Groomsmen Gifts: the Most Popular Wedding Party Gifts

by ExecGifts on May 10, 2010 · 51 comments

Executive Gift Shoppe Groomsmen GiftsBuying and paying for Groomsmen Gifts for the best man, groomsmen, and other men in the wedding party including ushers and the ringbearer carrying the diamond wedding bands is traditionally the responsibility of the groom according to TheManRegistry.

Deciding what to buy is a major challenge for many, often because they struggle with how to select gifts for any occasion.  If you have no idea what the men in your wedding party would like, you may find the tips we shared in How to Select the Perfect Gift for Any Person very useful.

What is a groomsman gift? A gift given to each man in your wedding party.

Any gift that a man might like in your price range could make a great groomsman gift. You can buy the same gift for your best man, wedding attendants and ushers or select something unique for each of them.

By having their initials, name or special message engraved or embossed on what you give them you turn even an inexpensive gift into a special keepsake.

One drawback to many traditional groomsmen gifts like flasks and lighters is that they may not be suitable for non-smokers and non-drinkers.  While we will include those gifts this post will suggest many additional and unique wedding party gift ideas.

These gifts are presented in order of their popularity with one of the most popular individual offerings pictured in the image.

FLASK GIFT SETS

Flask Gift Set

Flask Gift Set with 4 shot glasses and funnel

Flask Gift Sets are the number one most popular groomsmen gift. Flask gift sets contain a personalized flask and a flask funnel and often two to four shot glasses and possibly a carrying case for the shot glasses. They range in price from just over $20 to $65 or more.

LIQUOR FLASKS

Personalized Flasks

Our Most Popular Personalized Flask

Liquor Flasks are second possibly because they can be less expensive than a flask gift set.

We offer 156+ different flasks in varying styles, sizes, colors and materials. Our flask funnel is the #1 seller in our entire store!

For those on a budget there are 52 flasks that sell between $10-$20 and you can even buy keychain flasks for under $10.

CIGARETTE HOLDER FLASKS

Flask Cigarette Holder

Flask Cigarette Holder

Cigar Flasks and Cigarette Holder Flasks are third in popularity and priced from $19.51 to $34.00. The black leather and stainless steel flask cigarette holder is particularly popular.

Who knew that cigars and cigarettes were still so popular at least for social use?

I know one sharp affiliate marketing manager and businessman who carries cigarette cases and a Zippo lighter to events even though he doesn’t smoke himself as a great way to meet people.

WALLETS

Most Popular Wallet

Our Best Selling Wallet

Most people carry a wallet and wallets personalized with embossed initials make a practical gift more upscale than a person might ordinarily buy for themselves.

There are so many different styles to choose from that we offer a Best Selling Wallets page to make it easier to choose.

Silver Business Card Holder

Silver Business Card Holder w/ Engraving Plate

BUSINESS CARD HOLDERS

Business Card Holders are an excellent choice for anyone who carries business cards. They are stylish, offer plenty of room for engraving a special message or their name or business name.

Business card cases range in price from under $10 to almost $300 making it possible to choose the perfect price level for your wedding party.

ZIPPO LIGHTERS

Linda Picken Black Lab Duck Hunting Zippo

Zippo Lighters are fifth in popularity, possibly because there are hundreds of unique designs that make Zippo lighters collectibles.  Founded during the Great Depressions, Zippo has an unusual history including the mystery of the famous missing Zippo car.

With all the really unique and beautiful collector Zippo lighters it surprises me the most popular best selling Zippo lighters are simple traditional silver or black lighters.

Maybe people don’t realize all the other choices there are from sports Zippos (NFL Zippos, NBA Zippos, MLB Zippos, and Hunting Zippos), vibrant colored Zippos and Zippos with all kinds of images including one of my favorites of the animal  Zippos the black wolf Zippo.

A Zippo Lighter Airline Approved Zippo Case makes traveling by air with a lighter far easier so if your best men smoke and travel it could be the perfect choice for them.

[NOTE: For safety reasons, Zippo lighters ship with no lighter fluid in them.]

MONEY CLIPS

Most Popular Money Clip

Our Most Popular Money Clip

Money Clips appeal to a wide range of men because they come in many styles, colors and materials. There are Sports Money Clips (MLB Money Clips and NFL Money Clips), Swiss Army knife money clips and even money clip watches.

They come in a wide range of prices from under $10 to 14K gold money clips valued at up to $2000.  To make it easier we have a page just for our most popular money clips.

