The weeks of planning, organising, mayhem and stress is almost over and your big wedding day is just round the corner.
Before you celebrate, take a moment to remember everything your groomsmen have done. From organising a kick-ass stag do to writing an hilarious wedding speech, these men have been by your side and now you need to thank them with an awesome present.
This is going to be difficult.
With all the different interests to consider plus the need for it to be memorable, this will be no easy task.
The first step is to not rush into buying anything for your groomsmen too soon. Take your time and choose carefully. They will be much more appreciative if they can see that you have put time and thought into their gift.
Traditional gifts for the groomsmen are often a pair of cufflinks or a hip flask. Both items are suitable as the cufflinks can be used for any special occasion and can be brought to suit their taste, and a hip flask will always get good use from any man. It is also can be seen as a way for you to say goodbye to your bachelorhood.
If you don’t want the traditional gift but would still like to offer something that all your groomsmen can use, then consider some luxury grooming products. This shouldn’t be anything too cheap as it could look like not much thought went into the present. Make it something that is classic and unique and can’t be brought at the local supermarket. The idea that it is a luxury product will signify that the gift is something special to your groomsmen.
There are also some items that you should avoid when it comes to gifts. Forget anything cheesy or with hilarious funny quotes. These are best saved for the stag do only. You need something that your groomsmen can cherish and that they can keep with good memories, not something that will cause a few good jokes and will be hidden in a drawer never to be seen again.
Forget the wife. This may sound harsh but the gift is to come from you and only you. You know your groomsmen best and know what they will like. By you deciding on the gifts, it will make it more personal and special for them.
Finally if the groomsmen are all so unique and different, why not get them something that is different to suit each one of their likes and personalities that they will all individually love. It will show that you thought about each one of them and took the time to choose each gift carefully.
