So you finally got up the nerve to pop the question. Your friends have confirmed that you would have to be an idiot not to marry this girl. You picked the reception hall, hired the DJ and carefully selected the menu. Your minister is lined up, the tuxedos and dresses have been picked out and you booked the limos. You're all set for your big day, right? Wrong! You forgot the most important thing of all.
After the wedding reception is just a memory, your in-laws are on your last nerve and you've had leftovers for five straight nights, who is going to be there to take you out for a night of fun? Who's going to be there to go to a ball game or plan a card night? That's right, your best friends. More specifically, your groomsmen. So how do you thank these gentleman who are standing beside you on the biggest day of your life? How do you thank them for being your best friends? They've rented the tux, paid for the bachelor party and showed up at the ceremony. Now they deserve a truly special gift to show them how much you appreciate all they've done. Personalized groomsmen gifts are the ideal way to express your gratitude.
Sure, anyone can get them tickets to a ball game or a football helmet you can eat chips out. It takes a little extra effort to choose a gift that reflects their personality and then go that extra step and add their initials and the wedding date to it. You have so many different personalized messages to choose from with your groomsmen gifts as well. Not crazy about initials and a date? How about their first and last name or their name and job title? There are no limits other than your imagination.
The important thing to remember is that aside from the personalization, make sure to choose the gifts for your wedding party based on each guys personality. Don't get Joe the janitor a business card holder or Pete the recovering alcoholic a liquor flask. There are so many different types of gifts to choose from that you'll be able to custom tailor each guy's gift to his likes and interests.
There are some universal gifts that you really can't go wrong with. A nice set of cufflinks that your men can wear on your wedding day and at every formal event they go to is sure to be appreciated. A personalized pocket watch is an item they might not get for themselves yet it is so retro cool these days that they will almost certainly love it. The important thing is to always remember that the thought behind the gift is more important than the gift itself. What you're really trying to say, no matter what the gift, is thank you for being my friend and standing beside me on the most important day of my life!.
