In a sea of static groomsmen gifts, it requires something special to stand out. On that night when you have the unique experience to honor your men, you want to get it right. We’ve recognized an awesome gift that checks off every box of manly gift magic, and it’s the group caricature. The caricature is personal, it's unifying, it’s creative, it’s going to pull that streak of brotherhood out in your men, something all of us love to feel. A good caricature artist and a phenomenal theme is something that will sit as a staple in any man cave. A great group caricature is a story to be a told, a centerpiece to your next house party.
The theme is key, finding that story that pulls all your guys together, turns your group into a team and builds a weekend wolf pack that all your guys will remember. Sometimes it’s easy, your guys come from a core that brought you together in the first place. In other instances, it may take a bit more creativity. Below is a current list of themes that we’ve found really hit the mark in pumping up your guys.
Game of Thrones
It’s a show that’s full of rich characters and is just flat out AWESOME. It’s captivated men everywhere and every guy is excited to sit on the Iron Throne, hang with a fire-breather or put his arm around Tyrion. Bring your guys together to slay Westeros as a unit and squeeze them into the gear of the character that they symbolize best.
Whether it started as a kid with underoos or grabbed your buddy through comic books, every guy loves him some superheroes. With the movie frenzy that’s been ripping through Hollywood, they’re as hot as ever. The assortment is so deep, you can have a ton of fun mixing and matching your groomsmen against their best fit – making a conversation that will run through the night.
Maybe the most connecting of all the themes, especially if your groomsmen are passionate about one team or one sport. Throw some jerseys or helmets on with an awesome stadium in the background and you've got yourself man-cave gold.
A past time that most men seem to revel in, it’s that sacred sport that gives us guy time away from it all, in natures landscape. Throw your men in some great golf gear, put them in their truest form as a slicer, hacker or out of control golf cart. Whatever the setup, golf is a theme that brings groomsmen together.
If your groomsmen have a movie that they feel like they once lived, or just love to quote, throwing this unique theme together may be a great idea for your posse. Whether it’s an Old School feel or a Goodfellas vibe, pulling it all into a favorite movie is sure to draw a great laugh and a great wall hanging.
Put your guys at a poker table or ripping at the slot machines fully adorned in their stylish Vegas garb and you have caricature magic. Whether it’s in the casinos, at the pool or in the club, if Vegas is the thing your groomsmen love to do, it makes for a rock star, creative theme.
For those that do it, it’s a passion like none other. And man does it have detail specific to the sport. With rifles and camouflage, in a tree stand or with a duck call, hunting is a bonding of brethren like none other. In the same family is fishing, but anything that passionately gets men up in the wee hours to get together is a theme worth exploring.
New on the scene but drawing a ton of passion, UFC is a cool theme that can really rock the group caricature. Throw all your groomsmen in a cage bloodied together, passed out or in a headlock and you have a theme that is going to be a great conversation for a long time.
