Wedding Planning 101: Five Great Groomsmen Gift Ideas

When my husband and I were discussing gift ideas for the bridal party, we agreed on one thing: these gifts should be practical. We both wanted to purchase some great gifts that our bridal party would be able to use time and time again.

While I was shopping for my girls, my husband wasted no time in purchasing some kick ass gifts for his best guys.

Converse Sneakers

My husband knew how uncomfortable those tuxedo store dress shoes were going to be and he didn’t want his groomsmen to suffer either. He wanted to make sure they were all on the dancefloor the entire night, so he decided to buy a pair of these great Chuck Taylor’s for each of his groomsmen. He even bought himself a white pair and personalized them with our wedding date!

Shoe Bag

The boys needed a bag to carry their awesome new kicks in, so my husband bought these shoe bags and personalized them.

Money Clip

He found these great money clips at Oriental Trading Company and personalized them for each of his groomsmen.


My husband bought each groomsman a pair of cufflinks, either of their favorite sports team or of their favorite superhero. They all wore them the day of the wedding and the photographer captured a pretty great picture of all of them.


Everyday dress socks were a great way to spruce up the suits. The guys could wear them again for another event or even for work.

What do you think of these gifts? What else would you buy your groomsmen?
