Your groomsmen have a crucial, involved job. They plan the bachelor party, help set up hotel or venue accommodations, assist with the wedding attire, and overall, just ensure that your wedding day goes off without a hitch. Without them, your big day would not go nearly as smoothly, so it’s important to get them a good gift to recognize their efforts and recognize how lucky you are to have them by your side, in this and in life. A little lost at what to buy? We’ve put together a short guide to help you find the perfect fit.
Personal but Practical
Men’s tastes span the spectrum, but something practical and usable is always a great idea when you don’t know what to get. And if you’re worried a “practical” gift will be too cold or impersonal, don’t be. There are plenty of gifts where the useful and the thoughtful can intersect. Full groomsmen gift box and groomsmen gift sets are a great example of this, including everything from bottle openers to socks to sunglasses to mugs and more. This flask set also definitely fits the bill thanks to its usability and lovely personalization options. If you are feeling extra generous, a nice bottle of whiskey to go along with it would take this gift to the next level.
For those with real gentlemen as their groomsmen, presents should no doubt have a certain level of sophistication and class to match. Pocket watches are a good match, timelessly elegant while still functional. This model is a particularly good option with a handsome skeleton design and sturdy construction. Not really in line with your groomsmen’s styles? A personalized cheeseboard might be, especially for the guys who love to entertain. This particular board swivels into a tiered server and incorporates plenty of storage for serving tools, making it great for big parties as well as small get-togethers.
Do you have a wedding party mainly comprised of the most fashion forward people you know? Gift something a little dapper and stylish is an absolute must, then. Wooden watches should be at the top of the list thanks to their trendiness, versatility, and wide range of styles. For those who love all things masculine, modern, and minimalist, this ebony groomsmen watch will be a great fit. Classic, suave, and low-key sound more like your groomsmen? Gift them this dark sandalwood watch to tick all the boxes. Accessory sets can also be a great fashion forward wedding gift option! Try this wood bow tie with matching pocket square men's cufflinks set for a handsome matching wood bow tie, lapel pin, cufflinks, and pocket square that will look great on everyone.
Good gift giving means knowing your audience. If your audience happens to be made of thinkers, creatives, academics, or similar, then your perfect groomsmen gifts should take that into account. Something too generic and typical is probably not the best bet here. Instead, try something a little more specifically tailored like a great journal. For something handmade, simple, and nostalgia-inducing, this vintage leather journal is a quality option. With 240 unlined pages and a compact design, its also great for writing or drawing on the go. A genuine leather messenger bag can also make a great gift, giving your groomsmen plenty of space to pack around books, papers, and any daily necessities.
