If you’re looking for ideas for what to give the men in your bridal party – perhaps something meaningful for your groom, personal for the best man and useful for the ushers, then here it is. We’ve got the latest inspiration from a symbolic love letter with a difference to personalised keepsakes and something much more unusual and truly unique.
It’s customary to give the best man and ushers a thank you for their help, and a nice touch to give a special keepsake. Hip flasks are fashionable and wine bottle accessories are always going to be useful but sometimes it’s a thoughtful gift that makes all the difference.
You don’t have to spend a fortune, you could have a personalised gift engraved with a message to remind them of your friendship or give something useful they could wear on the wedding day and after such as cufflinks, a monogrammed hanky or even just socks.
When it comes to a gift for your groom, you’ll know better than anyone just what he will appreciate most. Whether that’s a simple love letter marking the occasion of your marriage or an engraved watch to symbolise how precious is the time you spend together.
For a symbolic addition to your ceremony write a love letter to each other and then seal your words and vows inside a locked wooden box to commemorate your marriage.

For something truly unusual commission a piece of art to give your groom on your wedding day or first anniversary. A painting, sculpture or a cast of your own faces in a kiss like this one below that was created for a couple’s wedding by London based artist Paul Stafford will look stunning in your home and be a real talking point for years to come.
