You’re getting married, and you want to get a special something for your future spouse. Is it necessary? No, but for some couples, it’s an important gesture and a worthwhile memento that will mean something long after they walk down the aisle.
Here are 6 perfect gift exchange options for every kind of bride and groom out there.
For the Bride
A Touch of Sparkle
Get her something that will never go out of style, like a beautiful touch of sparkle. This can be anything from bracelet to a luxury watch for her - whatever she likes and chooses to wear. Some standout options include a Swarovski pendant or a pair of earrings and a necklace that she can wear on the big day.
Some Mrs. Celebration
Honor the occasion and the new chapter in your lives with a personalized “Mrs.” or “Wifey” gift. This can even be something like a bathing suit, an overnight bag, or a small clutch - something that she can wear often and that will make her excited for your new chapter together.
For the Two of You
What better way to celebrate your new life together than with a personalized ring box to house your engagement rings and wedding bands? Present it to her with a love letter or a small note saying how much you’re looking forward to the future together, and - if you want to take it one step further - put in a “placeholder” item like a gift card for a couple’s massage.
For the Groom
A Personalized Gift
Cufflinks with the wedding date or a personalized watch with a special note inside. It could even have a cute time-related message that says something like, “See you at the altar at 3:00 pm” or “Forever starts now.”
A video message from loved ones. This can include his family, coworkers, or close friends- just come up with a list of people that mean a lot to him and ask them to answer questions like:
- Why do you love [his name]?
- What do you think is the key to a happy marriage?
- What’s your favorite memory with [his name]?
It will mean a lot and he’ll be able to keep it for years to come.
Or, go the opposite route and get them something completely silly and off the wall. This can be something like some cozy socks for his “cold feet” or a bottle of his favorite liquor with some custom engraved glasses. After all, there’s no harm in getting the party started!
