6 Must-Have Gifts for Groomsmen

When it comes to groomsmen gifts, our suggestion is to cut out the cliche gifts such as pens, shot glasses or pocket knives and consider some of these less traditional items they’ll use for years.


1. Wooden Six Pack
Walk into the party with your own wooden six pack. This is a cool, alternative groomsmen gift that will have everyone talking. The carrier is designed to be lightweight yet protective so your bottles are kept safe during transport.
$42, WoodThumb.com

2. Two-Tone Linen Pocket Square
J.Crew’s pocket squares are made of the finest Italian linen. Your groomsmen will look sharp tipping this out of their pocket. Get them monogrammed for futher personalization. They also have them in white if this marigold color is too bold.
$45 + $10 for monogram, JCREW.com

3. NYC Subway Tokens Cufflinks
Rather than personalize a gift with a monogram, get even more creative! If you’re having a NYC wedding these cufflinks will put your groomsmen back in a New York state of mind every time they wear them and it provides a fun segue for telling wedding day memories.
$64, Owen&Fred.com

4. Luxury Soap Box
Cool Hunter identified Pearl + Luxury soap as a hot holiday gift, but we’re loving them for groomsmen! Janet Jay, former head of marketing for Diane Von Furstenberg and Estee Lauder began this soap company as a hobby and its popularity has since exploded! This boxed set has 4 travel-sized soaps and the cedar box itself doubles as a soap dish.
$35, PearlPlus.com

5. Monogrammed Round Flask
Who wouldn’t love being gifted a flask? Hey, your bridal party may even be able to utilize it on the wedding day! And the best part is you can personalize it with any engraving you’d like.
$20 each, TheKnotShop.com

6. Custom Leather Luggage or Bag Tags
We just love these customized leather tags. Each comes with steel cables so they attach solidly and help you ID your bag when it arrives on the luggage carousel. This product was named by GQ as “best stuff” so it’s basically guaranteed to be a hit among your groomsmen!
$81 for a pair or $45 for one, Owen&Fred.com
