Groomsmen's Gifts {For the Boys}

We recently discovered that we have quite a few grooms who follow our blog.  We're thrilled that these modern men are involved in the wedding planning but we feel bad that we haven't had much focus on them to date. Which is why weren't starting a "For the Boys" feature to showcase things of particular interest to grooms.

To kick things off, we're doing a round-up of cool groomsmen's gifts, beyond the standard money clips and monogrammed flasks.

First up: not to be cliche or anything, but a lot of men (and women!) like beer. So why not toast the important guys in your life with a membership to a microbrew of the month club! There are a ton of options out there-- this one includes free shipping and starts at $34.95 for one month.
Cufflinks as groomsmen gifts are about as omnipresent as money clips and flasks, but these two sets are just so cool. The first is pure steampunk chic-- real ruby jewels with a sleek design. And the second pair are made of wood salvaged from famous ball parks, like Shea Stadium and Wrigley Field.

And what gadget-loving guy wouldn't covet this ultra sleek iPhone case from the MoMA Store?
Another option: hosting a boys-night out for your favorite boys. Paintball sessions and tickets to ball games are always big hits. Or stay in to play cards, and end the night by giving your groomsmen a nice poker set. This one's from Restoration Hardware.


Do you run with a foodie crew? Try a fancy barbecue set with rubs and spices, or some top-shelf liquor. If your groomsmen are music lovers, they'll adore a deluxe turntable from Crosely Radio. So old school! So hip! Such a good gift.


Now men, it's your turn: what's the best groomsmen gift you've ever seen? And thanks for reading Bridal Bubbly!
