Groomsmen Gifts Under $30
By Editorial Staff
It is traditional for the bride and groom to give their attendants a gift that says, “Thanks for being part of my big day.”
Groomsmen gifts don’t need to put your wedding budget in the red with our shopping advice. Consider these stylish presents that don’t look like you cut corners on your best buds.
1. Luggage with his John Hancock
Before you continue reading about the Groomsmen Gifts Under $30 there is a special announcement we would like to share with you. Catalogs.com has negotiated special medicare rates for our vibrant community of seniors. If you are over the age of 60, you can head over to our Seniors Health Section which is full of information about medicare. All you need is your zip code and a few minutes of your time to potentially save 100s of dollars on your medicare bills.
A practical gift becomes more personal when it is monogrammed, and couple that with something your groomsmen will really use, you’ve got a winner. Travel accessories and easy, useful pieces of personalized luggage like this overnighter with masculine tailoring, is a winner for weekend getaways, business overnights, and, yes, traveling to your wedding.
2. Cufflinks with a sense of humor
Choosing something for your groomsmen is easy if it really fits the occasion, and you play off an inside joke or ongoing theme of your times together. If these are the guys who helped you keep it together to get you to this momentous day, why not reward them with clever techy cufflinks like the “panic button” option?
3. Techy take on the traditional
Look for the techy-est spin on traditional gift ideas. Instead of an electric razor, how about a lightweight, rechargeable USB travel razor or another cool gadget? You get the idea.
4. Leverage your wedding theme
Are these guys part of your golf club reception? Are they joining you on the beach? Are they flying in from around the country? Make your token of appreciation match the theme and design of your wedding. For example, a smart-looking airplane bottle opener for guys who traveled to stand up for you. With some creative shopping, you can find plenty of unique gifts that work for your groomsmen.
5. Here’s to the guys!
Okay, we’ll work with you here. A huge majority of groomsmen gifts revolve around the imbibing of beverages and stoking of cigars: beer steins, humidors, flasks and the ilk. There is nothing wrong with going this route, but we would suggest the most unique gift here you can find, like stainless steel flasks with a funnel – in a shape that is anything but ordinary.
6. Jewelry with cultural significance
Many weddings have cultural or religious significance. If yours does, consider a symbolic piece of guy’s jewelry or an accessory that matches your wedding. Going a wee bit Irish? A fancy Celtic keychain is right on the money.
7. Personalized sports gear and decor
Which sport do your guys share a passion for? Personalized sports gifts are a great idea, like this Golf Magazine cover with their images on it. Other ideas are a sign for their Man Caves, “Property of” t-shirts and stainless refs’ whistles.
8. Goods for the gamers
If dice, poker or darts are your groomsmen’s sport of choice, you can go wrong with personalized indoor sports accessories, like a leather dice cup and dice. A set of top-choice darts or a desktop putting game work for these guys, too.
9. Manly journals for travel notes
A leather bound journal to document travel, jot down quick notes and record daily thoughts will be appreciated. They can keep a good looking journal on their desktop, in their briefcase or in the car. This will pick up where electronic note-taking doesn’t work.
10. Clever tech accessories
Top-notch earbuds, iPhone stands, cool MP3 player stands and auxiliary speakers are great gifts, and they are almost always under the $30 threshold. Every guy will really use these tech accessories, and if they are unusual, too, they will earn a top spot on the desk or nightstand.
