Take it from a groom that just got married, if you want your groomsmen gifts to be a hit, make sure you know your guys. Every set of groomsmen are a bit different and understanding them will lead you to a gift that will be a huge hit.
There's nothing better than seeing your groomsmen fill up a personalized beer glass shaped like a boot and share pictures of different beverages in it on their social media profiles after your wedding. This is how you know the gift was really a hit.
Choosing the Right Gift for Groomsmen
The groomsmen gift isn't something you want to skimp on. However, you don't need to go broke over it either. There are so many great items to choose from and you don't have to go with the typical engraved flask that everybody does and nobody really uses after the wedding.
If you want your groomsmen gift to be a hit and you want to see the joy it brings your guys after the wedding, get them something they can use often. For example, if your guys all love beer or any other beverage, a large, personalized glass is a great way to go. They can use it for beer during the big game, iced tea on a hot summer day or for many other beverages.
So many beer glasses are made to hold only a portion of two 12-ounce beers. However, when you choose a big personalized boot glass for your groomsmen, they will have the perfect excuse to empty two full beers into the glass. This is great for making Black & Tans or just eliminating the trips in to the fridge in between beers.
Personalizing the Gift Properly
Another part of choosing the perfect groomsmen gift is personalizing it properly. Do you really think your groomsmen are going to want the date of your wedding on their gift? They don't care so much about the date, so don't include it in the personalization.
It's also best to skip anything that makes it look like it came from a wedding. Yes, your wedding day is special, but your groomsmen don't want to be toting around a beer glass with hearts on it after the wedding.
A simple personalization with their name and maybe a nickname is enough. You can even put the words "Thank You" on it if you want, but really, if their name is on it, that's all that matters.
If you want your groomsmen gifts to be a big hit, choose the right gift and personalize it right. If you do this, you will see your gift shared on Facebook and other social media outlets long after the wedding.
