5 Groom & Groomsmen Gifts For Stylish Guys

Monday, September 11th, 2017

Whether it’s a gesture of appreciation for the man who’ll make you happy for the rest of your days, or a big-day token of thanks from your dude to his best man, best friend or groomsmen, a well-chosen gift is one a guy will smile big for at the moment of unwrapping, and get joy from for days, weeks and years to come. These five suave groom’s and groomsmen gifts, hand picked by our HWB gals, are sure to deliver on both counts.

Fusion Chrome Collection-The Art of Shaving-bloomingdales

Fusion Chrome Collection: bloomingdales

The Art of Shaving’s Fusion Chrome Collection transforms basic grooming into, well…an art. We guarantee you’ll feel your heart go pitter-pat when you watch your boo do his morning manscaping with this polished chrome shaving set’s precision Power Razor and micro-textured-grip Shaving Brush. And the Fusion Collection’s self-draining shaving stand means neither of you will have to sponge off runoff or wipe down handles, leaving more time for newlywed fun!

Portofino Chronnograph IW 391008-IWC-Zadok Jewelers

Portofino Chronograph: Zadok Jewelers

You’ll find the effortlessly elegant Portofino at renowned local jeweler Zadok Jewelers. The gentleman who wears this chic, sporty timepiece, will find himself fielding compliments on its striking push-buttons (an homage to the cockpit of 1960s Italian sports cars), and its convex sapphire glass and appliquéd Roman numerals.

DJI 2Mavic1 Pro Drone-Apple

DJI Mavic Pro Drone: Apple

A must-have for the true gear guru, Apple’s DJI Mavic Pro Drone makes aerial filming an exercise in precision, beauty and efficiency. Just fold up this baby, drop it in your day pack, and go. Wherever you want. Flying it (up to 4.3 miles away!) and shooting 4k video is as easy as using the included controller or the simple drone app on your iPhone or iPad.

Knox Backpack-Tumi-bloomingdales

Knox Backpack: bloomingdales

Tumi’s handsome, lightweight Knox Backpack is stylish enough to sub as a laptop case or briefcase, and rugged enough to accompany the guy-on-the-go on day trips and overnights. Store files, papers, laptop and tablet in the Knox’s well-organized compartments, and rest easy knowing the pack’s ballistic-nylon construction will protect what’s inside, while looking ruggedly sophisticated on the outside.

Yeti Tundra: Bering’s

Y’all if your dude doesn’t yet have a Tundra, now’s the time to get to Bering’s and get him one. With its signature one-piece roto-molded UV polyethylene construction, two inches of YETI polyurethane foam insulation, and freezer-style sealing lid gasket, it’s basically the only cooler he’ll ever need. ‘Nuff said.

If you need an escape, a moment of peace, a reminder of the importance of family, friends and, above all, love, please settle in, snuggle down and join us. And once the storm clouds clear, and the water recedes, let us know what we can do to help you. We are all in this together. #BeStrongHouston #LoveConquersAll

Jenny and Chris knew each other long before they would ever fall in love. Their families were great friends even before the two were born! When Jenny was very young, her family moved away from Houston to Corpus Christi, but they eventually returned. So did Jenny, many years later, to attend nursing school. Chris, by that time, had moved to Austin. That’s when fate brought them back together, at a party at Jenny’s parents’ home, where they reconnected, and Jenny says, “we have been inseparable ever since!” The proposal happened on a weekend when the couple had traveled to Austin for a friend’s wedding—totally smooth move on Chris’ part. Jenny wasn’t suspecting a thing with another wedding going on! They went out for a date night at one of their favorite Austin spots, but the hostess didn’t lead them to a table. Instead, she led them “down candle-filled steps into a private wine cellar.” (Keep going! Here come those cute details we promised…) The cellar door opened and Jenny still recalls all of the details perfectly; champagne, candles and being surrounded by the most beautiful flowers. In the most romantic way Chris proposed to Jenny, the love of his life. And he gets kudos because he made sure the moment didn’t stop there…when they returned to Houston, their families were ready and waiting with a party to celebrate! Jenny and Chris couldn’t wait to say I do—and Jenny couldn’t wait to see Chris’ face when he saw her in her gorgeous Liancarlo gown from Ivory Bridal Atelier.  The big day started with a meaningful ceremony at their church, and concluded with a fantastic reception hosted and catered by the Petroleum Club of Houston. We’re grateful to Serendipity Photography for sharing photos of this sweet couple’s wedding, and grateful to Jenny and Chris for sharing their special day with us…and all of you!

Houston bride Rozlind wanted her wedding to be a fabulous party that still had a warm, inviting feeling. From the black and white decor, to the all-white flowers, and romantic candlelit ballroom at Hotel ZaZa, Rozlind and Matthew’s wedding was the definition of modern glam. If you think all of this sounds glamorous, just wait till you see Rozlind’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toe lace heels! Thanks, Adam Nyholt, for the beautiful photos and congrats to the newlyweds!

Modern Springtime Tent Wedding by Adam Nyholt

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Good friends find your keys for you. A best friend finds your future husband for you! That’s what Caroline did for Kathleen, by creating a Match.com account for her bestie…and finding Nick. Although Kathleen wasn’t keen on meeting anyone online, she promised Caroline that she would meet her friend’s boyfriend-material pick, but she couldn’t have known that she and her Match match would end up talking for hours on their first date, until the restaurant shut down, and eventually become an inseparable couple. Fast forward to Kathleen and Nick’s classic-with-a-modern-twist tent wedding, where 210 of their loved ones gathered to witness them tie the knot, then danced the night away beneath a bountiful floral chandelier. Their palette of blush, pink, white and yellow brought to life their vision of a springtime garden wedding, while late-night favors of Whataburger honey-chicken biscuits brought nourishment to guests upon their departure. Thanks, Adam Nyholt, for the lovely photos!
