around the area with champagne 🥂 it was lovely
He doesn't need a present as he's getting the best thing in the world, marrying the love of his life.
If you want to do something special for him, arrive on time for the ceremony, it's a long lonely wait up front
I got him a pair of socks that’s said GROOM on them. I put them in a box with a note that said “just in case you get cold feet. See you at the alter. Love from your bride.” He loved them. I also got him a personalised hip flask. Xxx
I got my Husband a nice watch to wear on the day and got it engraved (though I know you said he didn’t need one) I also had a large personalised note book with our names and date on the front, inside I filled it with photos and little notes about our lives together so far and the plans of making more memories. I got him boxers (nice ones) and had groom put across the bum (you can get these already done but he likes Hugo Boss)
It was my choice to get him gifts, it’s not a tradition and he wasn’t expecting anything, just make it personal if you do want to get/do something for him. I wrote all my immediate family letters to tell them what they meant to me and how thankful I was that they were part of my day. Just go from the heart and you won’t go wrong. Enjoy your day! X
I'd already bought him a hip flask, cuff links etc over the years, but I wanted to give him a small gift on the morning of the wedding. I bought my husband a small compass, it came in a monogrammed box, and was engraved with "so you will always find your way home to me xx" He loved it as he did a lot of travelling before he met me. Wasn't expensive, I think I paid around £40 (also got the "how to be a good husband book online!)
I got bits off eBay , socks, boxers, hankies cigar holder just little silly bits for the day xxx
What about a little silver photo album with photos of your favourite times together. And say under each photo why it was your favourite. And tell him those are the reasons you want to marry him x
I'm making an album of the lead up to the wedding (pictures of us when we chose the venue, flowers etc, swatches etc) including a save the date and invitation I kept by for him. With pages lefy at the back for photos from the wedding day. Then a box from Paperchase with the engagement ring box and other mementos that won't fit in the album and my dad's watch to wear on the day. And I'll pop in a letter and a card. I'll give it to his brother to leave out for Tom on the wedding morning So it's more to build the excitement for the day looking back on our hard work and in the future to look back on the journey to the wedding and creating something we can look back on together with our family. Xx
Am getting mine, socks and pants that groom on them, just something silly
You don’t have to get him anything, but if you’d really like to do something for him, what about writing him a love letter to read before getting ready?
I got my husband an engraved pocket watch x
I did a little grooms box with things in it like socks so he doesn't get cold feet, a penny so I never leave him penniless, chewing gum for a fresh first kiss etc. I also did a bridal boudour photoshoot and put the photos in a little book. Another gift I did for him was "love notes" from around the world, but I had them played on a slideshow during our first dance.
I just bought a tiny love letter from not on the high street it came with a mini magnifying glass, and a couple of other things relevant to the letter was just a little token gift to let him know I was thinking of him the morning of the wedding as I knew he’d be feeling nervous xxx
I saw some monogrammed bags on etsy i like that he can bring his stuff in for the evening.
You could always look into those socks that you can get your face printed on as a joke gift he can wear under his uniform.
Hi we are getting married on 18th August and still no idea what to buy him :)
I didn’t get mine anything traditional just something he wanted. He told me not to bother as he already had the traditional stuff but I knew he wanted a new Man City shirt so I got him that instead. Doesn’t have to be traditional just get him something you know he’ll like.
Make him something like this my love for you stretches as far as ... there are group on FB with people from all over the world on it so you can get all over the world to write your messages 😍
I got mine the traditional engraved silver cufflinks... and a new iPad 🤣
I did mine a box
The box had socks with our wedding date, pants saying property of Mrs Ryland, had a book made, cigars, miniature whiskey, glass, mints and a watch .. made labels that said, so you don’t get cold feet, so everyone knows you’re mine, so you’re not late, something to settle ur nerves, and something to freshen your breath for the first kiss ... he loved it xx
I am making all of the flowers, centre pieces. Basically everything for the wedding. And I made him his own button hole which he loves. That's my gift for my groom
Why does he need another present? He's already getting you!
