First Edition Book
If your groom is an avid reader, then what better gift than a first edition copy of a book by his favourite author. Or better still, a signed copy. It’s often surprising what little treasures can be found in antique markets and second-hand book shops. There are many specialist and reputable sellers online too! Look for sellers who are possibly members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association (ABA), the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) or the Provincial Booksellers Fairs Association (PBFA).
It goes without saying that one of the most traditional and popular gifts a bride can give her groom on their wedding day is a keepsake watch. It’s something that is not only practical but will also become an heirloom which can be passed down to any children that may come along in the future. The watch can be engraved with your names or initials, and the date of the marriage, and possibly a personal message. Always shop with a reputable jeweller, and you might even be able to purchase your bridesmaids gifts there as well!
Whether you’re having a honeymoon abroad, or a low-key mini moon in the UK, why not give your husband-to-be a gift he can use on your honeymoon?
