Groomsman's Gifts: Best Man Souvenir

Nov 23, 2007
Choosing a suitable and appropriate gift for the groomsman is not as complicated as you think it is. The groom's best man or the principal groomsman who is considered his best friend attends to the bridegroom on his wedding day and basically plays the same role as what the maid of honor does to the bride. The groom generally wants his closest friends or best friends to take part in the wedding ceremony, which is considered a very special day for him.

When picking and choosing a groomsman's gift you should do a little research such as his likes and dislikes. Is he into sports? Is he athletic? The hobbies of the groomsman are also important considerations. Does he have a certain collection of some stuff? You should also follow your instincts and not only focus on what the groomsman likes or is interested in so that the gift would not be a cliché gift or just like the gifts that are typically given. You should have a combination of both influences. Another important aspect to consider would also be your budget and the number or amount of gifts you are going to give.

If you only have one groomsman then you are not that pressured in selecting a gift but in case you have more than one groomsman then you better think twice. Give a gift that would not only remind him or them of your wedding day but also a gift that will last a lifetime.

The most common groomsman gifts are cigars. When you think about it most men smoke. If the best man is not a smoker but collects them then this would be a great gift still. You can even add a cigar holder or ashtray to go with your cigars. If he smokes then at least the ashtray and cigar holder is left which is still a souvenir for your memorable day.

Other suggestions for wonderful gifts could be wine, a bottle container for wine or a liquor flask, a key holder, a mug, a Swiss army knife, engraved gifts or gifts wherein their names could be stitched like a towel or pillow. If the groomsman is already a professional it would be preferable if you could give a gift which he can use for work or in his office like something he could place his calculator in, a paper weight, a business card holder, fountain pen or desk clock, all of which where you can have your wedding date engraved.

If your best man is into sports or is a sport fanatic then it would be great if you can give him a fishing rod, golf balls, basketball, soccer ball, baseball or a baseball bat, tennis racket, hiking or camping gears, or just to be unique you can give away tickets to a concert or sporting event.

There are a lot of gift varieties that you can think about. What's most important is you follow your heart and choose the best gift for your groomsman. Be unique and be creative.
