The groomsmen gift is something that can be easily overlooked during the craziness that comes with wedding planning. But, with a little bit of thought any groom can give something that all of his groomsmen will appreciate and use well beyond the weekend that stand with him on his big day. There are all kinds of unique gift options that are available, so the one way to make sure that you get the right ones to match your groomsmen is to give them a level of personal touch that will really make the guys appreciate them.
For instance, if you and your groomsmen are sports fanatics, then it would make sense to give them some gifts that satisfy their inner obsession. If they’re a fan of a specific team, you can buy them something that’s got the team logo on it. If they’re more into a specific sport, then you can go that route, too. It’s all up to what the groomsmen want and what they’re into.
If you’re looking for some sports-related gift inspiration, here are five ideas that might be something you might want to look into:
Gifts For the Golf Fan Groomsman
There are all kinds of gifts that you can get for your groomsmen golf enthusiasts, so you shouldn’t have a problem finding something that works. Also, many of the gifts can be personalized so each one that you give to your groomsmen will be created specifically for them. Usually this will take a little bit longer and will most likely cost you a little bit more money, but in the end it will give your gift more of an impact so it’s well worth it.
Here are a few ideas for the golfers in your wedding lineup:
- Personalized golf balls that can include their name and the date/location of your wedding
- Monogrammed golf ball markers (these are for the serious golfer, but look really cool)
- Custom made golf towels
- A golf-specific flask (drinking and golf go together like peanut butter and jelly)
Team Specific Beer Mugs
Maybe your groomsmen are more into tailgating or armchair quarterbacking than golfing? If this is the case, then you can never going wrong with getting them a set of beer mugs with their favorite sports team logo proudly displayed on each one. Whether it’s NHL, NFL, NBA or MLB these mugs will be sure to get used any time there’s a game on and will be yet another way for them to each show the world just how much of a fan they really are.
Group Tickets To A Ballgame
There’s no doubt that we all love to receive cool gifts, but honestly as we all get older and somehow being to drift apart from some of our closest friends that we have, sometimes the best gift is to simply hang out with each other. This is why another great sports idea for getting your groomsmen would be to get them all tickets to your favorite local team you love to cheer on (even when they’re not good). This will not only be a meaningful gift that each of them know you put some thought into (yes, men like thoughtfulness, too), but it will be a way for you to spend some time with some of your closest friends and family that you have in your life. Sounds like a good combo to me.
Custom and Personalized Sports Bobbleheads
If there’s one thing that practically every sports fan loves, it’s bobbleheads…especially when their head is the one bobbling (is that even a word?). These days there are some pretty easy ways to create each of your groomsmen their own, custom and personalized bobblehead doll and even through it’s not cheap, it will be such a huge hit you won’t even care what they cost you to make. When you’re making the bobblehead you can have them customized according to each groomsman’s favorite sport, their favorite player or even their favorite team. Thanks to technology and the internet the bobblehead options are nearly limitless and are only limited to your imagination.
Custom Foam Fingers
Nothing says sports like an oversized, larger-than-life foam finger, so why not use them to give your groomsmen some love? There are several different styles of foam fingers available online and with the ability to customize what they say, you’ll never have more fun handing out a gift to your guys. You could even make them specific to certain memories that you have had with each of your groomsmen, which will make them mean even more once they stop laughing after the initial shock of getting a personalized foam finger as a present. I have no idea how or why I came up with this idea for a gift, but I’m actually kind of mad that I didn’t give them to my groomsmen when I got married. If you end up doing this, you have to let me know and please take pictures.
Hopefully these ideas will help you find a gift that your sports-crazed groomsmen will like and if all else fails, just get ’em a money clip or some cuff links. Actually, on second thought, just don’t get them anything.
