They’re your boys, your best buds, the guys you’ve had so many adventures with. And now, they’re your groomsmen about to send you off on your next adventure—which may be the biggest one yet of your life.
The point of a groomsmen gift is to thank them for the work they’ve done in helping get you down the aisle. All that planning of the bachelor party (remember the bachelor party? No, nothing?) Well, it was epic and took a lot of effort even if you can’t recall a darn thing. These are also the guys who are going to be talking you down, calming your nerves and making sure you utter those two little words—“I do.” So, think about the type of gift you want to get your groomsmen. No one knows them better.
How Much Should I Spend?
This really depends on your budget. And since there are no hard and fast rules, it’s better to focus on buying a groomsmen gift that reflects the interests of you and your buddies. Does the group love a nice cigar? Get them each a top-drawer box to share at the reception. Maybe everyone has an appreciation for aged Scotch. If so, get them each a great bottle they can enjoy later (post wedding, not pre!)
Great Gifts for Groomsmen
Other ideas you might consider are stylish cufflinks, flasks with the wedding date engraved, a manicure grooming set or a monogramed cooler.
This is going to be a day to remember, show your boys how much they mean to you with an awesome groomsmen gift.
