Top 5 Gifts for the Groom

3:20 AM
The groom is often overlooked when it comes to the wedding. Everything seems to be about the bride, and that’s okay, but there’s no reason why he shouldn’t receive something as well.

 Which is your favourite?

If you want to make your groom smile on his wedding day, these five gifts have been picked out by the team at

A Good Knife

This may seem old-fashioned, but there are still a lot of grooms receiving knives for their weddings. They aren’t necessarily designed to be used. For example, you may decide to give the gift of an engraved knife in a smart box. These can be extremely useful for everything from opening wine bottles to making basic repairs when you are on the go.

It’s one of the most masculine of gifts, and one that is always well-received.


Sometimes you need to think about a man’s short-term needs. The groom is likely about to go away on their honeymoon. A good piece of luggage can last a lifetime, so pick out something good.

Try to stay well away from trendy pieces of luggage that are going to go out of fashion. It’s an object that will likely be used once a year and that’s it, so you need something that’s truly timeless.

You may want to consider the groom’s hobbies. A specialist piece of luggage always goes down well. For example, does the groom play golf or does he like to ski?

Cigars and/or Whisky

It’s a traditional gift to give the groom a box of cigars or cigarettes before they enjoy their wedding. But if your groom doesn’t smoke you may want to give them a bottle of good whisky instead. As a general rule of thumb, if it can be bought from the supermarket this is not something that is suitable for a wedding.

Go out of your way to splurge on a good bottle of alcohol.

A Watch

Practical and able to be used immediately, the watch is another classic gift that you can buy any groom for their wedding day. You may even like to match the style of the watch to the style of the wedding. For example, if it’s an outdoor wedding you might want to buy them a watch with a leather wristband.

Think about their personal style and what they are likely to want. Make sure you tell them that if it doesn’t fit you will happily get it resized for them.

Titanium Band

A good piece of jewellery can last for many years and compliment the look of a man. The problem is that you have to pick out something that suit their personal whims. An easy way around this is to pick up a titanium band instead. This is the type of band that can fit absolutely anyone.

It’s masculine, whilst retaining a certain amount of elegance about it.

These five gifts provide the perfect foundation for giving something good to the groom on his wedding day. What is your favourite gift idea?
