Dear Justin (aka Mr. Bieber, The Biebs, J-Biebs, Bieba Baby, Bieb-Bieb 9, etc.),
We realize your wedding celebration has had more false starts than a nervous offensive line in a noisy football stadium. To be fair, you did tie the knot last September in a New York courthouse, where you exchanged vows and filed the appropriate paperwork. But we haven’t heard a peep from the wedding bells just yet!
“All things come to those who wait” is literally us right now.
Move over, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra. We don’t have time for your right now, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Lauren Hashia. Glad you’re happy Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger, but we have the celeb wedding of the century to prepare for.
This is the American version of a Royal wedding. I mean, we are talking about the most influential pop icon of the 21st century and his super-duper accomplished model wife here. Finally, news broke that your ceremony will commence September 30. A few weeks ago, Stephen Baldwin—Hailey’s father and the brother of the more-accomplished Alec and less-accomplished Billy—told TMZ that the wedding is going down at a church in South Carolina.
It sounds like the venue was chosen by star wedding-planner Mindy Weiss. But there’s one thing Mindy must be leaving up to you — the groomsmen gifts. Which is why we felt compelled to write this letter to you, Justin. (We also put together some Bieber-Baldwin wedding gift ideas for anyone who might be invited to your wedding.)
We understand how exhausting it is to keep something this special so closed-lipped. It must have been a nightmare to see those cool, comic-inspired wedding invitations get released to the public. Seriously, well done on the save the dates. Wedding goals.
You must be exhausted. But super energized at the same time that you’re celebrating your marriage with Hailey and striving toward peace and happiness together. So let us take one thing off your plate before your big day: groomsmen gifts.
Now, we know that a successful guy like you enjoys being super generous, especially in celebration of a special day, but before you go wild, here are a few ideas that are affordable yet still pretty awesome, and some of them are even personalized to give that extra touch.
#1 Personalized Leather and Canvas Travel Kit
We know you love hiking, and there’s no better way to bond with your bros than by taking a few essentials and hitting the road together. These personalized leather and canvas travel kits are chic, durable, and practical. They measure 7 inches by 11 inches by 4 inches and are monogrammed with the first, middle and last initial.
What’s even better about this gift is that it can be used for other trips, so your friends will remember you wherever they go.
#2 A Hiking Trip In Canada
Of course, we understand that, as The Biebs himself, you might not be satisfied with just one or two groomsmen gifts; you might want to add a grand gesture as well. So how about taking your groomsmen and going on a hike in your motherland? Canadian hiking trails can’t be beat, and there are so many to choose from, such as Jasper National Park in Alberta and Banff National Park in Alberta.
To be sure, Jasper is a pretty amazing place to send the boys. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just returned from honeymoon in Jasper, not that we're suggesting you and the boys go on a honeymoon together.
#3 “Tattoo” Bachelor Party
A young Christian man like you will most likely not want to have that kind of bachelor party, and, anyway, it’s not the best idea if you want to steer clear of any tabloid drama. But your stag night can’t just be a boring old dinner at some fancy LA bistro; you need something wild and crazy too.
So, since you’re such a tattoo aficionado, how about you book out your favorite parlor and take your boys there to get matching tattoos?
Need tattoo suggestions. Our boy Action Bronson has a few I'm sure he'd share with you.
#4 Coupons For Tattoo Removal
So, maybe after watching that video you've realized tattoos aren't for everyone.
No regrets, Justin. We've got you and your groomsmen covered: tattoo removals. Truly the groomsmen gift that gives back, tattoo removal is a perfect way for you and the boys to remove any unwanted tatts -- say, like the names of ex-girlfriends...not that we have anyone specific in mind (ahem).
#5 Personalized NHL Locker Room Print
We know the truth: you can’t be friends with Bieber unless you’re also a die-hard NHL fan (or at least you try to be). So why not immortalize that bond by getting each groomsman a personalized NHL Locker Room print? The official jerseys feature the names of the top players of the team, and one of the jerseys will have your groomsman’s name. All NHL teams are available, though we haven't yet found one for your local squad, we'll sure ask around...
#6 Personalized Cuff Links
Sometimes you just want to go the more traditional route and keep it simple. Or it's the night before the wedding and you're just reading this and need something FAST.
Either way, we've got you covered. Look no further than personalized cuff links engraved with your groomsman’s initials. Or, hey, you can even get them all engraved with your initials if you think that's more representative of your style. They’re silver-plated, square-shaped, and come in a slick black box. We're sure they'll go over great, even if everyone's cuffs say JB on them.
That’s it for our suggestions, Justin, hope they help. And if you need advice on how to write an epic wedding speech or the do’s and don’ts of groom and groomsmen style, check out our other Grooms Ideas & Advice:
