Ok, so a brand spanking new wife is a pretty awesome gift for any man but it can be a lovely touch to send a gift to your husband-to-be on the morning of the wedding to let him know you’re thinking of him. Have a look at our gift ideas to surprise your groom, and earn yourself some serious wife points before you’ve even made it up the aisle!
From top, left to right:
Watch: For a traditional gift that you know your groom will love, you can’t go far wrong with a watch! We love everything from the Daniel Wellington range, available from Bogues Jewellers, Omagh.
Bracelet: This leather plaited bracelet available from Bella Mia Boutique, Ballymoney would make a great surprise gift for your groom. The smart leather finish makes this bracelet a great option to wear after the wedding and the clasp could be engraved with your wedding date for a personal touch. (No excuses for forgetting any anniversaries boys!)
Beard Balm: We love this natural beard balm from local suppliers The Beardy Beard Co, Belfast. Crafted using shea butter, cocoa butter and beeswax, this beard balm will keep your groom’s whiskers in check, and make sure he’s looking suitably sleek for the big day.
Cufflinks: A popular choice for brides to surprise their man with on the big day is some stylish cufflinks! They can be worn on the wedding day, and for many other occasions after, making them the perfect gift. These Hugo Boss cufflinks are available from Cruise in Victoria Square, Belfast.
Socks: You can never go wrong with socks! These groom socks are available from Red Groomswear, Cookstown and Belfast.
Hip flask: It’s not often hip flasks and chic are mentioned in the same sentence, but this leather option from Not On The High Street is just that. The shape and leather cladding is discreet and a personalised message will make a great keepsake. This is perfect for any groom who might need a tipple to calm those last minute jitters.
Weekend bag: Heading off on honeymoon and want to surprise your man with some luxury luggage? This Mulberry Clipper is a total classic that he’ll have forever and will remind him of his wedding day every time he uses it.
