It’s a tradition that bride and groom thank their wedding party, with a thoughtful gift, for being with them on their big day. The bridesmaid’s gifts tend to be easy, but the groomsmen can be a little more difficult to shop for. Especially if you want to find meaningful and awesome groomsman gifts that don’t suck.

10 Groomsman Gift Ideas That Don’t Suck

Vanguard Pewter Tankard

For thousands of years, pewter has been used to make tankards and steins to serve beer in pubs across the world. In fact, when most pewter was replaced by porcelain in the 18th century, pub regulars opted to keep their personal tankards behind the bar for continued use. Pewter, as the go-to for tankards, withstood the test of time for a few reasons – it’s durable, doesn’t alter the taste of beer, easy to clean and won’t tarnish over time.

Probably the biggest reason pewter tankards like the Vanguard make an awesome groomsman gift that doesn’t suck? Pewter is proven to hold temperatures for longer, keeping their brewskis frosty and frothy. Made by The Crafted Cup Company, a pewter tankard is the perfect gift for the man who appreciates real craftsmanship, both in his cup and in its contents.

I had them engrave this tankard with a logo that I designed for our wedding because we wanted to keep it as a keepsake for our own use. To give as gifts, I’d recommend something more personal by engraving each groomsman’s name or a fun (only slightly embarrassing?) nickname. (The tankard is so shiny it’s a little tricky to photograph, but the engraving looks incredible in person.)

    Awesome gift list. I could pick a gift from this list for my brother. He is really hard to gift and he is always the last one I buy a gift for. I think he will love the large leather toiletry kit and the passport holder sincee he is always out traveling because of his job.

    Not a groomsman, but a beard wearer…my husband would love that Star Wars comb. I didn’t even realize there were options when it came to combs!

    Wow… so many great ideas. My husband could use that docking station on his nightstand, I’m thinking Christmas.

    No, these certainly don’t suck! So much better than the traditional flask. One that my husband got and never uses. These though, he’d definitely use.

    I absolutely love that passport cover. I’d gift it to one of the men in our family, only because it’s Christmas. Any other time of year, that bad boy would be all mine. :) I can def. see how it makes a great groomsman gift idea too! Awesome!
