Your wedding is coming up and fast, and you still need to figure out not just what to get your groomsmen, but how to transport it to your destination wedding. Unless you want your wedding to be mostly shipping costs to get those gifts there, chances are you are going to be looking for something on the smaller side.
While smaller gifts can appear to be less thought out, you also want to avoid looking like you ran into a convenience store on your way to the wedding and picked up something last minute. A unique groomsmen gift is something that your groomsmen will cherish for a long time, and while it may seem like a challenging task, finding the right unique gift for your buddies is quite easy when you really get down to it.
Engraving is a great way to personalize plenty of different items for your groomsmen. Lasers can engrave anything from wood to metal to glass in a fraction of the time and cost that it did in the past. Monogram towels, mugs and even cigar humidors, are great ways to show your buddies that the time they've dedicated to your big day was appreciated. What feeling is better than hitting the green with your 6 iron and cleaning it off with a towel containing your initials?
Flasks are an excellent gift for so many reasons. Give them an engraved flask them with their initials, the date of your wedding, or pretty much anything in letters and numbers, which would be meaningful to them. It is a gift that they will probably use time and time again, as well as something that can be done up so that it is as classy as you want it to be. A filled flask is one step up, too, especially if you fill it with their favorite top shelf liquor. Flasks are also easy to pack and won’t take up the precious room in your suitcase.
It's a destination wedding after all, so why not get your groomsmen a sweet travel gift set that they can bring to your wedding? Not only does this mean that they will be using your gifts immediately, it also means they will not have to worry about packing the essentials, as they are already packed in a personalized toiletry bag.
Cufflinks are another small sized gift that packs easily, but can be used immediately on your wedding day. Unlike the flasks, the bride's mother probably won't look down on your groomsmen for wearing their cufflinks during the ceremony. These cufflinks can be engraved however you want, and while rented tuxes can come with standard ones, having a special accessory like a pair of engraved cufflinks can make anyone feel classy. These cufflinks can be used time and time again as they will aid your buddies in making good impressions at interviews, networking events or business meetings.
No matter what you give your groomsmen, make sure it is personal and shows you thought. The last thing any of us guys wants is to be thanked with a gift that shows no meaning.
