8 Unique Gifts For The Father Of The Bride Or Groom

By  | 

It’s tradition to present a gift to the father and mother of the Bride and Groom on the wedding day, which is usually where the bouquets of flowers and cufflinks customised with initials make an appearance!

But what happens when you want to get them something a little bit more special?

Here are 8 unique and bespoke gift ideas to give the father of the bride or groom as a memento of the special day:

1. Giving Me Away Keyring

£13.99 from www.notonthehighstreet.com

Not on the High Street do a wide selection of customisable gifts for the whole wedding party, but this keyring caught our eye. The option of two different wordings, and the ability to add your own engraving, makes this gift truly personal.

2. Walk Me Down The Aisle Socks

£2.88 from www.etsy.com

If it’s a running joke in your family that you often gift your father socks (they can never have too many pairs!), then these will go down a treat for a little humour and sentimentality.

3. Handy Man Keepsake

£24.11 from www.etsy.com

If your dad is fond of a bit of DIY, and is the kind of guy to have a man-cave full of tools and odds-and-ends, then this is the perfect memento!

4. Morning Coffee

£7.20 from www.etsy.com

If you and your father have spent countless mornings, afternoons, and evenings putting the world to rights over a cup of coffee or a brew, then make the wedding breakfast all the more special with a customised coffee mug or tea cup.

5. Hidden Tie Message

£6.43 from www.etsy.com


Available in a variety of colours, these patches are a great way to share a secret message with your dad on your big day.

6. Custom Hankerchief

£13.39  from www.amazon.co.uk

It’s likely tears will be spilled on the wedding day, so come prepared with suitable gifts.

7. First Dance Music Box

£37 from www.etsy.com

We love this bespoke piece, which can be customised to play your first dance song, or your Father-Daughter dance song. Sure to bring a tear to the eye every time it’s played.

8. For Forgetful Fathers

£28 (on offer at time of writing, usually £35) from www.notonthehighstreet.com

If your dad is likely to forget where he left his watch, cufflinks, and car keys, make sure he’s prepared for the big day with this unique (and useful) gift!
