Usher Gifts - It is important for a bridegroom to be surrounded by his own friends as ushers on the big day – but not just for moral support. In Roman times, the law dictated that the couple would have ten witnesses, dressed just like the bride and groom so that evil spirits could not cast spells on the couple, and jealous suitors could not kill the groom! Nowadays an usher’s role is rather to greet guests, direct them to their seats and hand out orders of service and buttonholes. A thank you gift is always a welcome touch and if you are stuck for ideas, take a look at our selection of original ushers’ gifts.
Few ushers will turn down a bottle of wine or champagne personalised with his name and a thank you message. Engraved items make excellent presents for ushers too. We have stylish initialled cufflinks, engraved stainless steel hipflasks, dog tags and handsome pen sets with an engraved box lid - an enduring way to say a big thank you for your ushers’ help. Or you might pick up on your usher’s favourite sport or interest with a personalised sports book or calendar, a wine or film journal or an elegant pen, perhaps. How about a fine leather journal or photo album, maybe personalised with your usher’s name on an engraved nameplate, to show how much you value your ushers’ help? But what if you have chosen, as many couples do, to have a little boy for one of the ushers? He would just love a cuddly teddy bear with his name on as a reminder of his important job on your wedding day. We think we have the perfect gift for any usher here so take a look!
