A wedding is a time of great joy and great expense. After you've already spent a fortune on the dress, flowers, cake, reception, honeymoon, photographer, videographer, deposits, dinners, napkins and matchbooks, guest books, pens, wedding favors, jewelry, tuxedos, shoes, accessories, and everything that goes into making a wedding the biggest party of your life, you still need to wrap up your groomsmen gifts.
It is customary to give token gifts to your best man, groomsmen and ushers in your wedding party. After all, they have stood by your side throughout the whole planning process for the wedding and will be a big part of the festivities on the wedding day itself.
These gifts do not have to break the bank. You can still get unique and cool groomsmen gifts for $20 or less. Some can still be engraved for this price!
Suggestions for gifts under $20 include:
- Glass Mugs or Glasses
- Personalized Baseball
- Groomsmen Gift Lockblade Knife
- Silver Plated Money Clip
- Swiss Army Knife
- Cigar Holder
- Keychain Bottle Opener
- Travel Mug
- Zippo Lighters
- Leatherman Micra Keychain Multitool
- Pocket Watches
- Liquor Flasks
Groomsmen gifts can still fit into your squeezed wedding budget. Show your guys you appreciate them, but there is no need to go over budget either. Give yourself 4-6 weeks before the wedding day to order your groomsmen gifts as this will allow plenty of time for engraving and shipping of your items. Rush orders are always an option but will add to your cost.
Engraved gifts are especially nice as the recipient will feel special and appreciated. You can't just run out and buy an engraved gift at the mall. The gift recipient will think that you put in extra time and effort (even if you only ordered online and had them shipped to you!) by giving a gift with his name or initials on it. Engraved gifts are also the kinds of gifts that last for years and years. Have you ever thrown out something with your name on it? I haven't. The engraved gift will last for many years and will remind the recipient of your friendship and good times together.
