A wedding is a happy, frenzied time of intense planning and shopping. All the organizing and attention to detail culminate in one afternoon or day, your special wedding day. Your best man, groomsmen and ushers are indispensable. They attend events and help out with errands and offer their opinion when you ask for it.
Thanking your groomsmen with groomsmen gifts is a thoughtful, proper thing to do. Most grooms spend around $20 to $50 each on groomsman gifts. Most of the time these gifts have some sort of engraving, personalization, customizing or embroidery on them to add a personal touch. It shows you care when you go the extra mile to personalize a gift for someone. This personalization can be initials or a first name. Those are the most common.
If your buddies are all football fans, then it is even easier to pick cool gifts that they will love. Some ideas for the NFL fans on your team are as follows: money clips, glass tankards, Zippo lighters, cufflinks, rocks glasses, liquor flasks, bar signs, watches, coasters, wallets, keepsake boxes or wine kits. On all of these items you would pick your recipient’s favorite team. You thereby ensure that you have picked a gift that your friend will like. They will dig three things about this:
1. You got them a gift.
2. You got them a personalized gift which means you fussed over them. Everyone loves that.
3. You got them a gift with the logo of their favorite NFL team.
Just remember to get your groomsmen gifts a few months before the wedding. Too many grooms wait until the last few weeks. This only adds stress and extra shipping or rush charges to your order. It’s possible to get a last minute order but usually there are some hoops to jump through. Give yourself plenty of time. You’ll want to shoot for handing out your gifts either at the bachelor party or at the rehearsal dinner. Please don’t save handing out gifts for your wedding. You have enough to do that day and it will go extremely fast. Don’t stress about your groomsman gifts. You want to get everything out of the way so you can enjoy your wedding!
