Do Brides Give Grooms Gifts?
If you’re a bride and you’re wondering, “do brides give grooms gifts?”, the answer is “yes!” and we have some great groom gift ideas for you! Don’t worry - picking a gift for your groom is easy. And hey, it’s only fair since he’s probably getting one for you too! Read on to learn more about the tradition of wedding couples exchanging gifts and to discover some great personalized groom gift options.
Why Are Bride and Groom Gift Exchanges a Thing?
The happy couple is going to receive gifts from their families and wedding guests - so why have any more gifts?
First, it’s just a sweet way to start the wedding day. The bride and groom wedding gift exchange typically happens on the day before or the day of the wedding. A lot of modern couples are spending some quiet time together on wedding mornings before they see each other dressed in their wedding clothes. This is the perfect time to exchange gifts – and kisses!
And second, your bride and groom gifts are likely to be the most sentimental wedding gifts either of you receives. This is especially true if you choose something personalized that they can wear or use every day!
Favorite Gifts for Bridegrooms
Historically speaking, a watch is one of the most popular wedding gifts for grooms, and the watch usually has an engraved message on the back. As lovely as that tradition may be, modern brides are branching out from there and engraving meaningful messages and quotes on all sorts of men’s accessories. Lucky for them, there are more and more personalized wedding gifts available!
Making Groom Gifts Meaningful
What exactly makes an engraved gift “meaningful”? We think an engraving is most meaningful and sentimental when it shows a connection that only those two people share. It can include the couple’s names or initials, a wedding or other anniversary date, a location, or – our favorite – engraved handwriting.
Imagine giving a sentimental (but not sappy!) gift to your groom on the morning of your wedding. Your fiancé is going to love any of these personalized accessories because they come from the heart.
