Looking for some fun mens gifts for the groom?

As a best man, you have a great many responsibilities. One of these responsibilities is planning a gift that will be given on behalf of the groomsmen to the groom. Luckily, as a best man or a groomsman, youre likely to have a good understanding of the groom for whom youre buying the gift. You probably know his sense of humour, his likes, dislikes, and expectations for the future.

So as you think about the right mens gifts to give, remember that youre helping him say goodbye to one era and help him begin the next. You may be wondering, how can you send him on his way to marital bliss with one last laugh or hurrah? Well we have a few suggestions.

Want to start his marital life with a little excitement?

If the groom is an adrenaline junky or simply up for a good adventure, consider sending him skydiving, surfing, or for a helicopter ride. If you want to send the groomsmen and the groom on this adventure together, celebrating one last hurrah together, this can serve as both your gift and the bachelor party.

What if, instead, you want to give him a little panache and class?

The groom is closing one chapter of his book and opening another. So why not give him a gift that will keep on giving? Some classy mens gifts include a cocktail making kit, a shoe shine kit, and a nice watch.

His new wife might appreciate a more polished version of the man she loves, so dont be shy about trying to clean him up a bit for his wedding! This is also a good time to have a few friendly jokes at his expense. For example, if hes always running late, buy him a watch and a clock or two.

Still looking for little bit more fun?

Gifts from the groomsmen are often given during the bachelor party, so if you want to get a bit saucier and have a bit of fun, this is the time to do it! Get creative and find mens gifts that help capture the friendship shared by the men in the wedding party. Consider giving him a keepsake so he can remember that night for years to come.

If you dont know all the men in the wedding party very well, you might want to tone down gifts that may offend. Or simply ask the groom if there are types of mens gifts that should be avoided.

A final tip:

When buying mens gifts for a groom, keep in mind that whatever gift you give him will most likely end up in his marital home. So be considerate and if youre buying him gifts that are meant to be saved, keep the wife-to-be in mind as you shop.
