Yes, we are still on our quest to find the perfect bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts for our many brides and grooms getting married this summer. At this point in time there is probably very little left on your “to do” list except buying that little something special that says just how much you appreciate their friendship an support. We love these inspiration boards from My Wedding Favors featuring best selling bridesmaid & groomsmen gifts.
Sometimes, you really do not need to be original. Products are generally best sellers because people like and want them as gifts so if you can’t decide what to give, choose something from these boards and cross another item off your “to do” list! If you were in a wedding party last weekend and were given the money clip, buy the growler. Or if your maid of honor gave out tote bags at her wedding consider the bridesmaid necklaces. Truthfully, it really doesn’t much matter, so do NOT over think this. Pick the one that you are initially drawn to!
Are you still searching for a fun, elegant & memorable groomsmen gift? Think Personalized Flask. Yes, as you can quickly see flasks come in all shapes, sizes and materials. The classic flask is either metal or metal & leather but today you can also find collapsible canvas flasks, vinyl wrapped flasks, and glass flasks. Their designs range from simple to well, not so simple such as a flask that looks like a retro cell phone or one that sports the insignia of your favorite NFL team or even a horn-shaped flask.
So where to begin? Flasks are hot and they are everywhere from the traditional wedding favor shops to interesting handmade flask designs on Etsy to a sterling silver flask from Tiffany & Co. Most quality flasks are priced from $25.00 – $35.00 but sterling silver and specialty genuine leather can cost you a pretty penny.
Like each bride, each groom has his own unique style (even if he doesn’t realize it ) so if we were choosing we would narrow our choices to the look most fitting the groom even if it doesn’t 100% go with the wedding theme. A groomsmen gift is all about the guy relationship so if you are all sports buddies go for the sporty flasks. If you are a fun loving goofy bunch, the mustache flasks might be just right, the camouflage flask might appeal a group of guys who go hunting together, or the traditional Wall Street guy might want to stick with a classic black or brown leather style
