8 Practical Groomsmen Gift Ideas
It’s wedding season! Whether you’re planning your own wedding or Pinterest surfing (we don’t judge), today we’re going to be diving into some of my husband, Joseph’s favorite groomsmen gift ideas.
Don’t get me wrong, I have ideas on what makes a cool and great gift, but your man knows his friends the best. And even if your groom may not know what to get his friends, maybe mine can help him narrow it down.
“Wait, we have to buy our wedding party gifts?? Why?” you may ask…
To be totally honest, no, you don’t have to buy your wedding party gifts. Don’t tell your mama, but you can and should pick and choose what makes sense for your wedding. If you don’t want to do a garter toss, don’t.
When it comes to bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts, I equate it to writing Thank You cards. It’s a kind thing to do, especially when many of your bridesmaids and groomsmen are helping you plan, throw showers, and are potentially dropping a couple hundred dollars to participate in your special day.
What Did Joseph Give His Groomsmen?

I’m a huge fan of being unique, and so is Joseph. We wanted to give our friends and family who were participating in our special day something that we thought they would love. Here’s some of the gifts Joseph gave his guys:
- North Georgia Mountains Moonshine Tasting Set
- Avengers Pocket Watch
- Superhero Wallet
- Gift Card for a Wedding Band — not kidding. One of our groomsmen got engaged so why not!
8 Groomsmen Gift Ideas the Guys in Your Wedding Will Love
Joseph and I really wish we had known about this company before our wedding! The Bro Basket is a one-stop-shop if you need buying a groomsmen gift to be quick and easy. The company gives you so many options to choose from depending on what you and the bros bond over — including beer, liquor, beef jerky and more. (We highly recommend the one we sampled, which was the Moscow Mule with Titos Tequila) Check it out here.
Side note: Father’s Day anyone?
I feel like everywhere you turn around while wedding planning, there’s another keepsake. Bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts don’t necessarily have to be a keepsake (see The Bro Basket if that’s your vibe), but if you do want one, why not make it something awesome?
Not only is this bullet bottle opener cool and unique, but the fact it’s on a keychain means it’s portable and won’t just sit gathering dust in the kitchen cabinet. (We’re also big fans that you’re able to customize each one) Check it out here.

How cool are these? Did you bond over drinking whiskey in Scotland? Maybe your bachelor party is in Vegas. These glasses are a cool keepsake, but they’re also classic and something your friends will probably keep for years. Cheers! Check it out here.
As we get older, there are some things that you want to spend a little extra $$$ on. Wallets are definitely one of these items. We first mentioned these in our Holiday Gift Guide for Men, and these are so good we had to mention them here! The Frye Company also has a bunch of other things we would totally recommend if you’re not feeling giving the guys a wallet. Check it out here.
We love coffee in our household. It’s cheaper then therapy and has a better success rate of keeping Joseph awake in the morning.
This is a simple and inexpensive way to show your appreciation for your men. (And Joseph likes having a good mug that is just for him) Check it out here.
Even guys need some good pampering! The Art of Shaving has some amazing kits, but we highly recommend this starter kit, which has everything he will need for a close and bump-free shave. There are a bunch of different scents to choose from, so mix and match, or go classic. Check it out here.
This is probably about as practical as it gets… which we get it, it’s “boring.” But this little thing is Joseph’s favorite lunchbox in the world.
The Hot Logic heats up your food within a 6 cup Pyrex container, which keeps everything tasting delicious unlike the microwave. All you have to do is plug it in. Check it out here.
These are AMAZING. Farm to Feet make some of the best socks for everything from everyday to hiking socks. They have special panels so your feet can breathe, and extra support for when you’re hiking or running. Check it out here.
