30oz Thermal Tumbler

with Monogram


It's hard to top a thermal tumbler when it comes to choosing a useful gift that'll last for years. Your groomsmen will get daily use out of one of these versatile mugs. Vacuum insulation means it'll keep coffee hot and beer cold for far longer than it'll take your groomsmen to drink it. Personalize each one with a monogrammed initial and custom text. 

Honorable mention

Rustic Brown Flask
with Gift Box

Flasks are a staple when it comes to groomsmen gifts, but we (and our customers, apparently) like this one because of the distressed, vintage look of the brown leatherette. When we zap it with our laser it produces a gold color, and you can choose from multiple options for artwork in addition to custom text on both the flask and the box.

We get it. Finding the perfect gifts for your groomsmen can be difficult. Choosing a vendor who does quality customization work — and who can guarantee timely delivery — isn't easy either.

Fortunately, we can get you on the right path.

If you're looking for unique wedding gifts with dozens of customization options and fast turnaround time, look no further. Below you can find all of our most popular gift ideas for your wedding party — everything from flasks to bottle openers to cufflinks to coasters.

All About Groomsmen Gifts and Wedding Etiquette

Every year, over two million couples are married in the US — quite a large number.

While not every party has a large contingent of groomsmen, most grooms have someone stand up with them.

It doesn't matter if you’re hosting a large, traditional wedding with hundreds of guests or a smaller gathering with only family and close friends. Either way, it’s important to recognize some of the traditions associated with groomsmen and their gifts.

In every wedding, the best man and groomsmen have important roles to play. They are there to extend their support to the groom and the soon-to-be couple.

Their duties include helping with some aspects of wedding planning, throwing a bachelor (or couple’s) party, keeping track of the rings on the big day, assisting the groom with getting dressed, ushering guests into the church, and being public witnesses to the pledge of marriage.

Leather Journal

If your groomsmen love to write or doodle a lot, a journal could be the perfect gift, but it shouldn't be just any journal.

It should be built to last, and a style that you couldn't just pluck off the shelf at Target.

Choose a design that symbolizes your common traits or interests, or one that may have a special meaning to your groomsmen.

Portland Leather Goods is another great option for high-quality and unique notebooks.

Monogrammed Poker Set



These Six Shooters make the perfect whiskey glasses — they're machined from a solid block of aluminum and weigh in at over a pound, so you're not likely to find a manlier highball glass on the market.

Each glass holds 10oz of your favorite spirit or cocktail, making them the perfect size for a few fingers of bourbon on the rocks or for a whiskey sour.

Up to two lines of custom engraving running bottom to top on each glass is available, so you'll have plenty of room to include name, wedding date, or anything along those lines.

How Much To Spend On Groomsmen Gifts

A wedding is a very important event in anyone's life. There is a whole lot of planning that goes down when it comes to this special event. From selecting the venue, choosing the right caterers, selecting the attire...the list is pretty much endless.

However, there is another important thing that you need to think about carefully.

And that thing is giving gifts to your groomsmen. Now, if you are loaded with money, then it isn't an issue. But what if you aren't?

This is a very common question that occurs in a guy's mind when he is selecting his best men. In most cases, the groomsmen come from your immediate family or close friends.

When it comes to gifting someone this close, you need to put in quite a bit of thought into what you choose.

It's easy if you are rich and can afford to spend as much as you would want to. However, not everyone can do so especially during a wedding which involves plenty of expenses as it is.

In this article, we aim to break down all the costs for you when it comes to gifting your groomsmen. There are quite a few factors that you must consider, and we will list each of them so that you have a better idea.

What is the Ideal Amount?

Before you even think of how much you are going to spend on the groomsmen gifts, it is essential you plan the budget for your wedding first. On the basis of that only can you even think of what budget should you set for the gifts. Gifts for groomsmen are a part of the wedding budget.

No matter how close these men are to you, you should always remember that you should buy gifts with logic and not your emotions. The minute you let your emotions come into play, be ready to shell out at least $300 for just one gift.

Another thing you must keep in mind is that you'll want to treat everyone equally as much as you can.

You cannot play favorites and let one get something much more expensive than the others.

Additionally, you also need to consider the personal interests of each groomsman. The gift should match the groomsman and vice versa.

What is the Ideal Cost to Gift Each Groomsman?

There is no "ideal" cost when it comes to gifting your groomsmen. This entirely depends on your budget and the number of groomsmen you have. It is obviously easier to spend for just one best man rather than six groomsmen and the FOTB/FOTG.

But if you want a hard number, we recommend that you spend about $30-40 per groomsmen for their gift. Alternatively, there is a rule, which does not need to be strictly followed. You are allowed to spend about 10-30% of what your best man has spent for your wedding.

By that we mean, the tuxedo, shoes or whatever you have asked him to purchase for himself for your wedding.

So, assuming your best man has spent about $400 altogether for your wedding, 10-30% of that would be between $40 and $120.

If you make your best man spend more for your wedding, it goes without saying that you should spend more on a gift for him to show you recognize his financial commitment to your special day.

The other factor to keep in mind is how involved they will be at your wedding.

Let's face it: not every groomsman is going to be by your side as much as others. And not every one will have a magic touch in dealing with guests at your wedding.

So, depending on how much work they do for your special day, can also be taken into consideration when you are gifting him.

Don't Forget To Consider The Number Of Groomsmen

A crucial aspect that could possibly trump all other factors is how many groomsmen you are planning on having for your wedding. Some couples go all out and have even about eight pairs of bridesmaids and groomsmen for their wedding.

It's obviously going to burn a hole in your pocket if you spend between $50 and $100 for each.

A great way to save money when buying gifts for your groomsmen is by buying things for them online. It also makes sense sometimes buying things in advance especially during holiday sales, like Black Friday sales.

During times like those, you will likely end up saving a decent chunk of cash on your purchases.

There are also plenty of options out there for inexpensive groomsmen gifts that are still useful and meaningful. So don't feel like you have to spend $50+ per groomsman to get a memorable gift.

How and When Should I Give My Groomsmen Gifts?

This is a very common question that we get asked often, and we cover it in detail here.

For the TL;DR version, there is no right or wrong answer to this.

You can gift your groomsmen as and when you think is appropriate.

Most commonly, you will find guys gifting their groomsmen during the rehearsal dinner since the gathering there is typically small and personal. This gives you an opportunity even to take out some time during the dinner and acknowledge each of your groomsmen personally.

Another option is to give gifts as part of asking them to be your best man or groomsman. Think of it as "proposing" to your groomsmen. This approach allows a personal one on one acknowledgment in advance of what will no doubt be a busy wedding weekend.

Whatever time you choose to gift your groomsmen, make sure that it is appropriate. You wouldn't want to be giving out their gifts right in the middle of your reception while everyone has already downed a couple of drinks. This will end up with the gesture losing most of the sentiment attached to it.

If you want to take it a step further by adding a little personal touch to it, then we recommend that you also attach a handwritten note to the gift telling your pal how thankful you are for having him at your wedding and in your life.

Conclusion

No matter what it is, in the end, how much to spend on groomsmen gifts entirely depends on you. Just make sure that you don't have to cut costs from your wedding budget in order to gift them. Your main and ultimate priority is always going to be your wedding and your wife.
