Non-Alcoholic Groomsmen Gift Etiquette
If one of your groomsmen is recovering from an alcohol addiction or is just not into drinking alcohol like the rest of the party, don’t give them a gift related to alcohol. Instead, you have a couple options. These both depend on the personality of the groomsman, so make sure you know what’s appropriate.
Option 1: If one of your groomsmen is a recovering alcoholic and is still sensitive to the idea of drinking, it’s a good idea to stay away from alcohol-related gifts entirely. That means everyone gets cufflinks, a cigar case or personalized money clip. There are hundreds of non-alcoholic groomsmen gifts available on this page that your buddies will love.
Option 2: If you know your groomsman is cool with the idea of other people drinking around him, get him something non-alcoholic related while everybody else gets a beer mug. If he’s stuck around long enough to put up with you and your buddies enjoying a couple cold ones from time to time, he’s going to be okay with getting a different gift than everybody else. If anything, the fact that you went out of your way to find him a unique gift will make him feel special.
