It can be difficult buying all the gifts you need for an upcoming wedding, especially when it comes to the groomsmen. There are a lot of people that put off getting groomsmen gifts until the last possible minute, and sometimes it can be easy to tell you weren’t really putting much thought into the gift. Here are four really great gifts you can get a groomsmen at the last-minute, and they all are relatively inexpensive and easy to purchase.
Nice Bottle of Wine
Getting a nice bottle of wine and giving it to a groomsmen makes a great last-minute gift. A lot of people enjoy wine, even occasionally, and it makes a great custom gift without too much thought or hassle. You probably already know what kind of wine the groomsmen drink, especially if they are close friends or relatives, so half of your work is already done. If you are not sure, you can send out a small survey and ask the groomsmen what they like, and just play it off like it is for the wedding. You can buy wine pretty much anywhere, including at liquor stores and grocery stores, and the nice bottles will cost about $40 or a little more. I think this is a great gift because men like to drink, but beer isn’t as fancy as wine, and wine is something they can all drink with their significant other on a special occasion.
If you have groomsmen, then chances are you have a lot of men that are into sports, so a sports shirt could be a great last-minute groomsmen gift. Whether they are a fan of the National Football League, National Hockey League, National Basketball Association, or Major League Baseball, there is always a shirt you can buy to please them. One thing I like about this gift is that you can customize the shirt to a specific team, sport, and even player, so everyone can have a different gift, but it won’t take much time. You can buy sports apparel and shirts at most local retail stores or your local sports shop, and a shirt will cost less than $50 each.
Flasks have become something more than just an object to drink out of, it has become a very special gift that recognizes an event or occasion. You can get flasks in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and even materials, which makes it very customizable for each groomsmen. One thing I really like about flasks is that you can set them in your kitchen to remember a special event, and it don’t have to be something you drink out of. In a way, flasks have become a male version of a scrapbook or picture, because you can engrave it to say something special to recognize that day or a specific memory. You can purchase a nice flask at your local liquor store, retail store, and even through online retail stores. I think for a last-minute gift, a flask is great because whether it gets used or not, it still is a keepsake for each groomsmen, and it does show thought.
Gift Cards and Certificates
You might think that gift cards and gift certificates are not very unique or cool to give a groomsmen, but it really is, especially for a last-minute gift. You can get gift cards and certificates for just about anywhere these days, so you can pick one from a place you know each guy will like. You can get them for bars, sporting venues, comedy clubs, retail stores, restaurants, massage parlors, golf courses, sporting goods stores, and so many more different venues. You can also get a gift certificate to an online retail store or magazine, so the ability to customize for each person is limitless. It is also a great gift because that way you can let your groomsmen pick out what they want, instead of getting a gift that will get tossed out or put into the closet never to be seen again.