My husband was in uniform but I got him engraved cufflinks as a keep sake and he kept them in his pocket on the wedding day. X
I got mine a fragrance
Im going to book him into a lodge with a hot tub the night before the wedding then we are going to use it for our wedding night as may be a wait to go on honeymoon
I got my husband a personalised pork pie saying I ️ you 🤣
I bought mine gig tickets to see the band who did the song I walked down the aisle to. Good timing that they scheduled a tour a few months after our wedding!
I'm getting mine his army medals framed
I’ve seen some survival kits with tissues hip flasks a tiny bottle of tipple boxers and socks in. But I got my husband a dog tag necklace with a picture of his late grandad and wrote my own note for the morning xx
I gave mine a card with a nice poem inside, a pocket watch with “don’t be late” on and a packet of love hearts! It doesn’t have to be much just a token!
Husband wore his uniform, I still got him cuff links, socks with the date and pants with name date etc, also got him a card which I wrote him a letter, a shot of rum for his nerves, mints for the first kiss and tissues just in case
They dont need lots of things, it’s a token really x
You don't have to buy your Groom anything but I think it's a nice thing to do. I bought my husband a hip flask and engraved it with 'a tipple to settle your nerves' and I had a bridal boudoir shoot done in the lingerie I would be wearing under my dress. I had a little book made with them in and wrapped them both into a box. I gave it to our Best Man to give to him on the morning and wrote on the tag that it was 'For Your Eyes Only' xx
I did a scrapbook with photos of both of us from babies up to our wedding day and then filled the end with mementos from our relationship- tickets from our first trip abroad, his offer letter from medical school etc x
Give him something personal. I printed off photos, on old style Polaroid, from each year since we met, special memories with captions printed underneath. I also did novelty socks for him and our sons, cuff links etc and the aftershave I love him to wear. He loved the photos best of all though
I didn't get my husband a grooms present for the morning, he got me one which I loved but we never spoke about it so I was shocked and surprised. It's not necessary but a nice idea if there is definitely something worth getting, don't get something just for the sake of it x
You don’t face to get him any thing at all. We decided that we spent a enough on the wedding it’s self with out getting each other a wedding gift. X
I got mine a boudoir shoot album!
I've got mine some aftershave so everytime he wears it, he thinks of our special day.
I didn't get him anything. Didn't even know people did to be honest. I gave him myself, what more could he want . At the speeches he gave me a bride and groom charm for my Pandora.
We decided not to get presents so I wrote a letter for him to open on the morning of our wedding
I'm getting mine a Welsh Lovespoon!
I got mine his fav aftershave and his teams football shirt with groom and 16 on (we married 2016)
We didn't exchange presents on the morning of the wedding. We didn't feel we needed to. Our biggest present to each other was saying I do.
I made a box up with socks that say 'don't get cold feet on them, some whisky for Dutch courage, a embroidered hanky with our date and initials, mints, and book on how to be a good groom. Also a card with a little love note in
I got my husband a survival kit in a can and did a boudoir photo shoot. Sent him one picture a day in the lead up to the wedding
We are exchanging fragrances. Memory is closely associated with smell, so in getting new fragrances and wearing them on our wedding day, when we use them again in the future we will remember our day
Pocket watch? I brought a marvel deadpool one for my husband to be and he adored it! Still wears it on suit worthy occasions x
I did mine a hamper
Socks that said groom. Aftershave. Razors. Love note. Sweets. Deodrant. Cuffs with our date on to wear. Xx
I never even thought about buying my H2B anything ... He's already getting to marry me ... That's gift enough. I don't want to be wasting money where it isn't needed were on a tight budget. He gets the wedding and wedding lingerie/night. That'll do. Don't stress yourself I don't think it's important .
I bought mine aftershave xx
Very sweet Neet Ryland
I didn't get him anything to wear. He likes trains so I got him a custom railway signs with our names, date and wedding location on it
