Status update: Married. That’s the message Mark Zuckerberg sent out hours after marrying his girlfriend of eight years. Zuckerberg, the 28 year-old who took Facebook public at $104 billion a couple weeks ago, tied the knot with Priscilla Chan, a recent medical school graduate, in a surprise ceremony that to place in the backyard of their Palo Alto home.
The approximate 100 guests, who initially thought they were invited to celebrate Pricilla’s graduation, were treated to a beautiful but low-key ceremony and reception. Mexican food and sushi were served from favorite restaurants and the splurge of the night was that Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day provided musical entertainment. We don’t know if there was a best man or other wedding attendants, but who cares – the couple’s dog, Beast, walked the bride down the aisle!
So what does one get a filthy-stinking-rich guy as a gift for the groom? That’s no easy feat, since Zuckerberg can buy anything he darn well pleases himself. So since it would be impossible to impress this type with a new tech gadget or trendy gear, the best route to go is to present a gift for the groom that is personalized with heartfelt sentiments. This way, the groom gift will be one-of-a-kind and unique to the recipient . . . and that’s something you can’t put a price on.
For millionaire and billionaire types (as well as all of us lowly thousandaire folks), we suggest personalized pen and writing gifts sets so that he can keep writing out those money making ideas. While it is low-tech to actually put real pen to paper, it does have a dashing, old-school charm that is becoming popular again with even the most ga-ga over cutting-edge gadgets. Another good choice in groom gifts (and even groomsmen gifts) is a personalized shaving set. Every guy, no matter how loaded, needs to take care of his whiskers at least a couple times a week if not daily. Just the sight of one of our shaving sets sitting on the countertop will remind even the busiest man to slow down and enjoy the process of gentlemanly grooming.
