  • Your groomsmen play an important role in your wedding—but what kind of gift should you get them as a thank you?
  • If your groomsmen enjoy a good cocktail, a bar-related gift (such as a personalized shot glass, whiskey glasses, a decanter, or a hip engraved flask) can be a great option.
  • Personalized cufflinks can help jazz up your groomsmen’s wedding attire.
  • Do your groomsmen love to travel? Gift them a passport holder to accompany them on their travels.
  • If you want to give a more sentimental gift, you can’t go wrong with a photo album (filled with photos of your favorite memories with each groomsman, of course).
  • If you’re at a loss for what kind of gift to give your wedding party, a groomsmen gift box is a solid (and easy) option.

Your groomsmen are some of the most important people in your life—and they’re doing you a solid by being in your wedding party and standing by your side as you say your “I do’s.”

And, while chances are that they don’t expect anything in return (you’re just as important to them, after all), giving them a gift is a nice way to say “thank you” for being a part of your big day.

But, the question is—what do you get them?

Personalized groomsmen gifts are a great way to thank your friend. Let’s take a look at a few groomsmen gift ideas to help you get the creative juices flowing and to find the perfect gift for everyone in your wedding party:

Personalized Whiskey Glasses…

Weddings are a celebration—and for many groomsmen, that celebrating will include a wedding cocktail or two.

Personalized whiskey glasses make a great gift for groomsmen; not only can you toast with the glasses before you all walk down the aisle, but after the wedding celebration is over, they have a set of drink glasses to take home—and every time they enjoy a whiskey, they’ll remember your wedding celebration.

...Or a Personalized Whiskey Decanter

Whiskey glasses are great for drinking whiskey. But, your groomsmen will need somewhere to store their whiskey in between drinks—and that’s why a personalized whiskey decanter makes such a great gift.

Depending on your budget, you can give your groomsmen just the glasses, just the decanter, or gift them both and make it a full set.

Personalized Hip Flask

If you prefer to give your groomsmen a bit of flexibility and mobility with their drink of choice, a personalized hip flask is a great groomsmen gift idea. (Plus, if you give the same hip flask to all your groomsmen—and get one for yourself—it can make for a great wedding photo opportunity).

Personalized Cufflinks

If you want to get your groomsmen a gift that they can enjoy (and wear) on your wedding day, a pair of monogrammed cufflinks is a great way to jazz up their wedding attire and add a personalized touch to their wedding suit. (And, if they have any other weddings coming up—including their own—the cufflinks definitely have re-wear value).

Passport Holder

Are your groomsmen the jet-setting type? If so, a passport holder can make for a great (and useful) groomsmen gift. And, as an added bonus, every time that they collect a new stamp on their passport, they’ll be reminded of all the fun they had at your wedding. (It’ll be kind of like you’re right there traveling with them).

Photo Album

If you want to give your groomsmen a meaningful, sentimental gift, a photo album can be a great way to take a trip down memory lane and revisit all of your favorite memories. And, thanks to digital photo album services, it’s easier than ever to make a completely personalized album for each of your groomsmen (and hopefully include at least one or two embarrassing childhood photos).

Groomsmen Gift Box

Does the thought of choosing a gift for each of your groomsmen stress you out? No worries! There are plenty of companies out there that take the guesswork out of the gift-giving process—courtesy of groomsmen gift boxes.

Groomsmen gift boxes are carefully curated with gifts your groomsmen will love—such as this luxury option from SprezzaBox, which comes packed with items that your groomsmen will need on your wedding day, including a color-coordinated tie, pocket square, and argyle socks (which you can match to your wedding colors), plus a stylish rose gold watch.

The Perfect Gift for Your Wedding Party

When it comes to groomsmen gifts, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach—the perfect gift is going to depend on who your groomsmen are, what they like, and your relationship with them. But, these unique groomsmen gift ideas are a great jumping off point to get your creative juices flowing and to start thinking about what kind of gift would make the biggest impact on your wedding party. No matter your budget for how much to spend on groomsmen gifts, you are bound to find the perfect thank you gift.

And, if you still don’t know what to get your groomsmen (or you don’t have the budget to cover gifts), that’s totally fine. A thank-you card expressing your gratitude for their support on your wedding day can also make the perfect present—because, in the end, it’s the thought that counts, not the actual gift.
