Wedding Gifts for the Groom

The greatest gift you can give to the groom on your wedding day is yourself, in matrimony. However both the bride and groom often like to buy each other an extra little symbol to serve as a reminder of the day. Just a small token will do as a gesture of appreciation for sharing this day with you and agreeing to spend the rest of their lives with you.

Of course it isn’t just the bride who can give wedding gifts to the groom. The Best Man or father of the groom may also want to give their own special gift to the groom too. So to help you decide what to give, we’ve listed our favourites!

These Personalised Silver Cufflinks make the ideal gift for him to open on the morning of the wedding and then to wear proudly as part of his wedding outfit. On the one side the solid silver cufflinks are smooth and shiny, making a classy suit accessory, whilst on the other side is written a secret inscription from you to him, giving these groom cufflinks a unique twist! The perfect gift from bride to groom.

Present him with the keys to your shared home on this unique and stylish Silver Key Ring – Dog Tag. It’s made from thick silver which is hallmarked and has plenty of room for a unique and personal engraving on the front – perhaps his name and address in case he gets lost!

For a luxury gift item for the groom try these Carrs Diamond and Silver Cufflinks that are modern, contemporary cufflinks with three real diamonds set inside a rectangle of sterling silver. It’s an exquisite gift that just emanates style and class.

There is neither a beginning, nor an end and so in these beautiful knots we are reminded of the infinity of love. It’s a gorgeous and sentimental gift for the groom with a deep and wonderful meaning!

Can you get any more timeless than a classic pocket watch? The humble pocket watch has featured in many mysteries including Doctor Who and the Twilight Zone and as a timepiece it’s much more sophisticated than the modern watch. Would the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland been quite so memorable had he merely been checking his Rolex? This Quartz Pocket Watch features a skeleton mechanical face on a black background for a stunning gift for the groom.

The Engraved Wedding Fob Watch makes a personal and elegant gift. The watch face is traditionally British and the smooth fob can be engraved for the groom with an extra personal message on the reverse for his eyes only!

The pocket watch comes in many designs and this Sterling Silver Pocket Watch in an open face design is truly stunning with a 17 jewel mechanical movement and handsome watch face set in a sterling silver fob which has the option of engraving on the reverse.

Lastly, if you are feeling extravagant then why not splash out on something that can be handed down from generation to generation. The Jean Pierre Skeleton Pocket Watch is the kind of watch that makes family heirlooms. It has a sterling silver hunter case and comes supplied with a chain. The front of the fob is highly decorated around a plain shield that is suitable for engraving his initials and the very special date!
