Your best buds deserve only the coolest gifts. After all, you would not have made it this far without their helping hands and words of encouragement. For all the hassle they went through- from booking reservations for the venue, lending their cars for the wedding day, to giving you words of encouragement when you're having cold feet- they all deserve a bit of something from you, don't they? Of course they would say that you should not have bothered because that's what friends do, but that's the least you can do to them for making this event much easier for you.
The coolest gifts are those that are contemporary, a bit hip, and not over the top. I explored the malls and browsed the web for the coolest groomsmen gifts around. If you are having a hard time choosing the perfect gift for your guys, here are some items I personally recommend.
This will be loved by the busy executive who's chasing the American Dream, by the freelance writer who's always on the go, and by the professional student who frequents coffee shops for the free Wi-Fi. Actually, this will be loved by every modern man who owns a laptop. There are plenty of designs and colors to choose from. Choose the bags based on your groomsmen's personalities and they'll appreciate it that much more.
Personalized Pocket Knife & Multi-Tool
The pocket knife is a mini tool that has a spoon, fork, can opener, knife, and even a toothpick. This is a must-have for every man whether or not he's into camping and the great outdoors. It's useful, convenient, and easy to carry. Personalize it by engraving his name on the knife. In that way, your gift becomes indispensable.
Duffel bags are perfect for the sporty bunch and for the gym rats. This may be a little more expensive than other groomsmen gifts but it is definitely worth it. You can also include a personalized water bottle and a towel to complete the set. Expect big smiles on the groomsmen's faces when they open their presents.
Lighters are one of the items that we often take for granted. During a drinking spree, we tend to lose it before we even finish our 5th beer. Personalizing lighters make it worth keeping and by having your friend's name printed on the lighter lessens the chances of anyone stealing it. Choose elegant metal lighters to make your gifts classy. Engrave it with a funny quote or the recipient's initials.
Personalized Flash Drives
In this computer-dependent age and time, it is impossible for anyone to survive without a flash drive. Give your buds personalized flash drives with funky designs and it will surely be their favorite gadget. There are tons of custom-made designs to choose including USB watches, USB lighters, and many, many others. Pick one suit your friend's personality and lifestyle. If you want to go the extra mile, go ahead have his name or a short message printed on the case. Personalization shows you took time to make it thoughtful.
Choosing groomsmen gifts should not be hard if you know where to look. Before you head to the malls, check some stores online to save you time and energy. Getting useful items make them cool gifts, but adding personalization make them thoughtful, and thus ideal groomsmen gifts.
