Smart Ideas for Groomsmen Gifts
"Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow grow, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation." (George Washington 1732 - 1799)
Chances are excellent that the men you have asked to stand beside you in front of God and family are very important people in your lives. Often times the insanity of nuptial planning will give a groom enough of an excuse to offer sub-par groomsmen gifts for these gentlemen. Usually as these "chintzy" gifts are being passed out, the groom instantly regrets not having put more effort and forethought into the selection. He may offer the excuse that he was too busy or the wedding had really taken a chunk out of his savings account, but ultimately he'll regret not putting more care into his selection. After all, how many opportunities do men get to really say, "You are my closest family and friends and you mean the world to me."
The real truth is that you don't need a lot of time or money to do these men justice. What are their favorite sports? Do they like Tiger or T-Mac? Do they dig the Rocket or perhaps the Rockets? If sports is their game, Groomstand has all the gear they could ever dream of. Is one of your guys a hockey nut? Maybe an hour of rink time with your boys as a warm up to the bachelor party is in order. To do this fine party right, forget the Cristal or the Dom... that's expensive and only lasts for a moment. Instead we recommend a personalized Rawlings Baseball Bat. It not only makes a statement as to what your game of choice is, but it might as well be a Picasso or a Warhol if hung front and center upon the living room wall. If he's a flat stick man, then we recommend the Brass Head Putter. Again, it's beautiful, practical and goes well mounted alongside the Rawlings lumber.
Your best buddies hate all things sports related? Well, if athletics isn't their game, you might think that all would be hopeless, but that is simply not the case. There are other ways for males to exorcise their testosterone related demons, and the Dalvey Pocket Flask a Cherry Wood Humidor and a Black Ice Zippo is perhaps as demonstrative as one can get at expressing an air of success and class. It says to the world, I don't have to hang out at a sports bar and watch bums fight on pay per view television to make the statement, "I'm all man, baby."
Now the focus of this article has been on knowing thy groomsmen but let's say for arguments sake that perhaps you don't quite know one of your groomsmen as well as you think, but you suspect that he may not really be all that manly on the inside as he is on the outside. Fear not! You've come to the right place. If years of therapy still haven't given him the courage to tell you what's really going on, then you can take the initiative and break the ice by giving him a personalized Engraved Bud Vase. And while Sweet Nothing Panties might tread the dangerous line of being over the top, nothing says I care, and I appreciate how wonderfully decorated your home is more than Silver Plated Napkin Rings. They are both elegant and practical simultaneously.
We hope we have been able to create an answer for every situation and challenge when it comes to giving the ideal gift to your groomsmen. Taking care of the most important men in your world is as important as choosing the proper wedding destination for your bride. Knowing that thy groomsmen will do the same for you when you are called upon to be a part of their wedding one day, one should take the time to find the perfect niche gift. It can be achieved easily, quickly and without a large budget, but it does take a little bit of forethought. And finally, remember, as the big day draws nearer, there are so many details that must be handled for all to fall into place. Our first suggestion is, hire a dandy wedding coordinator. Our second...please don't forget your boys.
