Firstly, you may be asking, what exactly is a junior groomsman?
Well, a junior groomsman is a member of a wedding party who is too old to perform the role of ringbearer but is not old enough to be a groomsman yet.
Junior groomsmen (and junior bridesmaids) are often seen at weddings of an older sibling, or a second wedding if they’re a child of one of the members of the couple. Sometimes they’re even the children of close family friends.
Because junior groomsmen are usually teenage boys, you might be wondering what on earth a teenage boy would want as a gift on this special occasion; your wedding day.
Luckily, we have compiled a list of our favorite gift ideas, many of which can be personalized; handy if you have more than one helpful young man.
