The biggest tip we have for shopping for the guys is don’t over think it! Simple is best. 


1. Gift bag- This is the easiest (and most common) groomsmen gift! A bag filled with inexpensive items that will say “thanks” is definitely something he will love. Some great options to include are candy, socks or cuff links to wear on the wedding day or a cigar. Throwing together a gift full of things he will love and use is a great way to show your appreciation. 

2. Watch- If you are wanting to splurge and get something nice for each of your groomsmen you can’t go wrong with a nice watch. It is something they can wear at the wedding and everyday after. 

3. Yeti cup or koozie- A simple gift that they will use all the time! Seriously, you can never have too many Yeti cups, so even if they already have one, a second will be appreciated.

4. Subscription based service- A total “gift that keeps giving”! Paying for a few months worth of a subscription service is a super cool way to make sure the love keeps going even after the big day. There are subscriptions for anything from razors to hot sauce to bourbon! With a little digging you are sure to find one your groomsmen will love!

Bonus tip:

Giving gifts can be hard if you are working to make sure they will be something multiple will love. One way to conquer that is to find something that is similar, but can be made personal for each person. Different colors or different styles of a similar item can be a great way to make each gift feel special and unique.

Whatever you end up gifting the guys in your group they will be sure to love it because it came from you and your fiancé! Being asked to stand beside someone on such an important day is an honor, so any gift that comes along with that is just a bonus.
