My husband just picked presents that he thought they would like and didn’t make them anything to do with the wedding. I think one got a blender, one got a mandolin (we had two foodies!), one got bar glasses, and one got whiskey. So I’d just shop like you would for their birthday.

Engraved swiss army knifes are a great gift for the groomsmen!

Pepper15:  One of our groomsmen doesn’t drink and neither does my husband. For their gifts I gave them all airplane cufflinks the morning of our wedding, (including my H, it was a surprise), and the gift from us was a combat survival knife. The theme was ‘thanks for suriving our wedding’- HA! Adorbale.

Anywho, it might not work for everyone but our guys loved it. They’re all outdoorsy people and the gift was fitting.

I’ve seen cigars, tie clips, cuff links, ties, a pair of shoes (that they wore for the wedding), gift cards…really anything you guys want to give!

We’re doing engraved knives for my FI’s groomsmen. They’re all outdoorsy guys so I know they’ll be used. They come with a nice black jacket. We’re also buying their ties as part of their gift since we wanted something a little different.

My hubby gave his groomsmen monogrammed weekend bags and then filled them with a nice bottle of liquor and a board game that varied depending on each of their tastes. His friends are all boozy super nerds that like to travel a lot so it was perfect!

What about cool bow ties?

Or if they’re into something geeky like Star Wars or video games, you can get them something related to that. Think Geek and Modcloth have a lot of cool paraphernalia (not just clothes but mugs, etc) about nerdy things. If they’re into photography, there’s a mug shaped like a camera or if they’re into science, there’s a shower curtain with the periodic table on it. Random but cool.

I love all of these non-drinking gift ideas. How about gift cards to their favorite restaurants? It’s not something that they can have as a keepsake; however, it is something they will enjoy. I also like the idea of travel bags — small toiletry bags with a monogram.

Pepper15: hey we did what  weatherbug did. Got them from Pottery barn…with initials and shipping to Canada go them for 100$ but worth it. Great quality. It’s cheaper in states

OP, we got ours from bobblemaker.com. they are kinda pricey ($90+) buuut they do have a 20% off sale going on right now so it wasnt as bad.

Do the ties count? My fiance was a best man recently and all the groomsmen got matching ties to wear for the wedding and keep. They were fancy. I thought it was practical and also a nice “gift”. And maybe socks too 🙂

We are getting our GMs Converse that my Fiance is personalizing on their site before he orders. It’s not really a flashy thing but these guys (including my FI) are very laid back and when I began choosing tuxedos my poor guy went with the flow. I could tell he wasn’t 100% happy so I asked if they wanted to wear converse as their shoes and you’d think I offered him a million dollars. So not only are they wearing them that day but hopefully they’ll have them for awhile and remember our wedding every so often.
