When the big day is looming, it’s likely that you’ll have a great deal to think about, from your hair to your bridal accessories. Your wedding day is meant to be the best day of your life, but the run up to it can certainly be stressful in terms of the amount of organisation that will become your responsibility. Between the catering and the music, it’s easy to forget that those involved in the wedding would appreciate a small gift to say thank you for their commitment. Some brides find it easy to buy for their bridesmaids, but are stumped when it comes to choosing gifts for ushers and groomsmen. However, this doesn’t have to be the case and there are plenty of options that will be suitable for the men involved in your big day.
For the Well-Groomed Groomsman
A winning gift for any style-conscious chap is a high quality shaving kit. Some men are reluctant to treat themselves to luxury toiletries, so they often make excellent gifts. Think spicy or fresh scents, and perhaps consider a little set that includes shower gel, shaving foam, and after-shaving balm. Another smart idea is to purchase a couple of sets of individually monogrammed handkerchiefs, for a personal and stylish gift. Ties and cufflinks are also good traditional presents for ushers and groomsmen, and are guaranteed to be appreciated.
Quirky and Creative
Think outside the box when it comes to choosing gifts for your ushers and groomsmen, and they’ll remember what they receive forever. A framed collage of wedding photographs that they feature in is a simple and unique gift idea. You could also purchase a number of small trophies with the recipient’s name engraved on them, to show your appreciation of their efforts on the day.
If you only have a couple of groomsmen to buy for, you might wish to consider something a little more lavish. Every man needs a high quality dressing gown that has more in common with an elegant smoking jacket than a towelling robe. A luxury silk or cotton dressing gown is something that they’ll keep for years to come, and remember your wedding every time they slip it on.
