There is no hard-and-fast rule on what to get for your husband-to-be for the big day, but brides naturally want something that the husband will remember for the rest of their lives.
It can be overwhelming to select just one gift from the myriad of options available, so here are a couple of our best recommendations. Take heed of these great pointers that will lead you toward the perfect gift!
Suitcase for Travel
A high-quality suitcase will endure repeated wear-and-tear in the airport for vacations and business trips. If you're planning to travel around before settling in a permanent home, you’ll be thankful for investing in a sturdy and roomy suitcase.
Rimowa has been manufacturing suitcases since 1898. Dubbed as the "Rolls-Royce of Suitcases", this brand of modern receptacles do not come cheap but for a very good reason. Their products can withstand bumpy surfaces and every inch of it is almost indestructible – body, wheels, handles, side handles, lock, etc. Just one Rimowa suitcase and you’re made for life.

The 21” Rimowa Salsa Air Carry-On is a good suitcase investment. It’s not the biggest in their collection but it will last you a lifetime for short travels.
Watch – A Modern Take on the Classic
In general, men aren’t really fussy with clothing and accessories. However, most men will splurge on a watch. One good watch for men is equivalent to a chest of accessories for women. The groom’s face will most probably light up once he opens the gift from his bride and discovers a nice watch inside. Give him a good one and he’ll wear it every day.
A watch is a huge investment so the groom’s taste should always be the basis for your purchase. For starters, consider a watch that combines the modern with the traditional.

Indulge the Husband’s Hobbies
You’ll flatter your husband if you pick a gift that’s useful to his hobbies as it will show how much you know him.
Our suggestions in this category vary depending on your husband’s hobbies. The GoPro Hero5, for example, is great for husbands who are into photography, sports, and travel. It really ups the ante of travel and sports photos. Your husband will find good use for it in land, sea, and air.

Brides are usually more particular about wedding mementos. However, you can get your groom to jump in the wedding fever with you by providing him with personalized cufflinks or tie which are specially made for the wedding. These items will still remain stylish and usable even after the wedding.
Something to look forward to in the House
You’ll be sharing a home with the love of your life soon, and that should be more than enough reason for him to look forward to coming home. Sometimes, however, a little extra incentive won’t hurt.
