A wedding, like every noteworthy occasion in life, has time-honored etiquette that surrounds it. That includes giving your groomsmen gifts to thank them. After all, these guys have been there for you, helping you make it to the altar and will be standing by your side on your wedding day.
Many men go with the matching groomsmen gift strategy – giving the same item to all men in the wedding party. It’s a convenient solution and shows that you’re not playing favorites, but it can also have a hint of last-minute desperation.
Instead, we suggest that you man up and spend a little more time selecting individual gifts that reflect each of your groomsmen’s personalities. It’s a more meaningful approach to showing your bros that you appreciate everything they’ve done.
