re: Ideas for Groomsmen gifts?


i got my guys a soft cooler that holds a 12 pack of bottles. Had it personalized for each of them with their Monogram (didnt use girly arse script. Used a more "manly" looking style) then i also filled them with the guys favorite beers.

They all seemed to love it and got told by many other people that they thought it was one of the better gifts they had seen.

I think total it ran me about $40 per including beer

This is similar to what we got. We didn't get it personalized though, figured our best man wouldn't want his name on stuff.



(it has an carrying shoulder strap with it as well not shown in pic)


And like others said, you can fill it with their favorite beer and put other gifts in there as well if you wanted.

I got custom collar stays of two lengths because most of them wear dress shirts daily. One had wife and I's names other had our wedding date. No problem being embarrassed by engraving because they are never seen. Also, a leather tray for change and crap with their last name on it.

Did you get it monogrammed from wherever you bought it?

Trying to find the best store to do so.

Nah, just plain. Husband figured his best man wouldn't want his name or initials on it.


His best man loves it and has used it a few times already.


I think the website he got it off of offered personalizing it.

I've been in 3 weddings in the past year.

I received (in order of best to worst)

1. Personalized pocketknife with my initials engraved on the blade

2. Travel shaving kit with my initials on the bag

3. Silver Cuff Links with my initials on them (this one ranks low because I don't own a single french cuff shirt)

I've received cuff links & pen/pencil sets before. Those are always nice.

That is an excellent gift. I've received that sort of thing as a birthday gift in the past.

I'm in a wedding next month and honestly dont expect much. I know I'll probably drop some quarters on the groomsmen that are in my wedding.

For instance, it's costing me $245 for this tux to stand in this guys wedding. He best give me a dang good gift.

Oh no, you know, this brawd has to have the best. I make the most money out of all these groomsman (except his older brother) but the rest of these guys are struggling to make it. Law students, entry level employees, etc.

I've heard a few of them complain about it. It kind of pisses me off they did this.
