Gift Ideas for your Best Man
The relationship between the groom and his best man is undoubtedly a close one. Though it may not be customary for the groom to give the best man a gift, you know that you want to give him something, so he'll never forget that you could not have pulled off the wedding without him. And choosing the perfect gift for your best friend, though it may seem very easy, actually turns out to be quite difficult. This is because you know the person so well that you simply cannot decide what will be the perfect gift for him. Nonetheless, given below are a couple of some neutral ideas of gifts for men which you, as a groom, can give your best man.
A gift basket is a fabulous option for a gift for the best man. In the gift basket, fill up a lot of personalized gifts like stationery, a grooming set, a beer mug, his favorite music CDs and movie DVDs, a cigar case, a pocket-watch, cuff links, shot glasses, a golf set, etc. The simplest way to personalize these gifts is to have the initials, or the name of your best man engraved on them.
Life after marriage changes, that is a fact. There will be lesser poker nights with the boys, and responsibilities of the wife and family will definitely make it difficult to keep up with everything that's happening in your friend's life. But that does not mean you should forget all the good times you had together. Gather all the photos of the two of you or your entire gang of friends, and make a cool photo gift out of it. A collage, a scrapbook with funny quips, or a full-fledged album. Take your pick!
Every best man wears a tuxedo for the wedding. And every best man, and even the groom for that matter, knows just how expensive the tuxedo can be. And there are so many other things that the best man takes care of during the wedding, that more often than not, he rents a tuxedo from a store. It is one of the best options, if he won't really be wearing it often. But you can be the generous groom and when you go out with your best man to get him fitted for the rented tux, surprise him by buying a brand new one with a stylish necktie for him instead! Trust me, he won't be able to refuse!
These were just a few of the gifts that you can think of giving your best man. Do let us know your ideas on the same! Until then, try one of these out, and make your best man happy!
