Gentlemen, we have a harsh truth to lay down—if you intend to thank your go-to guys in your wedding party with the ultimate gift of all gifts, a bow tie or cufflinks just aren’t cool enough to cut it these days. Instead, you need a totally unique groomsmen gift that completely conveys your gratitude and that, most importantly, won’t get shoved in the back of a drawer after you’ve said “I do” (it DOES happen). All in all, your crew has been there since the start, from the proposal to trying on suits to potentially even listening to draft after draft of your wedding vows (“Not another one!”). On top of a vacation, these guys deserve a little something special either before the wedding or on the day of, to say the least.
As a way to say “thanks for spending a lot of your time and money on me,” return the favor with any of these 13 unique groomsmen gifts that are absolutely guaranteed to garner post-wedding usage. Tying the knot in an outdoor summer ceremony? Honor the wedding style with a completely lighthearted and entertaining present—a bocce ball set!
