10 Practical Groomsmen Gift Ideas

Hey, everyone! With our wedding only two months away, my fiancé Justin and I are getting down to the small details, like gifts for our wedding party. Today I'm sharing 10 groomsmen gift ideas that are all practical, ensuring that each gift is something your groomsmen will truly like and use.

This is such a classic gift, but always a great one if your groomsmen are of age. These would be great to use at your bachelor party too!


Shaving/toiletry bag
Every guy needs one of these, and I often find that many guys have never owned one. Select a sleek and sturdy design that will last them for years.


Docking stations
Now these are cool. Customize docking stations with your groomsmen's names, home states, etc. on Etsy to gift them something they've likely never received before.


Bottle openers
You can find tons of unique options for these online, so it's a gift they'll remember and reach for!


It doesn't get more useful than this since many guys carry around pocket knives 24/7.


Mugs, drinking or shot glasses
This gift is pretty standard, but still great. You can have a little fun with these by having nicknames or inside jokes etched into the glass.


Everyone needs a good wallet! Etsy has so many nice leather options that you can customize with their initials.


Whether your groomsmen are business men or they're just in need of matching ties for the wedding, this is a gift they’ll truly use. You can roll up beefy jerky or other snacks inside to make it a little more fun.


Gift cards
Men are all about practicality, so gift cards are a simple gift they'll be bound to use. Make it personal by selecting their favorite store or restaurant.


Day of fun
Plan a day for the groomsmen to spend together, whether it’s paintballing, going camping or going to a trampoline park. This gives you time to all bond together as bachelors before the wedding and it can be as expensive or inexpensive as you'd like!
