Groomsmen Gifts- Tips Before You Buy

Many grooms realize very late in the wedding planning process that they need to purchase groomsmen gifts.
Groomsmen gifts are thank you gifts to the other guys wearing tuxedos (best man, each groomsman, ushers) that are participating in your wedding.
These guys are typically your best friends and/or relatives and it is common courtesy for the groom to give a personalized gift to each guy as a thank you for their efforts and friendship.
Here are a few things to consider before you buy your groomsmen gifts: 1.
What is your gift budget? Can you spend $20 per guy? $30? $50? Pick a number and only look at gifts at that price.
If you decide on $30 per guy, it is a waste of time to look at $50 gifts.
You'll probably see something really cool in the $50 price range and then blow your budget.
If you are patient, you'll definitely be able to nail something down right at the price you were thinking about in the first place.
2.
Will you guys use their gifts? Are your guys fancy? Are they plain? Are they manly men that like to get dirty? Think about the kind of friends you have.
Some guys might love those engraved cufflinks you got them whereas others might have preferred a pocket knife.
You want to feel like the gift you give is going to see some use.
3.
Will you personalize the gifts? Wedding gifts to groomsmen and bridesmaids are usually personalized or customized in some way.
The person's name or initials are usually engraved, embroidered or marked on the gift.
For instance, if you're going for flasks for the groomsmen, you'll want to have these flasks engraved with names or initials.
Engraving makes gifts even more special.
Everyone loves to see their own name on something.
Indulge them with personalized gifts and you'll create instant keepsakes that they will cherish for years.
4.
Has the online store been around? Many internet sites can be run out of someone's home.
You'll want to shop at a site that shows a picture of their facility.
It's nice to know that you're dealing with professionals and not with part time mom and pop stores.
5.
Is there a toll free number and physical address shown on the website? A website should definitely have a toll free number.
This is good customer service.
Websites that hide their phone number and do not list a physical address should be avoided.
What do you do if you need to contact them? You'll be frustrated immediately once you realize they don't post a phone number.
Weddings are a special time in the lives of the bride and groom.
Your wedding attendants will do everything they can for you to ensure that you have a great day.
Be sure to thank them.
