Groomsmen gifts can be tricky. It’s the one time in your life you’re going to buy all of your best buddies something cool that doesn’t flow out of a tap. There are a lot of factors to consider but really it just comes down to two key points:
Make it Personalized - There’s nothing cooler than receiving an unexpected gift that has been made just for you. Seeing their name or a initials on an already awesome item makes for a special moment between you and your significant brother.
Make it Lasting - If you’re going to give unique groomsmen gifts, make them something that your buddies will continue to use once the festivities have ended. Giving them a pair of socks that match your wedding theme will be cool for a couple of hours, but if you give them something they’re able to keep using on a regular basis, and it’ll be cool for years to come.
The best way to keep your guys happy is with a personal, lasting gift. Start off by shopping for your significant brother at Groovy Guy Gifts. With a huge inventory, offering something for everyone, you're sure to find exactly what you're looking for.

That said...I'm sure you are now wondering, "what ARE those groomsman gifts I should avoid?"
Custom Bobbleheads and Caricatures. Just don’t do it. Please. The concept is cool, but these things never end up looking how they’re supposed to. You don't want to run the risk of ticking off one of your buddies because his bobblehead doesn’t look like him.
T-Shirts. Buying shirts for other men is a recipe for disaster because sizes vary. Someone’s shirt will fit incorrectly and it’ll turn into an embarrassing situation.
Sports Tickets. We agree that the idea of gifting tickets to the wedding party is appealing. What you’re really doing, however, is creating a huge hassle for yourself. There’s just way too much coordination involved. Your friends have busy schedules, jobs, kids, etc. Don't assume they can just drop everything and go to a game.
Alcohol. This is a great idea in theory, but what if your groomsmen are traveling home by plane? You’ll end up paying to ship the bottles back to each guy’s house and that ain't cheap.
His Tuxedo Rental. Boring. Instead give him something awesome he can take home with him from Groovy Guy Gifts!
