The big day is approaching, and you’ve got your groomsmen on board. Show them your how much you appreciate them with thoughtful groomsmen gifts that perfectly capture the fun and camaraderie you’ve enjoyed over the years.

Whether you want to shop by activity, interest, or personality, use our ideas to find the perfect gifts for your essential crew.

1. Barware & drinkware

If your gang of groomsmen likes to enjoy an adult beverage or two, you can’t go wrong with personalized barware and drinking accessories. Always a popular choice for groomsmen gifts, beer mugs, shot glasses, and cocktail glasses are easy to personalize with each recipient’s name to add a memorable touch.

Bust out your cups during the bachelor party, or have them on hand for one last toast right before you walk the aisle. With a personalized beer mug or engraved flask in your hands, a quick drink with friends becomes a lot more meaningful and the memory will last well beyond the occasion itself.

2. Recreation and leisure accessories

Giving your groomsmen the gift of leisure isn’t limited to happy hour. Travel accessories are perfect for destination weddings and groomsmen coming from out of town. Barbecue accessories and grilling tools make great groomsmen gift ideas. You can even pick unique gifts for each of your groomsmen based on the things they love most.

Put together a collection of personalized golf gifts for the golfers on your crew, give sportsman and anglers a few personalized hunting or fishing accessories, or throw in a piece of sports memorabilia for die-hard fans.

Want to enjoy a stogie with your crew before the big day? Design custom cigar accessories like cutters, cases, lighters, and engraved cigar boxes so the whole gang can kick back and enjoy the experience in style.

3. Functional custom gifts

Plenty of groomsmen gift ideas can be fun, but you can also choose to go the functional route. A personalized pocket knife or multi-tool keychain is a popular option that will provide years of use, and an embroidered travel kit or engraved tie bar or money clip adds an extra touch of class for professionals and globetrotters alike.

4. Best man gifts

Your best man isn’t just one of the guys. Whether he’s your dad, your brother, or a lifelong friend, your best man knows you inside and out. Honor and acknowledge the special role this gent has played in your life with a meaningful gift made just for him.

Look for a best man gift that reflects your unique bond or a special interest you share. Elevate the sentiment with premium items like monogrammed cuff links, an engraved pocket watch, or a handsome watch box.

And if you haven’t asked your groomsmen to be a part of your big day yet, learn how to make a “Will you be my groomsman?” box that your best friends will love.

    The cuff links are a great idea. Groomsmen can wear them at the wedding and often thereafter.
