When it comes to bridal party gifts, the bride usually has no problem finding the perfect gifts for the maid of honor and bridesmaids. It’s no lie that for women, sentimental and memorable always make things more enjoyable and special. But when it comes to finding the right gifts for groomsmen, the task can be a little bit of a challenge. It’s not so much about the fact that men are harder to shop for; but on a day like this, it can be harder to express the appreciation for each groomsman’s participation without getting too “mushy.”
So, to help him come up with good ideas for groomsmen gifts, it might be helpful to think about the location of the wedding, or even the time of year when it will be held. This will allow him to get his groomsmen something functional and useful for the big day. For example, the groom can hand out matching ties or vests that fit the color scheme of the wedding, or (with bride’s approval) personalized accessories are always a good option as well.
Stick with a theme
To help him choose the right gifts for his groomsmen, there are several ways you can go about it. First, you can come up with a theme for the entire bridal party and make that the focus of the gift choice. It might be something to wear, making for fun wedding party photos and an entertaining reception. If you really plan it right, you can tie in the gifts to the entire wedding, making them a part of the décor and/or style of the wedding. And because weddings nowadays always seem to have a theme that has some significance to the couple’s relationship, it will make it the whole day more personal and romantic.
Boys will be boys
If we are being honest, it’s likely that most guys won’t exactly be comfortable taking part in the couple’s “story” or theme, so it might not suit the groomsmen to give them something theme-related. This does not mean that they can’t receive something personal and unique. There are many gifts out there that can be personalized with a message to make it more special and sentimental, but not so frilly. And if it is a practical gift on top of that, well, it only makes it that much better of a gift.
Buying the right groomsmen gifts does not have to be that difficult of a task. There are many ideas out there that are unique and special and will show the groom’s appreciation in a simple and thoughtful way. The challenge of shopping for the perfect gifts can be quick if you stick with a theme or opt for something more traditional. It is important to show appreciation to the bridal party, and can be easily done with a small sentimental gift. Naturally, he will likely need some guidance, but that’s why he is marrying you anyhow, right?
