Brides-to-be out there, we want to give you a heads-up! Before you walk down the aisle to say “I do,” you need to think about getting your groom a gift.
Yup, it’s a long-standing tradition for brides and grooms to exchange gifts on their big day, and although it’s not a prerequisite to tying the knot, we think it gets your wedding day off to a special start.
But what do you get for the man who has everything (after all, he’s about to marry you, isn’t he?).
Well, there are no hard-and-fast rules as to what the gift should be, so you can decide whether it’s something practical or personalized, high-end or budget-friendly.
To help you choose, and keep your stress levels low, we’ve put together a list of the very best groom gift ideas.
From personalized cuff links and guitar picks to grooming kits and pocket knives (and a few fun surprises in between), our gift scouts have included something to suit every taste and budget.
Excited!? We thought so. Let’s get started.
Engraved Personalized Cufflinks
If your guy loves cufflinks, he probably has a couple of pairs already, including a monogrammed set. But these take this classic gift to a whole new level!
These engraved cufflinks include both the groom and bride’s initials, the date of your wedding, as well as the GPS coordinates of your wedding location!
Available in rose gold, yellow gold, silver, and black, there’s a pair for every possible color palette.
And then there’s these! Your soul-mate will literally be wearing his heart on his sleeve (okay, cuff) with cufflinks that feature a personalized message from you, in your handwriting. How awesome is that?
Baseball Bottle Opener Made From a Real Baseball
Here’s a little something for the baseball fan: a bottle opener made from a real leather baseball!
The magnetic opener sticks to any metal surface, so there’s no chance of losing your gift, and it catches the cap of your favorite brewski.
Practical and personal, this rather cool little bottle opener combines your guy’s greatest loves – you, baseball, and beer!
Wedding Embroidered Handkerchief
We love this embroidered W&F Gift Something Blue handkerchief.
Made from natural cotton and scalloped edges, this special little keepsake is funny, sweet, and sentimental. A special reminder of the love (and laughter) you share as a couple.
Wallet with Money Clip Credit Card Holder
Another lovely gift idea for a groom-to-be is a new wallet.
We like this one that includes a money clip and a bifold credit cardholder.
There’s a handy little notch on the outside that allows easy access to cards.
Plus, to protect against data theft by RFID scanners, smart-tech blocks the infamous 13.56 MHz band.
Personalized Wood Guitar Pick with Guitar Shaped Case
If your man’s a musician or a music lover, you can’t go wrong with this personalized wood guitar pick.
Beautifully presented in a guitar-shaped case, you have the option to personalize it with the groom’s name, his initials, your wedding date, or a personal message.
Another winner in the unique and thoughtful gifts category, this item can be used, displayed in a collection, or stored safely away in a memory box.
MANSCAPED™ Crop Essentials Male Care Hygiene Bundle
For the man who likes to look groomed all over, you can’t go wrong with this MANSCAPED™ Crop Essentials Hygiene Bundle.
The one-of-a-kind care kit includes:
A Crop Cleanser™
Invigorating Body Wash
Moisturizing Ball Deodorant
Disposable shaving mats.
Personalized Milestone Cigar Labels
These personalized milestone cigar labels are fun and sentimental, and a great way for the groom to celebrate new milestones as a hubby.
The set of eight cigar labels commemorates special moments such as ‘first night as Mr & Mrs’, a new promotion, first anniversary, new home, and new baby, to name a few.
Just a quick PSA – it doesn’t include the cigars, so you’ll also need to stock up on these!
Personalized Drink Flask
You can’t go wrong with a gorgeous personalized drink flask.
Available in various finishes, including wood, cork, or vegan leather, you have the option of engraving it with your future hubby’s initials, his name, or your wedding date.
If you’re feeling really generous, you could even gift his groomsmen with their very own drink flask (did someone say brownie points?).
Vegan Leather Reversible Belt
While not necessarily the most glamorous of gifts, this one’s certainly practical. We think your groom will appreciate a vegan leather reversible belt.
Made out of water-resistant cork with a silver brass buckle, it’s brown on one side and black on the other.
What we didn’t mention, however, is that you have the option of adding your own personal touch with the groom’s initials or a message.
FUNATIC Look At Me Gettin’ All Married & Shit Crew Socks
It’s a fact – some men are just socks and jocks kinda guys. If this sounds like yours, then this is a must-have gift.
