How Much Should You Spend on Gifts For Your Groomsmen?

Your wedding party has been with you since the beginning, so giving each member of your group a thoughtful gift as a token of appreciation and a sweet memento of your wedding is always the right move.

Consider two main things when budgeting for wedding party gifts: how much your budget will allow, and how much your wedding party is spending to be a part of your special day. The first question is obviously the most important—spend what you can, remembering that it's really the thought that counts. But do ask yourself what you've been asking financially of your wedding party. Depending on your wedding, they could already be paying for a plane ticket, hotel room, suit and shoes—not to mention the engagement party, bachelor party, your wedding and shower gifts, and more. You're certainly not expected to cover what they've spent, but you should be spending enough to say, "I appreciate the time, effort and money you've put into our wedding." Somewhere between $50 and $100 should be enough for a great gift! The best man typically receive a bit more of a lavish gift than the others, as it's typically their job to act as the go-to person for pre-wedding events and more. Consider spending a little extra on them for the extra mile they’ve gone for you.  

Deciding what gifts to give your groomsmen is never easy, and will require some thought. First of all, you might want to find something personal for each person. This does not need to be a one size fits all scenario. You want your groomsmen to know that you took the time to find a gift specifically for them and should consider whether the item will be of value to your groomsmen after the ceremony. Grooms also are known for giving gifts of something they can have for the ceremony such as a pocket knife, watches or sneakers. A personalized gift, especially if the wedding is at an out of town destination is always a hit. Other grooms like to give flasks, personalized beer steins and glasses for their friends to use and enjoy during and after the wedding.

Of course, the gifts do not need to be wedding specific. Anything is suitable, if it is useful, creative and chosen with care. When deciding, ask yourself a simple question: “Is this something I would want?”. Let that question be your guide when choosing appropriate gifts for your groomsmen.
