A Unique Idea for Groomsmen Gifts


My name is Pete Ekizian. I own and operate Executive Gift Shoppe. We opened in 1999 and we specialize in unique gifts for young professionals.

The title of this post may be a little misleading as what I’m about to presentwould be a great men’s gift idea for a ton of different occasions. Birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, you name it. However, we are entering wedding season and we have personalized groomsmen gifts on our mind!

Now, I’ve never been a huge proponent of the gift card. To me, its just cash that you can only use in one location. For example, a gift card to The Home Depot is basically a gift of money that you can only use at one store, The Home Depot. That being said, I have to change with the times and accept that gift cards are a hugely popular gift for men, women and children.

So here’s my gift idea. You have 6 groomsmen with 6 different interests, tastes and likes. How do you get them something that has a common theme without most of them being disappointed. Moreover, how do you get them personalized groomsmen gifts that will show you took the time to add a personal touch while still managing to get them all something they’ll use. Simple, a personalized money clip wallet with a gift card to their favorite store or restaurant!

For the builder, you get him a gift card to Lowes or The Home Depot. For the drinker, how about a gift card to TGIF or a local watering hole. Is one of your groomsmen a lover of fine cuisine, how about a gift card to a local watering hole? Whatever the venue of choice is for each of your buddies gift cards, tuck it neatly in a monogrammed leather wallet, money clip or money clip wallet. They’ll use the wallet/money clip forever and as long as you chose a gift card from a venue they love, they’re sure to get their use out of that too!

Or you can get them a football helmet they can eat popcorn out of. I’m sure they’d love that too. That’s called sarcasm.
