In part 3 of our series we will explore gift ideas for your groomsmen. We have discussed this topic in the past and have written about The Top 5 Groomsmen Gift ideas but this time we would like to discuss some of the ways we can personalize them.
Think about what you and your groomsmen do on your free time. Are you all into sports? Are you all college buddies? Or are your groomsmen a mix of old friends, new friends, and relatives. It isn’t always the case that all the groomsmen are friends with each other. You want to take this into account when purchasing them their gifts. There isn’t a rule that states that they all must receive the same gifts, instead personalize it to each of them.
As an example lets pretend your wedding party is made up of your 2 college buddies, your older brother, and your best friend growing up. All these people may not want a leather wallet. Instead break them down into groups. You know your two buddies from school would appreciate a personalized beer mug, and you know that your brother may not. Instead get him something that he will like. Perhaps he would much rather have and appreciate a wine accessory kit because he has a love of wine. The thought that you personalized his gift specifically for him will surely mean something special. Last but not least you want to remind your best friend from home about that road trip you took at the end of high school and how much it meant to you. A personalized travel bag would be perfect for this occasion.
In the end, take a little time to think about each member of your wedding party and thank them for all that they have done.
