Cheap Groomsmen Gifts - The Largest List on the Internet

112 Cheap Groomsmen Gifts to Gift

You're too busy to hunt for Cheap Groomsmen Gifts, so we did it for you.  Cheap doesn't have to mean worthless.  There are tons of cool toys that buds would actually want.  Here are 111 gifts for grooms to consider.

There are a couple of main themes to think about:  Do your groomsmen drink (aggressively?).  Are they more the handy type?  Or are they dads (and need a cooler for their car)?  We've looked high and low for everything under the sun.  Some of these are obvious (money clips), some aren't (personalized decanter).  I'm sure you'll find one they'll appreciate (and actually use).

(Not a groom?  Send this to the groom!)

In its 5th year, the survey reveals Grooms are making more wedding decisions, Brides choosing more personalized décor options and a stronger reliance on Wedding Planners.

BOCA RATON, FL —(MARCH 27, 2017) – Today, David Annie, Senior Vice President of Wedding Insights at Wedding Favors Unlimited – the leading Wedding Favors Company in the World – announced results from its 2017 Wedding Trends Survey, the definitive analysis of wedding traditions and attitudes.  Since 2012, Wedding Favors Unlimited has conducted this comprehensive survey which provides trends and key insights in shifts in established and emerging trends of weddings in America. This study includes national and local statistics including how brides spend to decorate their wedding, how couples plan their weddings and the traditions they choose for their big day.

“Wedding Favors Unlimited is proud to present the 2017 Wedding Planning Survey. Our survey this year showed significant changes in what decisions couples make and how they plan.  Brides are reporting that Men play a much larger role in wedding décor decisions, with 47% participating in key design decisions, up from 29% the year before. Technology is a critical part of managing guests, with over 25% forgoing traditional paper invitations. Wedding Planners are increasingly helping Brides execute their plan, reaching a new high.” David said.  “Bridal décor has never been more relevant in personalizing a wedding day and WeddingFavorsUnlimited continues to be a significant source for Wedding Favors and Décor.”
