The Sweetest Ways To Surprise Your Partner on Your Wedding Day

Before you kick back and relax after finalising all of your wedding plans, we need to remind you of one more detail that needs to be taken care of. Of course, we’re talking about a gift exchange.

While it’s not a major tradition so to speak, it is a sweet inclusion, and it does make for some lovely photos. Take notes on some of the things your groom would like so you can surprise him with a thoughtful gift on your Special Day, and definitely don’t shy away from shoving this article in his face, just so he takes the hint and can reciprocate the surprise for you too ;).

Fairies, get scrolling, and get ready to be inspired!

For the Groom


They’re practical and he can use them on the day too! You can even go the extra mile and get them personalised, perhaps with his initials, or the date of your wedding.

You can’t go wrong with a nice bottle of perfume. Choose a perfume that you love to smell on him, particularly on your special day together, and perhaps one that is usually outside of his budget, for a luxurious touch.

Shaving Set

For the well groomed groom, a sophisticated shaving set is sure to please.


Cigars all sorts of bougie, and there’s something about a man posing with a cigar that just… ticks all of the boxes, so it’s a win-win sort of gift.

Duffel Bag

A luxe leather bag is a perfect gift for your groom, and he can even carry it with him when the two of you whisk away on your honeymoon.

Monogrammed Handkerchief

Another classic gift, a handkerchief is great even if he isn’t the type to carry one around. With a monogrammed touch, it can serve as a little keepsake to help him remember the big day.


If your man loves to capture every moment, then a GoPro is the perfect gift that he’s sure to love.


Help him be punctual with a fancy schmancy watch that you know he’ll love.

Personalised Flask

We imagine this would be a very popular gift among the boys, especially if you’re groom isn’t one to shy away from a drink to two. Get it engraved for a great personalised touch.

Just in case he’s a little difficult to please, a nice leather wallet is a safe bet that he can also get some practical use out of. You definitely can’t go wrong here.

For the Bride


A little bling never hurt anybody, and extra brownie points go out to the groom who can get something that carries a little meaning.


Go for your girl’s favourite bottle of perfume or one that she’s had her eye on for a while, and you’ll definitely win her praise.

Ring Dish

A cute little dish, maybe even one that’s personalised, is perfect for your bride to keep her new wedding band on when it’s not around her finger.

Jewellery Box

Alternatively, a lovely antique jewellery box will make for a gift she’ll cherish.

Polaroid Camera

Our personal favourite, a polaroid camera is a great gift that she can get use out of, especially during your up and coming honeymoon.

Photo Album

Get your DIY on with a photo album that you’ve put together. Use cute photos that you know she loves, as well as some heart warming words that’ll melt her heart.


To help wipe away her tears during speeches, a handkerchief is a great gift that she can use on the day.

Customised Mug

This is great if your lady loves to cosy up with a mug of tea, and bonus points if you can get a matching his and her set.

Lace Robe

A little something special for her morning as she gets ready for the big day.

Special Drawing

Getting a picture of the two of you drawn is a beautiful, sentimental gift that we just know she’ll adore.
