2. Craft Beer Club

Craft beer. Delivered. To his doorstep. Every month. Craft Beer Club is one of the most unique groomsmen gifts we’ve ever seen! And, while I was looking at this one, Andrew was all, “Ooh, what is that?!” so you KNOW it’s awesome (and dude-approved). Plus, they’re having a special: join now and get three bonus gifts (an opener, four custom beer tasting glasses, and a $25 off discount. Amazing.)

The ‘groomsmen’ or ‘best man’ mug he’ll ACTUALLY use again, since he can change it up whenever he wants.

9. Handmade Leather Wallet

Okay, so a wallet is a pretty traditional groomsmen gift, but this one is way more unique: it’s handcrafted with premium leather and custom-made just for him.
