My Fiance is currently stuck on what he wants to give his best man/groomsmen as a gift for the wedding. Could you ladies please share what your FI/DH is planning on giving/gave his guys on the big day? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

My Darling Husband got his guys home-brewing kits or home-distilling kits, depending on each guy’s tastes. Since most of the Groomsmen were from out of town, he had them shipped direct to each gm’s house. The boys were thrilled with their gifts!!

We picked out a book or two for everyone in the wedding party, based on their interests. Fiance paired them with baseball caps for the guys, I paired them with pashminas for the ladies.

@Vintage Garden Bride:
My groom is buying all of the groomsmen ties to match their suits.

Monogrammed silver cufflinks off of etsy.
We had looked at pocket watches too, but the cufflinks were a fair bit less. We figured it was a safe guess no one had pocket watches and that they would be fun to play with for photos and what not.
Other ideas to help you:
Scotch/whiskey/etc, craft beer, gym bags, flip flops, nice bottle openers/corkscrews, zippos, restaurant gift cards, local sports team tickets, ties, socks, shoes, pocket squares, flasks, martini glass set, go kart gift certs, hobby related items like cycling gear, ….
I generally caution against personalized things, or single items when you usually have multiple identical ones (ie wine glasses; some people have beer glass collections).
My friend received some traditional dress when he was in a middle eastern wedding, he thought that was pretty cool.

Darling Husband gave each of his groomsmen a big bottle of their favorite liquor and a set of monogrammed rocks glasses.

Darling Husband gave two of his groomsmen an engraved flask, the other two an engraved humidor (cigar box). His 14 year old groomsmen was given a wallet with his initials engraved on it.

We’re getting them each something different.
Bridesmaid or Best Man: Visa gift card or noise cancelling headphones (haven’t decided which yet) and some cigars
Groomsmen1: Climbing cam
Groomsmen3: Small Leatherman and some books
They are also getting socks with block M’s (for the University of Michigan) to wear with their suites since Fiance, all of the groomsmen, and I all went to or are attending UofM.

Since our GMs are coming in from out of town, my Fiance is gifting them an Omaha Steaks package–what guy doesn’t like steak? That way they don’t have to travel back home with anything.
