Organising a special present for your spouse-to-be to open on the morning of the wedding is a lovely idea. Here's our pick of gorgeous gifts, from the personalised and unusual to the sweet and thoughtful - or even something practical for the honeymoon!


A perfume subscription service not only saves you the difficult decision of which perfume to choose, it also means your wife-to-be gets to try a new scent every month without having to splash out on a new bottle each time! Plus, it comes with a 7ml atomiser, small enough to pack in hand luggage for your honeymoon.

Everyone loves a candle, and this stylish one comes in a range of scents, including sweet Honeysuckle & Jasmine; fresh Lime, Mint & Basil; and festive-smelling Cinnamon Clove & Orange. Personalise it with a handwritten note to your betrothed, so it's even more special.

Flip-flops are the go-to holiday essential, but for your honeymoon you want something a little bit fancier. In steps the limited edition Velvet Havianas, to add a little touch of just-married luxury to your beachwear!

Even if you're already living together, as 80 per cent of engaged couples are, treat your significant other to a gorgeous gift for the home you share. And how better to sum up your married life than with the sweet message - 'The best is yet to come' - printed on a stylish cushion?

A simple and stunning necklace, the gemstone is pink opal, which is known to calm and clear the heart - perfect for any wedding-day jitters. Traditionally a stone to bring love, there's a lot of sentiment behind this gift, and it's sure to be worn long after the big day itself.

Nothing gets the excitement going quite like receiving a little hamper of goodies to open on your wedding morning, so spoil your wife-to-be by treating her to some hand-selected luxury items of your choosing, from Hendrick's Gin and Hotel Chocolat to Moet Champagne and personalised glasses.

Want to whisk your someone special away, but don't know quite where to take her? A beautifully presented gift card from Secret Escapes will allow her to book a luxury break of her choosing, whether it's a boutique hotel around the corner or an exotic holiday across the globe.

A gorgeous giclee print for your first home as a married couple could not get any cuter than this bird scene by acclaimed artist Anna Wright. Called 'Love, Love, Love' and featuring two bright flamingos gazing into each other's eyes, it's a stylish addition to any home and can serve as a reminder of love, happiness and marriage.


Synonymous with beautiful design and gorgeous quality, Waterford Crystal is the go-to for glasses and barware. Gift your guy glasses from the new Lismore Short Stories Olann collection and he'll be saying "cheers" for years. Many of Waterford's ranges can also be engraved if you want to add a note to your special someone.


We can picture it now: after your wedding day, your new husband will bring you a freshly made coffee every morning... right? At least if you buy him this stylish, compact and quiet Lavazza A Modo Mio Jolie Plus, it'll make it a bit more likely!

It's lovely to have new items to take on honeymoon with you, so treat your man to a personalised washbag. Handmade in the heart of Tuscany from robust Italian leather, this luxury toilet bag comes with a 25-year warranty and is lined with faux boar skin material. So swish!

We are totally in love with this neon wall art from contemporary British artist Lauren Baker. Choose from fun yet heartfelt messages including 'You blow my mind', 'You are pure magic', 'I love you to the moon and back', and our personal favourite 'Together we will burn brighter'.

A classic gift for a groom on his wedding day, we love the modern edge of this hip flask. Have it delivered on the morning of the wedding day, filled with his favourite tipple (perhaps accompanied by a polite reminder not to drink the whole thing before the vows!).

Gifting these typography tea towels - whether as a tongue-in-cheek swipe at suggesting you do the dishes together, or a lovely first Mr & Mrs item for your home - are guaranteed to make him smile, and bring that new marriage glow to the kitchen.

Although it might seem a little strange to gift your husband-to-be a knife on the morning of your wedding, this stunningly designed kitchenware is perfect for the wannabe chef or keen foodie. Combining the best of Japanese craftsmanship with modern design and materials, every Tog knife is individual and can be personalised with anything, such as your wedding date or your spouse's name.

Cashmere gloves are the ultimate luxury item; not something you're likely to buy for yourself, but definitely something you'll treasure. Treat your fiance to these so-soft Mr Quintessential beauties, which can be monogrammed with up to three initials.
