How to Be Practical in Getting Groomsmen Gifts
Weddings are not only important to you and your future spouse. They are also important to your friends and family. That’s why you want to show your appreciation. It’s tradition to give your groomsmen gifts for standing next to you during this next phase of your life, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make your gifts practical.
Here are some ideas on how you can give great gifts to your groomsmen while still being practical.
Ties and Other Wedding Accessories
One of the worst parts of being a groomsman is having to dress up. Most weddings require a specific attire and may even require the wedding party to wear exact colors or items.
Do yourself and your groomsmen a favor, and get them all the same tie and other accessories they may need for the big day. They will thank you because they won’t have to buy it themselves, and your future spouse will love how everyone looks in the pictures!
Weddings are a celebration. Celebrations are usually well lubricated. If you and your groomsmen are known to throw a few back, it’s a good idea to give them something to store their booze on the big day.
Get them a flask so that they can sip on something before the reception. You can even get the flasks engraved if you want. Pro tip: don’t just put your groomsmen’s names on the inscription. Be more creative!
You want your groomsmen to smell great on the big day. Get them some new cologne. Ask each groomsman what their favorite scent is, or give them all your favorite. They will be able to wear it at the wedding, and the bridesmaids may even notice.
Traditionally, the groomsmen cover the cost of the bachelor party. Do your groomsmen a favor and cover the cost of the bachelor party to show your appreciation.
Whether it’s a night at a local bar or a trip to Vegas, pick up the tab as much as they’ll let you. You get to have the bachelor party you want, and you get to give a great gift at the same time. It’s a win-win.
Most weddings take place in spring or summer, and those seasons tend to be rather sunny. If you are having an outdoor wedding, it’s a great idea to give your groomsmen sunglasses so that they can face the sun without hurting their eyes.
Having everyone wear matching sunglasses can also make for some amazing pictures. You may even want to get a pair for you and your significant other too!
Even if you and your groomsmen don’t typically smoke cigars, this is the perfect occasion to light one up. Supply the cigars for you and your groomsmen.
You can smoke them all together during the reception. If you and your wedding party do typically smoke cigars, you can even consider getting them a nice cigar cutter or a humidor.
Bottle of Liquor
One of the coolest groomsmen gift ideas is simple: a bottle of liquor. Get a nice bottle of wine or a high-end whiskey or tequila for everyone in your wedding party. You can even all enjoy a shot or a drink together when you smoke your cigars!
Only the Best for Your Buds
Getting married is one of the most important moments of your life. It’s a blessing to have your best guys by your side. Make sure to show your appreciation with gifts that they will want.
It doesn’t stop at the gifts, though. Show them a good time at the wedding, and don’t forget the open bar!
