Before you delve too deep into this, make sure your groom is nearby. This is mostly for him, but in the event you’ll be doing the shopping for/with him, you might want to pay attention, too! Your bridal party has spent a huge amount of time, energy, and effort to ensure that when your wedding day arrives, it is utterly epic. Not just the bridesmaids, either, the groomsmen do their fare share of supporting, as well. At the very least, they’ve had to have done enough (perhaps with bachelor party planning?) to warrant a gift that says “thank you.” The trouble is, finding the perfect groomsmen gift can definitely add some undue stress to a time when you already have a lot going on. Those last few months of planning are certifiably killer. So, while you’re navigating your way through all the potential presents the internet has to offer, we’ve compiled a list of what we think are the top five most important gift qualities to keep in mind for your guys. We may have gotten some help from LMTLS Watches, but only because they know a thing or two about going outside of the lines to ensure you get a good gift.
Guys and girls both do trends, but is it wrong if we say girls do them better? Our suggestion? Don’t fall victim to trends, or else your gift will soon be resting at the bottom of a drawer with old Livestrong bracelets, trucker hats, and puka shell necklaces. Instead, find something classic, timeless, and versatile that can go with your groomsmen's wedding attire, but can also be rocked for years to come.
Depending on the size of your wedding party, you could easily find yourself picking up 10 or more gifts - and that can add up real fast 💸💸💸. That said, you don’t need to dredge through the dollar bin to find something affordable, either. On average, you should expect to spend between $50 and $100 per groomsman, which really isn’t bad. Plus, sooo many places will also offer bulk discounts, so don’t be afraid to ask. Speaking up can save you up to 50 percent!
Weddings have a lot of moving parts, so the last thing you want to do is waste time when you have crazy amounts of stuff to get done. That’s why you need to focus on finding yourself a groomsmen gift that’s easy-to-buy and won’t arrive all-messed-up. One and done! Go with a company that guarantees their product and has a hassle-free, quick order process. And we might know where you can score precisely that... just keep reading.
This one’s a biggie. Everyone loves to customize, but it can add a lot of time and extra expense to the process. It’s also a PIA to have to get all that personal ordering information from your groomsmen. Just listening to my husband talk about unanswered group texts to his brother’s groomsmen gives me a clue about how challenging guys can be with communication (if I didn't have an idea before 😉). To avoid all of the back and forth, it’s smart to opt for something one-size-fits-all - like a watch (maybe even one with a statement-making, super sexy hardwood bezel…), tie, or other accessory. Doing so doesn’t make it any less special, it just makes ordering that much less of a nightmare.
Okay, yes, with guys, no-brainer gift selection and a seamless ordering process is paramount, but you still want to be able to give something meaningful to the men who you’re proud to stand beside at your wedding. At the end of the day, this group of guys deserves something as special as they are, so you’ll need to take the time to do your research and find something rad with a story that makes all your guys want to bro hug the s*** out of you.