SPORTS MUGS

Personalized Gold Rimmed Glass Sports Mug

Personalized Gold Rimmed Glass Sports Mug

Personalized Groomsmen Sports Mugs are extremely popular. Besides traditional glass we offer ceramic mugs and pewter mugs. If you prefer glass you might also consider our pilsner glasses or wine accessories selection.

Football fans might prefer their Team’s Official NFL pint glasses or you might find one of the hobby themed ceramic mugs is perfect.

CUFF LINKS

Black and Gold Colibri Cuff Links

Colibri Black Onyx Gold Cuff Links

Cuff links may have became popular as groomsmen gifts because many men rarely wear cuff links except to weddings and other formal occasions. If you want your best men to wear cuff links you might want to give them as their gift.

Styles range from sports to wedding specific to classic silver or gold. They range in price from $16.50 to just under $2000.In a hurry or have a slow connection? You might start with our Best Selling Cuff links selection.

SWISS ARMY KNIVES

Tinker Small Swiss Army Knives

Swiss Army Knives and Tools

Swiss Army offers an enormous selection of traditional Wenger and Victorinox Swiss Army knives, knife cases, Swiss Army Watches, Swiss Army Golf Tools and Swiss Army flashlights.

Some of their more unusual offerings include:

RINGBEARER GIFTS

Ringbearer Gifts

Ringbearer Gifts

Don’t forget your ringbearer when you’re buying gifts for your wedding party. Adorable ringbearer gifts include silver plated and pewter banks (pewter train bank shown in image) personalized Rawlings Mini Baseball Bats, personalized miniature hockey sticks, silver plated yo-yos, and autographed major league baseballs.

While these are some of the most popular gifts for wedding parties they are far from your only choices. Visit our unique groomsmen gifts page to see many more groomsmen gift ideas.

Those are well thought groom’s or groomsman’s gift ideas. I suggest crystal, silver or swarovski cufflinks are unique together with their respective cufflink boxes and will always be fashionable. Personalized gifts will always be valued.

Cufflinks do make beautiful groomsmen gifts although I suspect they may be a little more than a lot of grooms plan to spend. The only other downside to choosing cuff links over other gifts is whether the particular men in a wedding have a use for them after that one event. Some people do dress up often and others don’t.

Execgifts, I liked the whole idea and hats off to the selection of products which are to be gifted. But personally, I feel that two products should be eliminated out of the lot. The cigarette flask and the zippo. Excluding them the whole package becomes ultimate any groomsmen can gift. I want my friends to be healthy and quit the habit of smoking, hence this thought. Please chuck it if you find it irrelevant or offensive. Hope you understand. Thanks!

Hi Alex,

I totally understand where you’re coming from as I am surprised that flasks and lighters are such popular wedding party gifts.

One thing about Zippos is that there are other useful purposes for a lighter besides smoking such as lighting candles or lanterns, burning the ends of ropes (which we horse people do when braiding reins, lead ropes and lounge lines) or burning brush (which we don’t do much any more because most everything gets composted).

While I am extremely sensitive to cigarette smoke and would not give smoking related gifts myself, since I do not want anyone to tell me what to do or how to live my life I extend the same freedom to others.

I want to invite you to visit our other blogs and my primary Internet Marketing blog. See my post about KeywordLuv to find other DoFollow CommentLuv KeywordLuv blogs (mine and others).

Groomsmen not only represent the unbreakable bonds of friendship and family that made the groom who he is today, they also act as an unpaid workforce that busts their butts so the wedding can go off without a hitch. It is just fitting that we give them the perfect gifts to say how grateful we are for their efforts. I specifically love the “sports mug” because it will remind him daily that his efforts were never taken for granted.

The money clip would be a great Father’s Day gift for the Father that has everything. And that is definitely my Dad who is 90!

I purchased cufflinks for all the groomsmen and I bought ties for all the ushers. I like the cuff links that you have, but I do not see any ties. are they passe? They were very nice ties… The ringbearer did get an autographed baseball. I took him to a Tampa Bay Rays game and we went early for batting practice. We got a homerun ball hit during batting practice and then went down by the dugout and got it autographed by a few players. They were all very nice to him. Best, Houdini

Wow I must say that these gifts are really creative, yet useful at the same time! By choosing the option to engrave, you can also put in the wedding date of the couple. I am sure the groom will appreciate the practical gifts!
