By the time your wedding day arrives, your groom has picked the perfect ring, dreamed up and executed a flawless proposal, and dutifully assisted with all the painstaking planning minutiae along the way (Chantilly cream or ganache? Cerulean or teal? Gardenias or hydrangeas?). I don’t know about you, but there’s something undeniably romantic about that kind of effort and attention to detail.
While the bride-groom day-of gift exchange may seem to some like the tipping point in a day already fraught with presents, I happen to think it’s an adorable way to remind your partner-to-be just how excited you are to say I Do—plus, after all that planning your groom deserves to be on the other side of a romantic gesture! Whether it’s a big-ticket item (a recently-wed friend splurged on a Porsche driving experience for her thrill-seeking husband-to-be) or a small token of love (a handwritten note will never go out of style), here’s 20 gifts for every groom that are sure to impress.
