Grooms: today’s post is for you! The verdict is out: groomsmen want gifts they’ll ACTUALLY use. Think practical, hand-picked for him, and something that you think is awesome, too. To inspire your gift list, we’ve rounded up a handful of the top groomsmen gift ideas for 2014. Read on to find out more… plus, toss your name in the hat for a chance to win a HUGE groomsmen gift pack worth over $200 by our friends at Bottle Breacher.
We’ve divided the top groomsmen gift ideas into six different categories. Let’s begin, shall we?
Top Groomsmen Gift Ideas
1. Wallets / Money Clips
Whether it’s a leather wallet, a money clip, or a combination of the two, a place for his cash is one groomsmen gift he’ll actually use (daily).
The key here is to have it personalized, which makes it evident it was selected / custom-made just for him.
2. Cigar Gifts
Does he love a good cigar? Buy him a set of his favorites and add a few of these cleverly-crafted accessories.
3. Coffee Gifts
Coffee gifts are great ideas for the java addicts in your life. Coffee lovers (myself included) like to find new and interesting ways to enjoy their coffee (like fancy-schmancy presses). For instance, check out this 2 point antler coffee scooper. It’s manly, adds to his home decor, and is totally useful. Plus, he probably doesn’t have a designated coffee scoop (I know I’m always just grabbing whatever spoon from the drawer I can find).
You could also consider pairing with an organic coffee of the month club (with craft coffee delivered to his door every month for a designated amount of time) and a funky, quirky, off-the-wall coffee mug. Let’s face it, you don’t have to be so formal all the time. The tank up coffee mug goes from empty to full once hot coffee has been added. Love.
And… I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Whiskey Barrel coffee, one of the greatest inventions in the history of ever. (Note: there’s no alcohol in this, just the fine essence of bourbon + coffee.)
4. Beer Gifts
Give him the ultimate manual for how to brew beer at home or an actual kit with all of the supplies (like this, the best-of-the-best). Other ideas include a kick-you-know-what bottle opener, like bottle openers made from 50 caliber shells (and handmade by an active duty service member!)…
… a custom flight for beer tastings…
… and let’s face it: personalized beer glasses are always a win.
This six pack beer caddy is another fun idea (it even has a bottle opener on the side)…
5. Shaving Gifts
Ah, the art of the manly shave. Is there anything more masculine? Well, this set is probably the most masculine shaving set I’ve seen yet.
Get OUT. Too cool. Pair it with some beer soap and beard oil, like this:
6. Whiskey Gifts
Whiskey glasses, whiskey stones, a whiskey tray, a bottle of his favorite whiskey, or a personalized whiskey bottle — like this– are all excellent groomsmen gift ideas.
And, don’t forget a personalized whiskey barrel, too!
So, what groomsmen gifts do they really want? Stuff they’ll use! Keep this in mind when picking out your gifts this wedding season.
