It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas – and we couldn’t be more excited about it!

From next Monday we’ll be kicking off a whole month of festive wedding inspiration, with yuletide ideas, winter DIYs and Christmas giveaways.

But for eager early birds who simply can’t wait to start prepping for Christmas, we thought we’d kick things off a little early with the first of our Bridal Party Gift Guides.

It’s gentlemen first, as our in-house personal shopper Bené Eaton brings us her pick of gifts for the guys…

The Ultimate Gift Guides for Grooms and Groomsmen

Finding the perfect wedding day gift for your fine fella and his groomsmen is an absolute must.

When I think of gifts for grooms, I love anything that’s custom-made. One of my favorite groom gift ideas is from Juniper Books—You can pick eight of your future hubby’s favorite reads and then customize the spines of the books with his name.

I also have a soft spot for keepsakes (like a watch, a compass, or fancy cuff links) that could one day be passed down to a son or grandson.

When it comes to the groomsmen, you’re sure to get the “best fiancée award” if you help your future hubby find gifts for his leading men.

I’m a firm believer in groomsmen gifts that have elements of practicality. I tend to go for gifts that guys will use again and again (like snazzy socks, sunglasses, or a bow tie).

I’ve searched high and low to put together the ultimate gift guides for grooms and groomsmen. And with Christmas inching closer and closer, a few of these dapper finds might even be perfect under the tree.
