What to Get Your Groom: Watch vs. Boudoir Album

One of the most important gifts—if not the most important gift—you’ll give on your wedding day is the one you give to your groom. This gift has to be personal, thoughtful, and unique. You want to show your soon-to-be-husband just how much you can’t wait to be married to and spend the rest of your life with him.

A common groom’s gift is a watch. It’s something he can wear during the ceremony and for years to come. Plus, you can personalize it with a heartfelt inscription.

But what if you stepped outside of the traditional groom’s gift box? What if you gave him something intimate, vulnerable, and stunning?

I’m talking about a boudoir session! Imagine his reaction to an album full of gorgeous photos of you in all your glory. That’s one way to get him excited for the honeymoon!

Let’s take a look at the pros and con of each option to help you decide what gift to give the love of your life!

  • The Watch

    The great thing about a watch is it’s timeless and always in style. Unlike most accessories, a watch will always look good. Plus, a watch is a genuinely useful item and one he can wear every day for the rest of his life. It’s even sweeter if you inscribe a personalized message—and maybe your wedding date as well.

    However, a watch is a very traditional—and very expected—gift. It’s not very original or very unique, and there’s very little you can do to make it truly personal and emblematic of your relationship. It’s a useful gift, but gifts aren’t always just about useful. There’s a good chance he’ll appreciate having a new watch, but is it something that will make his jaw drop? Is it a gift he’ll never forget?

  • The Boudoir Album

    Some women worry about feeling awkward or uncomfortable taking boudoir photos, and that’s totally understandable! But a great boudoir photographer will always meet you at your comfort level and will never expect you to undress or pose in a way that you don’t feel comfortable with. And if you’re unsure how your man will feel about intimate photos of you, casually drop the idea into conversation and see how he reacts.

    Most likely though, he’d love to have photos of you that he could cherish forever, photos to remind him of just how absolutely beautiful and amazing you are. Plus, a boudoir session can be a great confidence boost and give you a much-needed break in the middle of hectic wedding planning.
