I’m at the stage of wedding planning where I am trying to decide on the perfect gifts for the bridal party. A few weeks ago I posted my ideas for the bridesmaids and this week I am searching for a unique gift for the guys. I refuse to give them an engraved flask because honestly when was the last time you seen anyone with a flask….
Here are a few of my ideas. Let me know what you think.
:: Show me the Money ::
A few years ago my fiance was in his friend’s wedding and received a Coach money clip as his groomsmen gift. It was a great gift and he still uses it to this day. Not only was it practical, it’s made well and is reasonably priced at around $78. (This would be my go to gift but all the same guys will be in the wedding…and they all still use their money clip so I can’t get away with giving them each another one.)
If $78 is out of your budget, here is a less expensive version that will make a great gift.
:: The Updated Flask ::
I fell in love with this Mini Bourbon Whiskey Barrel from TheManRegistry.com. Not only would it make a great accessory for a bar it also allows you to distill your favorite bourbon, whiskey, wine, rum and tequila. The barrels can be customized for each one of the guys and priced at under $70.
:: A little Personality ::
For our reception we want the groomsmen to kick off their dress shoes and slip on a pair of Chuck Taylors. We were tossing around the idea of giving the Chucks as their gift and I am pretty sure the fact that we can customize them just sealed the deal. It takes about 3-4 weeks to process the order and you can customize each pair with the guys name and add in a pop of color. Prices vary depending on style.
If you are looking for something that requires less work, the classic black and white Chuck Taylor’s can be purchased online for only $50.
Happy Planning! xoxo
