One of the most intimate and memorable moments of a couple’s wedding is the gift exchange between the bride and the groom. The gift exchange is most often just before the ceremony, though it can happen the night before or even after the wedding festivities are over. In today’s article, we are sharing groom gift ideas personalized for our St. Louis brides.

Wood watches by JORD, which are made in St. Louis, are an excellent choice for your groom. There are several attractive options to choose from that are sure to match your man’s style. They even have bands for the Apple Watch. According to the website, “[JORD] focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. We value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be; they have somewhere to go. The value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes, and your watch should tell more than time.” Visit their website at to see their amazing collection.
