Have you considered a groom box? The perfect opportunity to show that you are thinking of your other half on the morning of your wedding, a groom box typically comprises a selection of sentimental items that will make your main man smile. You can also include practical elements too to ensure he is armed with all the essentials ahead of the ceremony.

Take a look at these ideas with which to fill your groom box and earn wife points before the wedding has even begun…

1. A love letter

First and foremost, tell your fiancé how much he means to you by communicating your most intimate and heart-felt thoughts in a love letter. For his eyes only, a love letter is a beautiful gesture and a wonderful keepsake of your wedding day.

2. Socks

Warm any signs of cold feet with an extra special pair of socks.

3. Keyring with wedding date

Adding to his collection of keepsakes, a keyring with your names and wedding date will mean the world to him.

4. Wifey for Lifey t-shirt

Don’t let him forget his commitment and the importance of the day. A ‘Wifey for Lifey’ t-shirt or garment with a similar phrase will ensure he pledges his vows with a renewed sense of vigour.

5. Mints

Make sure you don’t recoil in horror for the first kiss by keeping your groom topped up with mints for freshness all day long. 

6. Tissues

No matter how emotionally strong your man claims to be, there is no doubt he’ll be holding back the tears when he gets a glimpse of you in your dress. Prepare him for your walk down the aisle with some trusty tissues.

7. Cufflinks

A pair of personalised cufflinks or cufflinks with a special meaning will add a special touch to your groom’s ensemble.

8. A guidebook

The Ladybird book, How it Works: The Husband, is a must-read for all grooms and will provide an instant laugh to counteract those wedding nerves.

9. Favourite spirit

Include a miniature bottle of your husband-to-be’s favourite alcoholic tipple. A shot of Dutch courage before the ceremony may well be welcomed with open arms.

10. Love Hearts

Remind him just how much he means to you with a packet of Swizzels Love Hearts, offering continuous declarations of love in the sweetest way.
