Wedding venue? Check! Guest list? Check! Wedding attires? Check! Groomsmen and bridesmaids? Check! Everything else? Check! There's just one more thing you need to prepare: your SO's wedding present.
You don't need to get expensive gifts to make it special. You can make a handmade present or personalize an otherwise ordinary item. To help you decide, here are ten gift ideas for your significant other on your wedding day.
Gifts for the Bride
A Keepsake Box
Memories are some of the greatest treasures in the world. On your wedding day, give your SO a keepsake box where she can store souvenirs for the most memorable moments in your lives. Get an ornate keepsake at antique stores, or shop online. If you're handy with construction tools, make your gift more personal with a DIY keepsake box.
A Handwritten Letter
An oldie but a good one at that, a handwritten letter is guaranteed to make her tear up in joy. It doesn't cost much (unless you're writing on a thirteen-thousand-dollar ancient paper with the world's fanciest pens) and requires very little preparation. Most of all, it's completely heartfelt, something that she will surely appreciate.
Your touching letter may be etched in her mind forever, but unfortunately, it won't be the same on the paper. Time and exposure to heat and air can damage and deteriorate the materials. That's why you should use acid-free paper with archival properties, like cotton paper. It's used by many institutions for important text and documents for it's long shelf life.
Yes, you've given her an engagement ring, and she'll soon be wearing a wedding ring. But you should know that diamonds are a girl's best friend. Nothing beats a gemstone considered as the hardest naturally occurring mineral on earth when it comes to sentimentality.
For one, it will last forever (or at least for a very, very long time). If that's not enough, diamonds also symbolize a deep, everlasting love.
There's nothing that says "I love you always" more than a piece of diamond jewelry can, like a delicate tennis bracelet or a gem-studded necklace.
A Quirky Pajama Set
To offset all the emotional moments, get something to make her laugh, like a cute, quirky pajama set. There are lots of options to choose from. Printed silk pajamas are perfect for lounging in bed all day and binge-watching Netflix shows.
If she's a serial blanket-hogger, get her a pair of warn fleece pajamas for chilly days and nights. Get one in animal prints for optimum silliness.
You can also get a matching pair of animal onesies and do a lovey-dovey photoshoot that will make all your single friends jealous.
A Honeymoon Surprise
One of the best gifts a groom can give his bride is an unforgettable honeymoon experience. Plan your honeymoon ahead of time (maybe as soon as she says yes). If you're going abroad, research beautiful honeymoon destinations and romantic spots in your chosen country.
Fill your itinerary with interesting experiences you can do as a couple, but remember to set aside time to relax and just be together.
Gifts for the Groom
You can never go wrong with a watch as a present. It's a versatile accessory that anyone can wear with different outfits. A watch blends style with functionality, making it perfect for both casual and professional looks. And unlike other wearable pieces, a watch can be worn throughout the seasons, wherever you may go (probably except when you're doing diving).
Socks are perfect for a fun and functional gift. You can get your partner plain socks for a professional look and some pattered and printed pairs for a splash of color and fun. There are a variety of materials to choose from. Wool socks are excellent for keeping the feet warm on cold months, while polyester socks are ideal for active days.
A Fancy Shaving Set
A wedding present is your chance to treat your man to something fancy (and return the favor for the memorable proposal). For the partner who prefers a clean-shaven face, get him the best shaving kit you can afford. The kit should contain a razor, a shaving brush, a lathering product, and aftershave, and a kit holder.
Snoop around his bathroom, and take pictures of the products he uses. There are many different kinds of shaving tools and products in the market. You have to do your research to find the right ones for your SO.
If your soon-t0-be-husband wears suits all the time, get him personalized cufflinks. You can get his initials or a personal design monogrammed on the flat part. Cufflinks can be elaborate, simple, or funny. Choose the style that best fits your partner.
An Engraved Flask
There's nothing that says fancy more than an engraved flask. It's useful for relaxing during tense times and getting some liquid courage in unnerving situations. A hip flask can go from $10 to $200 depending on the quality and brand. If you're not sure what to get, you choose from the best hip flasks around.
Aside from words and gestures, giving presents is an excellent way to show your love and appreciation towards your partner, especially on your wedding day. You don't have to get them something expensive.
Think of a thoughtful gift that your partner will like. It can be something handmade, a personalized present, or a special object. Your partner will appreciate whatever you get as long as you put a lot of thought and effort into it.
