Gift Ideas For Groomsmen and Ushers Under 21

Groomsmen and ushers come in all shapes, sizes … and ages. And sometimes someone that is under 21 years old makes their way into your wedding party, and makes finding the right gift a little more difficult.

After all, tried-and-true groomsmen gifts include decanters, cigars, whiskey barrels, and beer glasses. Your underage groomsmen might appreciate any one of those gifts, but none is appropriate for teenagers — or groomsmen or ushers who are even younger.

So consider the following groomsmen gifts for the younger members of your wedding party. You’ll find that they are far more appropriate — and far more appreciated by the recipient.

Practical Ideas

As with any gift, you want your groomsman or usher gifts for the young gun to actually get used. So, start by looking for practical things that your young groomsmen may not have yet.

Luggage can be a great groomsmen gift for all ages, but younger groomsmen could probably use an upgrade in this area. Many are most likely using backpacks as overnight bags and hand-me-downs for longer trips.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


So consider a nicer, monogrammed overnight bag or an over-the-shoulder travel bag. You can find quality, attractive options at relatively affordable prices, and the monogram helps make the gift more personal.

 You can also opt to give shaving kits as groomsmen gifts for under-21 members of your wedding party. Again, you can find quality, attractive options at affordable prices, and most teenagers don’t yet have a nice shaving kit for their toiletries.

Tech Ideas

If there’s one thing that younger men will appreciate, it’s technology. If your groomsmen have their own phones, consider portable chargers that will give them a little extra juice at the end of long days.

Another great tech gift could be wireless headphones. Of course, you can spend a lot of money on noise-canceling wireless headphones, but you can also find great options at the lower end of the price scale.

 

Style Ideas

Let’s be honest: Most young men can use a few fashion upgrades. Consider giving them a style gift that is super useful but that also provides a boost to your under 21 groomsmen’s overall wardrobes.

You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of wayfarer sunglasses. Some young men may be using sunglasses bought off the rack at a convenience store. You can find quality, stylish, polarized options for as much as you might spend on a gift for your older groomsmen.

A nice watch with a leather band is another good style option. The cool thing about giving a watch as groomsmen gifts for under-21 members of your wedding party is that you can include a meaningful inscription under the watch face.

Finally, get your under 21-year-old groomsmen’s shoe sizes and give them a nice pair of fashion sneakers. You can find great pairs for far less than $100, and sneakers are always something a teenager can use.

Sentimental Ideas

When a young man takes time out of his busy schedule to participate in your wedding, it’s only natural to want to say “thank you” in a meaningful way. And one of the best ways to express your gratitude is to write a heartfelt note.

So, think about a book that meant something to you when you first read it — a book that has some sort of important message that would resonate with a young man. Give the book as a gift to your groomsman or usher, and write a note in the front that tells him how much they mean to you and how much you appreciate them being in your wedding.

Also, be sure to write about why you chose that specific book for them. The book could be anything from classics like The Red Badge of Courage and The Adventures or Huckleberry Finn to well-known non-fiction like The Right Stuff or Friday Night Lights.

Easy Ideas

There’s always the biggest gift-giving copout — a gift card. There are two ways to approach giving gift cards. First, you can give a gift card that you know the recipient will use. For young men, you can choose iTunes gift cards, gaming gift cards or gift cards to other stores that you know they frequent.

The second approach is giving gift cards as add-on gifts, pairing them with a pocketknife, tie clip or something else that can be monogrammed. After all, there’s not much that’s meaningful about a gift card. Pairing a gift card with another, more meaningful gift makes it more personal.

Final Idea: Always Write a Note

 As you’re considering groomsmen gifts the younger members of your wedding party, remember the cardinal rule of giving groomsmen gifts — always write a note.

We give gifts as a token of appreciation — a gesture that indicates what the recipient means to the giver. The gift is an unspoken way of saying “thank you,” but that doesn’t mean you can’t write out your thanks, too.

And consider this: Very few times in life do we have the opportunity to tell people how much they mean to us. At your wedding, you’ll be toasted and your friends and family members will get a chance to let you know how much they love you. But writing a note along with your groomsmen gifts is your opportunity to tell your friends and family members how much you love them — so don’t miss that opportunity.

Your under 21-year-old groomsmen or usher most likely haven’t had a chance to get sentimental either. They’re just too young. So take this chance to show them that men can tell each other how appreciative they are and how much they love each other. It’s a learning opportunity for your youngest groomsmen, who may be participating in the first of dozens of weddings to come in the next few years.
