Groomsmen Gift Ideas
If you’re like me, you might find the men in your life a little tricky to shop for, so to suddenly have a whole gaggle of fellows — like your groomsmen — to get gifts for, your shopping tasks can seem even more daunting. For my own wedding, we gave the groomsmen ties, which is a fairly common practice, but as I think about it more, it would have also been nice to give another gift that wasn’t completely just about their prescribed wedding attire. Some of these gifts can definitely be worn on the day of the wedding, but also have some personalization that will make them a treasured gift for years to come!
In particular, I love those monogrammed socks which were at Etsy find from Volunteer Monograms. Savanna, the owner, also makes some pretty awesome gifts for your bridesmaids like these cute monogrammed caps and headbands. They are fun for putting your hair back when you’re getting ready, and a cool variation on the bridesmaids getting ready coordinated photo ! OK, back to those socks! While they can be a fun wedding attire addition (I always love it when the groomsmen are wearing fun socks in pictures!) but also are a nice, personalized touch. They are also very reasonably priced and can be purchased as a single pair or in whole groups of 6, 8, 10, etc.
The other gift I thought would be really different is #4, the BBQ sauce of the month club. They offer 3 month gift packs and if you don’t have BBQ lovers, you can really pick any kind of club including wine, salsa, hot sauce, bacon, or lobster! I’ve never done it myself, but it seems to be a fun way to give a gift that is truly tailored to each gent’s taste, and a gift that keeps on giving!
You can work a bit of personalization into everything if you try. Marks + Graham, the company that makes the keyfobs and card holders specializes in personalized gifts. For instance, that fish belt from Tuckernuck is great if your groomsmen are your husband-to-be’s fishing buddies, but belts, socks and caps come in lost of other prints that might have meaning to your groom’s group of guys. Tuckernuck is another great place for this kind of gift, and they have a whole selection dedicated to groomsmen.
I hope these suggestions give you some ideas of what you’d like to give to your groomsmen; and you might have noticed that these would all make fun gifts for Father’s Day if you’re on that gift-giving search right now. Happy giving!
