When you get married, you will be choosing gifts for an occasion and for people you may not be used to getting gifts for. Your groomsmen fall into this category and there are all types of choices out there for groomsmen gifts. Here are a few tips to help you choose the right gifts.
Know your Groomsmen
Your groomsmen may be a very unique bunch of guys. Maybe they love drinking beer, or maybe they all play the same sport. An understanding of your guys will certainly go a long way to choosing a gift that's more than just a wedding novelty.
Know your Budget
Weddings are expensive, and if you're paying for the wedding, the groomsmen gift budget may be a bit tight. If you have a large wedding party, this can make it hard to find something for everybody without going over budget. Understanding the maximum amount you can spend per person will help you choose the right gifts for your guys.
Choose a Direction
Groomsmen gifts can be funny, serious, practical or even novelties. You want to know which direction to go in, and then go in that direction. For example, if all of your groomsmen love to drink beer, a personalized beer boot stein may be the perfect choice.
Choose Something they can Use
Sometimes, choosing the wrong groomsmen gift will come back to haunt you. Maybe you are helping your buddy move a few years later only to find out they keep their gift hidden in storage. Choosing something they can use, such as a beer glass, is always a good idea.
Personalize the Gift Properly
How often do you think your friends will use a beer glass if you put your name, the bride's name and your wedding date on the glass? Instead, personalizing the gift with each groom's name will go a long way. This will allow them to use it without having to explain to their other buddies, why it has a couple's name and a date on it.
If you want to pick the perfect groomsmen gifts, make sure you use these five tips. They will go a long way to helping you choose the right gift for your guys and for this special occasion.
