After months and months of planning, your wedding day finally arrives and you need to thank those who supported you during the planning process and who stood by your side when you made your lifetime commitment to your spouse. If it feels like the pressure is on to choose just the right gift that is because it is. The people around you have given their time, effort, and money to your wedding and while they may have it no other way, it is still important to say thanks when the big day arrives. There are plenty of options for acknowledging the efforts of the groomsmen, but you need to make sure you choose just the right option for the special guys in your life. If your guys are a bunch of outdoorsmen who love adventures in nature, consider giving them hunting knives or fixed blade knives. You can even add engraving so every time they use their gift, they will think of you.
Another option for a practical gift that prompts thoughts of your thankfulness is a pocket watch. Pocket watches are the sort of item a person always wants but never invests money in buying for themselves. They are a cool way to tell time when you are dressed up and if the guys choose to wear them for the wedding; it is a fun, old-fashioned accessory that can add to the ambiance of the wedding and the photos. All of the groomsmen will look sharp, posed in similar clothing with the glint of a pocket watch chain on their wedding clothes.
If you are celebrating your big day with guys who like to enjoy alcoholic beverages, flasks may be the answer to your gift-giving dilemma. You can inscribe a flask as easily as any other metal item and nothing says special occasion like carrying around your own supply of alcohol. If you take time to fill the flask for everyone ahead of time, you also have a solution for taking the edge off of wedding nerves.
Those with groomsmen who do not need their liquor within reach can still consider an alcoholic gift for saying thanks. Try brewing your own beer and supplying your groomsmen with a collection of your own brew. This is a personalized way of saying thanks and is just as fun to make as it is to give. If you are an experienced brewer, try creating a special brew for the wedding. If this is your first time, try something simple and brew with your bride. Create one-of-a-kind labels so the guys can hold onto their bottles once the beer is gone.
Finally, consider the gift of beauty for your wedding day thanks. All too often the ladies are treated to spa treatments so they look their best on the big day but the guys are forgotten. You can give your groomsmen gift certificates for professional shaving and hair cut services so they look their best too. This is a great way to be pampered and it has the added benefit of ensuring everyone in your wedding party is looking their best for photos.
