While you may be busy with the preparations for the wedding, it's so important to take some time to think about how to show your soon-to-be groom just how excited you are to marry him. Taking a few extra minutes to find him the perfect gift is a special way to say I love you, and I'm so excited to be your bride. Here are some places in San Francisco where you'll discover the ideal gift for every type of groom.
The Voyager Shop
This unique store offers an eclectic array of gifts for your casual guy. Choose from relaxed ties, wallets, leather goods, dopp kits and even luxe grooming products. They have two locations in the city: the Mission District and Hayes Valley.
If your guy leans more upscale, venture over to Paul Smith on Geary Street near Union Square. The posh — and slightly quirky — British brand has been in the menswear business for over 40 years, and carries an assortment of higher-end accessories for men including cufflinks, tie clips, wallets, scarves and watches.

This spirits shop off of Market Street is the go-to destination for specialized and artisanal liquors. If your guy is into hard-to-find whiskeys, this is the perfect place to buy him that special gift. You can even get his bottle engraved with his initials or a heartfelt message from his new bride.
Taylor Stitch is a bespoke company in the Mission where you can make your groom a custom shirt just for him. With the help of the knowledgeable (and always well-dressed) staff, you can choose your fit, fabric, and notions to make it a truly one-of-a-kind gift. Have his shirt monogrammed to make it extra unique.
If your guy appreciates a hint of nostalgia, then Wingtip is the ideal stop for finding the groom gift. Not only does it offer unusual, oldey-timey pieces like canes, leather goods, bar accessories, and even cigars, but you'll also find an in-house barbershop and private lounge for a true gentleman's experience.
