Some grooms will be right there with you, mapping out the seating plan and helping you finalise the guest list with the same kind of passion they put into talking about last night's goals with their mates down the pub.

Others will show a keen interest in the menu and the music choices, but it’s very much a case of “whatever makes you happy” when you’re asking him to choose between table linen swatches. Either way, it’s very much his day too – which is why he deserves something from our pick of the best groom’s gifts.

A thoughtful gift for your groom on the morning of the wedding will show him that you’re thinking about him and that you’re excited to be marrying him. It's also designed to mark the momentous journey you’re about to take as a couple.

Thankfully, if you’re short of ideas, we’ve got inspiration to suit all types of groom styles, couples, and budgets – from fun and playful presents and luxury gifts to meaningful gestures, and everything in between.
