More Creative Yet Practical Ideas
I know that a lot of my blog is dedicated to my lovely brides to be. But it takes two to tango so the men are clearly a big part of the wedding occasion. So today I want to throw some ideas at you for creative groomsmen gifts. The personalized flask has been done and done again; so let’s fill those flasks and then settle in to the real things that get guy’s hearts beating.
Everyone dude needs a cool travel bag to put their toiletries in, and how great would it be to have one that looked this cool and and had your name engraved on it. You can get the awesome toiletry bag pictured below for $50 on Groovy Groomsmen Gifts.
I don’t know about you, but I lose or break at least one pair of sunglasses a year. Everyone wants a cool pair of shades, but its hard to pony up for them because you know you are likely you are to lose or break them. This is why sunglasses make a great gift. Think about how cool your wedding party will look in pictures with these Ray Ban Aviators on.
While we are on the topic of fashion, every guy can use a new pair of fashionable shoes, how about a pair of Vans to replace the shoes in their smelly closet.
For the groomsmen that don’t have a decent pair of socks to wear to your wedding, save them the embarrassment of showing up to your wedding with mismatched socks by giving them a pair of groomsman socks the night before your wedding. Lets face it, no guy has control of his sock drawer so these will be much appreciated by all the groomsmen in your wedding party.
Everyone has an iPhone nowadays, but nobody’s iPhone plays music loud enough for their liking. Give your groomsmen a cool gift that they will be excited about by surprising them with an amp style retro speaker that is portable and can give those iPhone speakers a boost. Its great to take to a party or to the beach, and the girls love a guy that knows how to get a party started. Â If you’d rather be more practical,
If you would rather be more practical, the iPhone wallet serves as an iPhone case and wallet in one. Which guy wouldn’t want to minimize what they have in their pockets?
Filling the Flask
Your best man has been there for you through every NBA loss, every fantasy sports blowout, and every late night bar crawl. So celebrate him. Get him a good scotch, if that’s his poison. Look for something like Johnnie Walker Blue Label, at an average of $250 a bottle it’s not the cheapest package store run you’ll ever make; but he’s worth it. For the rest of your groomsmen ask someone at the liquor store to suggest to you a more moderately priced scotch.
For the Groomsmen that are Sports Fans
Few men I know don’t have a flare for sports. Even those who pretend they don’t have a coveted team I only find out about when we’e at Buffalo Wild Wings happy hour. Many stores offer team championship frames. Suit your groomsmen up with a championship from their favorite teams, or maybe a team you all enjoy together. They can put it in their man caves, bachelor pads, or test fate and try sticking it in their wives’ living rooms.
Another one of the best groomsmen gifts for the sports fans would be going to pro shops for their favorite team. At The Garden pro shop in Boston you can buy hockey sticks the Bruin’s players have used in games and practice. They only run about $75, so they won’t even empty your bank account.
Lastly; look into a night out with your groomsmen. Find a game you can all agree on and pick up the tickets as their gift. You can always incorporate it into a Bachelor Party, they can plan the rest of the events around the game.
The bottom line is this; while women are pleased with monogrammed bracelets and sentimental trinkets, men are men. They want practical gifts, and gifts they can enjoy on the same level we enjoy the Tory Burch summer handbag collection. Appeal to their senses, and if you’re engaged it means you’ve already grasped the concept that their senses and our senses are five whole other things. So drinks, sports memorabilia and a game are going to produce raw male emotion and will be perfect for groomsmen gifts.
