What to Include in Groomsmen Gift Boxes

FILED IN: Bridal Party & Groomsmen Gifts, Education

Posted By: Jamie Kutchman


Many of our clients who hire us to create custom wedding welcome gifts also ask us to create custom bridesmaids gifts and even bachelorette weekend gifts. But the girls aren't the only ones having fun with gifting! We're also seeing a huge increase in the number of requests for custom groomsmen gifts. Whether you choose to outsource the groomsmen gifts or take a trip to DIY-ville, I can't wait to share some our tips for curating classic groomsmen gifts!

Reusable Packaging

We love using pine boxes for groomsmen gifts. They're masculine and make a great storage solution for car keys, wallets, credit cards, and even cell phones long after the wedding weekend is over.


Getting Ready

Some of our favorite wedding photos are those of the groom and his groomsmen getting ready on wedding day. A small bottle of bourbon and accompanying flask make great keepsakes as well as something to enjoy and calm the nerves while getting dressed. (Bonus: this is good for the groom too!)

Wedding Attire

Including an item for groomsmen to wear on wedding day is practical and fun. We love patterned socks because who doesn't love a fun pair, right? You can vary the patterns along the same color palette or keep the socks the same throughout all of the gifts.



Groomsmen need snacks.We love Sugarfina pale ale pints because while they're in the shape of beer pints, they have the delicious taste of citrus. Some other options to consider are trail mix, gourmet chocolates, granola or peanuts.

While we already mentioned the pine box acting as a keepsake item, we love the thought of adding just one more. We love the idea of the "mandle"...a manly candle, this one pictured by Brooklyn Candle Co. In this post you see tobacco scented candles with matchboxes for an added touch. But other traditionally masculine scents we've seen are pine, oak, and even firewood.


Finishing Touches

While we're often known for our feminine finishes on our curated gift boxes, we believe that the finishing touches should always mirror the purpose of the gift. So, in this case, we've used kraft gift tags (Poppy & Scooter) with "you're the man" text along with kraft basket fill and warm grey ribbon. You also might consider personalizing the gift tags with each guy's name for that added touch!
