Tradition holds that brides and grooms should exchange gifts the night before their nuptials or the morning of the ceremony (sorry, your shiny new rings don’t count as gifts). Leave the flasks for the groomsmen, and give your Mr. or Mrs. a wedding-worthy timepiece to wear on the big day and beyond. Bonus points if you get the watch engraved with their initials, your wedding date, or a personal message.
