Gifts for the Groom in your life

The gift exchange between a bride and groom is an optional tradition. I personally find it very moving. Some exchange gifts the day before their wedding and other's the day of, covertly getting their gifts to one another. Whatever time you decide to do it, the decision of what to get can sometimes be the hardest.

What do you get for the man you are about to share the rest of your life with? Some would say, you are his gift. If you and your fiance have decided to exchange gifts, here are some ideas that should fit all price ranges.








For a sharply dressed man, how about these onyx and pearl cuff links. They are antique, dating back to the 1930's. They are made of platinum and 14 ct gold. I found these at http://www.jewelryexpert.com/. The cost: $2175.00














For the technologically savvy man, how about this watch from Fossil. This stainless steel piece has Bluetooth capability and is only $250.00!












A groom who is a sports fan may love this autographed ball from the World Series 2007. Signed by Curt Schilling with the Red Sox, this ball is going for $369.99 at http://www.mlb.com/.





Any sentimental grooms out there? Located here in Hampton Roads, Expressions-Custom Framing by Maura, can work with you to design the frame for your bridal portrait. Imagine the look on your groom's face when he sees the beautiful portrait in such a unique custom made frame layout. Here are a couple of my favs from Maura's gallery on her website. Check her out at http://www.framingbymaura.com/. (Remember though, to all our superstitious brides out there, don't let him see that portrait until after you are married!)




















A free option, yet for most, probably the most meaningful gift of all, would be a poem written from your heart. Putting all of your feelings together surrounding the journey you are both embarking on together will surely make a gift he will cherish for the rest of your lives together.


So whatever you choose, try and consider your groom's personality and you will ultimately come up with a gift that he will treasure for a lifetime! We'd love to know what you plan on for a gift for the man in your life. Leave us a comment and let us know!
