Best Wedding Gifts Your Best Guys will Appreciate

So, the bridesmaids were easy to shop for.  Heck, you’ve bought them so much stuff you are pushing that budget! Mothers, even flower girls, those are the easy gifts.  In fact, if I had to guess the LAST thing you think about in shopping for your wedding. . . it’s probably those boys.

Or maybe you think about it, and you just don’t finish the shopping.

Because….it’s just too hard to decide exactly how to make them happy.

So let’s look at some of the different best men in your wedding and what you might get them. The best man, the junior groomsmen, the groomsmen, the fathers, there are a lot of men who work hard to make your wedding wonderful.

This cute little maglite set is great for a young junior groomsmen or ring bearer, to give them a special, personalized gift that will honor their contribution. 

Completely affordable at under $25, it comes in a case that’s easy to wrap and carry. The light itself is adjustable from a regular beam to spotlight, and comes in his favorite color. The whole thing comes conveniently with two AA batteries, and once you replace the batteries, you can make sure that new replacement batteries are put in the box! There is something so appealing about a flashlight (especially an adjustable one) to young boys, and he will absolutely love one with his name on it!

Is it Beer O’Clock yet? I can’t walk 3 blocks without seeing a new craft beer place in my neighborhood!  Here’s a chance to fill this box with your favorite beer (or a collection of different beers). The box itself is personalized, and so is the beautiful Pilsner glass, etched with your groomsman’s name.

The box can act as a temporary cooler, which means that the men in your wedding can bring out this beautiful cooler of 6 beers and a glass at any social event. With plenty of room for personalization, you can include a name and date or initials.


Luxury Fleece Robe

Just for Him Embroidered Luxury Fleece Robe with Name

The embroidered robe may be nothing new, but it is such a beautiful and warm gesture.  I remember years ago when I left my first big job, and the boss who’d always given me such a hard time gave me a big, plush, personalized robe!  I touched that fabric and felt like so loved!

This gorgeous, lush fleece robe comes in a few colors and has different fonts and thread colors. It’s always nice when personalization can also mean changing the look of the writing as well as just the name (or initials). 

Since many are staying away from their home for a few nights for the wedding–whether in a hotel or with family–it’s nice to have robes for the groomsmen, which they can then take home to remember that weekend to remember.


Weekender Bag

Personalized Weekender Bag – Canvas Travel Bag

A carry-on travel bag is just about the most convenient gift out there.  This is a beautiful canvas and faux-leather bag sold on Etsy. The reviews are amazing.  Just look at this review:

This bag is gorgeous and quality! I gave one to my father as a Christmas gift and he LOVED it! Everyone was raving about how beautiful it was. I would easily think this bag cost over $100 as the quality and craftsmanship is superb!”

If you want to make sure a gift will be used, it’s a great idea to consider something like this bag.  It’s a great size for a weekend or overnight bag, and instead of an over-involved personalization, it will just feature initials (in any font or color thread you’d like), making it easy to keep track of.  

At under $35, this is highly affordable as well–and could be given in bulk to bridesmaids as well.

Have a particularly hairy crew? Beards are still going strong as a trend and in any group of young guys you’ve got at least a few who are starting to grow them. Not all gifts have to be personalized to be special–these beard kits, particularly popular now, are really useful for the experienced or brand new beard-sprouter. 

This trimming and treatment kit combines beard oil and balm with trimming tools like scissors, trimmer, comb and brush in stainless steel.  It has a really pretty solid pinewood beard comb and horse hair brush, as well as a lovely dark wood box for storage. Basically, you can turn the mundane job of beard trimming into an elegant gift!
