The Worst Groomsmen Gifts

in Gift

There are so many ideas out there for groomsmen gifts. Traditional, zany, practical, you name it. What I haven't seen out there is the worst. What not to buy and what not to do. This article gives you suggestions so that you don't screw up your gifts for groomsmen, best man and ushers.

Here are suggestions of what not to do or buy:

1. Do not wait until the last minute. Some grooms will call up an online engraving shop on a Tuesday or Wednesday and say they need their gifts for Saturday. Yes, Saturday. Unbelievable. How long were you engaged? If you wait until the last possible moment and place an order for overnight, you still might not get your presents in time. UPS has been known to munch packages, misdeliver or lose packages. There is a 1% chance that your package will not arrive even if you select rush and overnight. So, in this case, the worst groomsman gifts are NO gifts.

2. Don't buy something for a guy that you know he will not use. If you friend Mark does not drink, don't get him a liquor flask. It is a waste of money and you just showed Mark that you don't care about him. 25 ounce sports mugs would have been a better choice. All of your guys can use a big mug. They can put beer, Gatorade, soda, water or whatever they want in that big glass.

3. Don't get your best man something totally cool and then give the rest of the guys lame stuff. Everyone knows your best man is a little more special to you. That is why he has the title of "Best Man." You're better off getting all the guys the same thing so there are no hurt feelings or resentment.

4. Don't give gift cards. This one is almost the laziest gift you can give. I suppose giving cash would be the laziest way to give a gift. A gift card says "Go buy your own present". This is so tacky and thoughtless. It is amazingly lame.

5. Don't pay for lap dances for the groomsmen. On the bachelor party night don't tell everyone you'll pay for lap dances all around and that's the gifts your guys get. This party is in your honor. You should not be footing the bill for anything. Not only that, you want to give a tangible gift, not a skuzzy memory.

Overall, think of how much you can afford and what your guys like. Get the gifts personalized for that special touch if it is possible. Give yourself 2 months prior to he wedding to get this task done so you don't stress yourself out.
