Let’s face it – we all know and love the time honoured classics. The gold watch, the monogrammed cuff links, even the silver hip flask have all traditionally been deemed suitable gifts for your husband-to-be. But perhaps you want to buck the trend and are searching for that little something extra; something that is unique to both you as a couple and something that eloquently expresses your love for one another as you begin your future as husband and wife.


Why not check out the following sentimental gift ideas for that little extra something that will really show your partner how much your care.


1) Secret message


Include an embroidered secret message on the back of your groom’s tie or pocket square or better still, engrave something that he is guaranteed to use again and again, day after day. As a house of music lovers, we adore this hand etched copper plectrum.

2) Tokens of Love Box


A truly personal and individualised gift, this really is a keepsake to treasure. Fill it with anything that serves as a memento of your love for one another: pictures of special places visited, tickets from your first date, shared loves and of course, don’t forget to include the reasons why you love your man.

Take your time to engrave it with your names and wedding date and you can create something that not only looks truly beautiful but which will serve as a wonderful reminder of your wedding day and the reasons why you fell in love in the first place.


3) Love Video 


Grab your IPad and record a personalised and sentimental message via video. Deliver it to his room on the morning of your wedding day and he can watch it as he gets ready to meet you at the altar. Even better, surprise your man by playing it at your wedding reception in front of all your guests and really get the tears flowing!


4) Boudoir Shoot


Increasing in popularity, a boudoir shoot is the perfect gift to present to your partner.  Snap a few revealing shots in your bridal underwear and zap these off to his phone minutes before the start of the ceremony and you will be guaranteed a ear to ear grin as you walk to meet him down the aisle!

However, if you really want to treat your groom to something a little saucy that he can treasure for always, then you should definitely consider booking in for a boudoir photo shoot.

Wedding Photographers like McAvoy Photography do fabulously sexy but classy shoots and specialise in putting hesitant and shy models at ease. Bundle the photographs into a gorgeous keepsake album for you and your groom to cherish long after the wedding day itself.


5) Family Heirloom


Search your Mum’s attic or speak to your Nanna or Grandad about any special keepsakes that may have been handed down from generation to generation. Perhaps your father has a vintage tie pin or pocket watch that you can gift to your husband-to-be. Knowing the sentiment and family history behind such a treasure will guarantee it will hold a special place in your partner’s affections.

6) Love Songs

Take your time to compile a CD of all your favourite love songs, those that conjure up memories of when you first met, first dates, your first dance song and all the special places you have visited and times you have shared. That way, every time he plays your gift, he will be reminded of all the wonderful moments that have brought you both to where you are today.



 7) LOVE in Lights – Hollywood Style


Of course, it goes without saying that with a return to ultra GLAM weddings in trend this forthcoming wedding season nothing screams LOOK AT ME more than our super S*P*A*R*K*L*Y ‘LOVE’ wedding letters! Why not hire our large LOVE letters or MR & MRS letter lights as a Wedding Day surprise and literally spell out your love for your husband-to-be!
