Groomsmen Gifts Round-Up
November 9, 2009

I hope that everyone had a great weekend! It was blissful here in Boston so we spent most of the our days outside, playing in the leaves and eating way too many pumpkin donuts. Just the kind of weekend that totally recharges me and gets me excited for all of the prettiness that we have coming up on SMP this week. And I mean serious prettiness...a wedding by Jose Villa, an affair by Lisa Vorce and one of the coolest Veteran's Day stories you can imagine.

But for this morning, I wanted to kick off the week with a feature that our fabulous round-up editor, Carrie, put together just for you guys. After hearing so many requests to get great ideas on groomsmen gifts, Carrie has rounded up her favorite finds for the men in your lives. Love, love, love all of these little gems and am 100% sure that you will find some great ideas tucked inside.

I am really excited about today’s highly requested groomsmen gift Round Up. I think we all can agree that finding unique gifts for those boys can be quite a challenge, especially when it comes to wedding-related items. Keeping in mind that the groom will want to accomplish a few goals with his gift, I have pulled together some gift ideas today that are sure to cover all the bases: a little personal, a little practical, and rounded out with just some cool man gear. Here’s to those boys!

Groomsman Gifts: Round I

Row I: Bon Bonoiseau has fantastic accessories for the ladies, but I just adore their vintage money clips for the guys. In a wide assortment of charms, you can pick a different one for each groomsman. Colonel Littleton’s leather bound journal is not just for the Renaissance man. It’s rustic details and worn in monogram, make this journal suitable for all types of men. Added bonus: You even get a free mini Moon Pie with your order! Cuff links are always a good bet when it comes gifts for the groomsmen. I love these atlas cuff links found on Etsy- better yet, they are completely customizable.

Row II: Perfect for the academic type, these engraved leather book covers are completely original and can even be modeled after your own custom artwork. Faux mustache’s are all the rage these days, so why not gift your guys these cool mugs found on Etsy. Go the extra mile and stuff the mug with a tie for the big day or a gift card to your favorite store. Every guy could use this personalized shoeshine kit by Col. Littleton. All tucked inside a masculine case perfect for travel, this kit is a one-stop shop.

Row III: Nothing says “Thank you” to a group of men like a personalized poker set does. His buds might just break it out on the big weekend. For something completely unique, Ork Posters is a great way to show gratitude with a really cool concept. Customize the city to each one of your guys for added sentiment.This might just be the classiest kit for cigar lovers. Just add a cigar and you’ll be good-to-go.

We have SO much more coming up!
