I shared some ideas in a past post on what to give the bride the morning of her wedding, and today I am focused on our top ideas for wedding morning gifts for the groom!
An unofficial gift exchange on the morning of the wedding between the bride and groom can be fun. It doesn’t have to be an expensive gift – a keepsake token or something meaningful works just as well to give your groom.
We see many amazing photo opportunities arise during gift opening, so make sure the photographer is around to capture the emotion of the morning.
You shouldn’t have much trouble finding the perfect gift for your groom because there is a schwack of options online. Here’s our curated list of favorite groom gifts including:
Personalized Wedding Morning Gifts for the Groom
- sweet keepsake
Personalized Golf Ball Markers Magnetic
- fast shipping
- great quality
- unique gift for golfers
Real men cry. And on his wedding day, chances are the tears of joy could flow. Leave out the wad of tissues rolled up in a his pocket, and go the classy route with a handkerchief. Crying made stylish.
Everyone loves a good pun, especially a golfing pun. These funny personalized ball markers will bring him a smile every time he reaches down to line up his next putt.
Extra Thoughtful Groom Gift Ideas
Hand-Written Love Letter
Probably the best gift your sweetheart could receive is a hand written note. Nothing beats knowing that your partner sat down and took time to think about what you mean to them. A hand written love note is a romantic, priceless gesture and something they will cherish for many years to come.
Price: costs next to nothing!
However, you could splurge and buy some really nice handmade paper if you want.
MEN’s Organic Perfume Set
- unique scents
- amazing customer service
Straight Razor Shave
Who doesn't love a good smelling groom? These organic perfumes smell ah-maz-ing and are in the cutest packaging. This set comes with six samples so your man can find just the right scent for him (and you!)
Every man should experience a good straight razor shave once in his life. If you are near his barber shop, or there is an upscale barber in the hotel, send him the morning of the wedding for a straight razor shave.
Fun & Technology Gifts

A birdwatcher will rejoice when they see these binoculars. Complete with a case and tripod, these binoculars are just the thing to spot those rare birds. With a range of 2.5 meters and 1000 yards, they provide a crystal clear view up close and far away.
Food & Experience Gifts
A Furry Friend

Experience Gift Certificate - Flying
Breakfast to last the Entire Day
Box of Chocolates
- quality fine chocolates
- assortment of milk, dark, and white chocolates
- multiple sizes
Bottle of his favourite Champagne or Whisky
I thought I had heard everything, but gifting a goat definitely took me by surprise! A bride from one of our real wedding features apparently gifted her groom a goat.
While it’s one of the more extreme ideas on our list, it’s always a consideration to add a furry friend to your new life together. Puppy, pig, goat – whichever animal companion floats your boat!
Is there a favorite (upscale) golf course nearby that he’s always wanted to try? Give him the chance by gifting a round of golf. Another idea would be to buy a round for him and three (or less) of his groomsmen at his usual course. That way, they could all spend a morning together the day before the wedding to relax, hangout, and enjoy the great outdoors.
Some guys have their head in the clouds and their heart set on reaching for the stars! Flying lessons won’t be cheap, but may be the right idea for any aviator enthusiasts out there. Get a Flying Experience Gift Box and they will choose a flying experience of their choice - balloon and helicopter rides, skydives.
A customized cake is a win-win all around. Choose his favorite flavor of cake and icing, as well has a sports team or activity that he loves. He will love the fact that he has his own personalized cake to enjoy and share with guests.
Believe me when I say, “you may forget to eat once all the festivities get going.” That’s why it is super important to start the day out right with a full stomach.
Often the groom and his guys will may be nursing hangovers from the night before, which we highly recommend against! You’re paying for a huge wedding party and should enjoy every moment of your day.
A nice gift is to have breakfast delivered as room service if staying in a hotel, or to arrange for breakfast delivery to wherever your groom is located on the morning of the wedding.
Slip in a bottle of champagne and some OJ (if you’re feeling fancy), and get a proper brunch-style breakfast into the guys. Your wedding day is all about being stylish and confident — a fancy breakfast will put you in the right mood for the entire day!
Simple yet always romantic is a box of his favorite chocolates. Indulging in some chocolate therapy on his wedding morning is sure to calm his nerves and set things up for a fabulous day.
While we’re talking chocolates, why not pair with a bottle of bubbly or a high-end whiskey?
If you go the champagne route, mimosas are always a wonderful wedding morning celebratory drink. Chocolate and mimosas are always a treat in the morning!
Gifts for the Home
Lots of Love
Wedding day gift exchanges are a lovely tradition. They provide a quiet moment for the bride and groom to connect and reflect on their upcoming marriage.
Whether you choose to open your gifts together or separately, know that either way you’re taking a moment for yourselves on what is likely one of the busiest—but most magical—days of your lives.
Taking a few minutes to celebrate your new partnership with a gift exchange is definitely worth it!
