2. Is your hunk of burning love a sentimental sap?
An engraved watch or pocket watch is the traditional grooms gift, put a fun twist on it and choose one made of wood or custom made by a local artist or jeweler. Have your wedding date or a special note engraved on the watch for an extra nostalgic touch.
3. Do you have a cigar smoker, outdoorsman or smoker on your hands?
How about an engraved zippo lighter that they can use for years to come and pass on as an heirloom? We saw tons of options for custom zippos on the Zippo website and Etsy and pinned a few of them to our pinterest board.
4. A special bottle of their favorite liquor could be a welcomed grooms gift.
Look for something that is aged longer or higher quality than they normally drink and pair it with your wedding date engraved on rocks glasses or a flask. Keep your eye out for a set of glasses that really reflect their taste such as the Star Wars set shared on our pinterest board.
5. Is your sweetie a musician, guitar player or music lover?
How about a custom engraved metal pick? Also for the guitar lover, a custom guitar strap. Soundwave art of your favorite song printed and ready to hang. Did you know that you can have pretty much any sound converted into a sound print? Your song, your vows any sound that has meaning to you can be converted to a visual interpretation. Etsy was amazing for this too! Check out our pinterest board for sources. Both of these are shared on our pinterest board.
6. Do you have a fiancé with their head in the stars?
A print of a star map with a date that is significant to both of you such as the day you met or your wedding date seems cosmically romantic.
7. Are Concerts or Sporting Events your sweeties idea of a good time?
Purchase really great seats to a coveted sporting event or concert that the two of you can enjoy together. Choose a bucket list venue or event for extra points such as Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado or Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
8. How about a special adventure just for them on your honeymoon?
Is their love language gifts or acts of service? This idea will hit all the right spots. Go the extra mile and plan a helicopter ride, scuba lesson or a special excursion tailored to their tastes . Have it all planned out, including snacks and photo ops scheduled so all they have to do is enjoy the day and memories.
9. Do you have a fella with a sense of style or a fiancé who appreciates a bit of pampering?
Every fella should be treated to a straight razor shave at some point. How about a beard shape up or luxury barber experience? If you are local to the Marietta, Ohio area and don’t already know about Mr. Golden Scissors you should definitely make an appointment for your future Mr. They will be treated to a one of a kind barber experience, looking photo ready, full of confidence and fine at the altar.
10. Does your forever wedding date have a passion for photography or adventure?
A fun wedding gift like a GoPro is the perfect fit for your outdoorsmen or adrenaline junky. GoPro’s are tiny, rugged video cameras that can be handle all kinds of adventures. It can even be used underwater. It’s the perfect wedding gift for your groom or bride who loves to document their journey and relive the memories.
