Our Top 9 Groomsmen Gift Ideas
What to Get For Your Groomsmen Gifts
If you’ve got a wedding coming up soon you’ve probably struggled with the question of what to get for your groomsmen gifts. We get it: it’s not easy to find gifts that strike a balance between unique (i.e. not something lame like matching ties) and reasonably-priced while still checking the “personalized” box. Over the last few years, helping our customers nail down the best groomsmen gifts has become a huge part of our business — so you’re in luck since we’ve got some great options for you.
A few things to keep in mind about our products — first, they all ship for FREE in the USA. Second, the prices shown on the product listings include custom engraving so there are no hidden fees…what you see is what you get on our pricing.
And lastly, nearly all of them have volume discounts that automatically kick in when you order a certain number of them — for instance, you can save 6% on each bottle opener and shot glass pair when you order 4+ of them. In many cases the discounts apply across products, so an order of 6 bottle openers and 2 pairs of shot glasses would qualify you for the 8+ discount of 8% per product.
One more factor — while most of our customers place their orders 3-6 months in advance of their weddings, we also get our share of panicked customers calling us 4 days before their wedding in need of some gifts. Since we normally process custom orders in 3-5 business days, there’s a good chance we can accommodate even the worst procrastinators among you.
If you’ve waited until even closer to your wedding date, we can still likely help you out — we offer rush processing for an additional fee during checkout, which essentially means your order will get jumped to the head of the line and ship within 1 business day. Combine that with FedEx 2-Day or Overnight shipping and you could receive an order within days of placing it, if needed.
Once you settle on your groomsmen gifts, we recommend taking a look at a few of these resources to help you nail down the details.

3. Six Shooter Rocks Glasses
Maybe someone in your wedding party prefers sipping whiskey over beer and shots. In that case, our Six Shooter Rocks Glasses may be the perfect fit for them. Like their little brothers shown above, these glasses are CNC machined out of solid aluminum but (unlike their little brothers) they weigh over a pound each and hold 10oz of liquid to make the the perfect size for some single barrel bourbon or the cocktail of your choice. With custom engraving you can add up to 2 lines of text running bottom to top on each glass.

4. Survival Kits
These Survival Kits make a great gift option if you have one or two people in your wedding party who deserve something a little nicer than a single bottle opener. Each kit features a custom engraved bottle opener, a custom engraved stainless steel flask and funnel, and a pair of custom engraved stainless steel pints housed inside of an upcycled .50 caliber ammo can in either the original OD green or a black powder-coated finish.

5. Discount Groomsmen Sets of .50 Caliber Bottle Openers
These matte black .50 cals are the exact same bottle openers featured in some of our higher-priced listings, but they’re a little more affordable since they’re not made-to-order with custom names or dates. Each bottle opener (and the optional gift box, if you choose that upgrade) features a standard title of Groom, Best Man, Groomsman, Father of the Bride, Father of the Groom, or Usher.

6. Brass .50 Caliber Bottle Openers
If you’re more of a traditionalist then our brass .50 Cal Bottle Openers may be a better fit for you than our powder-coated or nickel-plated versions. Featuring custom engraving on each .50 BMG casing as well as three upgrade options for gift boxes if you want something a little more upscale than our normal packaging, these bottle openers will last a lifetime.

7. Best Man Bundles
These bundles are a slight step up from our normal custom engraved .50 caliber bottle openers with personalized gift boxes — which makes them a great option if you’re looking for Best Man gifts or still need to endear yourself to the Father of the Bride. Despite their title, they’re also more than appropriate for groomsmen and other members of your wedding party. These bundles include both the customized bottle opener and gift box, but also throw in a pair of .50 caliber cufflinks in brass or nickel and a money clip featuring a “coin” showing headstamps from a replica .50 caliber round.

8. Brass .50 Caliber Pens
Another good option for friends and family who don’t drink (or who might not be old enough to do so). These pens are made from the same .50 BMG casings as our bottle openers, but instead of reloading them with an M33 projectile and notching them we “reload” them with a machined aluminum mock projectile which holds a standard Bic ballpoint pen refill.

And finally, our top seller…
9. Matte Black .50 Caliber Bottle Openers
Featuring a matte black powder-coated finish on top of our classic brass .50 BMG casing and M33 projectiles, your custom engraving will show up in bright contrast against the black finish. Each bottle opener comes standard with up to 3 lines of custom engraving so you can include names, titles, dates, nicknames, or anything else on them — and you can also upgrade to add customized boxes for them as well.
