35 Awesome ways to thank your groomsmen (and groom!)

So you want to thank the boys for being there for your man, but you don’t know where to start? Today I give you 35 ideas that are guaranteed to be a winner (if you follow the tips below!) My pick of the bunch? Keep reading to find out…


TIPS:

1. Get something they will actually use… Unless they hunt, don’t buy them an ammo box (unless you think they will appreciate it for other uses) If they are into photography get them a camera strap, if they travel, some cool kit or a passport cover and if they are writers get them a nice journal. Don’t buy cufflinks if they don’t wear suits (they will just end up in the bottom draw) golf gear for the golfer.

2. You don’t need to get them all matching goodies. For reasons above.

3. Stick to your budget, unlike girls (some, girls), guys wont like you more if you spend up large on their gift.

4. Stay away from anything too personal e.g underwear, watches, clothing unless you know the person inside out. While it might seem like a cool gift, they might feel a little awkward it they don’t like it or don’t fit it and never end up wearing it (like that crazy hat your nana made you that you felt obliged to wear when they come to visit).
