If your bachelor party was a success and your favorite guys are still standing by your side, chances are likely that you’ll want to show your appreciation for the time and resources they’ve put into your wedding. They are, after all, your biggest support system and deserve so much more than just the extra recognition they’ll receive on your special day.
But, with so many groomsmen gift options available, it’s important to find something that is customizable, practical, and, most importantly, meaningful to thank them for being one of your best friends or most-valued family members.
We’ve rounded up six fantastic spots with products that are guaranteed to put a smile on your crew’s faces. In fact, we’re so confident with these options that you won’t even need to ask for a gift receipt. Check out some of our top picks below.
Think outside of the box by buying your groomsmen a subscription box to Bespoke Post, inarguably one of the best box memberships tailored to men. Simply purchase gift cards where they will be able to sign up, preview each month’s box details, and then customize, switch, or skip what they’d like to receive. Boxes include anything from outdoor essentials and coffee accessories to skincare products, jewelry, and even adult coloring books—you literally can’t go wrong.
Personalization is appreciation in its highest form and Etsy is the authority when it comes to custom-designed mementos like monogrammed toiletry bags and engraved whiskey decanters. The site, which spotlights the talents of creative entrepreneurs across the country, has even organized a Groomsmen Gifts page that highlights clever keepsakes for the special gentlemen in your life. It’s also the perfect destination for buying fashion items in bulk like socks, sunglasses, and bow ties that will guarantee your entire wedding party looks uniform and stylish.
The Man Registry
Developed in response to “the wedding industry as a whole [not] paying enough attention to grooms,” The Man Registry has quickly established itself as one of the leading wedding sites for men—and not just with its witty blog, chock-full of helpful how-to's, checklists, and guides, but also its wide array of gift ideas for groomsmen. Helpful subcategories include Boxes & Sets, Last-Minute Gifts, Cheap (Under $30), and Groomsmen Watches that showcase ideas for any type of groom on any type of budget. We’re big fans of these personalized craft beer coolers and mini Bourbon barrels, as well as these handsome canvas and leather duffle bags that can be used for the next groomsman-turned-groom’s bachelor party.
In addition to personalized pillows, mugs, and blankets, why not send a groomsman a collage or oversized photo that captures him on the big day? Shutterfly allows you to special-order any type of picture so that you can have it printed, framed, and presented in a way that celebrates your bestie or family member in his best light. It will also be a wonderful memory of your special day and the significant role he had in executing it. One idea is to print a sentimental photo on a hanging canvas with the wedding date at the bottom. Keep the border color neutral so that your groomsman can easily display it in literally any room of his house.
Gadget Discovery Club
Your groomsmen will have gadgets and gizmos aplenty with a membership to the Gadget Discovery Club. The innovative company allows members to discover and experience some of the latest technology on the market, risk-free, and without having to step into an overcrowded Best Buy or Apple store. And, since technology is something we all use on a daily basis, this gift is equal parts practical and thoughtful, making it a great alternative to the expected, like a cigar box or flask.
Mark & Graham
Timeless, masculine, and stuff your groomsmen will actually use, Mark & Graham offers a beautiful array of gifts for the guy’s guy who likes to drink, play golf, smoke cigars, and channel his inner old Hollywood actor. The Smoked Cocktail Kit is a fantastic option, fusing wood smoke directly into a favorite beverage, while this leather charger roll up is a beautiful, simple, and efficient way to store Airpods, USB drives, and wires. Be sure to also check out their engraved wood offerings, like this striped walnut valet tray that will make a statement in any home office or entryway.
