Let’s be honest: choosing Best Mangifts induces more stress thanchoosing a Best Man.
Your Best Man is likely someone who’s been there for you over the years, and Best Man gifts are a way to say thank you, not just for the role he has played in your wedding preparations, but for the role he has played in your life. (No pressure, right?)
No wonder guys get overwhelmed when choosing groomsmen gifts -- and especially Best Man gifts.
The good news is that you probably already have great insight into what to get your Best Man. Take cues from what you already know about him, what he likes and enjoys. Add a personal touch if you can, and you will have a winning gift.
Here are some of our favorites this year:
Give him something he can wear in the wedding or on a special night out.
Personalized socks can be funny or sentimental.
It’s hard to go wrong with a classic necktie or bowtie.
Engraved with his initials, cufflinks can be treasured for a very long time.
Celebrate the world beginning to open back up.
A leather luggage tag is a special detail no matter how far you roam.
Any world traveller will appreciate one of these.
This is a practical gift for any guy who travels, whether for business or pleasure.
Some classic Best Man gifts are included in the categories above, but there are a few more classics we still want to mention.
If he doesn’t already have one (and a spare) a multi-tool or pocket knife always makes a great gift.
Every man needs a fine wallet or money clip: a tried and true gift.
Give him a personalized whiskey or pint glass and/or a bottle of his favorite brew.
Choose a gift for your Best Man that reflects your appreciation for him and for the relationship you have. Don’t be afraid to have some fun with it! And as we mentioned before, add a personal touch wherever you can.
