5 Groomsmen Gifts You Should Avoid

  1. Custom Bobbleheads and Caricatures

Just don’t do it. The concept is cool, but these things never end up looking how they’re supposed to. Inevitably one groomsman will get ticked off because his bobblehead doesn’t look like him – and then you’re stuck trying to get a replacement. Do you really want to be dealing with this on your wedding day? Avoid the stress and avoid bobbleheads and caricatures because you can do better.

  1. T-Shirts

See above. Buying shirts for other men is a recipe for disaster because sizes vary. Someone’s shirt will fit wrong and it’ll turn into an embarrassing situation. So, while your groomsmen will appreciate you acknowledging them in any way, a t-shirt may not be the most imaginative way to do it.

  1. Sports Tickets

We agree that the idea of gifting tickets to the wedding party is appealing. What you’re really doing, however, is creating a hassle for yourself. There’s just too much coordination involved. Your friends have busy schedules, jobs, kids, etc. Be careful when assuming they can drop everything and go to a game together.

  1. Alcohol

This is a great idea in theory, but what if your groomsmen are traveling home by plane? You’ll end up paying to ship the bottles back to each guy’s house. It won’t be cheap. Let’s be honest, there will be plenty of fermented beverages consumed at the bachelor party. There are plenty of unique groomsmen gifts to choose from that your groomsmen will find memorable and useful.

  1. His Tuxedo Rental

Boring. Give him something tangible he can take home with him. While they may not expect a gift in the first place, and will be thrilled for any acknowledgment they receive, this is a great opportunity to show them your appreciation for their role in your wedding and your life. You got this!

One Final Note…

Don’t let the process stress you out. You know your buddies better than anyone. Whether it’s an old college friend, former teammate, childhood friend, or your brother, they will be happy with whatever you give them, and if not, maybe they’re not as close of a friend as you think. At the end of the day, you want to make sure that you show them how important it is that they’re by your side on the biggest day of your life and find a gift for them that they will cherish long after the ceremony.

    Don’t want to name any names, but we’ve seen some less than flattering caricatures in our time.

    Loving the chalk board mug idea – totally agree that you do not want to get him a bobble-head – cheasy.

    Most of the people I know don’t drink, so about half of this “best gifts” list would be some of the worst gifts I could give them.

      Point taken. Perhaps the other half of the list could be some of the best gifts you could give them! Feel free to contact us if there’s something specific you’re looking for. Thanks for checking out our site!

I reached out to The Man Registry on a Saturday, just 7 days before my wedding, asking for help with my groomsmen gifts. I heard back within an hour and was able to get 8 personalized coolers in just 3 days. Ordering was easy and the quality was top notch. Would highly recommend The Man Registry!

The Man Registry is phenomenal. The customer service is exceptional - seriously. You send an e-mail and a person (a friendly one at that) actually responds within an hour. Also, gift options are diverse and plentiful so you'll be able to find what works best for you.
