Goodies from the Groom: A Gift Guide for Soon-to-be-Husbands

Soon-to-be-grooms, this one is for you. Whether your lady is busy working a 9-5 or planning your wedding day (or both!), she deserves the world on a platter. But you already knew that, didn’t you? We put together this gift guide for you, filled with wedding gift ideas, so you can give her a little token of your appreciation before you say “I do.”

For the One That Loves Self-Care

Spa Adolphus

Offering a special “Countdown to the Aisle” package, this place is just calling your bride’s name. Be sure to check the deals and give it to her in plenty of time so she can take full advantage before she becomes a Mrs. (And after her spa day, we’ve got tips on keeping that glow up until the big day.)


The Spa at the Hotel Cresent Court

With facials, massages, and waxing on their list of options, this spa can do it all. Surprise her with a day of self-care that will leave her relaxed and glowing even more than she already does.

For the One That Stays at Home

Monrow Pullover and Jogger Pants

Get her something she can do everything in. This waffle-knit set from Monrow is available starting November 15. The definition of comfort, snag it now while you still can. The pieces can be purchased together or separate—In the top, purchase a size up for a longer fit, but in the pants, purchase a size smaller for a more fitted look.


Esther Penn Varsity Set

For the gals who like to sport shorts and sweatshirts together during the fall, this is the set for them. Fit for errands, brunch, or getting work done on the couch, you can buy the pieces separately, and we recommend staying true to size. BTW, this store will get in more sets throughout the season, so keep up with ‘em on Instagram @esther_penn. 



For the One That Prefers Flowers to Chocolate 

Avant Garden

Located on Oak Lawn Avenue, this stop is a must for floral fanatics. From succulents to extravagant arrangements, call or walk in to make your selection for your sweetheart.


For the One That Likes a Surprise

Cosabella Pret a Porter Set

Save this delicate set from Cosabella for the honeymoon—or don’t. It’s up to your lady in waiting.

For the One That Sparkles

Susan Saffron Jewelry Boutique

Shop classic brands like Zoë Chicco, or more contemporary lines like Liven Co., because we firmly believe no one can ever have enough jewelry.
