The groomsman gift is your way of saying thank you: for renting the tuxedo, ushering your Great Aunt down the aisle, and coming up with the perfect reception toast. These guys stood by your side through thick and thin and now they’ll stand by your side as you celebrate your big day. It goes without saying that a simple high-five and a hug just isn’t enough to show your appreciation. To show your gratitude for their help (and friendship), it’s much more customary to give each of them a gift.
That is, however, no easy task. It can be hard to think of a classy gift your friends will actually like, and more difficult still, something they will actually use…
Perhaps a few things to think about when choosing a gift:
Is this something you wish you had, but could never picture buying for yourself?
Is this something they could use for themselves after the wedding is over?
Is this personal and classy enough to show how much you appreciate them?
Yes, a lot to consider. Well, luckily for you, we’ve compiled a list of classy and personal gift suggestions that we think meet all the criteria. Here are a few of our suggestions to show your groomsmen or any other special person taking part in the day, just how much you treasure them.
