Wedding party pocket watch, Not on the High Street

The most fabulous father of the bride gift ideas

The very best father of the bride gifts that you can totally use for father's day too.

Your wedding day isn’t just a big day for you and your spouse-to-be, it’s pretty massive for your parents too. The father of the bride in particular has a big role and it’s not unusual for dads to be feeling more than a little bit emotional!


From watching you take your first steps to taking those important steps down the aisle with you, your dad has played a significant part in your life and deserves all the love on your big day. We think selecting a personal gift that he’ll love is the perfect way to show him how much he means to you.

Buying a thoughtful gift for the father of the groom is also a great idea. Chances are he’s welcomed you into the family and possibly even contributed to the wedding in some way, so it’s a great way to say thank you. Plus, it’s never too early to start earning those daughter-in-law brownie points!

Dads can be tricky to buy for and so to make things easier and to give you some father of the bride (or groom!) gifting inspiration, we’ve scoured the web and found the best presents to give to your dad on your wedding day.

Whether he has a favourite tipple, a sweet tooth or would simply enjoy a sentimental keepsake, we’ve got all areas – and all dads – covered. Select a few small items and create a wedding morning gift bag or select one extra special item to present to him during the day.

We think he’ll love our top pick of father of the bride and groom gifts!