Funky and fun, these quality crew socks read “Look at me Gettin’ All Married & Shit.
Best of all, this gift won’t break the bank, which is an important consideration given the cost of weddings nowadays!
Personalized Pocket Knife with LED
This is a great practical pocket knife, complete with an LED light.
It includes a seat belt cutter, bottle opener, glass breaker, 1/3 serrated blade, fire starter, liner lock, pocket clip, and it’s presented in a beautiful gift box.
For a more personalized touch, you can add your very own love note in a font of your choice. It’s different, practical, and a gift that’ll last a lifetime.
Laser-Etched Photo Metal Wallet Card
You don’t have to spend a small fortune to let your guy know just how much he means to you. Just take a look at this laser-etched photo metal wallet card.
The forever-love note includes a photo of the two of you on the front and a special message engraved on the back.
There are a wide variety of fonts to choose from, or if you prefer, you can have your message etched in your handwriting.
Gift it on its own, or include it in the wallet you’re giving him!
Groom Mate Platinum XL Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer
Okay, so you’re not going to win any brownie points in the sentimental department, but as far as practicality goes, you’ll score a perfect 10.
A must-have item in any man’s grooming arsenal is a good-quality nose and ear hair trimmer.
This is one of our personal favorites because it’s made out of stainless steel, which means it’s rust and corrosion-proof, it doesn’t run on batteries, and best of all, it comes with a lifetime warranty!
Engraved Wood Key or Ring Rectangle Tray
Handmade from genuine walnut wood, this engraved rectangle tray can be used to hold keys, jewelry, or any other special trinkets.
There are various designs to choose from, including initials, images, and messages – it’s completely up to you!
DIY Whisky Infusion Kit
This DIY whisky infusion kit creates an authentic whisky flavor for any neutral-tasting alcoholic drink.
Your groom can create his own unique flavored whisky for himself, friends, or even to commemorate special moments as a new hubby.
The kit includes 12 different wood chips and spices, labels, recipes, two glass prep bottles, and six stainless steel ice cubes.
Groom Personalized Jocks and Socks
If you’re on a tight budget (and who isn’t with a cost of a wedding nowadays) then we have the perfect gift for your groom.
He’ll love this personalized “Property of…” set of jocks and socks.
Dress socks are available in navy blue and black, while the regular socks come in a choice of black, white, ankle, crew, or no-show. Underwear colors include sports gray, black, or charcoal.
Thoughtful and budget-friendly, this gift will definitely put a smile on your groom’s face.
Fossil Men’s Minimalist Slim Casual Quartz Watch
Give your groom the gift of time…and make sure he’s not late to the ceremony with this gorgeous Fossil Men’s Minimalist Stainless Steel Slim Casual Quartz Watch.
Combining vintage inspiration with modern design, it’ll finish off the groom’s look perfectly on the big day, and can be worn for years to come.
Although a personalization service isn’t available on Amazon, you can have a message inscribed on the back at a Fossil store.
Fancy Getting Married Card
Some gifts are priceless, while not costing a small fortune. Let your husband-to-be know just how much he means to you with this beautifully handcrafted ‘Fancy Getting Married Later’ wedding day card.
You have the option of writing your own message inside the card, or you can include the wording in your order.
Deliver it by hand or have it sent it directly to your groom on the day of the wedding.
Customized Liquor Bottle Labels
Brides usually celebrate the big day with a glass of champagne, while grooms toast with a glass of their favorite bourbon or whisky.
Add an extra special little something with these customized bottle labels. The label includes the groom’s name, date and day of the week, location of your wedding, and alcohol percentage.
Wine, beer, or any other alcoholic drink label options are available too.

Handcrafted with care, we love this personalized engraved bangle cuff!
You have the option to engrave the outside of the bangle or leave a special message on the inside for your groom’s eyes only.
Think wedding date, the day you met, a quote that means a lot to him, or better yet, your nickname for him!
Groom Gift Box
This ready-to-go gift box is such a great idea for the groom who has everything.
A shot glass
Tissues with a note that reads “Tissues for your tears or mine”
Chocolates with a “Something sweet until we meet” tag
An alcohol label that says “Alcohol to calm your nerves”
A pair of black dress socks with the note “For my handsome Groom in case you get cold feet”

The sweet little bundle is available in a black or white gift box, but be aware, the alcohol isn’t included.
