If the groom is an adventure junkie, you do not need to go think beyond that personality trait when looking for engagement gifts for him. You just need to gift him anything he can use on his trips like trekking shoes, bags and tents or boots. Personally, we love the option of trekking boots. If you do too, make sure the stitching on them is seamless and they are not too heavy. We are sure a groom that has a passion for travelling will love this gesture.
A Smart 3 Piece Suit

A man can never have too many suits. If the groom you are buying gift for is a businessperson, we think he will like it. If he does not own any and loves casual wear, he should definitely own one now that he is married and needs to come across as an adult! You can get him the complete package with the tie and pocket square. If your budget allows, go for a brooch as well. Engagement gifts for him that involves clothing can be tricky to get right, make sure you have his sizes beforehand.

Millennials love clicking pictures and capturing them for forever. While the groom is getting hitched, you can click his pictures with his new GoPro camera that you are going to gift him! Jokes aside, we think that technology is the answer for everything. We can think of so many technical engagement gifts for him like headphones and speakers. With this, he can be able to click live pictures with the smallest action camera ever! It is easy to use and he can take it on his honeymoon as well.
A Case for His Watches

Every person has something that they love to collect. If you know that your friend collects watches, get him a watchcase in which he can store all his watches safely. He can take it while travelling or just keep it on his vanity. Try to pick one that has more compartments on both sides so that he can store more. If you think this is not enough, get him a watch as well.
