Choosing the perfect gift for your groomsmen depends solely on the type of guys they are. Whether you have a fitness enthusiast or the corporate hustler, get ideas from this list of sixteen gift recommendations.
The Sporty Guy
Mini Baseball Bat
What better way to celebrate America’s favorite pastime than with a mini baseball bat. This is ideal if your groomsmen happen to be your childhood friends. Go down memory lane with this sentimental gift. Add a personal touch by having their names engraved or printed on the bat.
Hey, gambling is a sport, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. If you and your groomsmen enjoy a good game of poker, a card case will surely keep your beloved deck safe and sound.
The Party Guy
If your groomsmen have no aversion toward drinking liquor, you might want to consider some aged whiskey or rum as your gift. This option is a bit expensive, but if you can afford it, no one’s stopping you.
If you’re going to be gifting expensive liquor, it only makes sense that you give an accompanying decanter as well. A decanter filled with whiskey is a welcome addition to your groomsmen’s home bar. Make them fill like a king with this touch of sophistication.
Bottle openers are the unsung heroes of any boys’ night out. How else are you going to kick the party off if you can’t open your bottles of beer? It’s simple and straightforward. What more can you ask for?
Everyone knows that the secret to a good cocktail is how well it is shaken. Make sure to give your groomsmen the proper artillery with a steel cocktail shaker. All that there’s left to do is for them to wow the ladies with their bartending skills.
Cuban cigars are notorious for being prestigious items that carry a hefty price tag. In the US, part of the allure is that they’re extremely hard to get because of the embargo. If you do get your hands on one or a few pieces, this will surely wow your groomsmen.
The Dapper Guy
A wristwatch is a staple in any gentleman’s wardrobe. Yes, it tells the time, but it’s also a statement that the guy wearing it is a confident and collected person. Looking at a wristwatch certainly has more effect than checking one’s phone multiple times.
Collecting limited edition watches is a hobby for some men. If you don’t have it in you to splurge on a luxury item, the next best alternative is a leather watchcase. This is perfect for your groomsmen who already have a watch collection or are just starting one.
A gentleman doesn’t need to show off that he has a lot of dough, making slim leather wallets a top choice. It’s discreet and convenient. Your groomsmen can easily get cash and tuck away their wallets in a seamless fashion.
It’s truly the accessories that pull a look together, and cuff links are one of the more understated ones. In fact, some people even consider cuff links as a piece of jewelry for men. You can also go the extra mile and have these personalized with the groomsman’s initials.
Printed or bold-colored socks are a good way to add personality to a strictly formal outfit. You can have your groomsmen wear them on the wedding day, which would look really good for a group photo.
Men also have hygiene needs. This is most apparent when they travel out of time. Some men are really particular with the products they use especially if they adhere to a specific routine. A toiletry bag is therefore a welcome sight for the cosmopolitan guy.
The duffel bag was made for the groomsman who’s always on the go. It’s easy to lug around compared to a trolley bag, and it doesn’t look that bad either.
With the hundreds of bags in an airport, how can a groomsman efficiently know which one is his? Luggage tags are your answer. It’s a simple gift, but if it’s a destination wedding, it will go nicely with everything else.
