Your groomsmen are there for you to help you prepare for your big day. They planned a wicked bachelor party, participated in all of the pre-wedding festivities and help usher the bridesmaids down your wedding aisle. As the groom, it is customary for you to give your groomsmen a gift to thank them for being part of your celebration…and for hopefully putting up with the stresses that come with wedding planning! We’ve asked the grooms from our Toronto banquet hall and venue what some of their ideas were in showing their gratitude for the special men in their lives.
Who doesn’t need a swanky flask to drink out of? Flasks are the perfect gentlemanly gift to give any groomsmen. They can use it on the day of the wedding so they are not racing to the bar every second. There is something classy and sophisticated about pulling a concealed flask from your jacket pocket. There are tons of great Etsy.com websites you can order of off to make customized ones or simply hit up your nearest Urban Outfitters.
Cufflinks are a great accessory to give to any guy, especially to your bridal party who need to match in some sort of way! Cufflinks are an easy way to have that matchy match look on the male side of the party. These do not have to be your traditional steel or gold plated cufflinks, you can go all sorts of creative here. Our recent favourite Toronto wedding had the groomsmen decked out in superhero cufflinks!
Socks are another incredible accessory and much needed item for any guy. They are also perfect to go with your matching cufflinks! Wear the matching socks or similar patterns on the day and your pictures will look spectacular. Make sure to pick a bright pattern so that your men and your gift stand out.
Group Tickets to a Sporting Event or Concert
What better way to say thank you than a sporting event or concert! What a fun and lively way to give thanks to your friends while enjoy beers over a game or live music. Many venues have deals and discounts for group tickets, depending on the size of your bridal party. You can also work this into your bachelor party plans if the events align!
Shaving kits or facial essentials are what every man needs for his skin. There are such great products out there at the Body Shop or at any hip barbershop. Make sure to stack the kits with razors, beard oil, and after shave. Again there are tons of options for these ready made kits on Etsy!
When it doubt always go to the LCBO. An easy and affordable way to say thank you is with a bottle of wine or scotch. You can even customize it for each person in your party to suit what they drink. A basket of craft beers goes a long way.
