Wow Your Groomsmen This Spring with Help from The Man Registry

They’ve gone to tux fittings with you. They’ve attended your showers (and brought gifts). They’re quite possibly traveling in from long distances to attend your big day. The least you can do is get them great groomsmen gifts, right? If you’ve got a spring wedding coming up, it’s probably not a bad idea to start thinking about these thank you gifts for the wedding party. For those of you who are lost on where to get started, here are a few helpful tips.

As with any gift, it’s really more about the thought than the actual present. However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to wow your best man, groomsmen and ushers. For starters, there’s no golden rule that says you must get the same gift for each guy. In fact, I recommend that you don’t. Each man in your entourage is sure to have different interests. So think about each person individually when selecting gifts. From sports gear to BBQ supplies to office accessories, there’s no shortage of ideas to match a man’s personality and lifestyle.

Before you make your purchases, set a budget. On average, a groom spends $37 on groomsmen and usher gifts and $54 on the best man. While you’re certainly not tied to an amount you have to spend, these are good numbers to keep in mind. Costs can add up quickly, especially if you have a large wedding party. If you’re shopping online, look for sites that offer free shipping and engraving as part of your purchase. Browsing sites like RetailMeNot are also great for finding e-commerce coupon codes. There are always deals to be had if you take the time to hunt them down.

Once you’ve made your purchases, all that’s left to do is hand them out. The rehearsal dinner is a great forum for this. It gives you a captive audience that includes your wedding party (minus the high stress atmosphere of the wedding reception). It’s always a nice gesture to introduce your wedding party members and say a few words about each person as you hand out the gifts. If you don’t have that opportunity, consider including a handwritten note for each guy in the group. Think of this as an extra way to say “thanks!”
