Personalized Beer Cooler, $30 from Etsy seller HeritageWedding
Gifting is hard. Gifting on a budget is really hard.
Especially when it’s for your favorite dudes. You want to get your groomsmen something awesome, yet thoughtful — but holy crap everything always seems so expensive. While it would be nice to be able to get them all big screen TVs or spring for a dudes’ trip to Vegas, that’s just not always something your bank account can muster. Have no fear, fellas! Even under a tight budget, you can find a wide variety of gift items that are perfect for groomsmen, whether they’re techies, foodies or just love lookin’ good. Here’s our list of gift ideas for your best buds so you can show ’em you love ’em without breaking the bank!

The groomsmen, you chose them for a reason. They’ve helped you through some rough spots and they make sure you’re gloriously plastered for every birthday. When it comes to your wedding, they’re the ones that are gonna help get you through all the stress and help make it a great day. So, you should properly thank them with an awesome gift. There are so many gift ideas out there, but I’m gonna simplify this list to five. Southern Hospitality Beard Company Starter Kit, $35
The well-groomed beard aficionado will appreciate this handsome beard starter kit. It comes with a Mud Scrub, packed with avocado oil and shea butter to keep everything soft and conditioned, orange peels to bring some of the energy back into your skin, and scented with rosemary, lavender and a bit of cedarwood for a crisp, earthy, manly smell. It also comes with the Heritage Beard Oil, to keep it conditioned and healthy, and a boar’s hair bristle brush.
Here’s a great way to not break the bank. These glass growlers are awesome for the guys, even if they’re not quite the beer-drinker type. They could be used in a number of other ways and can be engraved with almost anything you want.
Cufflinks, Tie Bars, Bottle Openers, and Money Clips, $35–$4000
Cufflinks.com is a great option for a variety of budgets. Plus, you can get special team cufflinks, fancy sets, or something fun and themed.
Here’s an idea: Hand your favorite guys a personalized cigar box filled with some Nicaraguans (like these). The presentation is so nice and would be a great thing to enjoy during the reception (outside, please).
SWIG makes some of the best flasks we’ve ever seen. Get them one of these gift sets and they’ll be floored with just the incredible gift packaging alone. Each one comes with a flask and funnel, and they can be engraved as well. I recommend checking out their site and seeing all the different sets they have to offer. Seriously, you might just pick one up for yourself, too. (Christen did.)
