The 5 Awesome Groomsmen Flasks in 2018

It can be pretty hard to find the right gifts for your groomsmen. You don’t want to get something predictable or boring and you want to make them as personal as you can. It’s always a good idea to try to find something that they’ll actually use beyond the reception, too. That’s why a flask is a perfect choice. Fill it with your favorite liquor on your wedding day and your boys will be set. Plus, it’s a safe bet that they’ll find plenty of use for it in the weeks and years to come.

We found five of the best personalized flasks on the market today to help you in your search for the perfect groomsmen gift for your crew. The best part is, they can all be personalized so you can really get something that is made for each and every one of your friends. There’s quite a variety here! From rustic to modern you’ll be surprised by how many kinds of personalized flasks there are to choose from to create the perfect gift for your wedding day. We even found some kits that include shot glasses so you and your buddies can have a private toast after you’ve said, “I do.”

1. Rustic Brown Flask in Brown Leatherette Gift Box

Engraved Leather Flask

We love the rustic, old-fashioned look of these silver hip flasks or engraved flasks wrapped in worn brown leatherette. It has an old-fashioned, rustic look while still looking smooth, polished, and clean to make it the perfect gift. This is a set that also includes two shot glasses and comes with a funnel for easy filling.

The gift box is really nice, too. It’s the kind of packaging that’s just as nice as the gift that came inside it, something they will want to keep on their mantel or dresser for years to come. It’s made of the same brown rustic leatherette that covers the flask and has precise, even cream color stitching that echoes that of the flask as well. 

The great thing about this set is that it’s highly customizable. You can get both the flask and the gift box engraved. Plus, you get a lot of space to work with so you can add more than just their name. Make your best man’s gift extra special or have one made just for the father of the bride. There are eight different fonts to choose from so you’re sure to find just the right one for your wedding party.

2. Game Boy Personalized Flask

Game Boy Flask

It would be difficult to find someone who either didn't have one of these or at least played on a friend's. The Game Boy was one of the most iconic electronics in history. It packed 8-bits of video gaming glory into a handheld size. Now that same iconic design holds your 8 ounces of hooch. Coincidence? We didn't think so either.

What's even better is each of your boys can have their name on their new favorite handheld device. The only possible downside of the Game Boy flask is after seeing it you may want the real thing. 

3. Daylor Engraved Leather Wrapped Stainless Steel Hip Flask 

Black Flask

This flask from Daylor has a very classic, upscale look. The flask itself is made of stainless steel and holds 8 ounces of liquid. It’s wrapped in black leather that’s expertly stitched and creates a very clean look. A small, silver rectangle on the bottom right-hand corner of the flask can be engraved with your groomsmen’s initials.

The set also comes with a small funnel for easy filling. The gift box is black and lined with a black, satin-like material that adds to the classy feel of the flask. It’s a solid piece that looks great and holds a nice amount of liquor. This is definitely one that your friends will find a use for long after the big event is over.

4. Salty Old Bastard Flask

Patina Flask

These flasks from Sneerwell are for those looking for something a little different from your traditional flask. Each flask is created through a controlled patina process by a husband and wife team based in Denver. The flask is completed with a hand-etched design. No two flasks are the same so yours will be truly one-of-a-kind. 

Each flask holds 6 ounces of your favorite whiskey or other liquor and comes in a gilded gold foil drawer pull box and elegant letterpress hang tag. Our suggestion is to order early because these flasks are produced in small batches.

5. Steel Flask Gift Box Set

Flask Gift Set

Last up is this awesome flask and shot glasses set from Groomsmen Central. It’s a silver flask that measures 4.25 x 3.5 inches, the perfect size to slide into any pocket. It holds 6 ounces and comes with 4 shot glasses that hold 1.5 ounces each. They also include a small funnel for easy filling.

The flask and the heavy cardstock gift box can both be engraved. With 4 lines of text, you can go the traditional route of name, title, and wedding date or make each gift really unique by adding your buddy’s favorite quote or something appropriate for each groomsman for a gift they’ll keep using well after the reception is over. The gift box has 4 lines of engraving available, too. Plus, there are different fonts to choose from.

There are a lot of flasks on the market today but these are the five best flasks for your wedding party. One of these is sure to bring a smile to your groomsmen's faces but also be a gift they use long after your wedding day.
