Still can’t find what you’re looking for? Check out some of our other gift guides here.

So you found the perfect companion, popped the question, got through your engagement and the only thing left to do is tie the knot... Congratulations, that means you're getting married! Better still, you're going to do it surrounded by all of your closest friends and family, some of whom will literally be right by your side at the altar, hopefully showing you the same kind of support they have for as long as you've known them. Of course, you want to say thanks to them for all they've done, but where do you even start?

There's no shortage of possible groomsmen gifts out there — some that are classic (potentially to the point of cliché) and others that might be a bit more unusual (and therefore more difficult to figure out). Maybe you already know what you want to get your groomsmen and you're just trying to whittle it down to the right options or maybe you have no idea and are grasping at straws. One way or another, you're certainly going to find something worth their while (and your hard-earned money) right here on our guide to the best groomsmen gifts. Knock this out of the park and then you can start worrying about what comes next: your first anniversary.

Deanston Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Don't let the low, low price of this scotch whisky fool you — it just took top honors at this year's International Wine & Spirits Competition with a maximum score of 99. That makes this a unicorn bottle of epic proportions, especially when you consider the price.

Jacob Bromwell Explorer Flask
Jacob Bromwell

Flasks are as classic a groomsmen gift as they come. But this one is extra special, as it comes from a lauded brand and it's built from a unique material: pewter. If that's not enough, it's also completely handmade and comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Yeti Hopper Flip 12 Soft Cooler

If you and your buddies like to toss a few beers back from time to time, a solid cooler — like this one from Yeti — makes a great groomsmen gift. A bit more portable and packable than hard-sided options, this one still has top-notch insulation and plenty of room for a sixer and some ice.

Seiko Prospex SNJ025 'Arnie' Watch

Watches are another go-to gift for your wedding-bound buds, but picking the right one is a different story entirely. When it comes to Seiko, the sought-after Japanese timepiece brand, this model — as worn by Arnold Schwarzenegger in both Commando and Predator — is an easy win.

The James Brand Wayland Knife
The James Brand

Especially if your groomsmen are into the idea of EDC, a pocket knife can make a thoughtful and useful gift. That goes double if you choose The James Brand's Wayland with its old-meets-new styling and top-notch materials (like genuine rosewood and S35VN steel).

Bellroy Apex Slim Sleeve Wallet

Everyone needs a way to carry their money, but not all wallets can stand up to the same kinds of scrutiny as Bellroy's Apex lineup. This modern bifold is slim enough for front-pocket carry, but still boasts outstanding materials, incorporates unique technology and can still hold 6-8 cards.

Persol 714SM Steve McQueen Sunglasses

Steve McQueen was known as The King of Cool. And while your groomsmen are probably not as cool as the late actor, they can have a fraction of that coolness by donning these McQueen-edition folding Persol sunglasses, which are as timeless as they are convenient and portable.
