Unique Groomsmen Gifts

Wondering what to get the guys? Plenty of unique things to choose from! In fact, picking groomsmen gifts is easy. No really, guys are easy to buy for if you just think about what they'd really want.

Just because you are having a wedding and the guys are groomsmen doesn't mean you need to stick withe boring, traditional gifts that get shoved into a drawer, forgotten. He probably doesn't need an engraved keychain with your wedding date on it. Who would want that? Just because keepsake type gifts (clutter) have been popular in the past doesn't mean you need to do it too.

Just like choosing bridesmaid gifts, you know your guys the best and can certainly come up with something unique. For the guys though, try to stick with something functional. Rare is a man who actually wants a keepsake that does nothing but sits on a shelf. Get something they can use!

For the wine connoisseur, a waiter's corkscrew is perfect. For the sports buff, tickets to an upcoming game or a subscription to Sports Illustrated would be great. For an outdoorsman, a pocketknife or a compass is sure to please. Most guys like gadgets, so anything electronic is probably going to make them happy. A nice wallet or belt is something they'll use for a long time and might not normally buy for themselves. If you want something that is more of a keepsake (but still functional!), engraved groomsmen gifts such as flasks or money clips are classy gifts.

Many guys would be thrilled to simply get a 12-pack of beer. No, really! A unique groomsmen gift is to buy several different kinds of beer and put a variety in a cooler. Maybe even a hip, vintage cooler! Other ideas are tools, ties, watches, pocket watches, travel journal, board games, cds and dvds. Don't forget personalized beer mugs, champagne glasses, cigars, monogrammed bathrobes, initials cufflinks or key chains.

Similar to the spa day idea for the bridesmaids, the groom could take the guys out on a sports trip...a day of golf if they are into that, for example. A concert is another similar idea for a guys' night out.

Want to DIY? Your friends have a sense of humor? Consider making a funny ABC scrapbook that tells funny stories and memories.

Remember, it is not important how much money you spend, just make sure to pick groomsmen gifts that they'll enjoy!

It's your wedding, do it the way you want!
