Presenting your groomsmen with a thoughtful gift is a kind gesture to show your appreciation for their friendship and involvement in your wedding. Compiled below are useful and fun items to gift your guys that are a heck of a lot cooler than a run-of-the-mill keychain!

Anything Personalized or Engraved: Items that can be monogrammed with initials or nicknames are both personal and unique. Such items may include: wine tumblers, t-shirts, cuff links, bottle openers, flasks, pocket knives, notebooks, travel bag, pens... etc

Wedding Attire & Accessories: Matching accessories to top off each groomsmen's wedding outfit is a thoughtful gift and will ensure everything is coordinated to perfection. This can include cuff links, tie, socks, watch, belt or depending on the season, a scarf to wear during outdoor portraits. Looking to go the extra mile? If you're able to swing it, offering to purchase suits (or fronting the rental bill) for each of your guys is an incredibly generous gesture.

Embroidered Handkerchief: If you prefer to opt for a classic item that can be treasured for generations, consider gifting custom handkerchiefs with each groomsmen's initials hand stitched.

Custom Curated Gift Boxes: Looking for something that is perfectly curated and lavish? Source custom gift boxes for each of your groomsmen. Unique gift boxes can be found at the click of a button at Old Joy Gift Boxes, Simone Le BlancTeak & Twine and Box Fox. Shop pre-curated boxes, or if you're feeling creative, design one of your own. 


SOS Kit: They've had your back all this time, now it's time to return the favor! Assemble an emergency kit with essential items the guys may need on the day of your wedding. Pinch Provisions has a full line specifically designed for weddings - or create your own. Pair with a secondary kit to be utilized on the day after your wedding, for recovery purposes. Pinch Provisions has once again got you covered right HERE.

Subscription Based Gift: Choose a gift that keeps on giving with a subscription! Keep your bros warm with socks from The Foot Cardigan or send them a mystery to solve each month with Finders Seekers.

Beverage Related Items: Pair a bottle of their favourite liquor with some beverage related items. Whiskey rocks, bottle opener, flask or portable "water" bottle are among a few fan-favourites.

Outdoor Survival Items: Is your tribe a little more outdoorsy? Choose something your guys can take with them on their next adventure. Pocket knives and axes are a popular buy that can easily be engraved with initials.

Gym Bag: A large gym bag is useful for your groomsmen to store their essentials in on the day of the wedding. Afterwards they can use the bag to house their BCAA's, pre-workout and smelly gym shoes. Everyone's a winner!

Handwritten Notes: To top things off, include a hand written note recounting special memories... don't forget to add inside jokes to get the guys laughing. 

Looking for the appropriate time to distribute these gifts to your wedding party? Popular times to do so include: upon asking each groomsmen to be in your wedding party, at the rehearsal dinner or on the morning of your wedding day.
