Best Man and Groomsmen Gift Ideas That They'll Actually Use

Favors & Gifts

Thank your right-hand man, as well as the rest of your groomsmen, for always having your back with a thoughtful gift they'll actually use and appreciate. Check out seven of our favorite ideas for groomsmen gifts:

Booze and Personalized Luggage Tags (above): Gift your best man and groomsmen with bottles of their favorite whiskey paired with luxe leather luggage tags stamped with their initials.

His Favorite Things: Fill a cigar box with your best man's favorite things: a favorite book, his favorite bourbon, a cigar, slim notebooks, and wedding-day accessories like his tie and socks.

A New Clothing Staple: If your best guy is the kind of cool, athletic dude known to pair margaritas with a strip steak, then he'll love a gift from Johnnie-O. One of our favorite groomsmen gifts from the west coast prep clothing company is this topper (above) — it's guaranteed to be your best man's go-to cap for a round of golf, an afternoon ball game, or paired with shades and a Bloody Mary for those post-bachelor party mornings.

Leather Dopp Kit: Another gift your right-hand man will put to good use after the wedding: a monogrammed leather dopp kit for his future trips. Fill it with mini bottles of booze, a flask, and items he'll use on the wedding day, like a lint roller and colorful socks.

Beer-Brewing Kit: For something more fun and unexpected, give your best man and groomsmen an oak-barrel beer-brewing kit so they can create their own brews at home.

Booze and Bar Accessories: Your groom's best pal will certainly appreciate a full-size bottle of his favorite whiskey, paired with bar accessories he can use at home.

Personalized Suspenders: A luxe pair of leather suspenders — custom-made with his monogram — is a gift your best man will actually use after the wedding.
