24 Awesome Gifts for Your Groomsmen
When it comes to the guys, classic gifts will never disappoint. While they're always happy with the basics—think: tools, money and tie clips, shaving sets, flasks, and gadgets—don't let that stop you from getting creative when picking out presents for your groomsmen. After all, the guys in your wedding party have been with you through thick and thin, and now they're planning the bachelor party, preparing toasts, and standing up with you as you exchange vows. They do it all without being asked twice. Why? Because they love you—even if they have silly ways of showing it.
Honor their humor and support with a token of thanks in the form of groomsmen gifts. Whether you're shopping for gifts for the wedding day or the holidays, we've sourced several seriously special items (and some traditional ones, too) that work for groomsmen and best men alike. With a shaving serum, bluetooth speakers, the perfect duffel bag, and bar cart upgrades, there's something here that'll make even your gruffest groomsmen crack a grin.
These groomsmen gift ideas range from practical to indulgent but they all have one thing in common: Every guy will absolutely love them. And since there's so many things he'll actually use—like a whiskey stones, a great backpack, and Swiss army knife—you can consider shelling out for these gifts money well spent. Here, thoughtful, quirky, and guy-approved gifts that every groom's best friends will get a kick out of.
