Make Your Groomsmen Gifts As Individual As They Are
Who made up the rule that groomsmen gifts have to be the same for each groomsman? When everything else about your wedding day is unique to you and your fiancé, how about making each gift you give unique to the loved ones you have standing at your side. Give some thought to what kind of guys your best pals are, and plan a gift accordingly. For the Sportsman If he never misses a game, if his only change of wardrobe involves switching teams when a season ends, if people come to him for advice on the office sports pool, this man will be especially touched by a groomsman gift that feeds his obsession. How about a personalized stadium blanket or cooler to bring to the game ? Monogrammed baseball bat or chip bowls, beer mugs with his favorite team, or stadium radio/binoculars (where you can watch the game live and hear the local play-by-play at the same time) will have him thinking of you every time he yells, “Booyah!” For the Urban Professional This man is on the go, making the world go round with his stock trades, contract negotiations or international deals. Show him you care with leather—in the form of an embossed briefcase, a card holder or a money clip. Travel items would also be especially appreciated, such as a leather encased travel clock, jewelry box or grooming kit.
A smooth rich leather surface on any item adds a mark of distinction that your groomsman can be proud to display from the board room to the bedroom. For the College Buddy Lots a memories between the two of you? Then how about a college-themed photo album filled with all those shots neither of you want anyone else to see? You’ll laugh together remembering old times when you were both single, and appreciate even more still being friends as you start your families. A case of your favorite libation from back then, along with tickets to the next home game will sweeten the deal and set you on the road to creating even more memories. For the Family Man He may be way ahead of you here, with a wife and kids already—and he’s loving every minute of it. Show him you admire his achievement by giving family-oriented items that enable him to spend more quality time with those he loves.
Tickets to sporting events, ski resort reservations or camping equipment will be fun for the whole family, and he’ll enjoy it even more knowing it came from you. For the Rebel Is his Harley his second home? Is his hair longer than his significant other’s? Are the tattoos outnumbering his teeth? Consider distinctive gifts such as a leather poker set for late nights with the gang or an embossed shoe-shine kit for his leather boots. Gift certificates to music stores or motorcycle shops would go over well, along with personalized silver or gold jewelry. Have him roaring down the road in style. For the Never-Without-a-Book Guy The bestseller list is made by guys like these. Fascinated with the world around him, he stays abreast of all the current trends through reading the latest from the world’s most well-known authors. It might be hard to get this guy a book that he doesn’t already have, but you can be sure to please with a generous gift certificate to his favorite local or online bookstore. Include wedding themed nameplates for adhering in the books when he gets them, and it’ll be like you’re as up-to-the-minute as he is. For the Metrosexual Hey, we all know that grooming is essential for a groomsman. But some groomsmen take this duty more seriously than others with sharp attention to detail every day of the year.
How about a luxurious facial kit in a travel bag, an elegant sterling silver shaving brush, or an engraved manicure set? Just be sure you look as good as he does on your wedding day. The whole point of groomsmen gifts is the same as the point of your friendships—have fun with them. You can’t go wrong when you show them how important to you they are with a unique groomsmen gift that’s just for them.
