It’s not every day that you marry the love of your life; this is why every groom’s mission is to find the best wedding gifts from groom to bride. As the big day draws near, the search will become more challenging. Many options are available, but each bride is unique and deserves only that one special gift. 

Sentimental Gifts for the Bride

If you ask the maid-of-honor, they’ll probably suggest getting something sentimental. Since there will be an emotional connection to the gift, it can make your wedding day even more special. Here are some heartfelt ideas to consider:

1. Diamond Tennis Bracelet  

Ready to splurge on your first marital gift? Consider a classic diamond tennis bracelet.

Or, if your bride prefers more fiery stones, a moissanite piece could be a great option. Either way, the bracelet symbolizes your promise to go hand-in-hand through everything in your marriage.

2. A Locket or a Pendant 

Some grooms might find this old-fashioned, but a locket with your photo or a pendant with your names set in gold is a lovely gift for a romantic bride.

3. A Symbolic Gift from a Trip 

Take a trip down memory lane and reflect on your past travels together. Is there a moment that both of you considered extra special? Find a special item that can encapsulate this memory and make it extra memorable.

4. A Framed Copy of Your Wedding Vows

While inexpensive, nothing can embody the essence of your marriage more than the vows you have written. The framed vows will be a great addition to your bedroom. There are lots of great frames on Etsy to consider and personalize.

Practical Yet Sweet Gifts for the Bride From the Groom

Let’s face it; some prefer to give and get practical gifts. If you’re looking for practical yet sweet gifts for the bride from the groom, here are a few ideas:

5. Suitcase for The Honeymoon

This a chill gift for a chill bride. Your honeymoon is just as important as your wedding day.

Consider getting a matching suitcase for your honeymoon. It can make your trip feel even more special and exciting. Plus, you’ll be able to use it on many more adventures together.

6. Husband and Wife Custom Mug

Another inexpensive, swoon-worthy, practical wedding gift is a pair of Mr. and Mrs. personalized wedding mugs. Make her smile by reminding her how excited you are to wake up each morning with her from your wedding day onwards. It’s a sweet and affordable gift that can remind her of your excitement to start each day together.

7. Wedding Shoes 

Gifting her a pair of wedding shoes is a great way to begin your special day on the right foot. Choosing accessories and shoes that she can wear again after the wedding is always a good idea, too!
