What is the best groomsmen gift I ever got?

If you’re wondering what the best groomsmen gift received is, here’s a little Q + A with Andrew. I asked him what the best groomsmen gift he ever received was and he said it is a tie between this awesome bottle opener and a unique stein. He says the best gifts are always groomsmen gifts that are useful, so he can actually enjoy or put them to good use.

When you want to give the best gift you can, make it something he genuinely likes — and don’t be afraid to get creative.

Do you have to give groomsmen the same gifts?

No, not necessarily. When you’re considering groomsmen gift ideas, you can either pick out something unique per person or choose gifts in a large quantity. If everyone likes the same thing, great! But if someone isn’t so fond of, for instance, drinking and wants non-alcoholic groomsmen gifts, think of an alterative.

The gifts you give do not have to be the same but they should be equal in price. Don’t give a cool tankard to one person and a tiny keychain to another.

How much to spend on groomsmen gifts?

The average cost of a good groomsman gift is anywhere from $50 to $150, although some spend upwards to around $300. Most couples spend around $100 for groomsmen gifts.

Although it is important to factor in price when budging for groomsmen gift ideas, it’s not the number-one factor. Try to give the best groomsmen gifts that are useful so they’ll enjoy them.
