It may be hard to believe right now, but wedding season, and all the planning that goes with it, will be back before you know it. As wedding planners, we know there are lots of details to be taken into consideration all the way up to the big day. While location venues, catering, florists, DJs, and the like are going to take up most of the planning energy, don’t forget about the details, such as groomsmen gift ideas.
Thankfully there are several shops that make this easy. They offer a unique take on what could be a traditional, “stuffy” gift. Let’s take a look at a few of these groomsmen gift ideas.
Groovy Groomsmen features a number of manly items. But what makes these items stands out is personalization. You can get items like flasks, knifes, multi-tools and the like, and every item will have the groomsmen’s name on it! They can also add the wedding info, too. (For brides, check out their “sister” company Bridesmaid Gifts Boutique, where the cosmetic bag above came from.)
Many groomsmen will probably need to comb their hair (and maybe their beard) at some point. What about a personalized comb in a classy leather sheath? Chicago Comb Company has got your back! They have both stainless steel and titanium combs that come protected in Horween leather.
Finally we have offerings from Bespoke Post. While they specialize in a monthly “box service”, where unique and manly gifts are sent to one’s door, you can also just order specific “boxes”, filled with a theme. We particularly like the “Frontier” box, which includes our favorite pocket knife, the Opinel, plus a Kaweco fountain pen and a hard-bound journal!
We hope this post gives you some good groomsmen gift ideas.
"What kind of gift do I get for my groomsmen?" or "Where should I go to look for unique gifts?" These are common questions you might hear when working as a wedding planner. It can be difficult to find a gift that is not only unique, but useful, for the special friends and family that you have chosen to stand up with you on your big day. If you would like to find something other than the normal monogrammed flask or lighter then you have to check out the Ace Hotel Shop and the Orox Leather Company.
If you want gifts that are very Portland and delightfully different, then look no further than the Ace Hotel Shop. There is a great selection of Portland themed items, ranging from wool pillows to stylish hats. A duffle bag would not only be a useful present, but could also be used to keep personal items organized on the wedding day. You could get each groomsman a different colored hat and wear them for pictures. The possibilities here are endless!
Less than 1/2 mile from the Ace Hotel is the Orox Leather Company. Orox Leather Company has an amazing selection of beautiful leather goods. A great token of gratitude for the groomsmen could be a leather belt. Then, not only do they have something useful to add to their everyday wardrobe, but they could also wear them to the wedding. Another option could be to get everyone a dopp kit. Again, not only a useful gift, but a unique one as well.
