Wedding season is upon us. For many of us, the next several months will be filled with stressed out brides, terrified grooms, and flocks of vaguely familiar distant relatives. If you’re planning your big day, needless to say you’ve got a LOT on your plate. While every aspect of your wedding is important, you should make sure to take good care of your Unpaid Support Staff/Temporary Therapists - otherwise known as your groomsmen and bridesmaids. If you’re looking for some good groomsmen gift ideas, we’ve got you covered.
This roundup will explore some good gifts for groomsmen that are definitely NOT custom-engraved flasks. We’ll explore unique groomsmen gifts that your friends will actually enjoy - gifts that move beyond the tacky and into the rare realm of actually useful.
Trayvax Element Leather Metal Wallet
Most men end up buying a new wallet every few years. Why not break that trend with a unique, durable and downright stylish Trayvax Element? This product checks all the boxes for a good groomsmens gift:
- Rugged, durable look and feel
- Actually useful
- Something every groomsman could easily make use of
- Built-in bottle opener (is it a rule that all groomsmen gifts must involve alcohol somehow?)
- Affordable yet high-quality
With a rugged stainless-steel frame, oil-tanned leather and a durable melonite finish, this wallet is built to last. Oh, and in case it doesn’t, it’s covered by a 65 year warranty.
As one of our most popular wallets, the Element is priced affordably and has custom engraving options. We have so many customers buying these for groomsmen gifts that we now offer a 10% discount when you buy 3 or more Elements.
Spyderco Manix™ 2 Lightweight Pocket Knife
Who doesn’t want a pocket knife? Skip the $10 knife that will struggle to cut butter after a few months, and go for a high-quality, durable and stylish pocket knife!
The Spyderco Manix™ 2 is an award winning knife that’s ultra-lightweight, compact and extremely useful. We’re big fans of all Spyderco knives, but this model in particular strikes a good balance between quality and price.
At just 3oz and 8” in length, this is a true pocket knife that can accompany your groomsmen on all their adventures. It’s built to last, and features an ambidextrous design that’s great for all those left-handed groomsmen we keep hearing about.
One big downside of this otherwise great knife: it’s way too small to cut wedding cake effectively.
CHEMEX Coffee Maker
We’re falling behind, guys. The Netherlands drinks more than twice as much coffee per capita than the United States. Are we gonna lose out to The Netherlands? I don’t think so! Encourage the consumption of more coffee - and better coffee - with a CHEMEX pour-over coffee maker.
CHEMEX coffee makers are simple, beautiful and timeless. They appeal to everyone from coffee snobs to the average Joe - and they make a mean cup of Joe (sorry, bad pun).
The CHEMEX produces a smooth, strong cup that does a great job of highlighting the subtle flavors of each coffee roast. It’s inexpensive yet incredibly stylish and durable. Everyone loves a good cup of coffee, so this nifty device is one of the best gifts for groomsmen - or for anyone, for that matter!
Unique Booze Gifts from SpiritedGifts
Instead of an ugly engraved flask, why not give your groomsmen a gift they can enjoy - a unique alcohol gift from SpiritedGifts.com. These guys have it all, from single bottles of 18-year scotch to unique gift baskets to custom engraved bottles of whiskey. You can even spring for a “Scotch of the Month Club” to reward your buddies for months to come. Who knows, they might even share a glass with you!
A Badass Beard Styling Kit
For your Bearded Brethren, consider picking up a Badass Beard Styling Kit from Badass Beard Care. For your Non-Bearded Brethren, get them a beard care kit anyways for a not-so-subtle hint that you’re sick of their bald face.
Badass Beard Care makes high quality beard balms and oils to help tame your man mane. They use organic and natural ingredients to keep your beard looking, feeling and smelling great. They also sell a wide variety of accessories and grooming tools that any man could make use of.
Hopefully these groomsmen gift ideas have got the cogs turning in your brain. Weddings are stressful enough - get your gift buying out of the way early so you can focus on planning your special day!
