According to the etiquette books and websites I visited, appropriate choices for a groom's gift include engraved picture frames, leather desk sets, and monogrammed handkerchiefs. I can picture the confusion on my fiance's face opening any of these items. They're just not a good fit. So how might you adapt the tradition so that it has meaning for the man in your life? As with all things wedding-related, one way to keep tradition alive is by making it your own.
