Whatever gift you decide to buy for the guys, just remember that it’s not the amount of money you spend. It’s to express your appreciation for their support and friendship through the years.
The best man has a special role and a special place in the wedding party
The best man has a special role and a special place in the wedding party, so a more distinctive gift choice would be a nice gesture. He probably has been your best friend for years, perhaps since childhood. He should receive a precious gift that expresses your appreciation for your friendship and something that means a lot to both of you. It should bring back memories of the special times you had together while you both were still single. Perhaps you can give the best man a cigar and flask set or a pocket watch.
Have you ever been a part of a wedding party and received a gift you never used?
Have you ever been a part of a wedding party and received a gift you never used? Remember that when buying gifts for your groomsmen. Each man has their own personality so take that into consideration. You can either buy something for them as individuals, or you can buy the same item for all. As an example, if one is a beer drinker, available at many stores is a glass beer mug that you can get engraved with his name or a special quote. More than likely one or more of your groomsmen may be into sports. You can find many sports related gifts such as an autographed baseball or personalized bat that they will really appreciate.
Many items can be found and ordered online that are specifically geared toward gifts for groomsmen
Many items can be found and ordered online that are specifically geared toward gifts for groomsmen. In addition, you can also check local stores and catalogs. For instance, “Things Remembered”, a popular store in most shopping malls, always has gifts that can be personalized by engraving something such as a name, initials or a phrase that best describes your friendship. You might choose from things such as a pocket knife, flask, key rings or a money clip. A novel idea would be to buy a gift that can actually be worn or used on your wedding day such as cufflinks. You can personalize the cufflinks by adding each groomsman’s initials. This is also a practical gift that can be used at a later time.
Many guys don’t express themselves through words and feelings
Many guys don’t express themselves through words and feelings. Although this is usually the case, it’s still important to remember to buy your groomsmen a gift in expression of appreciation. The best man and groomsmen are probably lifetime friends of yours. They were chosen to stand beside you on this important day because they have stood beside you throughout a lifetime. The least you can do is show your appreciation through giving a gift that portrays how much they mean to you. Remember, these are the guys who have always been there for you, especially now. They are the ones that are choosing to stand up, in support, with you as you marry the woman of your dreams. Traditionally, the bride buys a gift for the bridesmaids while the groom buys individual presents for the groomsmen.
