Groomsmen don’t often get as much attention as bridesmaids. The most famous groomsmen in popular culture are known for loosing the groom on the rooftop of a Vegas hotel after getting everyone into a little too much fun the night before, after all. But in real life, groomsmen are the guys who the husband-to-be knows he can rely on most for more than just a good time (or a good time that leads to a bad time and a hell of a story). And for that, groomsmen deserve a thank you gift. Groomsmen, after all, invest a whole lot of time and money on making the groom’s big day (and the days leading up to it) seamless and the best it can be.

These groomsmen gifts are ones that will be used and cherished long after the actual wedding.


Journeyman Whiskey Barrel

There are plenty of great whiskeys out there that make for excellent gifts. And hey, there’s a good chance a bourbon gift for your groomsmen will go over extremely well. But for the core group of guys who enjoying a glass of whiskey neat together, there’s nothing quite like sharing a barrel. Journeyman offers two types of barrel picks: you pick the spirit and they age it for six months to five or more years, or you pick from a range of barrels and it’s all bottled and sent out within 30 days. Either way, it doesn’t get much more personalized than this. — Nickolaus Hines

Prices vary

Personalized Whiskey Decanter

Show the guys you care with a personalized whiskey decanter. The set comes with two personalized whiskey glasses as well, so the next time you stop by there’s always a glass to share, regardless of what he fills that decanter with (and hopefully it becomes a full-on infinity barrel for a spirit that’s as custom to the man as this engraved decanter is). You have the choice of engraving two lines with up to 15 characters each or going with three initials, or go with some design work and put one line of up to 15 characters inside a circle, stamped, filigree, or antlers design. — Nickolaus Hines


Custom Engraved Hudson 4.5" Wood Inlay Knife

People who are into pocket knives often have the perfect blade they keep with them everywhere they go. They likely also spent a decent amount of time finding that perfect knife. But they don’t have one like this–frankly, because the customization means the exact knife is one of a kind. Even the groomsmen who don’t think they’re pocket knife guys will appreciate this one. Hey, it might even make them understand the true value that a pocket knife has when it comes to everyday carry. — Nickolaus Hines


Engraved Cigar Lighters

Every groomsman will need something to light that celebratory cigar with. Rather than pass around the same old torch lighter, no matter how good that torch lighter may be, gift a custom one with their initials. This will also avoid any “accidentally pocketed” lighter situations. You can’t hide the ownership of what’s been monogrammed, after all. — Nickolaus Hines


Soundcore Anker Life Q20 Hybrid Active Noise Cancelling Headphones

The guys will love these cans. Seriously. For 50 bucks, the Q20s provide rich sound and a bit of peace with up to 90 percent reduction in ambient noise via ANC microphones and digital active noise cancellation. It also provides BassUp technology that actively analyzes frequencies to maximize bass output. With active noise cancellation on, the Q20s provide 40 hours of playtime, or 60 hours without. A mere five minutes of charging will deliver four hours of listening pleasure, plus they fold down for easy transport. — Amos Kwon


The Henry WESN Pocket Knife

The Henry is a modern pocket knife with vintage Swedish roots. Its simple design is handsome and timeless, but its strong and light titanium scales are cutting edge. The non-locking slip-joint blade is great for everyday tasks, and its 2.35″ length is long enough to get stuff done but not so long that it can’t be carried every day. Turn your wedding party into everyday carry blade lovers. — Amos Kwon


G-Shock GA-2100 SERIES

For less than a hundred bucks, you can gift your guys the urban-camo version of the famed CasiOak analog-digital watch that took the world by storm last year. It’s stylish, rugged, and multifunctional with world time, five alarms, stopwatch, countdown timer, LED lighting, auto calendar, 200 meters of water resistance, and that famous shock resistance toughness. — Amos Kwon


Arc'teryx Mantis 16 Backpack

A good daypack should make carrying gear convenient rather without weighing you down. The sleek but spacious Mantis 16 is ready for fast moves on or off the trail thanks to its 100 percent recycled poly construction, padded frame, and easy 16-liter capacity. There’s a main compartment, zipped security pocket, side pockets, padded adjustable straps, and even a removable waist strap. It’s the go-to daypack that won’t make its wearer look like a sherpa, and if perfect for those more outdoorsy bachelor parties. — Amos Kwon


Foldies Polarized Folding Sunglasses

A good pair of shades that provide folding portability, glare-free polarized and scratch-resistant lenses, as well as timeless Wayfarer-like style is a desirable gift that can also be worn on the big day for matching sunnies to go with your matching suits. Foldies come in seven colorways that can be selected based on each groomsman’s personality, or you can just have them all fall in line with one. Regardless, they’ll be thrilled to have full UV protection, polarization, and one-handed deployment. They also come with a leather case, microfiber cleaning cloth, and a two-year warranty. — Amos Kwon


VAER S5 Calendar Field Watch

A good field watch can be worn about 99 percent of the time (the big day falling into that one percent). Vaer’s S5 is one of those watches everyone loves because of its classic ethos and WWII-inspired design. The white hands, markers, and numerals against the flat black dial are easy to read, and the sapphire glass means scratch-free viewing. It even has a locking crown and a 100-meter depth rating, so it’s water-friendly. The 40mm stainless steel case also looks great on any wrist. Gift these out before that bachelor party fishing trip and you’ll all be on the same page. — Amos Kwon


Helinox Chair Zero

Those gas-station folding camp chairs that offer up that sinking feeling are easily less than desirable when it comes to long outdoor seat time. Your groomsmen will appreciate the supremely comfortable and immensely portable Chair XL. Its aircraft-grade aluminum frame and large seating area pack down to a mere 5 inches long and less than four-pounds altogether, so it transports like no other folding chair on the market. Toss it in a backpack or a tote bag, and deploy it just about anywhere. — Amos Kwon


Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story

The gift of reading, music, and history come together in this book by U2’s famous frontman, Bono (aka, Paul Hewson). It’s 576 pages of Bono and the band’s history, his life lessons, and stories behind the music will provide immensely deep and entertaining reading (or listening, as the audiobook is read by Bono himself). It’s a rich book that will make readers return to U2s music or experience it for the first time. For other book options, you can’t go wrong with one of the essential books every guy should read. — Amos Kwon
