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’s hard to find one gift that fits all your guy’s style and interests.
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.
Whether you’re trying to find affordable gifts for a big group or splurging for a few of your close crew, you can find the perfect groomsman gift at Macy’s. We’ve gathered our favorite picks from Macy’s for every budget.
