Not a lot of people discuss the gifts that are given to groomsmen. In fact, some of you might get surprised that the groom actually gives out gifts to his closest friends. That is because it has always been the cute trinkets given to the bridesmaids that get the spotlight. Don't worry, though, because we will put "groomsmen gift-giving" right on the map with our ideas for unique groomsmen gifts.

In all honesty, men can be easy to please, especially when the gift came from their buddy. A lot of grooms give out cufflinks, expensive pens, caps, watches, etc. But when you think about it, these gifts, although awesome, do not really represent the type of friendship that they have. These gifts might make them look like a unified front, but they do not show their group dynamics.

What are we talking about? We are pointing towards those things that have a "call to action" to them; things that will be of use not only to the receiver but also to the whole group as well. That is for the reason that they can bond using these gifts, and in the process, increase camaraderie in the group. Hence, in this article, we will run down three unique groomsmen gifts that will surely be useful and fun for your buddies. At the same time, we will give you some tips on how to choose the gifts.

Choosing Groomsmen Gifts: Some Tips

Before we give you our gift suggestions, it is handy to note how you should go about choosing the presents. Do remember that, although the wedding is about you and your fiance, your groomsmen also played a huge part in the culmination of yourself to reach that certain point of your romantic relationship. They also matter; in turn, you should give them something special.

  • Know their interests: This is an easy one because your groomsmen are practically your closest friends. Know what they like, what gets them excited, etc.
  • Set a budget: Just being practical here, but weddings thrive on capitalism. That simple cuff is definitely more expensive when you buy it as a groomsmen gift.
  • Choose to give them the same ones or different ones:Giving different gifts will definitely make you the best groom ever, but this option is also hard since you do not want one gift to be greater than the other.
  • Give something that is of use:You do not want your gift to be hidden in the attic or basement. It is as simple as that.

Unique Groomsmen Gifts: Three Picks

With all those things in mind, let us now give you three of the unique gifts that you can choose for your best buddies.

●    American Protection Alliance Six Shooter Rocks Glass

This shooter glass drew inspiration from the Colt revolver which is a classic gun.  It definitely looks bad ass while you are using it. You can put in scotch, bourbon, whiskey, and tequila in it. This can hold up to 10 ounces, and the finish is that of a gunmetal gray color. The aluminum coating is food grade, so you are sure that you could drink off of the gun cannister glass. This product measures 3.25 inches for the diameter and 3.75 inches for the height while the total weight is 20 ounces.

For added personalization, you can engrave your friends name on the side. Surely, you and your buddies will enjoy your drinking sessions while using this shooter glass.

●    Custom Engraved Red Ammo Can

Here comes a very simple gift that other people might think to be so basic and meaningless. However, in reality, it is one of the most useful gifts that you can ever give a person. Your friend will be very thankful to you for the added storage. They can use this as their toolbox or as their booze case—the possibilities are endless. Actually, this was made from recycled materials of the M2A1 ammo cans which were used by the US Military. So, you still have that very masculine touch to it.

Additionally, it has a secure latch and rubber gaskets on both sides, so your things will stay in place. Lastly, you can engrave anything on either side of the can. You can put in your friend’s name or put a quote that your group of friends deeply believe in.

●    Six Shooter Pint Glass

This is another shooter glass that was made to look like the classic Colt revolver gun. However, this product differs from the first shooter class that we mentioned in terms of design. The design of this product is smoother and has more finesse. Further, it can hold up to 16 ounces of liquid while giving you a bit of space at the top. It measures 3.75 inches for the diameter and 4.25 inches for the height and has a total weight of five ounces.

You can also have something engraved on it as long as it can take one to two lines. There are also a lot of fonts to choose from; this is where you can get creative. If you plan on giving the same shooter glasses, you can assign different fonts for each friend, depending on the font that suits their personality.

Idea Behind these Suggestions

The main thrust of these gift suggestions is the fact that your groomsmen will either use your gift to bond with you and your other friends or have something that is truly useful to them.  At the same time, you yourself will be happy when you see them whip out and use your gift.

Do not think of it as a very basic gift because you could still personalize it by putting engravement. You can also have a bit of fun with these items when you put the special nickname of your friend instead of his real name. In this way, your friend will get the impression of how you view them.


Do not stress yourself too much on complicated gifts for your groomsmen. The sure-fire way to have the best-selling gift is to stick with the basics, but at the same time, keep in mind the needs of your groomsmen. Just follow the tips that we gave you earlier, and you will not lose your way. Now, go on and maybe give your groomsmen gifts a bit early so that you can use those for your epic bachelor party.
