by Chris Bajda January 15, 2019

Making your big day the best it can be starts with the right group standing at your side. Whether they’re your friends, family, or the random guys you found in the lobby, we’re talking about your groomsmen. There to catch you when you pass out, or maybe the reason for a pass out, groomsmen play an integral role in the whole wedding process. Show your appreciation for their support and dedication with the perfect gift. Not sure where to start? We’ve got a few ideas… 


You want your groomsmen to enjoy your gift, and get the most out of it. That's why it's better to go big or go home.

1. The Smoking Caddy

Something about cigars and golf just feels right. Maybe it’s the way the cigar muffles the cuss words as you shank one into the water hazard, or maybe it’s just the iconic look it gives to even the most novice golfer. With this engraved cigar cutter, your groomsmen will not only be prepared for a smoke but will also have the ability to use its magnetic ball marker, cigar rest, club prop, and even the divot repair tool. 5 tools in 1. What can that teenage caddy do again?

 2. The Mug Shot

“Mug shot” suddenly has a whole new meaning. Give your groomsmen a mug shot they actually want to remember with this personalized 22-ounce beer stein. Take a photo of your groomsmen and watch it come to life with a hand drawn caricature digitally printed onto the face of the stein. We’ll even include a caption of your choosing. You’ll receive the digital file of the drawings for safe keeping in your revenge folder on your computer.

3. Cabin Fever

Reject the 9-5 grind with this personalized ax crate sure to help your groomsmen embrace their wild side. Whether they’re suffering from cabin fever, or feeling like they want to build one, this crate can help with both. Included in the crate is a 2lb Hudson Bay steel ax, dual-grit sharpening stone, and a copy of “Good Clean Fun” by Nick Offerman. If this doesn’t help them break into the outdoors spirit, we don’t know what will!

4. High Society

Class up your groomsmen with this high society starter pack, if only for one night! This tri-pack of items includes a money clip, tie bar, and a set of cufflinks. All items are silver and stainless steel, personalized to your liking, and even comes in a wooden box for safe keeping. Give a pack and get some peace of mind in knowing your groomsmen will look top notch for your big day.

A 64 oz. growler of anything is a lot to handle. That’s why we love it and think your groomsmen will too. Make a memorable drinking experience with this personalized glass growler sure to trigger some nausea whenever it’s seen for years to come! Simply upload a well-lit (we mean illuminated) photo and we’ll sand carve and hand paint your image to make the design pop.

Everyone loves a good drink every now and then. But why settle for a mediocre beer when you can have a delicious liquor. Give your groomsmen something that burns!

There aren't better wedding gifts for groomsmen that bottles of Scotch-Whiskey, Cognac, or Bourbon. Rum is another great choice for those with a sweet tooth. If you have a wild bunch, you might think about giving out Bacardi!

Everyone loves that satisfying click when it closes. These are also customizable, so you can consider engravings for this option as well. Some boxes that are made out of wood can also show messages or names.

Sometimes the personal touch is what makes the gift all the more special. Remember to toss in a snipper for the ends of the cigars. You can buy a kit that sports several tools all in one box!

Cigar Humidor Gift

If you do get a box, make sure you choose one with a humidor to keep the cigars nice and fresh!

20. Gift Cards (Boring But Useful)
