For your big day, your groomsmen will shell out anywhere from $500 to $1500 a person for the privilege of being in your wedding party. It’s an expensive honor, so you want to be thoughtful when offering them a token of your appreciation. Look no further, we have you covered. Best of NJ scoured the Interwebs and came up with a handy gift guide full of cool ideas for the guys who have always been there for you (and maybe bailed you out a few times).
You may even want to pick up some of these items for yourself.
For the Traveler
Weekender Bag from Betabrand
Your groomsmen are going to need something to pack their stuff in for your wedding weekend, which makes this combination garment bag and duffel from Betabrand the perfect choice for your crew. Featuring pockets for shoes, laptops as well as an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap, don’t be surprised if your friends report their better halves have “borrowed” it!
For the Music Aficionado
Guys who takes their music seriously will appreciate these retro-inspired iPhone docks and amplifiers. The Edison Amp is really retro. We’re talking Thomas Edison and the gramophone retro. But its hardwood base and hand spun copper bell that directionally amplifies sound are definitely modern.
For the Sports Superfan
Customized footballs, basketballs, soccer balls, volleyballs and gloves from Wilson
Most sports fans would love a new game ball or baseball glove. But these just aren’t any sports fans. These are your groomsmen. Therefore, they’ll need the proper equipment and the right team colors for your wedding. With so many customization options, you’ll find something every fan (and weekend warrior) will appreciate.
Price: Balls: $65-$85; Gloves: A2000 series $360 or A2K series $550
For the Outdoorsman
Funnel Flasks from Vargo Outdoors
An engraved flask as a groomsman gift might be a cliché, but hear us out. This 8 oz. titanium flask from Vargo Outdoors has an integrated silicon funnel, so it’s easy to fill up and empty. It’s also made of material that won’t alter the taste of your groomsmen’s libation of choice. And yes, it’s engraveable, because engraved flasks are a cliché for a reason. They make great gifts.
For the Tech Geek
Universal remote from Pronto Peel
Put the fun back in Sunday Funday while rescuing your groomsmen from the Jungle of TV Remote Hell with this salt-shaker size controller. The Pronto Peel turns any iPad or iPhone into a universal remote, so your groomsmen can control their TV right from their smartphones, the way nature intended.
For the Foodie
Grown men cook. They don’t (always) order takeout or hit up their local bar & grill for dinner. If your friends are beginner cooks, Mantry Box will surely lure them into the kitchen. Every two months, they’ll get a box filled with fresh, artisan ingredients as well as easy-to-follow recipes. Each box is built around a theme such as Pizza Party or Tailgate Tour, and comes with a pamphlet about the products. The first shipment comes in a handmade wooden crate, a Mantry trademark.
