Selecting the perfect groomsman’s gift is not a task to be taken lightly. Your gift represents not only a hearty “thank you for standing by me through the thick of it” but is also a reflection of your bond with your closest compatriots. I’ve been in a few weddings and can’t help but feel that groomsman’s gifts I’ve been given have been relegated to something you offer solely for the sake of tradition. Well, that simply won’t do. When I got married I gave my guys Leathermen Knives. I wanted to choose something unique and I figured if I was going to spend the money on gifts, I wanted them to be useful. And besides, what guy doesn’t like knives? Predictably, their significant others were less than thrilled.
So that got me thinking about a request from one of our readers, Joel D, who is looking for ideas for his own wedding. Well Joel, I think this topic is best served by asking the GP community to weigh in. So I ask you loyal Gear Patrol readers, what do you think is the best groomsmen gift? Let’s try and keep it around $75 or less per gift (per person); times are tough, after all. Include links to products if you have them.
