Okay, so you’ve planned a bachelor party that makes The Hangover look like a tea party at the local retirement home, remembered the rings, and written a kick-ass speech (that doesn’t mention anything too embarrassing).
It’s no wonder you were chosen as the best man! But before you pat yourself on the back, there may be a little detail you’ve overlooked.
In case you didn’t know, it’s kind of a thing for the best man to arrange a gift for the groom. This can be from yourself or something from all the groomsmen… it’s totally up to you.
What is important, though, is that you get your almost-betrothed bro’ a little something that shows just how much you appreciate your friendship.
But before you get your bow tie in a bunch about what to get, why not take a look at our best man gift to groom ideas!
From duffle bags and novelty socks to a poker set or memory box, there’s something for every budget, taste, and interest.
Yes, we know, you’re welcome!
Personalized Leather Cufflinks with Initials
For the man with impeccable style, you can’t go wrong with these Personalized Leather Cufflinks.
Made from stainless steel and the very finest antique full-grain cowhide leather, this pair of cufflinks includes the groom’s initials.
They are on the pricier side, but they’re a classic gift that we think is worth every cent.
Nacho Average Groom T-Shirt
Spoiler alert ahead – weddings can cost a small fortune nowadays!
If the budget’s taking strain, why not go for this Nacho Average Groom T-Shirt? It’s got humor, fits well, and will last a long time – pretty much like your bromance!
Self Care Box for the Groom
This Self Care Box is such a great idea for the groom who likes looking more chic than shabby!
It’s jam-packed with all the things the soon-to-be-newlywed needs to scrub up nicely on his big day, including American Crew 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner and body wash, Dermalogica’s Intensive Moisture Cleanser, Milk & Honey Body Butter, ALTOIDS Sugar-Free Mints, a pumice stone, handmade charcoal soap, and a Microsoft super absorbent facial towel.
There’s even a metal key that can be personalized with your very own message!
Engraved Beer Growler
What’s a groom without a growler? If your best bud doesn’t have one yet, then this is a must-have!
The Engraved Beer Growler holds up to 64 oz of beer and is personalized with the groom’s name or surname and a year (this can be his wedding year, the year you became friends, or another significant date).
It’s reusable, but will also look good on display in a man-cave. Depending on your budget, you can also include 2, 4, 6, or 8-pint glasses that are also engraved.
Cigar Holding Whiskey Glass with Classic Design
For the man who struggles to multitask, this Cigar Holding Whiskey Glass with Classic Monogram Design is an absolute winner.

Large Wood Memory Box
We love this Large Wood Memory Box and think it’s the ideal gift for the groom and his wife-to-be!
Made from walnut wood, the box has a sliding lid and can be personalized pretty much however you like.
We think it’s a nice idea to put a few mementos inside as part of the gift, or you can present it to the happy couple to fill with new memories as they start their lives together as Mr. and Mrs.

Say goodbye to tacky-looking beer bottles or cans with the Asobu Frosty Beer 2 Go Beer Can and Bottle Cooler
The vacuum insulated double-walled stainless steel design keeps your favorite beer bottle or can cool for hours, and it even comes with a built-in bottle opener.

We love that it includes your own “Established” date that adds that personal touch.

The straps have removable wooden links, which can be adjusted to fit any size wrist.
And then there’s the gift box, which can be engraved with your very own message, in a font and design of your choice!

Everyone loves a light-hearted joke gift! Give the nervous groom something to smile about with these “I Do… What She Says” Novelty Socks.

Best of all, at under $10, they’re very friendly on the pocket.
Groom’s Survival Kit Bag
What’s not to like about this handmade embroidered Groom’s Survival Kit Bag?
Fill it up with all the groom’s essentials to survive the big day, such as aftershave, a toothbrush, toothpaste, mints, hair and shaving products, a phone charger, antiperspirant (he’s gonna need it), and a miniature size bottle of his favorite liquor for some Dutch courage (he’s gonna need that too)!

We love this set of Twine Wooden Wine Box Three Year Celebration Bottle Holder with Lids and Latches, and the groom (and bride) will love it too!
Beautifully designed with a vintage-style finish, each box includes a packing straw with a lid and metal latch.
