If you've got a gift list with Prezola and you're looking to add the perfect gifts for the groom - you’ve come to the right place!

Maybe you’re looking for that special wedding gift that the groom will love, or you’re wondering what the groom’s family would want to give you. Well, we’ve got you.

It’s an ancient myth that grooms aren’t interested when it comes to their wedding gift list. OF COURSE THEY ARE! Style-savvy couples tend to take an equal interest and pride in their homes these days.

And for many, there’s a lot of joint decision-making and shared taste.

But if you’re looking specifically to add wedding gifts for the groom to your list, we’ve come up with a few of our favourites that just so happen to tick the ‘bloke’ box.

We should know – here at Prezola, we’re the UK’s favourite wedding gift list service and honeymoon fund, so we get to speak to hundreds of couples every week.

Either way, check out our top 22 cool and unique wedding gift ideas for the groom that you can add to your gift list.

Groom gifts for the garden

1. Idbury fire pit

What is it with men and fire, eh? Still, if him having his ‘Me MAN. Man make FIRE.’ moment means that the rest of us get to keep cosy and roast marshmallows in the garden, who are we to complain!

A fire pit is one of those perfect groom gifts that the whole family will enjoy together for years to come.

2. Big Green Egg

Sod it. If you’re going to ask for a barbecue, get a proper one that will last a lifetime. The equivalent of a six-oven Aga, it can smoke, sear, bake, roast and act as a pizza oven. Your mates may need to club together for this groom’s gift, but he’ll forever be the King of Summer!

3. Rounders set

Ok. So, might be a bit ambitious to play in the garden (unless you have a garden the size of a small field) but the beauty of this rounders set, is that it’s ultra-portable. So, you can take it to the park, the beach… wherever! When it comes to gifting ideas for the groom, we think this one’s a winner.

6. Wüsthof classic ikon 2 piece carving set

Just FYI: you’re not officially married until you’ve carved a turkey the size of a labradoodle. It’s the law. Adding separate knives to your wedding gift list is a great way to build up a full collection, without one person having to splash out. Not only do they make great wedding gifts for the groom, but they’re also fantastic for follow-up birthday and Christmas gifts.


7. Sandwich grill & waffle maker

8. Melitta TS smart bean to cup coffee machine

If the groom in question is a coffee connoisseur… the kind who secretly judges his friends based on their countertop hardware… then this high-tech barista-style beast could be the perfect groom’s gift. It’s a big-ticket item but if there’s a KitchenAid on the list, you’re definitely allowed to add this - plus there's always group gifting to make it cheaper for guests.

11. Koenji wash bag

For the guy who’s always on the go, groom gifts don’t come much more useful than the Koenji Wash Bag. And, if you were thinking (quite understandably) that a wash bag isn’t exactly the most exciting present… just you wait. This one is engineered by experts in Taiwan, and made from waterproof, ballistic nylon – the same stuff they use to make bulletproof vests! A really thoughtful gift that will last years.

17. LSA islay decanter & tumbler with walnut base and coasters

There’s something terribly grown up and cool about owning a weighty decanter and filling it with smoky, amber-coloured whisky… like something straight out of Mad Men. Of course, if you’re curating the perfect groom gift, he’ll need the matching tumblers to go with it. Or, go the whole hog and order the matching ice bucket for a 60’s New York City vibe.
