While the options for bridesmaid and maid of honor gifts appear to be endless, you may find the picks to be slightly slimmer when it comes to groomsmen and best man gifts. In fact, we won’t blame you if you’re at a total loss for what to get your best man.

No need to stress! We did all the work and found the best gifts that your best buddy will flip for. Whatever your budget and no matter his style, you’re bound to find a present below that says, “Thanks for everything, man,” as well as, “PLEASE don’t forget the rings.” 

Even if it’s just a thoughtful card, a best man gift—no matter how simple or inexpensive—is a great way to thank your #1 dude for his consistent support and friendship, and for planning one hell of a bachelor party. Is your best man is the grill master of the group? Gift him a personalized set of grilling tools. You can also help him out with his wedding-day attire with a tie, cufflinks, or classic watch. 

Here, our top picks for best man gifts.
