Vote for your Country in the Battle of the Islands! Cool Groomsmen Gifts That Are Thoughtful

By Mike Cafferty

Your wedding is a special moment for you as a new couple. This is also the perfect time for you to express your gratitude and love to those people who stuck with you through thick and thin all these years. You and your groomsmen share the most wonderful memories together and they all deserve to feel special. You want to get your groomsmen the perfect thank you gift but you do not want to get all sappy and sentimental because that is just not your style. How do you do it? Here are three gift ideas I came up with that say "you guys are special to me" but not in a sappy manner.

Funny Gifts

You can find these items in joke shops and online stores or if you are creative enough, you can even make them yourself. Funny gifts are not usually practical and are usually cheaper. There are a wide variety of funny gifts that you can choose from: t-shirts or caps with funny prints or texts, underwear with funny animal design, even those collectibles found on novelty stores. Choosing a specific item could be tricky. There are some things to consider when buying these kinds of gifts. You have to be extra sensitive with the kind of humor that your gift puts across. With that, you have to make sure that you know your groomsmen very well so you can gauge well if their personality can take your humor. You want to crack them up, not offend them.


Find a good picture of your best buds, possibly one with all of you in it, and have an artist make a caricature of it. Once it's done, have it framed in a neat material. With a gift like this, you can be sure that all the guys would hang it on their walls for eternity. Although this kind of gift is sentimental, it has a fun twist to it which makes this priceless. This is a cool man gift and is highly recommended.


This could be a hit or a miss. You have to know all the guys by heart and they all should have the same taste. You can either give them tickets to a concert, to a game, or if your pocket (and bride) allow it, to a Caribbean cruise. The boys would surely be jumping for joy and planning all about it on their way home after your wedding. One major concern is their schedules. I do not recommend this if your friends are already busy people with tight schedules and families to attend to. Buy this kind of gift if your buds are still young with more spare time to fit this into their calendars.

Finding the perfect manly present for your groomsmen doesn't have to be hard. All you have to do is take time to get to know your buds again and start being creative without overloading your ideas with sappy emotions. Hopefully, these cool groomsmen gift ideas gave you creative insights. Good Luck!

    I like gifts that feeds my wants not my needs ... things that I would not normally buy ... indulgent stuff ... pamper me here ... surprise me ... but of course do consider my likes ... I do not like the idea of regifting ... someone took the time and consideration to select the gift ... I want to appreciate the thought ...

    I tend to be more practical minded in my gifts.  I try to find something that they would really enjoy, but is something they would actually want.
