Before you say “I do,” you need to say “thank you” to the men who helped you and your groom on the big day. Giving your groomsmen a gift shows you care about them and appreciate having them play such a special role at your wedding.
But deciding on the right gift can be difficult. What kind of gift will they like? You want it to be something they actually want and will use, but also something special and thoughtful.
If you’re struggling to come up with ideas, we’ve got you covered. Here are five of our favorite gift ideas for groomsmen:
1. Cuff Links
Let’s face it. Sometimes the men needed a little bit of helping getting cleaned up. Help your groomsmen look their best for the wedding with a pair of cufflinks. Cufflinks give a tuxedo or suit a more formal look and make any groomsmen look sleek. Plus, the next time they have a special occasion to attend they’ll be ready to wear them again. Want to take it a step further? Go for cufflinks with a monogram for that extra personalized touch.
Spending a lot of money on your groomsmen isn’t required, but if you’re looking to wow them, a watch may be a good option. Instead of giving all the groomsmen the same one, consider putting some thought into it and choosing different styles for each individual groomsmen. They’ll appreciate the personalization and love the extra time you put into picking out the gift.
3. Money Clip
If you want to give your groomsmen something practical, a money clip makes a great option. While a wallet may be something they’d want to pick out on their own, your groomsmen are sure to appreciate a money clip. Money clips are a simple and sleek wallet alternative that looks stylish. You could even get them personalized to make it even more special.
The groomsmen are there to give your groom a proper send off before he ties the knot. Why not help them toast him the right way with a flask? A leather flask is the perfect manly, bachelor-style gift to give. A flask is a classic gift that your groomsmen are sure to appreciate and will definitely want to use – perhaps even on the big day!
5. Engraved Beer Mug
For groomsmen that enjoy drinking, a special beer mug is a great gift. Go for one that’s engraved with their initials to make it personalized, or with your wedding date to turn it into a memorable keepsake. You could even choose “best man” or “groomsman” mugs. No matter what you choose, whenever your groomsmen use them, they’ll be sure to think of you and how much they enjoyed being a part of your big day.
