gifts, gifts for groomsmen or ushers and the best man are usually last on a very long
list of to-do's for the future bride and groom. Even though it's
usually last minute, you want to give something that expresses
your gratitude for their friendship and moral support.
do you start looking for great groomsmen or best man gifts?
and all you're likely to find are the usual Swiss army knives,
whiskey flasks or, worse yet, personalized cuff links. Try thinking
outside the box and you'll soon discover the secret to the best
groomsmen gifts. That is, search for generally great
guy gifts or something you know each of them will like.
soon discover your chances getting better and better for finding
just the right token of appreciation for your favorite groomsmen
and ones that don't necessarily have to be wedding-themed:
tankards - These have become increasingly popular as an
answer to the old-fashioned whiskey flask and are usually available
in pewter, ceramic or crystal. Make it personal by having them
engraved with each groomsmen's names or initials.
Make it fun by creating
custom baskets of
great guy gifts.
gift baskets - Not the usual hearts-and-flowers kind, but
think about a small duffel bag filled with things that they
may individually appreciate - like electronic gadgets for the
computer geek; micro-brewery samples for the beer aficionado;
snacks for the junk food junkie; or a collection of great action
movies for the film buff.
kits - Even if some guys don't aspire to become gourmet
chefs, the outdoor barbecue grill is often as much their domain
as the remote control! Feed their favorite backyard hobby with
barbecue gift kits that usually include tongs, spatulas, knives,
sauces and marinades, and other outdoor cooking paraphernalia.
Look online for groomsmen gift shops that will provide special
packaging and add customized initials on request.
out - While the best man and groomsmen traditionally foot
the bill for the bachelor
party, the groom can return the favor by treating all his
groomsmen to a night on the town, even if it's their favorite
bowling alley or sports bar.
tripper - Make it a fishing charter, a day at the races, tickets
to a sporting event, or private paintball session, or think
about other activities the whole group might enjoy that will
provide lots of laughs and memorable photo ops.
