Breaking Down the Best Groomsmen Gifts for 2019
1. Cigar Humidor
A glass-top humidor is a classic conversation piece that will fit into a man cave or home office. You don't want to be storing your big day cigars in the same drawer you keep your socks. Keep your cigars fresh while adding some sophistication to your home. A humidor is the perfect gift for the cigar lover or soon-to-be cigar lover. Made from high-quality mahogany, this humidor will hold between 25-50 cigars.
2. Flask & Knife Gift Box
Practical and fun, this engraved flask and knife gift box set provides it all. Every guy should have a quality pocket knife. How else are you going to do manly things like open packaging and tear down boxes from the Amazon-fueled holiday shopping season? This flask provides a fun way to conceal your favorite beverage at the next tailgate or tee time. The personalized wooden keepsake box is great because we all can't Marie Kondo our lives. We have things we want to keep track of and this box is perfect for car keys, some extra cash or hiding the aforementioned flask.
3. Sit ‘N Sip Cooler
If your groomsmen hunt, fish, or just like to sit whenever they bring their cold ones wherever they go, the Sit N' Sip cooler is the ultimate gift. Load the cooler up with up to 12 drinks and head out for the day. The camouflage design is an excellent choice for the true outdoorsman, but for the guy who rarely wears anything that isn't black or grey, you can buy the all black version.
4. Personalized Glass Beer Mug
Yes, the beer mug is a common gift for groomsmen, but you know why that is? Because beer mugs are tried and true. Again, don’t overthink it. A lot of guys like beer and to drink beer they need a mug. The days of filling up the plastic cup are over; the future is real glassware. Personalize it with their name and the date of the wedding and the two of you can reminisce about the good ole days for years to come with the latest craft beer.
5. Wall Mounted Bottle Opener
There is nothing like cracking open that bottle of beer you have been thinking about the minute you left work. The anticipation mounts, you go to grab that cheap bottle opener you collected years ago and disaster strikes. It has seemingly disappeared into the abyss. How do you prevent such a disaster? You mount the bottle opener to the wall! Try losing that. Your groomsmen can mount it in the garage, on the desk or if they have an open-minded significant other, right in the kitchen.
6. Grilling Tools
As an affordable option that is perfect for the best man, the custom grill set makes a true grillmaster. The set includes a spatula, tongs, and a really big fork, otherwise known as a grilling fork. All of the tools are made from rust-resistant stainless steel so they will last and hold up to the rigors of grilling that awesome piece of meat.
7. Whiskey Decanter
To get the most flavor out of your favorite whiskey or scotch, you need to store it in a clean decanter that’s separate from the bottle you purchased it in. Now, if your groomsmen don’t understand why this is, giving them a whiskey decanter could open their eyes to a new world or scotch enjoyment. Whiskey drinkers with advanced pallets don’t want the sediment that’s been lingering in the bottles while they sit on the shelves of liquor stores. Help your groomsmen receive better taste from their whiskey with a personalized decanter.
8. Bullet Shot Glasses
They may serve the exact same purpose as a shot glass behind any old bar, but if you include a bullet, now you have a decoration that’s ready to be displayed for entertainment. The bullet shot glasses have a real bullet inside them and are a great gift for avid hunters, gun collectors and members of the military. The best part is that they are made right here in the USA.
9. Flask Sets
The best groomsmen gifts are the ones that arrive in time for the bachelor party. Shot glasses always come in handy when you’re getting prepared for a night on the town with your groomsmen. This set includes a flask, 2 shot glasses, and a funnel. That's right a funnel so you can make sure every drop makes it into one of the shot glasses. Everything is neatly organized into the carrying case so you can keep track of the accessories.
10. Canvas Duffel Bag
If you’re having a destination wedding then a classy waxed canvas duffel bag is a no brainer for your groomsmen. Even if your wedding is next door, every guy needs a quality weekender bag. The zippered main compartment and front slash pocket makes this great for long weekend getaways or even heading to the gym after work.
11. Engraved Pocket Watch
While nearly all 7.6 billion people on this planet have a phone that tells them the time, a pocket watch is a statement piece for special occasions. Sure it tells time, but it is really an accessory that will set their look apart from the crowd. The gunmetal pocket watch can be engraved and includes a sleek watch face.
12. Money Clip
If you've noticed that your groomsmen carry around a small briefcase as their wallet maybe you can intervene by giving them a money clip gift. The money clip or cardholder is another common gift, but is an essential item carried by guys every day. Minimalist like the money clip with card holder that’s great for carrying cash and a few essential cards. If cash is an afterthought for them, go with a leather money clip. Finally, if they are worried their data is being swept up by anyone, go with the RFID blocking stainless steel wallet by Zippo.
13. Whiskey Stone Set
If melting ice is the nemesis of your groomsmen then the personalized whiskey stone set is a can't miss. The set includes a durable personalized wood case, 9 stainless steel cubes, and nifty serving tongs. These stainless steel stones will keep your drink chilled without melting away and diluting your drink of choice.
14. NFL Beer Mug
No matter where they are from, you can delight your groomsmen with a personalized NFL beer mug. Select their favorite team and personalize it with their name and initials. NFL fans like to display their allegiance during any occasion, and this is a great way to feed into their fanaticism.
15. Lowball Glasses
A close neighbor to our bullet shot glasses, our 8-ounce bullet lowball glasses look great on any home bar. You can order a set of 2 lowball gasses for each one of your groomsman so you always have an excuse to have a drink together when you’re visiting. These glasses come in 7 styles. Hunting enthusiasts love the antlers, but the circle and stamp give a strong traditional look to these lowball glasses.
16. Golf Divot Repair Tool
Even if they don't hit many greens, your groomsmen will look like they know what they are doing with a divot repair tool. If you have ever caught your groomsmen using a broken tee to fix the divot they made while bouncing their ball through the green on a par 3, you need to give them this tool. This gift also includes a ball marker.
17. Travel Toiletry Bag
Some adults don’t realize they need a toiletry bag until they’re out of town 4 out of every 5 weekends and traveling for out-of-town meetings. The distressed tan color of our toiletry bag is a classic that will never go out of style. It rolls up and comes with a built-in hook for hanging it up while in the bathroom. Large enough to fit the essentials but small enough that it will fit in their carry on.
18. Beer Glasses
A quality beer glass is affordable and the perfect gift that will be used for years to come. The personalized design fits 20 oz. of their favorite hoppy beverage. If you are looking for a modern option try the gunmetal design beer stein.
19. Whiskey Barrel
This is the real deal for serious home bar enthusiasts. The whiskey barrel is made from raw and authentic barreled wood. The barrel can fit up to 2 liters but is still small enough to fit on most countertops.
20. Sunglasses & Watch Display Box
There is a general understanding between adults that glasses, especially sunglasses, can go missing at any moment. Just think of how many pairs you have gone through since the beginning of 2019. The best groomsmen gifts for your wedding may be giving a helping hand to your friends. A sunglasses display box will help keep their shades in order. There is also room to fit multiple watches and whatever else your groomsmen want to stuff inside.
