If you’re not sure what to get them, here are four tips for choosing thank-you gifts your buddies will love.

4 Pro-Tips for Picking Gifts Your Groomsmen Will LoveSet a budget
There are a lot of things you need for the wedding and all these things need money. The best way to stay on top of your wedding finances is to keep track of the tiniest details. Setting a firm budget for all yourgroomsmen gifts is one detail you shouldn’t miss.

Grooms spend an average of $209 on groomsmen gifts but you can also base your budget on your total wedding budget. Another nice and easy guideline is to base it on how much your groomsmen will spend for your wedding (i.e. in suit rentals, accommodations, the bachelor party, etc.).

Opt for practical

Before you buy expensive novelty items branded specifically as wedding party favors, make sure you are buying something worth it. 

If you don’t want your gifts to simply collect dust in your friend’s closet, make sure you buy something practical. Something they can use in the office like pens or something they can wear on a daily basis like ball caps are practical and cheap solutions.

Another practical gift is an item that they can use during and after the wedding. Colorful monogrammed socks, for instance, can add pizzazz to your wedding attires and can be used by your groomsmen even after the wedding. Travel bags are great wedding party favors for beach or destination weddings.

Add a personal touch

A great way to save money on gifts and still add a personal touch is to buy items in bulk and have your groomsmen gifts personalized. However, if you have the budget tospare, you can always choose to hand pick items for each of your groomsmen. Putting in the extra effort is a great way to show your buddies how much their friendship means to you. 

At the end of the day, use your best judgment and select gifts that are practical and meaningful for each groomsman.
