Calling all grooms: how will you thank your best guys for supplying endless support, unsolicited marriage advice and a killer bachelor party? Groomsmen gifts are a great opportunity to give them something they can cherish way beyond the special day.
The trick to winning the gift game is choosing something that’s practical, complete with a personal touch that makes it unique to your wedding day. That way, they’re bound to actually use the gift – and think fondly of you and yours when they do.
Here’s some inspiration to help you find unique groomsmen gifts that suit your fabulous friends:
Cheers to a special day
You’ve shared many a drink together, so commemorate your friendship with classy accessories. Think glasses, decanters, bottle openers, coasters, whiskey stones, stainless steel ice cubes and cocktail kits. Throw in the beer, wine or spirits to match the accessories if you really love them. You can also have the barware accessories or bottles monogrammed for truly custom groomsmen gifts.
If you tend to crack open cold ones when you’re watching the game together, consider gifting your groomsmen beer glasses featuring their favorite team’s logo. Gift them beer and accessories from a local brewery for a personal touch, or maybe choose wine that’s bottled near the wedding location.
Unless you all have the same drink of choice, you may want to cater each gift to the recipient’s preferences. If any of your groomsmen don’t partake in adult beverages, you can also give them gourmet coffee, tea or food gift sets.
Here’s to a well-groomed crew
Every man has a signature look, whether he rocks a full beard, masters the stubble or keeps it clean. Support their grooming routine with a beard care or shaving kit, and give it the finishing touch with a suave travel toiletries bag to house all of the products and tools when they’re on-the-go. If you want to go the custom groomsmen gifts route, you can choose to monogram the bags, or even go for personalized razors.
For a gift that really keeps giving, you can set them up with subscriptions for shave clubs. Alternatively, go for the one-time full experience and book appointments for you and the guys to get professional shaves and haircuts in the days leading up to the wedding. Not only is it a great way to spend time with your favorite friends, but it also ensures that you’ll all look spiffy when the special day arrives.
Complete the look
The suits are all set, but you can incorporate matching accessories into your groomsmen gift, too. Socks, cufflinks, belts and shoes are perfect ways to complete their looks, and of course, you can customize them with monogrammed initials or the wedding date. Not only will these accessories look fabulous on the special day, but your groomsmen can also use them after the wedding.
Commemorate friendships that last a lifetime with custom Timex watches, complete with a free personalized engraving. Your unique message may be the groomsmen names, wedding date or short quote. Plus, you can match the watch colors and finishes to your wedding looks.
If you’re getting married outdoors, gift your groomsmen a suave pair of sunglasses. Alternatively, if you’re planning a destination wedding, supply your special guys with duffel bags or suitcases for a stylish, functional and long-lasting groomsmen gift.
With the right gift, you can show your groomsmen how happy you are to have them by your side.
