Groom’s gifts are the perfect “little something” to present before a wedding ceremony. Throughout the whirlwind of events leading up to the big day, surprising your husband-to-be with a small token of your affection gives them an opportunity to slow down, take a second to themselves, and simply enjoy the moment. Even if you’re unsure about what to buy the man in your life (maybe he’s one of those that “already has everything”), there’s a trio of classic accessories that never fail – cufflinks, money clips, and watches. The most stylish grooms will always have use for any of these luxury gifts, long after the wedding and honeymoon are over.
Cufflinks are one of the easiest ways to show off your groom’s personal style. Romantic types will love an understated pair of black rose links by Jan Leslie (1), while a more understated design is better suited for the modern minimalist (2). Links of London has countless designs ranging from classic to Art Deco (3), and – for the animal lover – we absolutely love Montblanc’s elephant cufflinks.
For the stylish groom, even something as small as a money clip is a chance to make a luxury statement. The stainless steel “Essential Sartorial” money clip from Montblanc (5) will last through decades of everyday use, and features a checkered pattern inspired by tailoring. Alternatively, we couldn’t think of a more apropos money clip for a groom’s gift than a solid gold version from Tiffany & Co. engraved with the words, “I Do” (6).
Of course, you can never go wrong with the gift of a luxury timepiece. Does your man have a passion for cars and racing? The Classic Racing and Mille Miglia collections by Chopard (7) beautifully incorporate the essence of Italian car racing, from the watch faces to the bands that resemble the pattern of tire treads. For golf addicts, the UNICO Golf watch by Hublot (8) was designed specifically for the sport, allowing golfers to calculate their score with a high-performance display. And if you want an all-around showstopper, Baume & Mercier’s limited edition Clifton watch (9) boasts a sleek black dial with tachymeter scale on the bezel and silver subdials.
