Groomsmen gifts can be pretty tricky. “It’s the thought that counts,” they say, but what do you really want to convey with shot glasses, bag tags, and beer mugs? The only thing these communicate is the lack of thought put into them. 

Ditch the cliché tokens. After all, your groomsmen probably have several of them piling up like clutter, and that’s money you don’t want to waste. Why not spend on something they’ll enjoy instead? From stylish accessories to interesting gadgets, there’s something for every groomsman on this list.

While it’s a fantastic opportunity to give your groomsmen a necktie that follows your wedding theme, it’s wisest to get them a tie in a style that they can use even after the event. A cool yet elegant knit tie is appropriate enough to wear to (relaxed) weddings, business lunches, and cocktail parties.

2| Stainless steel liquor flask

A hip flask is an excellent choice provided you can keep your entourage’s alcohol intake at bay. Pick a classic finish in sturdy metal—a leather casing would be a nice touch. Then, fill your groomsmen’s flasks with a reasonable amount of premium liquor like a nice single-malt whisky or bourbon.

3| Eco-friendly cutlery kit

Give them something truly useful. This cutlery kit comes with a carry pouch so your groomsmen won’t have to deal with spoons and straws swimming in their bags. This gift is a nice touch, too, especially when you’re gunning for an eco-friendly wedding.

4| Cufflinks

A pair of cufflinks is one of the most classic groomsmen gifts. You can give your groomsmen cufflinks in a fun and unique design that hints at your wedding theme, but remember, while these can be whimsical, they shouldn’t be too flashy. 

5| Pocket army knife

Never underestimate the value of a good pocket knife, especially if your groomsmen are outdoorsmen. A versatile multi-tool can cut through ropes, open a corked bottle, chop fruit, and even file fingernails. The sharper, the better.

6| Hangover kit

We all know the debauchery doesn’t end after the bachelor’s party—it continues well into the reception and the after-party. Equip your groomsmen for the wild night ahead with a hangover survival kit that contains the essentials like painkillers, band-aids, and a packet of coffee.

7| Socks

One way you and your groomsmen can match is with socks. The best socks are those that show off your personality or break the stiffness of a suit. You can even get them personalized—just make sure to have them embroidered on an area that is concealed like the hems or ankle sack.

8| Mini speaker

The bride doesn’t have to be the only one with a beauty sequence on the morning of the wedding. Get yourself and your groomsmen ready with tubs of pomade that will set flawless fades and slicked-back pompadours. There are several pomades on the market, but local brand Eight Wolves is a favorite that promises old-school style.

You can never go wrong with leather goods. They deliver a stylish look and takes on a nice, weathered appearance as they age. Keep phone cables and power banks tidy with these three-in-one clip organizers, which are made with authentic, tanned leather. That means they will last longer than synthetic counterparts.

11| Cigars
