2020 Groomsmen Gift Guide

Congratulations! She said “yes”!

With wedding planning comes recruiting of your groomsmen. Your best friends have been with you through many ups and downs, and you just can’t see your wedding day without them standing with you!

A personalized gift is a great way to show your appreciation for the sacrifice and work that goes into creating your and your bride’s dream wedding. Whether you give the gifts when asking your buddies to be your groomsmen, on the wedding day, or any time in between, these gifts are sure to please!

The Classics

There is a reason these gifts are classics. They are useful in any stage of life, and fall under a range of different budgets for any groom. Here are some groomsmen gifts that never go out of style:

  • Pocket knife
  • Multi-tool
  • Money clip
  • Wallet
  • Watch
  • Lighter

Most, if not all, of these items can be personalized with monogrammed initials or an engraved name and date to make your gift extra special.

Groomed Groomsmen

You want your best men to look, well, their best! 

As facial hair has increased in popularity, it makes sense that some or all of your groomsmen have a beard or mustache that needs taming. Consider a beard comb/brush set with a woodsy scented oil that any man is sure to love! 

For those that do not have facial hair, consider a box of shaving needs such as a nice razor, shave butter, and aftershave. Guys need pampering too!

Bonus: your future spouse will be thrilled to have well-groomed gentlemen in their wedding pictures.


For those who want to toast to your next phase of life, you may find your groomsmen gift in your local brewery!

A bottle of their favorite liquor tells your groomsmen you really put some thought into their gift. They will think of your friendship every time they pour themselves a glass.

In addition to bottles of liquor, there are many alcohol-related gifts you could choose from as well.

A personalized flask will be cherished for a lifetime, and allows your groomsmen and best man to carry a little bit of liquid courage around with them while getting the wedding guests dancing!

You can also personalize beer mugs and shot glasses for at-home use, as well as corkscrews and bottle openers.

For a unique and creative gift, hit up your local thrift and antiques stores for old bar signs or have a small personalized one made for each groomsman. What a cool gift to hang in their home bar, media room, or man cave!

Going out in Style

Are you and your best pals a stylish crew? Gift something you all can wear at the wedding and beyond!

Some ideas that we recommend are:
