When it comes to groomsmen gifts, it's easy to go basic and leave the creativity for your bridesmaids gifts (and let's face it, men can be hard to shop for). And as much as we love the idea of giving something to the dudes that is part of the wedding itself (a tie or pocket square that they'll wear the day-of for example), it's fun to give them something they'll use more often than just on a special occasion, something that they can enjoy long after the after-party has wrapped up and the last celebratory cigar has been smoked. Because let's face it, as much as you might love and adore your groomsmen, they sometimes miss the level of attention paid to the bridesmaids—but they certainly deserve to be thanked!
So where do you find presents that are unique and modern that you'll feel proud giving the guys? Etsy, of course! But once again, we know how overwhelming this extensive marketplace can be—just searching for "groomsmen gift" will yield thousands of results, which doesn't exactly help narrow down your options.
So, we did the work for you and found 10 of our favorite groomsmen gifts on Etsy—ideas that range from the expected (cufflinks, a tie) but with a new and unique twist, to the more unexpected (a man candle, a set of Star Wars whiskey glasses) to inspire what you give the guys.
Star Wars. Whiskey Decanter Set
