Groom's Survival Kit

The Groom's Day-Of Survival Kit

Besides letting your groom get involved in planning the big day, another way to show the Mr. that he's special is with a wedding day gift. It doesn't have to be extravagant to tug at his heartstrings and calm his nerves — something small and thoughtful should do the trick. I especially love the idea of the groom's day-of survival kit, which is filled with trinkets that each have practical, tongue-in-cheek duties. Here's what you'll need:

  • Flask ($30): This classy stainless steel flask is tiny enough to fit in the groom's pocket to sneak a swig during the big day.
  • Card ($12): Use this handy card to explain the kit's goodies.
  • Socks ($30): These striped Paul Smith socks will keep his tootsies warm in case he gets cold feet.
  • Toiletry Case ($45): A stylish wool toiletry case will hold all the kit's essentials and then can be used for the honeymoon or other romantic getaways.
  • Mints ($3): Don't just give him mints, give him manly mints to ensure a fresh kiss.
  • Ring Pops ($20 for 40): Hopefully these will be for a sweet postwedding treat, but they're there in case he forgets the real deal.
  • Mini Bottle of Alcohol ($32): Something has to go in the flask! This single malt scotch whiskey will help calm the nerves.
  • Life Savers ($1): Throw in some butter rum Life Savers to keep him from drowning in emotion.
