We all know the Old English Rhyme that reads, “Something Olde, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue”. But let’s not forget, Something for the Groom! As one of the most monumental days of your life approaches, you begin to ponder the idea of that customary little gift to present to your husband to be. Be it holding sentiment, practicality, or just a simple laugh out loud moment, we’ve got you covered on some great gift ideas!
WRITE IT OUT
These days with the convenience of technology and electronics, it’s no doubt we have somewhat lost touch with the handwritten language. Set aside a day and browse your local craft stores to find some stationary. You will be surprised how unique and cool some options are, from handmade and recycled paper to the ingenious seed paper, where when planted, flowers will bloom. There is something so personal about penmanship, pair that with the intimacy of your heart, and it becomes priceless.
SOMETHING FOR THE HONEYMOON
The honeymoon is arguably the best part, right? The time where you and your new husband decompress from the wedding and jump start the married life. We love the idea of gifting a special something for the travel pack like an engraved flask, a pocket watch, or perhaps the surprise of an excursion on the honeymoon!
With your beau’s hobbies in mind of course, treat him to a relaxing weekend of golf, the spa, tickets to the game or wine tasting in Napa Valley. Allow him time to recover from the hectic wedding vibes built up from the last couple months and let him sit back, relax and enjoy some time from the wifey.
HANDMADE WITH LOVE
Let your creativity run wild and add a personal touch with a handmade present. Pictures from the photo booth on your first date, or the tickets to the carnival, you know, where he won you that fluffy pink unicorn that you slept with every night thinking of him. Theses touches make great pieces for a scrap book or photo album and this is the kind of gift you open up and share with your grandkids and hold on to forever.
LAUGH IT OUT
They say laughter is the best medicine. What better way to ease those wedding day nerves than the gift of a good laugh. Take one of your longest standing inside jokes and turn it into a gift. The laughter will comfort him and want to see you walk down the aisle that much more.
Presenting a gift is about the giver just as much as it is about the receiver. Whether it’s touching or laughable, it evokes a feeling that can’t be bought. Here at Cole Drake Events we do just the thing. We are passionate about delivering that love and fun to all of your guests.
