Wedding day is around the corner and for many, it’s one of the most celebrated days of our lives. The hype is boundless, the details are a second job and the stress can be cut with a knife. We all want that day to be ideal, but often lost in the hoopla is one particular element that no man should overlook: the groomsmen. During the pre-wedding phase, your mental bandwidth has been squeezed to that of a pocket mouse. You want to honor your men in a way that reflects what they mean to you, but often don’t know where to start or have the time to research. That’s where our story begins – we want to make it easy for you.
Groovy Groomsmen Gifts was founded by two brothers, both married and part of multiple wedding parties who noticed a consistent theme of tacky gifts and a total lack of creativity. With a full recognition that men aren’t natural shoppers, they saw a need for one comprehensive stop to make their lives easy during this amazingly maddening stretch. Our value proposition to you is one place with a constantly growing cache’ of great gift possibilities for any type of man. Oh yeah, and amazing customer service. Our staff is constantly searching for sensational groomsmen gift ideas that embody a balance of tradition, creativity and functionality. The Groovy credo is to ensure that whatever we sell, it doesn’t end up in your groomsmen’s basement box.
