5 Classy Ways to Thank your Groomsmen

Posted on Apr 13, 2014. 0 comments

While it is common practice for wedding goers to buy nice gifts for the bride and groom, the soon to be married couple should also reciprocate the favor. Groomsmen deserve a classy gift that says “thank you” in a respectful and sincere manner.

Something like a small box of chocolates with a picture of the wedding couple on the front won't suffice. Nor will a handful of mints in a tin can with the wedding date on the cover. Groomsmen deserve better than that. Take a look below for 5 classy groomsmen gift ideas that express gratitude in the proper fashion.

 

Pocket Knives and Multi Tools

 

Personalized Knife

Now this is something that every man can use. Let your groomsmen summon their inner MacGyver with a utilitarian multi tool or pocket knife. We all had one of these when we were younger and boy, did we enjoy them. This is the sort of gift that will inspire feelings of nostalgia and youthful bliss. It will also come in handy more than almost any other gift that you can think of. Even if your groomsmen live in urban environments, they'll still find a use for a pocket knife. Or, get them a pocket knife/money clip combo unit. If you want to go the extra mile, get an engraved pocket knife with each groomsman's initials or name.

 

 

Customized Pens

 

Personalized Pen Gift

Even though we've gone digital as a society, everyone still uses pens at least a couple times a week. People still write notes, fill out checks, create grocery lists and sign their names. So pick out some high quality personalized pens and cases and make them unique with engravings for each groomsman. Or, pick out stylish journals, portfolios, journals and letter openers if you think your groomsmen would appreciate them a bit more.

 

Flasks

 

Personalized Flask

Every groomsman will enjoy a flask. Most brides and grooms take the idea a bit further and provide their groomsmen with personalized flasks, engraved with their names or their initials. Men love their alcohol, especially after a long wedding process involving rehearsals, tuxedo fittings, a bachelor party and the actual wedding itself. It's a stressful series of events that groomsmen will appreciate much more when they are downing some hard liquor out of a customized flask, unique to them.

Flasks are typically available in stainless steel and leather. If your groomsmen are the outdoors type, opt for leather. If they are urban warriors, go for stainless steel. If you don't want to engrave their initials on the flasks, engrave something like your fraternity's letters, nicknames or a short, meaningful saying. Don't forget to fill those flasks up! That way the boys can start partying right away.

 

Cigar Humidor

 

Personalized Cigar Humidor

A personalized cigar humidor is a masculine gift that is sure to please any groomsman. A humidor is essential to maintaining quality cigars as it keeps them fresh for the long haul. Even if some of your groomsmen don't smoke, they can use the humidor as a container for other objects like personal valuables and keepsakes.

 

Engraved Cufflinks

 

Personalized Cufflinks

Cufflinks help a dress shirt's cuffs look much more stylish. Cufflinks are especially rewarding when engraved. Although they sound expensive, engraved cufflinks are actually quite affordable. Cufflinks are like the gleaming rims on a luxury sports car. They are the final piece to a man's unique personal aesthetic. Choose between brass, rhodium and silver cufflink finishes for the ultimate classy groomsman gift.

The time-honored tradition of tipping can often raise a lot of questions and debates. Although tipping service providers is typically regarded as a distinctively American practice, the act was actually an Old World tradition starting back in the 1700s (or even earlier) where tavern workers were given “drink money” by patrons so that they may also have a tankard of beer at night’s end. Tipping in America did not actually take hold until after the Civil War when opinions about gifting to “inferiors” were less controversial.

Pinterest for Grooms

Guys, have you been on Pinterest.com? You know, that social media site your girlfriend is probably totally into and creating all sorts of wedding boards. If you are a total Pinterest newbie, the idea is that people “pin” images or videos to their “boards” – it’s like a virtual visual scrapbook right on your computer. All the images link back to their original source so you can just click through to get the entire dose of information whenever you want. And, if you’re into being popular on social media (come on, I know you secretly want a million followers), the beauty of all stuff that you pin is that it can be “re-pinned” by others and get you exponential exposure as it gets repined and repined.

