23 Best Groomsmen Gifts for 2023 (And why they kill every time!)

Groomsmen gifts are a tricky beast. Let’s face it, it’s probably the one time in your life you’re going to buy all of your buddies something cool that doesn’t flow out of a tap. Here are the two key ingredients for getting the best groomsmen gifts for your wedding party:

  1. Make it Personalized - There’s nothing cooler than receiving an unexpected gift that’s made just for you. Seeing their name or a personal message on an already awesome item makes for a special moment between you and your significant brother.
  2. Make it Enduring - If you’re going to give unique groomsmen gifts, make them something that your buddies can continue to use once the festivities have subsided.

Whatever your groomsmen are into, we have you covered. Here’s 23 of the best groomsmen gifts for 2023 and beyond:



- Whiskey Decanter Set


What’s awesome about it? - Let’s face it, it’s probably the classiest thing your groomsmen are ever going to own. It’s a home-bar staple, and chances are they don’t already have one. Engrave their name and birth year on it, and with each one coming in your choice of a super-swanky gift box or a wooden crate, it’s a home run every single time. 

Why will they love it? - Not only does it give them an absolutely stunning piece of custom glassware, but it also gives them an amazing excuse to go shopping for a killer bottle of scotch.It's a win-win!

- Bartender Bottle Opener

What’s awesome about it? - First, it’s a great price-point for those on a tighter budget or with a gigantic wedding party. And also, if your dudes are more brew boys than whiskey sippers, it’s a great gift to have in abundance lying around the groom’s room. Shaped out of beech wood and stainless steel, it’s weighty and legitimately top quality.

Why will they love it? - Every dude needs a go-to bottle opener, and this is as good as it gets. Classy enough to be displayed on a home bar, and durable enough to make it through even the sloppiest of summer BBQs.

What’s awesome about it? - As wallets go, this slim cardholder is the safest bet for a wedding party. And it also happens to come at a really affordable price. Everyone has their wallet preferences, but even if you’re a classic bifold guy, there’s always a need to have a cardholder to fall back on. Throw on a pair of skinny jeans and tell me I’m wrong!

Why will they love it? - It’s a timeless wallet, with their name engraved into the leather. Looks and feels amazing, and it’s guaranteed to get a ton of use. What’s not to love?

- Vintage Cuban Box

What’s awesome about it?First off, they definitely don’t have one of these! Not only are they a beautiful standalone piece, but they’re also highly functional as far as groomsmen gift ideas go.

Why will they love it? - It’s something that they’ll keep forever, whether they keep it stocked with cubans, fill it with keepsakes, or use it to hide their miniature figurine paint from people who actually have lives.

- Beer Glass Set

What’s awesome about it? - Bit of a silly question for this one. It’s a custom set of beer glasses - with your name laser-engraved on there for eternity.

- Leather Catchall Tray

What’s awesome about it? - This is the perfect gift for a guy who has everything. It’s best defined as a thing that holds all your stuff. Great for an entryway table to hold keys, shades and coins, or for a work-from-home desk to hold chargers, fidget spinners and guitar picks (I’m not very productive).

Why will they love it? - Pretty safe bet that none of your guys already has one of these, and all of them need one! And it’s another gift they’ll literally use every day and will be reminded on the regular how much better a groom you are than freakin Kyle and his goofy tin flasks and socks.
