Wedding gifts for men are no harder to buy than bridesmaids gifts. There was a time when the only appropriate groomsman gift was a pair of cufflinks or a personalized handkerchief. A silver- or gold-plated engraved lighter may have also been an option.
Those items are still popular groomsmen gifts, but now there is so much more to choose from. Groomsmen gift ideas include objects for personal use (a leather shaving bag, for example) to products that can be used in the office or displayed in the home bar. The question is, how do you narrow down the myriad of options?
Price: The wedding day is important to you and should be a time to graciously thank your groomsmen. Budget as high as you reasonably can in order to buy the best, most appropriate groomsman gift.
Practical or pretty: What kind of people are your groomsmen? Will they appreciate something they can use regularly, or are they more interested in a keepsake?
Personality: Unless all of your groomsmen have very similar personalities, one gift may not fit all. Take into account the appropriateness of the gift before buying.
When shopping for groomsmen gifts, be prepared to be overwhelmed with the options. Before visiting any stores (in person or online), think about the person (people) the gift is for. That should help you frame an idea for the perfect groomsmen wedding gift ideas.