Advert Thirst Disasters with Emergency Drink Kits

I was recently out of town for a wedding and was treated to a clever wedding favor. When I arrived to the hotel and trudged up to my room, inside an “emergency drink kit” was waiting to greet me. It’s not unusual for the bride and groom to leave behind a little welcome basket in each room for the non-local guests; usually it’s filled up with stuff like maps, restaurant suggestions, the wedding weekend itinerary, some snack foods and such. But this was way, way cooler considering I really needed a good drink after a long and stressful day of air travel.

Big Bucks for Big Name Bands at Wedding

About this time last year, I read about a groom who thought he was hiring a music superstar to perform at his wedding and ended up falling prey to a scam. Apparently Brian Valentine, a hot shot executive at Amazon, thought he had booked Tom Petty, the artist behind songs like “Refugee” and “Free Fallin,” to rock out at his wedding reception. The performance was going to be a gift to his fiancée, a major fan of the band that rose to fame in the 1980s.

Famous Cigar Smokers in History

If your friends enjoy smoking and the finer things in life, you should consider giving cigars and cigar accessories as groomsmen gifts. A cigar inspired best man gift or groomsmen gift, like a beautiful humidor or specially-designed cigar ashtray, not only aids the recipient in the enjoyment of this luxury in life, but also sends your sentiments of appreciation. Many of us have a stereotyped image of a cigar smoker based on our past experiences. For many, this gentleman is distinguished, relaxed and exudes an air of refinement. He may or may not be rich or powerful, but when it comes to cigar smoking, he’s a man of means and only the puffs on cigars that please his palate. Over the years, many famous people have been associated with cigars, thus lending to one’s perception of a “cigar smoker.” The thought of some of these celebrity smokers would be nearly unrecognizable if they didn’t have a cigar lolling between the lips. Inspired by a list from Cigars Magazine, these men were known world-wide for their cigar fancy.

Wild Nights - Celebrity Bachelor Parties

When you’re a celebrity, everyone knows nearly every step you take. You can’t go into grocery story without a photo popping up that shows your cart filled with Cheetos and beer.

You can’t take the trash can to the curb in your boxers without appearing next week in gossip magazines. But, not too many regular Joes feel sorry for the A-listers; celebrities get paid handsomely and being in the public eye comes along with the profession. So, as you would expect, a celebrity groom’s bachelor party is also fair fodder for public consumption.

30 Tips for Crashing Weddings

Crashing weddings has become a sport with some guys. If you haven’t heard the term or seen the movie, Wedding Crashers, the phrase means attending the wedding reception of a total stranger without an invitation. Crashing weddings is reasonably easy; all you have to do is get out of your sweat pants and put on a sports jacket, grab a few friends, and cruise the ballrooms of swanky hotels or well-known wedding venues on a Saturday night looking for wedding crasher heaven – an open bar, endless buffet and a bevy of bridesmaids and female guests without dates. You don’t even have to bring a wedding gift; but, of course, it would be thoughtful if you did! Technically it is not illegal to crash a wedding; however, if it is on private property, you would be trespassing and may be asked to leave if discovered. And, making a nuisance of yourself anywhere could be considered disorderly conduct. Read our rules below on crashing weddings, and, if you dare, try it out. But, really we’re just having some fun here!

Mustache Mania for Grooms

Mustache Mania for Grooms

Mustaches seem to be all the rage in pop culture today. But, why the resurgence in popularity with the hairy upper lip? Really mustaches hark from the dawn of time, do you think the cavemen shaved off facial hair? We think not. My guess is that ïstaches are back on the scene because of a renewed interest in all things from 70s and 80s eras. Everything old becomes new, hip and cool again, including mustaches flashing back to the days of Burt Reynolds in Smokey and the Bandit, Tom Selleck in Magnum P.I., and the legendary runner Steve ñPreî Prefontaine. A physical feature unlike no other, the mustache has been the common denominator forever linking dictators with porn stars and artists with potheads. ItÍs the universal equalizer yet, if worn right, imparts a certain swagger that a clean-shaven face just canÍt pull off.
