When your fiancé slipped that engagement ring on your finger, he meant for you to wear it for eternity. For generations, this ring won’t age or go out of style. The ring is symbolic of a union that never ends, just as its look and function are timeless.
Sometimes, brides may feel at a loss about what to give their groom after receiving such a valuable symbol of their union. You want your gift for groom to be special and meaningful, unique and thoughtful. Give your husband-to-be a sentimental gift. Though they say “a diamond lasts forever,” the words and feelings you exchange are also forever.
Timeless vs. Trendy
Have you ever looked back at an old middle school photo and cringed at the fashion and hairstyle choices you made? Back then, you were on-trend and were pleased with how you looked, but those styles quickly gave way to new fads. Today, you would never walk out of your house in that outfit you wore when you were thirteen, because those days have long passed.
When it comes to gifts, the same effect can happen when you choose something trendy over something timeless. Trendy gifts lose their relevance over time (we’re looking at you, pogs), while timeless gifts won’t look out of place in your home years from now. A sentimental gift like a personalized note or an engraved item is timeless because it contains your feelings in an evergreen way.
These simple, yet personalized gifts will outlast the constantly changing fads of the technological age. For example, when your groom gets a gift like a personalized note, you can sit down together and slowly treasure each word. Better yet, decades from now, this note can’t get lost in the “cloud” or a corrupted hard drive. Instead, this personalized declaration of love will always be accessible. An engraved money clip can be carried in his pocket years from now and won’t look outmoded like an older cell phone model.
Show Your Love Through Storytelling
Another idea for a timeless gift, when you have something more to say than will fit on a single note of paper, is a Heartfelt Book. If you’re the kind of person who likes to put down on paper exactly how you feel, this is one gift you’ll enjoy making.
Even if you don’t consider yourself a writer, you can still make a great book. The easy online question-and-answer prompts help get those creative juices flowing. All you have to do is fill in everything you love about your fiancé, and describe all the fun memories you’ve shared together. Then they print your answers in a handsome, hard cover book your groom will treasure.
The best part about a Heartfelt Book is that it’s not going to require a small loan to create. This meaningful gift is unique, timeless, and affordable. Shower your groom with love and celebrate your relationship by telling him how you are looking forward to a life with him. As the years go on, he will be able to read his Heartfelt Book again and again to relish the memories you made together. It is a gift he will treasure and one that you might even share with your grandchildren.
When to Give Your Gift to Your Groom
Some brides choose to give their gift to their groom the evening before their wedding, after the rehearsal dinner. Especially if you can get a quiet moment alone just before your big day to let him know how excited you are and how much you can’t wait to be his wife. Some brides give their gift through a groomsman so your groom can read it just before walking down the aisle. You know, in case he gets the jitters or cold feet. Your loving words have the power to help him focus on your love and your future together. Your groom gift lets him know that in all the chaos of the wedding details, he is at the center of your thoughts.
