The big day is on its way, and the best man has a lot to do. From organizing the bachelor party to making sure the groom shows up on time. In amongst the hectic planning, it’s important to keep on top of the group of people who come together as closest friends: Groomsmen. Gifting the groomsmen with matching ties, cufflinks, rings, or more are all excellent ways to unite the group and mark the occasion. Here are 5 choices of groomsmen gifts that will leave the group connected for years to com
The Old Reliable: Cufflinks
Cufflinks at a wedding are a time-honored tradition all over the world. With Cufflinks being used to mark wedding anniversaries it’s no wonder they are a top pick for gifts. However, they also possess a unique staying-power as groomsmen gifts specifically. A pair of cufflinks will be required on the day and fit snugly into the groomsmen’s attire. Not only that but the pairs can be personalized a great deal since only the groomsmen receive them. This small group of people can have nicknames, symbols, and more engraved into the cufflinks so they always remember who they were at the wedding, not just a groomsman but a member of a friendship group that truly cares.
Subtle, Simple, Tiepins
Alongside the suit cuffs, another required part of the day will be a tie. Given that, unique and personalized tiepins or clips are a perfect way to commemorate the Groomsmen. With a larger surface area than cufflinks, and being more openly displayed, tie pins are suited to showing off personalized text or symbols. Working as a sort of embellished name tag for your groomsmen and allowing them to break the ice with guests when they’re asked why their tie pin calls them an inappropriate groomsmen nickname.
It’s Not Just the Bride and Groom Getting Rings
While the wedding rings are the stars of the show, there’s something to be said for solid, stable bands for the groomsmen. A band, rather than a ring with a jewel, is a timeless piece of fashion that will get a huge amount of mileage for every groomsman well after the wedding day. A box of rings from Newman Bands will guarantee that each groomsman has a band of the material they want, that has as much or little color as desired. The bands are bold and stoic, and able to be mixed and matched with any outfit, even for work. This longevity and adaptability you don’t find with cufflinks and tiepins, whereas with bands, the groomsmen will go on to keep using and remembering the friends they shared them with every day they put it on.
Who Says It Has to Last?
To the complete opposite end of the spectrum now, from something timeless to something very much finite – beer. A personalised batch of beer for the groomsmen to sit and share on the day of the wedding is a unique experience. Being able to take a much-needed moment of calm on what will be a busy day is a gift that the groom and every groomsman will appreciate! While they won’t be able to take the beer home, they will have the bottles, and the shared experience with their fellow groomsmen of a drink well shared.
